Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Patients who have lost all or most of their teeth are often candidates for dentures. Your dentist in Park Slope will examine your mouth to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Depending on the results of your consultation, your dentist will create a personalized plan. It’s not uncommon for patients to need a little prep-work, such as tooth extractions or periodontal therapy. Although you may require additional treatments, it ensures your new smile will have a healthy foundation.
Types of Dentures
Dental prosthetics have changed quite a bit over the years. Dr. Sapienza has remained at the forefront to offer the most advanced tooth replacement methods. You have more options than ever to restore your smile. Depending on your degree of tooth loss and preferences, you might be a candidate for:
If you still have most of your teeth and they are healthy, you might be a candidate for a partial denture. It’s an oral prosthesis that fills the space of your missing teeth using recreations attached to a gum-colored base. It will feature clips or clasps to use your remaining teeth to hold it in place. Although the teeth will be fake, they will seamlessly blend in with your smile.
If you’ve lost all your natural teeth, a full denture will restore your smile. Our office uses state-of-the-art technology to craft a custom denture that will fit your mouth like a glove. It is held in place using suction or an adhesive, so you can laugh, eat, and speak without any worries.

You’ll benefit from a nearly perfect replica of your real smile.
