Get your smile back with a reconstructive plan
If your teeth are damaged from an accident, age or decay, Tidewater Dental Group offers a variety of procedures to make your teeth look and function beautifully again. Reconstructive dentistry may involve the construction of new teeth with a composite material, repairing or rebuilding bridges, or creating implants where teeth are missing. We also make dentures and partials for patients of any age who have lost some or all of their teeth. Your teeth are a permanent part of your body and tooth loss can be very emotional. You can talk to us about any fears, anxiety, and sadness you are feeling as a result of tooth loss.
We skillfully provide procedures including:
Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Dental implants provide a natural-looking, permanent replacement for missing teeth. If you have lost one or more teeth or are dissatisfied with dentures or bridges, dental implants might be right for you. In fact, the development of implant technology is one of the biggest dentistry advances in the past 40 years. This high-tech way of replacing lost teeth is much more effective than traditional bridgework. Dental implants are posts, usually titanium and other materials that are surgically placed in your jaw, to serve as a stable anchor for your replacement teeth.
After the implant is placed in the jawbone, the bone heals and grows around the implant. We then create a new artificial tooth – a dental crown — or a bridge of several teeth that blends in perfectly with your other teeth.
Dental implants provide:
- Improved biting pressure
- Comfort and protection to adjacent teeth
- Longevity and reliability
- Increased self-confidence
We are pleased to offer this advanced dental technique. Talk to our dentist to make sure you are a good candidate and to schedule treatment.
Quality, Affordable Dentures in Virginia Beach
If you’ve had any estimates up to now to restore your smile by means of dental implants in Virginia Beach, you probably noticed that even with good insurance, the price and chair time are prohibitive. At Tidewater Dental Group, we offer attractive and affordable dentures to meet your needs.
We conveniently make our dentures in-house which saves our patients money. Dentures are a solution for missing teeth and provide amazing results such as:
- Can help you speak more clearly
- Improves confidence in your smile and eating again
- Restores a youthful appearance overall
- Can help you eat the foods you love again
- Could improve digestion with better chewing
You should always get a full consultation from our dentist to see which solution makes sense for your situation so that you make the right choice for your oral health and best results. Dentures are a great choice if you wish to opt out of implants due to the costs, but understanding the adjustments and care it takes over time for dentures is important in making your decision too.
We’ll do our part to ensure your set of replacement teeth fit and function well, giving you the most natural feel as is possible. In some cases, additional dental work is required to prepare your mouth for artificial teeth. For best results, you’ll need to take care of your dentures as if they were your original teeth. Every three to five years, relines are required to adjust for a more natural fit. These refits also help to mitigate bone loss that naturally occurs in your jaw area.
Partial Replacements for a Gorgeous Smile
Some patients are good candidates for removable partial dentures. These artificial teeth are typically attached by means of a metal clasp and can be pulled out at any time for convenient cleaning. In most cases, the gum part is made of acrylic while the upper part has the option of being made with porcelain. Just as with full mouth solutions, partial replacements require a full dental examination to determine if additional work is necessary to prepare your jaw and gums for artificial teeth.
Always Welcoming New Patients
Our patients have experienced major confidence boosts thanks to affordable dentures. Whether you’re looking for a permanent solution or a relatively simple repair, we’re here to help. Patients come to our Virginia Beach office from the Norfolk, Chesapeake and surrounding areas. One of our additional specialties is periodontics.
We look forward to giving you the best dental experience you’ve ever had. If you have any questions or are ready to schedule an appointment, please give us a call at 757-424-1976.
