An understanding that only a doctor with years of training and expertise can offer. Making sure to stay on the cutting-edge of all progress with dentures, we make sure that our patients function as healthy, active adults. When it comes to dentures, not only can tooth loss be considerably improved, but dentures enhance your appearance and well-being. Dr. Sood, and our dedicated staff, will work with you to assure you make an informed decision as to whether dentures are the ideal choice for you.

Partial dentures are used when some of your natural teeth still remain, while full dentures are needed when all the teeth are missing. The two types of full dentures are conventional or immediate, and Dr. Sood will do a full evaluation to help you to decide which is best for you. A conventional denture can be placed inside your mouth about eight to twelve weeks after your teeth have been removed, and when your gum tissue has started its healing process. Immediate dentures have been made in advance and can be placed as soon as your teeth are removed. Developing your dentures is a process that takes about three to six weeks, and over several appointments. Once our Garden City South dentist
determines what type of appliance is most appropriate for you, measurements will be taken as well as a series of impressions of your jaw, as well as models, wax forms, and plastic patterns. A model will be made and we will have you try it on several times to be evaluated for color, shape, and fit before casting your final denture.
Our Garden City South dentist
lets our patients know that even though dentures are not real teeth, you need to care for them as if they are. You should brush your dentures to remove plaque and food particles, before removing them, and then place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. You could ruin your dentures by trying to adjust them yourself so make sure to seek assistance from Dr. Sood if they feel loose or uncomfortable.
