Dentures & Partials in Charlottesville, VA
As your trusted restorative dentist in Charlottesville, VA, Dr. Matthew Harrison is happy to provide you with custom-made dentures and partials. At Harrison Dental Associates, we understand the importance of restoring your smile and look forward to helping you regain functionality. Missing a full arch of teeth can have drastic effects on a person’s ability to chew and speak, and can have damaging effects on their self-confidence. Our compassionate team custom-makes your dentures and partials to ensure a snug and comfortable fit so that you can enjoy having a fully functional smile again. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions regarding dentures & partials:
How should I care for my dentures?
After you receive your dentures, Dr. Harrison will instruct you on how to properly care for them. You should avoid using traditional toothpaste on your dentures and instead use denture cleaner. Clean and rinse your dentures as often as you would brush your natural teeth. Keep your dentures in denture solutions while not in use to ensure they keep their shape.
How can I ensure my dentures won’t slip around while in use?
Our custom-made dentures and partials are designed specifically for you to prevent slippage as much as possible. However, we also offer implant-secured dentures, which utilize dental implants to anchor your dentures in place while in use. Patients enjoy implant-secured dentures because they don’t have to worry about their dentures moving around while chewing or speaking.
Should I wear my dentures at night?
We recommend taking your dentures out at night before you go to bed. This allows your soft tissues and jawbone to rest from the pressure that the dentures apply to them throughout the day,
