Modern Denture Technology Has Made Huge Strides

Tooth loss can cause many troubling functional issues, from not being able to eat all the foods you love to shifting of adjacent teeth and an increased risk of decay and gum disease. If you have missing teeth, you may also be too embarrassed to smile and this can cause a hit to your self-confidence. Too many people won’t even consider dentures because they have preconceived ideas that they’re only for older adults. But tooth loss doesn’t only impact older adults and anyone with missing teeth can get dentures. In fact, recent data from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research indicate people ages 20 to 34 have an average of 5.1 missing teeth! Although huge strides have been made in denture technology in the last few decades, like any restorative treatment, all dentures aren’t created equal. If you’re looking for an affordable denture near you in Richmond, VA, our prosthodontists offer a full line of high-quality complete and partial dentures and partner with third-party financing companies to make this cost-effective tooth replacement solution even more affordable. No matter how many teeth you’ve lost, our prosthodontists can help improve your smile function and confidence with modern dentures in Richmond, VA!

Today’s Dentures Provide Better Functionality and Aesthetics

Options today include traditional partial and complete removable dentures and implant supported versions that are either removable or fixed. Partial dentures are an ideal option for patients with just a few missing teeth, while complete dentures are a full mouth solution for patients who are completely edentulous (toothless). Both partials and complete dentures are typically made of a metal framework with pink plastic that replicates gum tissue and natural-looking resin replacement teeth. The base of the upper denture covers the roof of your mouth, while the base of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. At Commonwealth Prosthodontics, the word one-size-fits-all isn’t in our vocabulary. Whether you choose conventional dentures or implant supported dentures in Richmond, VA, we carefully fabricate false teeth at our state-of-the-art dental lab.

3 Reasons Personalized Dentistry Matters | Don't Be Just Another Number

A Smile Customized to You

The prosthodontists at Commonwealth Prosthodontics have vast experience customizing complete and partial dentures personalized to each patient’s oral health needs and smile goals. Patient choice is a huge priority for us, so our prosthodontists will discuss a multitude of options and explain the pros and cons of each. We want you to make an informed decision and choose the best solution to fit your unique smile needs and budget. We’ll never hard sell you on more costly treatments like high-volume corporate implant centers.

Once you make a decision, the next step is taking a series of digital impressions of your jaw ridge and oral tissues. Our highly skilled on-site dental lab technician uses the impressions to carefully handcraft new dentures in Richmond, VA that look and feel natural. During this process, you may need to schedule a short appointment for a wax try-in to verify proper fit. Once this highly customized process is complete, you’ll return for a final fitting and walk out with a rejuvenated smile that provides good oral function and natural-looking aesthetics! We also have the ability to repair broken dentures and reline them to ensure they fit properly and comfortably without slipping. The fit of dentures changes over time as your jawbone shrinks. Due to these normal changes and wear and tear, we advise scheduling a yearly visit to get your dentures checked. Traditional dentures typically need to be relined or replaced every five to 10 years.

The Benefits of Traditional Dentures

While it may take a few weeks to adjust to wearing your new dentures, you’ll experience many benefits once you get accustomed to them, including:
