Partial dentures are an option when teeth are missing or there is too much decay to save two or more teeth. This dental solution is a removable dental device that fits snugly in the jaw and replaces missing teeth. Unlike implants or some other dental services, dentures aren’t permanently anchored in the mouth and are designed to be taken out and cleaned.
The dentistry involved with modeling dentures, preparing the mouth and fitting the dentures takes a little longer than some other restorative dental procedures. The dentist will make impressions, create a wax mold to make sure that the denture will fit properly, make any necessary adjustments, have the denture created at a dental lab and finally fit the device.
We have been closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation in regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19). In accordance with recent recommendations from the CDC and the American Dental Association (ADA), van Greuningen Dentistry has decided to suspend elective and non-emergent services at this time.
We hope to return to normal operation on April 6, but we are keenly aware this might need to change depending on the situation at that time. If you have an appointment during this time, we will be in touch to reschedule as soon as we are able.
We will, however, be available for emergency needs during this time. Please call 404-262-1456 for any dental emergency. We will be available during limited hours to handle administrative or other issues. We will check messages frequently during business hours. If you reach us during non-business hours, please follow the directions in the message.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Victor van Greuningen, DMD and Team.
