For patients that have lost several, or all of their teeth, full or partial dentures can restore your smile and replace your missing teeth. Whether you have lost your teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or an injury, dentures may be an option for you! Replacing missing teeth helps improve your appearance and also your overall oral hygiene. Dr. Kishore provides dentures for patients in Winchester, Virginia and surrounding areas.
Dentures are very important because without the added support in the areas of your missing teeth, your facial muscles may begin to sag and you’ll lose structure in your face, giving you an aged appearance.
Full dentures are used when all of your teeth are missing. We place a flesh-colored base over your gums. The base of the top denture will be placed over your palate, and the bottom one is shaped like a horseshoe in order for your tongue to fit comfortably.
Partial dentures function similarly to fixed dental bridges. However, the main difference is that partial dentures can be removed. Partial dentures fit over a metal frame that’s attached to your natural teeth. In some cases, dental crowns can be placed on your natural teeth to function as anchors for your partial dentures.
If you have severe tooth decay or are missing several teeth, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Kishore for dentures in Winchester, Virginia. Call our office at 590-773-3282 to schedule an appointment
