Dr Malki has been my dentist and my children’s dentist and now my granddaughters dentist. Always a pleasure seeing him. I held off going post COVID-19 until today. I’m writing to tell everyone there is nothing to be nervous about. His office has top of the line air filtration machines in all the rooms. Staff masked. New air suction machine while work done on teeth. Disposable one time use covers and gowns. He also has a new dental hygienist named Jackie who has a very gentle touch in teeth cleaning. Highly recommend her. Don’t postpone any longer.

Types of Dentures

When deciding between dentures, it is important to keep several factors in mind, including the extent of your tooth loss, the overall cost of treatment, and your lifestyle. Dr. Malki can explain the benefits of each option and recommend the one best suited to you. There are a few different types of dentures, including:
Patient removing dentures

Full Dentures

A complete denture replaces an entire arch of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. An upper denture covers the roof of your mouth and teeth, and the lower one is shaped to cover just the teeth. The end result is restored oral function, and the appearance that your natural teeth are still in place.

Partial denture fitted onto model of teeth

Partial Dentures

A partial denture consists of an acrylic, gum-colored base, artificial teeth, and metal hooks to hold the appliance in place. Partials are a removable alternative to bridges and work well for patients whose missing teeth are not next to one another.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are prosthetic teeth that are permanently affixed to dental implants. The implants are surgically placed in the jawbone in strategic locations, and the dentures attach to the implants with a ball-and-socket connector. They can replace an entire arch of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or both.

Traditional Denture Process

Oral Exam

During your initial consultation at our practice with Dr. Malki, he will conduct an full evaluation of your oral health and may also recommend x-rays or a cone beam CT scan to examine the underlying structures of your smile.

Impressions & Design

If you decide to proceed with traditional dentures, we will take custom impressions of your smile and design your dentures.

Fabrication

We will send your design specifications, impressions, and any other important information to our trusted dental lab.

Immediate Dentures

During the time it takes to fabricate the dentures, we can provide you with a temporary set of immediate dentures.

Dentures Repair

/

Over time, changes to the gums and dental arch necessitate denture realignment. We perform denture repair to make sure your dentures function and look as good as possible.

Implant-Supported Dentures Treatment

With standard dental implants, Dr. Malki must place up to six implants in the upper or lower jaw to support a full denture.
With standard dental implants, Dr. Malki must place up to six implants in the upper or lower jaw to support a full denture.

Implant Placement

Implant posts are titanium posts that look like small screws. Dr. Malki surgically places these screws into the jawbone through small incisions made in your gums.

Healing 

Once the implants are in place, Dr. Malki will close the incisions with small dissolvable stitches. Recovery takes approximately three to six months. During this time, your jawbone fuses with the implant, which creates the permanent and stable foundation needed to support your dentures.

Custom Dentures

Once you have healed and your implants are stable, our dentist can attach your permanent dentures to your implants.

Implant-Supported Dentures Questions

How Many Implants Will I Need?

Some patients may not require as many as six dental implants and can instead achieve their goals with only four implant posts. During your consultation at our dentistry practice serving River Edge, NJ, Paramus, NJ, and other areas of Bergen County, NJ, our dentist will determine how many implants need to be placed.

Can I Wear My Current Denture While I Heal?

In some cases, your current dentures can be worn while you heal from dental implant surgery. If, however, Dr. Malki determines that your current denture is unsuitable or will hinder the healing process, he may be able to provide a temporary restoration for you to wear for a couple of weeks until he determines that you can wear your dentures. 

How Long Do Dentures Last?

With proper care, your dentures may last 10 years or more. Dental implants can last a lifetime. To extend the lifespan of all restorations, be sure to clean your dentures, any remaining teeth, and gums as directed. It is also important to visit the dentist regularly.
