Why Caring for Your Remaining Teeth Matters

Losing teeth is a natural part of aging, and although most of us find it to be an unfortunate fact of life, there’s no reason to lose hope as well. In fact, there’s every reason to celebrate the teeth you still have, especially those in your lower jaw. Now is the time to up your game when it comes to taking care of them.

Should you still attend regular cleanings for just a few remaining teeth? Absolutely! Are brushing and flossing still important? You bet! Read on to learn more about the importance of maintaining the care of your remaining teeth and how they enhance one’s quality of life.

How Partial Dentures Work

When you wear a complete or full upper denture, its retention depends on suction to your palate. Consequently, if you maintain and take care of remaining teeth on your upper arch, less of your palate needs to be covered since the remaining teeth provide an existing anchor. Even more importantly, we have no palate on our lower arch, so we depend on the integrity of our remaining teeth for the stability of a partial lower denture. That’s why it’s essential to keep those remaining teeth in tip-top shape.

Why Remaining Teeth Are Important

For the most comfortable and functional fit, lower partial dentures require attachment to strong, stable, and healthy teeth. The more remaining teeth, the better, so it’s crucial to attend cleanings and checkups at your New York City dentist to ensure the longevity of the few teeth you have left. Partial dentures are customized to fit your mouth and meet your unique needs, whether you’ve still got most of your teeth or just a few.

How Healthy Remaining Teeth Enhance Oral Health

It doesn’t matter if you have a full set of teeth or just a couple, caring for your teeth is caring for your gums. When you fail to care for your teeth, gum disease and inflammation can result. Our mouths are always changing, so making sure to visit your NYC dentist regularly will help to keep problems at bay and catch issues, like gum disease, early before they spiral out of control. Furthermore, it is advisable to have an annual oral cancer screening, preferably an advanced oral cancer screening that detects irregular cells before they can advance to actual cancer cells. Herald Square Dental and the Denture Center in Manhattan offers advanced Velscope screenings which take less than 10 minutes during a regular oral exam or a hygiene visit.

How to Keep Remaining Teeth Healthy

Brushing each tooth removes bacteria called plaque that tends to build up and cause cavities. Flossing prevents decay, so take care to floss your teeth every day. The hygienist removes tarter and plaque below the gum line and between teeth and may use medication when needed to prevent progression of gum disease. This is important now more than ever. As your teeth age, they require extra care. This goes for your gums too. And severe gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Brushing twice and flossing once daily and visiting your dentist and hygienist regularly are the best ways to keep your remaining teeth healthy.

Still have questions?

There’s no question about the value in protecting those last teeth. But if you’ve already lost all of your teeth, the optimal solution is implant supported dentures, especially for the lower arch. Although traditional dentures are a fine option for the upper arch, implants provide even more benefits, including leaving your palate uncovered and helping to maintain your jaw health.

Same Day Dentures FAQs

Can I Get My Teeth Pulled and Dentures in the Same Day?

Extractions and Dentures Same Day

At Herald Square Dental and the Denture Center, we go out of our way to ensure you don’t leave our office with missing teeth. So yes, you may have your teeth pulled and dentures fabricated and inserted the same day. You’ll arrive at our Manhattan office around 9am at which time we will begin gathering impressions and if unavoidable, perform extractions( oral surgery), first. Our renown cosmetic dentists in conjunction with our expert lab technicians will immediately set to work, creating your dentures, and we can insert them in the afternoon during that same appointment.

Is It Possible to Get Dentures in One Day?

Yes, we call Dentures in One Day “Dentures While-U-Wait” or “Same Day Dentures” at our New York Dental office. Our same-day denture patients begin the try-in process as soon as a few hours after having arrived in our office.

Can You Get Immediate Dentures?

Yes! Our expert cosmetic dentists make it a priority to offer the latest in dental technology to the NYC community, and we believe immediate dentures are often the best solution to a full arch of missing teeth or for partial dentures in many cases. Come in for an appointment for immediate dentures, and at the end of the day, we send you home with a set of beautiful teeth. Even premium dentures with porcelain teeth may be done the same day.

How Quickly May I Get New Dentures?

Our on-premises denture laboratory has made the turnaround time for a new set of dentures quick without compromising quality or cosmetics. Simply put, you can receive new teeth in one day. Drs. Pasch, Yam, and Shirzadnia and our expert technicians collaborate to create comfortable, natural-looking dentures within hours of your arrival in our office.

