Dentures in Virginia

Losing an adult tooth can change your appearance and make it difficult to chew and speak. Despite the loss, you can still have an attractive smile with a dental appliance.

What Are Dentures?

Custom-crafted dental appliances, these artificial teeth are affixed to a removable framework or a permanent implant. In addition to supporting your facial structure and preserving oral function, they can restore your smile and improve your self-confidence. With proper care, these dental appliances can last many years making them a solid investment in your long-term dental health.

Types of Dentures

Various types of dental appliances are available. After a thorough examination, our dentists can help you decide which is best for your individual circumstances. Potential options include:

Full Dentures

These dental appliances, known as complete dentures, are designed to replace all the natural teeth in your upper or lower jaw. Usually fully removable, they may rest on your gums or be anchored in place by dental implants.

Partial Dentures

Using a bridge-like structure, a partial denture enables you to retain healthy, adjacent teeth. A partial denture can replace one or more teeth. Unlike a bridge, which is permanently attached to supporting teeth, a partial denture has metal clasps that slip over adjacent teeth, enabling you to remove and clean the appliance.

Flexible Partial Dentures

Designed from lightweight, flexible materials, these appliances bend with your mouth for increased comfort. They use flexible clasps and a soft base rather than metal and a rigid material. Custom tinting allows the gum material to blend with your own.

Implant-Supported Dentures

While traditional versions rest on the gum, implant-supported dentures are held in place by two or more implants, depending upon your specific circumstances. They are typically required only for the lower jaw because the upper jaw usually provides the necessary stability. An implant-supported appliance can still be removed for cleaning.

Getting Dentures

The process of getting new affordable quality dentures will vary based on the type of dental appliance chosen, as well as the condition of your teeth and gums. The procedure typically involves taking measurements and making an impression of your mouth to ensure that the appliance will fit properly inside your mouth and replicate your bite accurately. If necessary, the dentist will extract any diseased teeth, and place implant supports and a temporary dental appliance. When your permanent replacement appliance is ready, the dentist will fit it and make adjustments to ensure the comfort and functionality of your replacement teeth.

How Much Do Dentures Cost?

The cost of treatment depends upon a number of factors. These include the type of oral appliance chosen, the cost of the materials used to make the appliance and the extent of any required preparatory treatments. Our dentists can help you obtain affordable quality dentures that meet your unique needs. Contact our office to schedule a consultation or to learn more about how to get dentures in Virginia.

What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?

A soft denture reline utilizes a softer material instead of hard acrylic, which enables it to remain pliable for up to two years. A soft reline helps eliminate the discomfort associated with denture pain and sore spots.

All-on-Four Dentures

Permanently attached to four dental implants in the lower jaw, this full set of artificial teeth offers the convenience of a fixed appliance and more natural biting power.

Restore your smile with a set of comfortable, tailor-made dentures. Modern dental appliances fit better and are more natural looking than ever. If you need dentures in Virginia, we are ready to help. Contact our office to obtain additional information or schedule a consultation.
