Dentures Selkirk NY

We know that the prospect of getting dentures for the first time can be a little demoralizing. Your goal for your smile was a full set of healthy, natural teeth that would last a long, long time.

But life happens, and things don’t always turned out as they were planned. If you are faced with getting new dentures, you can turn to our Selkirk dental office for help!

There’s a lot of misinformation floating around about dentures based on what people think they know. This is because many people don’t know about the improvements dentures have gone through in the last 25 years. We want you to be correctly informed about denture treatment, so we would like to separate fact from fiction:

Fiction: Dentures will always look fake and artificial.
Fact: Improvements in the materials and techniques used for dentures allow us to create artificial teeth that look as close to natural as possible. 

Fiction: Dentures will always be uncomfortable
Fact: Gone are the days of rigid, uncomfortable dentures. Today, using updated materials, we can create a set of dentures that conforms closely to the unique shape of your jaw for a more comfortable fit than you ever thought possible.

Fiction: Dentures restrict your ability to enjoy your favorite foods
Fact: This would be true if modern dentures didn’t fit well, but they do! We also have the option of providing the ultimate in stability with dental implants that hold your denture firmly in place.

We think it’s time to let go of outdated ideas about dentures and embrace a new age of dentistry.

If you have been reluctant to seek information about dentures, we encourage you to call our Selkirk, NY dental office to arrange a consultation. We would love to tell you more about the ways that dentures have improved, and how they can help your smile!
