Dentures Fredericksburg Virginia

Dentures and partial dentures are a replacement for missing teeth, and are typically removable. Depending on each individual case, they may need full or partial dentures. Full dentures are needed if all natural teeth have been removed.

Your dentures may take some time to get used to. The flesh colored base of the dentures is placed over your gums. Some people say that it feels bulky or that they don’t have enough room for their tongue. Other times the dentures might feel loose. These feelings will affect the way you eat and talk for a little while. Over time, your mouth becomes trained to eat and speak with your dentures and they begin to feel increasingly like your natural teeth. They may never feel perfectly comfortable, but it is much better than the alternative of not having teeth.

Types of Dentures We Offer:

Conventional Full Dentures

This is when all the teeth are removed, and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.

Immediate Full Dentures

Prior to having your teeth removed, the dentist takes measurements and has dentures fitted for your mouth. After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, as healing takes place, need to have a follow up visits to refit your dentures; this is normal and expected.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.

Ongoing Care Following Treatment

Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them as if they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles. After they have been removed, you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate; so make sure you are careful when handling them so you do not drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself; you should always seek assistance from our dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose.
