Do you need to replace missing teeth or those that are about to be extracted? There are many causes of tooth loss and decay; in fact, it's a normal part of the aging process. Peery Family Dentistry regularly sees patients who are searching for a reliable way to replenish their smile. We can fit you for full dentures or a partial at our Lynchburg, Virginia practice. Please call our office today if you would like to undergo an examination to receive a denture or partial.
Some of our visitors express concern that a denture or partial won't provide the security they're searching for. Dr. James M. Peery, Jr. and Dr. James M. Peery III would like to tell you that today's dental technology can enable the creation of well-fitting dentures or partials. We take careful measurements and note anything particular that we need to know during a patient's denture or partial evaluation. We hope to revitalize the form and function of your bite with a denture or partial. Our care is comprehensive and thorough for your every need.
We'll suggest a partial if you're interested in a substitute for one to three absent teeth. A partial is removable and will attach to other teeth along the gum line in order to maintain its spot in your mouth. A denture is also removable and will replace each tooth along an upper gum, lower gum, or even both. Dentures stay in place with the help of natural suction and optional dental adhesive cream. At the end of each day, you'll be able to remove your denture or partial, cleanse it gently with a toothbrush, and place it overnight in a glass of water. If desired, you can also add a denture-cleaning tablet to the cup.
If you'd like to increase you denture's stability, implant-retained dentures provide a stable way to anchor your prosthetic. To qualify for an implant procedure, you'll need to have a strong jaw bone. If we think you might make a good candidate for an implant-retained denture, we'll proceed with the implant process. Once you are fully recovered from your implantation, you can snap your implant-retained denture right into place! These dentures are still removable; they just provide an added level of security and stability to your bite.
