Dentures were, for a long time, the only solution for replacing several missing teeth. In modern dentistry, they are no longer the only option. They are, however, sometimes the best.

About Dentures

There are three types:

  • Partials, used when some teeth are still present
  • Complete dentures used to replace an entire arch of teeth
  • Implant-retained dentures – New You Dentures

With a focus on comfort and perfection, all of these options can be customized to fit naturally into your smile, restoring both function and aesthetics.

One of the largest reasons people choose dentures over alternatives such as dental bridges is that they do not require any preparation of surrounding teeth. Traditional dentures are secured into the mouth with adhesives, which can help reduce strain on adjacent teeth while still restoring your smile.

However, it is important to remember that adhesives are not as secure as bridges and can come loose at inopportune times. This should be a consideration prior to determining which option will best meet your needs.

We recommend New You Dentures to our patients because it allows the dentures to be secured to the jaw. New You Dentures also take neuromuscular dentistry into consideration for your design. We’re able to not only restore your smile with a secure solution but enhance your facial features. Unlike traditional dentures, New You Dentures are custom-crafted through every aspect of the design to deliver the best results possible.

New You Dentures

Our most popular form of dentures we offer our patients are New You Dentures. New You Dentures focuses on restoring your youthful appearance a beautiful smile. When you lose your teeth, it’s normal for 50% to 75% of your jawbone to be lost forever which can result in a sunken facial appearance. Unfortunately, traditional options don’t restore your face’s natural contours that are lost with your teeth. This includes full lips, lower facial features, and a strong profile.

With New You Dentures, Dr. Clancy uses your existing jaw bone as the base that is handcrafted to best match your face back to its original proportions that helped you look young and healthy. This neuromuscular approach provides you with a beautiful smile you feel confident in. Some patients even look up to 20 years younger! Transforming lives is our specialty.

An alternative to both adhesives and bridges are implant-supported ones. With the use of dental implants, our dentists can provide the most reliable hold for your dentures while also preventing jaw shrinkage and collapse.

Implant-supported dentures can be retained by a ball and socket or by a bar and clips. This will depend on how many teeth are being replaced and will be customized to meet your particular needs.

There is no single solution that is optimal for all mouths. Our dentists will work closely with you, taking into account your needs and desires to help you find the most effective tooth replacement option. In most cases, New You Dentures are the best solution for every smile.
