Aging Process: Careful evaluation of facial changes are needed to evaluate how the denture needs to be extended so as to restore the nature contours and profile of the face. Facial changes are due to bone loss over time and only properly fitting dentures can reduce the amount of bone loss. Implants will however, prevent further bone loss. Nutritional analysis is also critical.k here to change this text

WHAT IS A DENTURE?
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF DENTURES?
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF COMPLETE DENTURES?
A Complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks. During this time the patient will go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.
WHAT MAKES OUR CUSTOM DENTURES BETTER THAN TRADITIONAL DENTURES?
At Advanced Cosmetic and Implant dentistry in Morristown, NJ we customize our dentures so that they will match your unique smile and bite, let you speak and chew comfortably, and improve your appearance and self-confidence. Dr. Barry A. Kaplan, a dentist with over 25 years of experience offers both partial and full custom dentures out of his Morristown office, combining advanced dental technology with custom prosthetics for the best possible fit, stability, and lifelike appearance. They will allow you to eat most of the foods you love, and eliminate the risk of embarrassment, ultimately helping you feel better about yourself, and your smile.
We offer lifelike, premium acrylic teeth which utilize a 3-layered tooth structure for a beautiful smile and a natural look. The teeth in the denture are available in multiple shapes, sizes, and shades of white, so you won’t get the “ stamped out- false teeth look” which is so common with standard dentures. The tissue color of the our denture is matched to your existing gums and facial complexion. Dr. Barry A. Kaplan’s dentures appear more natural because they are custom designed and handcrafted to compliment your personality, age, gender, and physical appearance.
Looking closely at someone with a beautiful smile and straight teeth, one will notice that each tooth is not precisely aligned with its neighboring tooth. Instead, the placement of the teeth varies slightly to create a unique, beautiful and natural smile line. At Advanced Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Morristown, NJ the teeth are individually hand set to insure this occurs. When your teeth (natural or false), are the proper height, the lower portion of your face is lengthened, for a youthful, natural appearance. This avoids the “collapsed” appearance caused by missing teeth or ill-fitting plates.
Dr. Barry A. Kaplan’s in-office dental laboratory in Morristown, NJ truly sets him apart, allowing him to custom design and craft his dentures to the very highest standards. He uses custom-molded impressions, precisely anatomically correct, to individualize treatment. His dentures are injection-molded and heat and pressure-cured, which reduces the sizes of the pores in the material. This allows for improved polishing of the denture, which results in less staining and less opportunity for bacteria and plaque to grow, making the denture more odor-resistant. His denture technicians are highly trained and experienced. They work on each case individually with a specific and detailed prescription from the doctor.
We utilize State-of-the-Art, premium materials which are the lightest weight and most durable available, resulting in higher-impact strength and longer life. Your comfort is our priority .
