Dentures in Falls Church, VA

Who Needs Dentures?

If many or all of your teeth are missing, or if you only have one or a few missing, a denture may help solve your problem. Your teeth support your facial structure, they aid in mastication and speech, and different types of teeth perform different functions. Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth and can improve your self-confidence and your overall health. When they’re properly maintained, they can last for decades so dentures are a sound investment in your overall health.

What Denture Options Are Available?

Dentures are available to fit almost any need, whether it’s for a single-tooth denture or a complete denture. Your dentist will work with you to help you obtain affordable quality dentures that fit your needs and your lifestyle.

What Are Full Dentures?

Also called a complete denture, this appliance replaces all your natural teeth in the upper and/or the lower jaw. Your dentist will first take impressions and make measurements of your teeth and gums so that your new denture set will be an accurate replication of your original bite. Then, any remaining teeth will be removed, implants installed if applicable, and you’ll receive a temporary denture while you wait for your mouth to heal from the extractions. When your gums have healed, your permanent denture will be installed and fitted for comfort and function.

A removable full denture will be seated on your gums, a fixed full denture will be secured by implants. Just remember, a removable denture will need to be removed and cleaned daily.

Is a Partial Denture Better?

A partial denture is similar to a bridge, except a bridge is a permanent installation whereas a partial denture is removable and must be cleaned daily. A partial is attached to adjacent teeth by clasps.

What Should I Know About Flexible Partial Dentures?

Traditional partial dentures are constructed of a rigid acrylic material that may be uncomfortable for some individuals. A flexible partial and its clasps are constructed of a lightweight, pliable substance that moves with your mouth. Both the partial and the clasps are flesh colored so they blend in with your surrounding teeth and gums.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

An implant-supported denture is secured by implants and is typically installed only in the lower jaw. It needs to be removed and cleaned on a daily basis.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

This unique technique uses a complete set of artificial teeth to replace your natural teeth, and is affixed to dental implants, usually only in the lower jaw. This type of denture is very convenient and provides more biting power than traditional dentures.

How Do I Get Dentures?

Although the details vary by individual, there are several steps to getting new dentures in Falls Church. First, your dentist will thoroughly examine your oral health and make a recommendation on the best denture style for your needs and your lifestyle. Then, he or she will take measurements and make impressions of your teeth and gums so that your new teeth will match your natural teeth as closely as possible. Afterwards, teeth will be extracted and implants installed as necessary, and you’ll be provided with a temporary denture. When your gums have healed, your permanent denture will be installed and adjusted to ensure maximum comfort and efficiency.

How Much Will Dentures Cost Me?

The cost of a new denture will vary, depending on the condition of your oral health, the type of denture desired, and the materials required to make it. Your dentist will help you obtain the most affordable quality dentures that will meet your needs and preferences. If you’re ready to get new dentures in Falls Church, give us a call and we’ll schedule an appointment for you.

What Is A Soft Denture Reline and Is It Right for Me?

A traditional denture is lined with a hard acrylic material that can be uncomfortable for some denture wearers. A soft reline uses a pliable material to reline the denture, which can eliminate painful sore spots.
