If you have many missing teeth that need to be replaced, our expert dentist, Dr. Lee, can provide you with attractive, comfortable, and fully-functional dentures at our dental office in Great Neck, Leeman Dental; once you receive your dentures it is important that your dentures receive excellent maintenance and care.

Once you leave our dental office in Great Neck with your new dentures, we know that you will be very happy with the way that they look and feel. However, do not be surprised if in the beginning they feel a bit awkward in your mouth. This is to be expected, as wearing new dentures is always an adjustment. However, this feeling will soon go away, and you will feel extremely comfortable wearing your new dentures. A patient can get either complete or partial dentures. Both types of dentures need to be removed and cleaned on a daily basis, as described by our dentist. It is important when you clean your new dentures, that you remove them while standing over the sink, or a table, over which you have placed a folded towel. This way, if the dentures accidentally fall, they will not be broken. It is also important to eat soft foods while you are getting used to your new dentures. As you move on to harder foods that require more chewing, you will want to be sure to cut your food into small pieces, and chew evenly on both sides of your mouth. If your dentures ever become broken or damaged, never attempt to fix the problem by yourself; instead, our dentist should be immediately contacted for an appointment. The dentures may even be able to be fixed right here at our office. Additionally, you do not want your dentures to remain out of liquid whenever they are outside of your mouth for any extended period of time, as they can become dry and cracked. Again, our office will provide you with complete denture care instructions.
