At our Charlottesville office, Dr. Hal Lippard can replace missing teeth with dentures—both partials and full sets. Replacing your lost teeth is an important aspect of restoring your full oral health. Missing teeth cause a variety of dental problems:
Missing teeth can also impair your self-esteem and confidence. Research has shown that people with healthy, whole, beautiful smiles are thought to be more attractive and successful. If you think missing teeth is negatively impacting your professional opportunities and your social connections, dentures are affordable, natural-looking option for teeth replacements.
There are many reasons why patients experience tooth loss. Trauma due to an accident or fall can permanently knock out teeth. Extraction may be needed for severely decayed or infected teeth. Gum disease may cause loss of teeth, too. In fact, gum disease is the number one reason for tooth loss in American adults. Fortunately, our Charlottesville dentist can use his experience and skills to create dentures that replace several teeth or even all your teeth!
If you have one missing tooth, Dr. Lippard may recommend either a dental implant or a crown and bridge. These two options are terrific tooth replacements and may benefit you the most in restoring your smile and your dental health. However, if you have several teeth missing, in a row or in several places, then partial dentures may be the better solution.
At our Charlottesville dental practice, we can work with you to create removable partial dentures that fit well and look great. Partial dentures are budget-friendly options for giving you the functionality you need and the smile you deserve. Also, they can be removed so you can clean your mouth and your dental prostheses.
For patients who have complete tooth loss, our restorative dental professionals customize upper and lower dental arches to fit your mouth comfortably. Having a set of full dentures will give you back the ability to eat whatever you want, to speak without slurring, and to smile without embarrassment. Dr. Lippard and his team will work closely with you to create a natural-looking set of dentures that you can confidently wear—showing off that gorgeous grin!
