Dentures, or ‘false teeth’, can be an effective short to medium term option to replace missing teeth. Dentures have certainly evolved over the centuries of its documented use, and for many patients, it is the only option they have known for missing teeth.
Depending on the position and number of missing teeth, dentures can be made for a comfortable fit that still allows normal chewing, speaking, and tasting of food.
Over time, the gums and underlying bone recede where teeth are missing. Dentures may not fit as well, and food and plaque bacteria can lead to gum infections or tooth decay. If no other tooth replacement option is possible, resurfacing of the denture is important to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Richmond Smiles Dental goes the extra mile to save your natural teeth, but on occasion oral health problems and/or injuries get in the way.
When you lose a tooth, a long list of problems can occur, like difficulty chewing, talking, and even smiling. With dentures or partials, Richmond Smiles Dental can improve the health of your mouth and your appearance. We proudly offer custom-made affordable dentures in Richmond to help our patients replace their missing teeth and renew their confidence.
