Partial Dentures in Fredericksburg, VA
Are you struggling with tooth loss, but worried about the prospect of replacing those teeth with dentures? At D & D Family Dentistry, we specialize in placing partial dentures that look and feel like your natural teeth. A partial is a removable appliance that can replace one or several missing teeth. Partial dentures are made of acrylic or a combination of metal and acrylic.
Modern materials and innovative technology have improved the look and feel of dentures. They are easy to care for, comfortable, and sturdy. These modern appliances allow you to smile with confidence, eat, and speak normally, while effectively stopping the rest of your teeth from shifting out of place.
Why Choose Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are an ideal choice for people who are missing some, but not all of their natural teeth. The base is attached to your teeth with a removable clasp, so you can take out your dentures for easy cleaning.
Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to support the prosthetic, creating a sturdy framework to support your new artificial teeth when chewing and talking. The implant posts help minimize deterioration of the jawbone, and last much longer than traditional dentures. Implant-supported dentures are a great solution for patients who are missing many of their teeth as they maintain healthy supporting structures.
The Partial-Denture Procedure
After an initial examination and discussion, our Fredericksburg dentist takes impressions of your dental anatomy and develop a personalized treatment plan. This information is then sent to a trusted dental lab so your partial dentures can be fabricated. You may be asked to try on a wax replica before the final product is created.
After a few weeks, your partial dentures will be ready to go. Your dentist will ensure that the appliance fits properly and is comfortable within your smile. Periodically, minor adjustments must be made to the prosthetic to ensure the appliances is continuously secure and remains a good fit.
