There are two restorative dentistry options regarding dentures: partial or full dentures. Some patients confuse dental bridges with a partial denture, but they are not the same treatment. A dental bridge is a fixed device which uses teeth at either side of a gap to create a bridge for false teeth. Dentures are removable devices which replace some or all missing teeth. When all your teeth are missing, Midgette Dentistry will provide full dentures.
Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed. This type of denture is not placed for several months after the removal of teeth, allowing the gums to heal. An immediate denture is created before the removal of teeth, so once teeth are removed the denture is ready for placement.
In order to determine which option is right for you, our dentists will carry out an assessment of your needs. We aim to have your teeth restored in the quickest time possible, allowing you to get back to life as normal. With Dr. Midgette’s professionalism and expertise in the field of restorative dentistry, you are guaranteed a comfortably fitting denture that will help restore function to your mouth.
Partial Dentures Richmond, VA
Our dentists will not remove healthy teeth unless absolutely necessary. Therefore, a partial denture may be the appropriate option for you. A partial denture replaces a group of missing teeth, rather than an entire set. The partial denture is made to match any healthy teeth that are left in the mouth, ensuring uniformity in your smile.
We will provide you with all the information you need to look after your dentures. Before we provide you with dentures, you must first undergo an assessment with Dr. Midgette. Booking an assessment is only a phone call away, so contact Midgette Dentistry and we will book your appointment quickly and conveniently.
