Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some of your natural teeth still remain. The two types of full dentures are conventional or immediate, and Dr. Berger will help you to decide which is best for you. A conventional denture is ready to be placed inside the mouth about eight to twelve weeks after the teeth have been removed and when the gum tissue has started the healing process. Immediate dentures have been made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. Over several appointments, the denture development process takes about three to six weeks. Once our North Valley Stream family dentist determines what type of appliance is best for you, measurements will be taken as well as a series of impressions of your jaw. Impressions, models, wax forms, and plastic patterns, in the exact shape and position of the denture, will be made from these impressions. We will have you try this model on several times and it will be evaluated for color, shape, and fit before the final denture is cast.

We let our patients know that even though dentures are not real teeth, you need to care for them as if they are. Before removing your dentures, you should brush them to remove plaque and food particles. After they have been removed you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. You could ruin your dentures by trying to adjust them yourself so you should always seek assistance from Our North Valley Stream family dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose. With your well-being and oral health as a goal, you will find Dr. Berger’s exceptional care a comfort when it comes to your denture needs.

Straightening your teeth can be a pleasure thanks to the new state of the art technology that Kenneth Berger, DDA & Associates offers with Invisalign. If you were under the impression that orthodontics means traditional metal braces along with the accompanying mouth filled with metal wires that can be seen from outer space, then you are in for a most pleasant surprise.

Invisalign represents the most current advancement in orthodontics. It is a system that uses a series of clear aligners. They are nearly invisible so you will not have to feel awkward about the cosmetic consequences as you would with metal braces. With Invisalign, our North Valley Stream cosmetic dentist uses 3-D technology to fashion each of your clear aligners to fit you perfectly. Each aligner is designed for a specific stage in your teeth straightening. You will wear each one for about two weeks and then move on to the next one in the series. The precise calibration makes for a steady journey to straightening your teeth. In total, somewhere between 12 and 48 aligners will be utilized. You wear them all day and even all night, taking out your aligner only for eating, brushing, and flossing.

When you come in for a consultation, our North Valley Stream cosmetic dentist will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Most people can benefit from the advantages that it has to offer, but if there are any factors that may exclude you from having Invisalign then you can find out as soon as possible. Bear in mind that misaligned teeth are not only a detriment to having the best smile possible, but they can also lead to discomfort and pain as well as dental and periodontal problems. Because crooked teeth can be more difficult to brush and floss between, plaque is more challenging to remove. It’s presence can cause tooth decay and gum disease.

When you consider that Invisalign can straighten your teeth easily and without deterring from your appearance, it is easy to see why it is so popular. Our North Valley Stream cosmetic dentist is pleased to offer it. Call us today to schedule an appointment and get started right away.
