Are dentures the best choice for your missing teeth? We would like to help you answer that question; keep reading to learn about the various types of dentures in Virginia Beach available to you.
A dental denture is an oral prosthetic device that replaces missing teeth. It will improve a denture wearer’s facial appearance, preventing it from looking sunken. Dentures increase self-confidence and improve a person’s ability to eat their favorite foods as well.
Everyone has unique needs; our experienced dentists will help you decide on a denture that fits both your lifestyle and your budget.
A complete denture replaces either a full set of upper or lower teeth. Either a complete denture will rest on your gums or it can be supported by implants. Call us to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists who will help you decide which type is best for you.
A partial denture is used when you have missing teeth, but healthy teeth in the same row as well. The denture is either rigid or flexible and you will remove it at night to give your gum tissue a chance to rest.
In addition to being lightweight and much thinner than a rigid-acrylic partial denture, a flexible denture has natural color clasps, instead of metal clasps, so others do not notice the denture when you speak or laugh.
An implant-supported denture can be a removable one that snaps on and off the implants or a permanent denture. Both types allow you to speak and enjoy a meal without worrying about wobbly dentures.
Yes, the denture is permanent, affixed in your mouth by two vertical and two angled implants. The denture feels like a natural set of teeth because there is no plate. The All-on-4 denture is easy to take care of as well, as you’ll brush the denture just like it was a set of natural teeth.
On your first visit, our dentist will make impressions of your mouth and perform any necessary extractions and/or place implants. While you heal, a dental lab is fabricating your denture using the impressions. You will have your final fitting once our dentist receives your denture from the lab.
When our patients are concerned about what dentures cost, we explain the various styles available and how related services, such as extractions, can affect the final price. After a consultation and an examination, our dentist will be able to give you an estimate of your total cost, considering the style of denture you have selected.
A denture can begin to cause discomfort after several years as your gums change shape. A soft denture reline is a long lasting, pliable material that feels better on your gum than hard acrylic. It eliminates sore spots, which keep people from wearing their dentures daily. You can expect the soft reline to last several years.
If you’re ready to restore your smile with affordable quality dentures, we will be happy to help you select the right dentures and we will ensure that they fit correctly so you can wear them all day without any discomfort. Contact us today for more information and to schedule your appointment.
