Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures

Question: Does The Silverstrom Group employ the latest technology when creating a patient’s dentures?

Answer: Yes. Typically, the biggest drawbacks of dentures are slippage when eating and chewing. To address this humiliating issue, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom use computer-imaging technology, along with digital x-rays, to examine your bite and design your dentures. Our goal is to create a set of comfortable and secure dentures that don’t slip.

Question: Will my dentures look natural?

Answer: Your Livingston cosmetic dentists use a variety of materials for creating dentures, but the preferred method is porcelain. Dental porcelain mimics the translucent quality and strength of tooth enamel. As a result, prosthetic teeth crafted from porcelain look like natural teeth.

Question: What are implant-retained dentures?

Answer: A series of titanium posts will be inserted into your jawbone. The bone tissue will bond with the posts, anchoring them into place. Finally, your full set of custom-made dentures will be attached to the posts. This allows patients to receive permanently affixed dentures.

Question: Can dentures improve my health?

Answer: Yes. Patients missing several, or in many cases all, of their teeth often have to subsist on a diet of soft foods. Soon, they become deprived of essential nutrients, negatively impacting their health. Dentures allow patients to eat a variety of foods with ease, improving overall health.
