Full and Partial Dentures in Danville, VA
As we age, losing teeth is one of the most common issues we face. But that shouldn’t stop you from living your life the way you want. You don’t have to stop eating your favorite foods or be self-conscious about your smile. Dentures are here to help ensure this happens. If you’re someone who has a few or all your teeth missing, dentures are the perfect solution for you.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are custom-made, prosthetic devices to replace missing teeth and are supported by the tissues of the oral cavity. They help perform oral functions such as chewing and also provide esthetics by replacing the missing teeth.
What are the Different Types of Dentures?
Complete Dentures –
Complete dentures are ideal for people who have lost all their teeth. They are removable and are made of acrylic and are custom made to fit your mouth. They can be used in conjunction with Implants to help enhance their retention.

Process of getting dentures
Getting your permanent denture requires a few visits! This is what you can expect when you visit us for your denture appointments.
In the first step, we will examine your teeth and gums. This will help us to determine whether or not you’re ready for dentures and identify if there are any underlying issues that need to be treated first.
Moving ahead, we will check the alignment of your upper and lower jaw. It is crucial that there is a correct alignment between your upper and lower teeth so that the dentures can fit comfortably and function properly.
We will also discuss the size, shape, and shade that you want for your denture. Impressions will be done to make custom fit trays to capture the correct jaw structures and/or teeth.
After we have your exact measurements, we will proceed to make customized dentures for you. After this, you are ready to go home with your new dentures that look, feel and function similar to your natural teeth!
