When you are missing teeth, it can be difficult to feel comfortable smiling and laughing in front of other people. For patients who are missing some or all of their teeth, Dr. Robert B. Ruyak, DMD provides full dentures right in our Bethlehem, PA office. Dr. Ruyak also provides partial dentures for those who are only missing a few teeth.
Full dentures are a replacement for every single tooth in your mouth. If a few teeth are remaining, they will be extracted before the dentures are created. The dentures are created to fit and look natural to each patient. Depending on the patient’s lifestyle, we are able to place the dentures conventionally or immediately. If they are placed conventionally, this means that the gums are allowed to heal from any extractions before the dentures are fitted. Immediate dentures are placed right away, so no time is spent without teeth. However, the patient will probably need the dentures re-fit after the gums heal.
For those who are only missing a few teeth, partial dentures are available. They are affixed to stable teeth to keep them in place like bridges and they are removable.
You want to be able to put your best smile forward. If you think dentures may be right for you, contact the office of Dr. Robert B. Ruyak, DMD by calling (610) 861-0777 or by visiting our website, www.drrobertruyak.com.
