Restore A Complete And Healthy Smile With Dentures
Dentures are more than just a dental appliance; they are a gateway to renewed confidence and improved quality of life for those who have lost some or all of their teeth. At Smiles in Springfield in Springfield, VA, we offer a variety of denture options to suit different needs and preferences.
Types of Dentures:
- Complete Dentures: These are ideal for individuals who have lost all their teeth in an arch. They rest on the gums and can be conventional (placed after the healing of gum tissue post teeth removal) or immediate (inserted immediately after teeth removal, requiring adjustments as the bone heals).
- Partial Dentures: For those with some natural teeth remaining, these dentures fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting. They are attached to a metal framework that connects to the remaining teeth.
- Implant-Supported Dentures: Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, and the dentures are mounted on these implants, providing greater stability than traditional dentures.
- Snap-In Dentures: These dentures are anchored by dental implants and are known for their stability. They are convenient as they can be easily removed for cleaning.
Placement and Benefits:
The process of getting dentures varies. For complete and partial dentures, impressions of your mouth are taken to create models. Implant-supported dentures involve more steps, including surgery for implants.
The benefits of dentures are manifold. They improve chewing ability and speech and bring back a full smile, significantly boosting self-esteem. They also support the facial structure, preventing the facial muscles from sagging.
While it takes time to adjust to dentures, with proper care and the right fit, they can significantly enhance the quality of life. Regular dental visits are crucial to ensure your dentures fit well and to address any discomfort.
Dentures are not just a remedy for tooth loss but a step towards a fuller, more confident life. Whether you opt for complete, partial, or implant-supported dentures, contact us today and let us help you smile, speak, and eat with confidence.
