Manassas Smiles offers treatment options for the replacement of a full set of missing teeth, including full dentures, partial dentures and denture implants. Dentures provide an effective solution for missing teeth to restore beauty and function to the smile. They are made from high-quality state of the art dental materials that look and function like natural teeth. Centreville, VA area dentist, Dr. Nadder Hassan custom designs dentures to fit comfortably and look natural, allowing you to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are custom made artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth and some of the gum tissue. They are made in a dental lab with impressions of your mouth for a custom fit. There are complete dentures for when all your teeth are missing and partial dentures when you have a few of your natural teeth left.
Types of Dentures
Modern dentures are more natural looking and comfortable thanks to advancements in the quality of dental materials and technology. Until recently, removable dentures have been the only option to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Dr. Hassan offers the following types of dentures at his Centreville, VA dentist office:
Partial Denture – Partial dentures are similar to a dental bridge because they replace several missing teeth. They are made to fill gaps in your smile.
Full Dentures – Full Dentures are used to replace the entire upper or lower arch of teeth.
Denture Implants – Dentures secured by dental implants permanently attach dentures to the jaw using strategically placed dental implants. Denture implants provide a higher rate of patient satisfaction.
Benefits of Dental Implant Secured Dentures
Dr. Hassan can use dental implants to permanently secure a denture or partial denture for permanent and stable results. Denture implants are permanently attached to the jaw using as few as four dental implants. The denture will be secured to the dental implants once the dental implants are fully healed. Patients may be fitted with a temporary denture while the implants heal. This procedure provides several key benefits for both overall health and lifestyle including:
- Reduce bone loss and shrinkage in the jaw
- No slipping or fear of teeth falling out
- Enables a healthy, varied diet
- Normal speech for confidence in social settings
- No need for the use of daily adhesives
