Loss of teeth happens for several reasons, such as dental injuries, periodontitis, severe tooth decay, or teeth extractions. No matter why you have missing teeth, we can replace your missing teeth with either a partial or full set of dentures. At our Virginia Beach, VA restorative dental office, we use advanced techniques, excellent biocompatible materials, and years of restorative dentistry to create your new smile.
Missing teeth not only cause embarrassment, but they can also destroy your oral health. Your bite may shift and affect how you chew and how you speak. Patients who have missing teeth have higher risks of getting gum disease, losing more teeth, and experiencing jaw joint problems.
Depending on your tooth replacement needs, Smile by Design can customize full dentures for your upper and lower arches, or we can create partial dentures to fill in large gaps around your natural teeth. Our Virginia Beach dentists take utmost care to create comfortable and natural-looking dentures and partials. Partials may be attached with metal clasps, or they can snap onto dental implants.
If you need a full set of dentures, Dr. Santos and Dr. Folck can take care of you at our Virginia Beach dental practice. With patients who have total tooth loss, our experienced dentists fit you for a full set of dentures that can change your whole life. Full dentures allow you to speak clearly, eat well, and smile often. Imagine being able to show off a full set of gleaming and natural-looking pearly whites! Like partial dentures or fixed bridges, your full set of dentures can be attached to well-placed dental implants. You may also opt for the more traditional method of using adhesive. We can also provide Turbyfill dentures, which are specially created to balance a patient's bite and aesthetics, as well as accommodate the loss of bone and gum tissue that comes with losing your natural teeth. We can discuss your individual needs and concerns with you in detail before making a decision as to which of these methods is right for you.
Dentures and partials improve speaking and chewing abilities and prevent sagging lips and cheeks. At Smile by Design, Dr. Santos and Dr. Folck serve the restorative dentistry needs of Virginia Beach and all surrounding communities. Please make your appointment today!
