Dentures are one solution for missing teeth that can help you speak and eat more easily. You’ll enjoy greater self-confidence, knowing that you have an attractive smile that people will notice. If you are considering getting dentures in Virginia Beach, keep reading to learn more about your options.
When you lose teeth, a dental denture can restore your smile. A denture contains either a full or partial set of upper or lower teeth, which you can either remove each night or have permanently attached to implants. Because a denture is a custom made appliance with options for different teeth shades, it will fit well and closely resemble your natural teeth.
You have several options; our dentist would be glad to help you decide which option is best for you after a thorough examination of your gums and your existing teeth.
A full denture, also called a complete denture, is a fixed or removable dental appliance that contains enough artificial teeth to replace a full set of upper or lower natural teeth.
Instead of replacing an entire arch of teeth, a partial denture allows you to replace only the missing teeth if you still have functioning teeth left. You will want to smile more often if there are no gaps in your upper or lower set of teeth.
A flexible partial denture functions just as well as a bulky, rigid denture, better in fact because it moves with your mouth. Instead of metal clasps, a flexible denture will have virtually invisible gum colored clasps.
If you are looking for an affordable way to guarantee that your dentures never move in your mouth, an implant-supported denture is a good choice. The denture snaps on to the implants, and then snaps off easily when you want to remove it.
The All-on-4 concept is a way to affix a permanent denture using only four implants, two in a vertical position and two at an angle. With your All-on-4 dental implants, you will be able to eat all the foods you ate before with your natural teeth.
The steps involved vary on the type of denture selected; however, you should expect to have our dentist take an impression of your mouth, which the dental lab needs to create a denture that fits you. You may need extractions as well. The last step of the process is a fitting, where our dentist makes sure your new denture fits correctly.
If you visit us for an exam and consultation, our dentist will give you an estimate of your total dentures cost after determining whether you need a full or partial denture, any extractions and whether you’ve decided on removable or permanent dentures.
A soft denture reline creates a new surface on the plate of your denture to make it fit better and feel more comfortable. You will enjoy the comfort for several years before you will need a new soft reline.