Is It Best to Get Immediate Dentures or Wait?

Latest research shows that immediate dentures aid in the healing process, so getting them as soon as your teeth are extracted is ideal. Immediate dentures protect your gums as they heal, and they minimize bleeding. After an extraction, your gums are at risk of developing a dry socket if the blood clot over the wound is accidently dislodged, but immediate dentures help prevent this condition by holding the clot in place.

Best Fitting Dentures in NYC

When Ill-Fitting Dentures Lead to Oral Issues

Ill-fitting dentures can lead to other problems, including:

  • tissue overgrowth
  • ulcers
  • fungal infections
  • good old-fashioned irritation

Much of this occurs when food gets trapped and lead to plaque buildup.

All of this can cause obvious discomfort.

The Natural Wear and Tear of Dentures

In addition to natural changes in our mouths and the resulting issues of physical irritation, the appliances themselves can break down.

Everyday wear and tear along with the pressure that comes from chewing can lead to denture cracks and fractures.

When Eating with Dentures is Uncomfortable

If you have a tendency to remove your dentures in order to eat because they rub and cause soreness, there is something wrong.

They may just need a simple adjustment or they may need to be relined.

When this happens, give us a call immediately to schedule an exam so we may address the sore spots or prevent continued rocking of your appliance promptly. Once you leave with the relined or adjusted denture, it may take 24 hours to feel comfortable now that the rubbing and rocking have been remedied.

When Improper Care Damages Dentures

Additionally, The way in which you clean and care for your dentures can shorten their lifespan. Using hot water tends to warp the acrylic, and a hard-bristled toothbrush can damage the appliance.

Ready for your dentures to fit comfortably?

The best way to extend the life of your dentures is regular checkups, assessments, and adjustments at our New York City office.

If your denture is loose, rocks back and forth, and isn’t well seated, then it’s prone to breakage.

If you suffer with loose dentures come for an evaluation to see whether our laboratory reline While-U-Wait can quickly and comfortably remedy the situation.

Don’t wait to get help. Make an appointment with us today.

Dentures While-U-Wait in NYC

Miniature construction workers fixing teeth
Even the best dentures break. And when this happens, whether it’s during a date or a Zoom meeting, getting them repaired suddenly becomes top priority. Not only are your speech and eating habits affected when dentures are damaged, but your appearance and self-confidence suffers as well. The sooner they can be fixed, the sooner you can carry on with your everyday life. The good news is that we can repair your dentures if they’re broken and reline them if they’re loose in our Manhattan office While-U-Wait.

Dentures Can Break

It’s not uncommon for dentures, like most things, to get dropped, stepped on, chewed by pets, and damaged by hard foods. Damage can happen during a meal or when you’ve accidentally left them out rather than storing them in a safe place, so dentures are not exempt from accidents. In fact, under certain circumstances, dentures can snap completely in half, chip, and even lose teeth. What’s most important to remember when this happens is to refrain from trying to fix them yourself. Attempting to do so can lead to more serious damage that would require completely new dentures rather than a repair or reline. The best thing you can do when your dentures break is contact us, and we’ll get you in as soon as possible for a same day denture repair While-U-Wait.

Convenience of an In-House Laboratory

How is it possible that we are able to repair your dentures in a matter of hours While-U-Wait? It’s our in-house laboratory that makes this convenient option a game changer. Unlike your average dental practice, our New York office fabricates, repairs, and relines dentures on site. That means repairs with us are affordable, timely, long-lasting, and quality.

One-Stop Solution

The benefits of an in-house lab range from dentist/technician collaboration to accessible skills and tools that we have on hand, all resulting in superior work and timely repairs that can happen all in one place: our NYC office. This allows you to return to normal life as quickly as possible.

Wait While We Make

Because we insist on providing only the highest quality prosthetics for our patients, we don’t perform chairside relines as many neighborhood dental practices do. Whereas a neighborhood dentist would need to take your denture and send it to a lab, we work our magic using a combination of highly trained and experienced lab technicians and premium dental tools in our lab to deliver genuine fabrications and repairs While-U-Wait comfortably in our waiting room.

Leave the office smiling!

