Dr. Olivia Hart believes in providing her patients with beautiful and comfortable methods to repair smiles after tooth loss. When natural teeth are extracted or fall out, they must be restored to maintain function and aesthetics. Quick action keeps existing teeth from shifting out of place, causing misalignment and gaps that may require orthodontic treatment.
At Virginia Biological Dentistry in the Fredericksburg area, we offer our patients myriad ways to restore smiles after tooth loss. If budget is a big concern, consider dentures in the capable and skilled hands of Dr. Hart and her team.
Partial and full dentures both play an important role in restoring the function and appearance of the smile while maintaining dental health. Partial dentures are made of a metal and plastic framework, which snaps into place and uses a false tooth or pontic to replace the missing tooth. Partials fit snugly into the dental arch and are easily removed for cleaning and care. Full dentures are made of acrylic and include an entire dental arch of false teeth and gum tissue. They are held in place with natural suction, dental adhesives, or dental implants, depending on the patient’s needs and preferences.
Dentures have many advantages over other solutions. They are removable, making them easier to clean and ensuring optimal oral health over time. They keep existing teeth from shifting out of place, which maintains the alignment of the rest of remaining teeth. They are economical and offer an affordable solution for many individuals. Additionally, patients with dental insurance may enjoy partial or full coverage of dentures.
