full denturesEach set of dentures in Herndon, Virginia, is made individually and customized to fit the smile of a patient. When beginning the process for dentures, our team will take an impression of your teeth. This impression is used to create a mold of your mouth that we utilize when creating your dentures. We also take exact measurements of your oral structures and discuss with you the color of your dentures so that they look exactly as you want.

Types of Dentures

• Full Dentures: Full dentures replace all the teeth on the top or bottom arch, but they can also be used to replace both. Full dentures look natural and can also be removed easily so that you can care for and maintain your gum health.
• Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are built to fill in the gaps made by missing teeth. They snap into place around your natural teeth and allow you to keep all your healthy and strong dentition.
• Implant-Supported Dentures: We can also use dentures to complete an All-on-4® dental implant procedure. With this kind of treatment, your dentures are kept securely in place with a series of dental implants.

Caring for Dentures

Although dentures don’t decay, they are still prone to damage. Dentures are breakable and easily stained. Be sure to carefully clean your dentures when you remove them. The dentures can slip out of your hands and will easily break if they fall on a hard surface.

When cleaning your dentures, use a soft denture brush to avoid discoloring, staining or scratching the teeth. Soak your dentures in a denture cleaner overnight. Avoid cleaning them with toothpaste or other chemicals.

Adjusting Dentures

Denture adjustments are normal because gum tissue and bone density change over time.
