Your Healthcare Provider for Dentures in Reston, VA
Aging or injury can create the need for dentures to replace natural teeth. These dental appliances not only allow the wearer to chew normally but also provide support for the cheeks and lips. Most often, after the teeth have been removed, the gums must heal before the dentures can be worn. However, there are some instances where an immediate denture can be fabricated and worn right away, allowing the tissues to heal under the denture. At Dental One Reston, we can prepare patients and fit dentures at our Reston, VA practice. If you have any questions about this process or would like to schedule a consultation, please call our office to make an appointment.
Full and Partial Dentures
At Dental One Reston, we offer both full and partial dentures depending on each patient’s needs. Full dentures will replace all missing teeth, both top and bottom. The upper denture will cover the entire roof of the mouth, while the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for your tongue. We’re also able to fit patients with partial dentures at our Reston, VA dental office. A partial denture is used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, when the rest of your teeth are still healthy enough for normal daily activities. This allows you to keep your healthy natural teeth and still replace those that are missing.
Denture Relines and Replacements
Over time, it’s normal for dentures to wear from daily use. For this reason, it’s important that you continue to visit your dentist for all scheduled appointments. The alignment of the dentures will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink after the tooth removal. We will be able to reline the dentures or provide a replacement when necessary in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. During these checkup appointments, we’ll also examine all oral tissues for any changes or signs of disease. Call Dental One Reston today to set up your first appointment.