When it comes to caring for your dental needs and missing teeth issues, we promise you won’t leave our office without teeth. Since we have specialized equipment and materials close at hand in our on-site lab, equipped with instrumentation specific to denture repairs and relines, we guarantee the restoration of your dentures and your smile quickly and precisely While-U-Wait.

Adding Teeth to Existing Dentures

New York City, NY

When you replace missing teeth with a partial denture, chances are you’ll have another tooth to replace in the future. That’s just the way tooth loss tends to work-once it begins, it continues. The good news is that in many cases, partial dentures can support additional teeth.

Can I add teeth to my partial dentures?

There’s no easy yes-or-no answer for this question, because, just as all patients are unique, so are each of these cases. The best way to determine if your dentures are eligible to have another tooth added, they need to be evaluated by a dentist. We offer free consultations at our NYC Denture Center.

Natural Tooth Loss

The most common reasons you might lose a tooth, besides trauma or injury, are decay, gum disease, and other health related disorders. And when tooth loss is unavoidable, which is often the case, dentures of some variety are an excellent solution. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth and can be added to if need be. They are a removeable option that fit to your gums, secured by suction or clasps to adjacent teeth.

Broken Denture

At The Denture Center, we are usually able to add teeth to your existing denture if you find yourself with a broken tooth or damaged denture. We take into consideration the material of the denture, the position of the broken tooth, and the condition of your remaining teeth. Our on-site dental laboratory can do most denture repairs While-U-Wait, including adding teeth, laboratory relines and adjustments.

Denture Upgrade

Occasionally, it’s wisest to replace your partial denture completely rather than adding replacement teeth. Dentures tend to need adjustments, relines, or replacement as our mouths change and impact the way they fit. Our jawbone shrinks which leads to gum recession, also contributing to an ill fit. When there’s been enough change in your anatomy or damage to your denture, usually every 4-6 years, new dentures are recommended.

Adjusting and repairing dentures yourself is a dangerous endeavor, as it can cause more harm to the denture and to your health. Call us if your denture cracks, chips, or breaks, or if one of the teeth come lose, and we will make any necessary denture repairs or adjustments.

Holistic Dental Health in New York NY

At Herald Square Dental NYC, our goal is that you not only look your best but also feel great about yourself. We have found that the best dental outcomes result when we treat the whole person with a holistic approach.

What is a holistic approach?

As your top New York dentists, we believe dental treatments and oral care are an integral part of your body and your overall health, and we recognize that the way you look and feel about your oral health can have a major influence on other aspects of your body and wellbeing. The primary aim of our care is to resolve your dental issues while working in harmony with the rest of your body. A key component in our holistic care is the way in which we take a close look at each individual patient’s medical and family history, making sure that no stone is left unturned. In that way, we are aware of potential contributing factors with regard to each person’s oral health and can then advise and propose treatment accordingly.

Why choose holistic dentistry as your dental option?

Your body is natural, and we think your dental treatments should be too. Combining the best of modern science, knowledge, education, and credentials with scientifically proven natural care for your symptoms, we want to educate you and present you with an option that will affect your entire wellness. We recognize that there are well-documented systemic links between your oral health and other systemic diseases, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Cancer

Does caring for our teeth affect the rest of our wellbeing?

One of the best ways to help prevent serious health problems is to have excellent oral health. Your oral health affects your overall health.

If you allow the bacteria to remain in your mouth unchecked, it can lead to gum disease and inflammation, causing your immune system to weaken and ignore other parts of your body. And the secret to having good oral health is to practice good oral hygiene and visit our dental office regularly. Your goal should be teeth free of cavities and disease and gums that don’t bleed when you floss and brush. Use those as an indication of your overall health. Our dentists specialize in a holistic approach to oral care which means we consider your whole-body health as we care for your teeth and gums. We understand the deep connection between good oral health and its positive effect on digestion, the heart and circulatory system, and especially the immune system.

How to Keep Yourself and Your Teeth Healthy

Now more than ever, our dental health and whole-body health are directly impacting our emotional and mental health. How can we, in the midst of the seemingly endless COVID-19 pandemic, take care of our mental

health? How can we stay connected with our people? How can we foster habits that promote a healthy body? Consider choosing a few of the following activities to incorporate into your daily routines.

  • Online gym classes through apps, such as Orangetheory, Yoga-Go
