Crowns, Bridges, Dentures, Implants
I currently have a "piece" attached to two teeth (18 years ago) It is coming loose and I now need to have an upper denture made. I only have one one molar and the two filed teeth holding the "piece". I work two jobs and cannot be out of work for more than a week. Is it possible to have the teeth removed and a denture made in that time and if so, where in the area of Mays Landing, New Jersey is a good dentist to do this. Thank you.
I would look for a prosthodontist in your area for an evaluation. (See links below.) It is my experience that making the denture should take about 5 visits, each about 1 hour; usually spread out over several weeks. You should not need to miss a week of work.
