As you grow older, you may experience tooth loss. Losing teeth can affect your self-esteem, appearance, and ability to chew properly. Luckily, the dentists here at Union Street Dentistry in the Albany and Schenectady, NY area offer dentures as a replacement for missing teeth.
Dentures are not permanent replacements, they are meant to be taken out and put back in as needed. Depending on your situation, dentures come in two main types: full or partial. Full dentures completely fit over your gums, while partial dentures rest on a metal framework attached to your teeth. All of our dentures are custom made. We take an impression of your upper and lower mouth to create a denture that’s an exact match to you.
After you make an appointment with us to receive impressions, we’ll make your custom dentures. Afterward, we’ll offer you information about how to care for your dentures. We recommend the following tips and tricks to keep your dentures in the best shape possible:
