Many people suffer from missing teeth and an incomplete smile. When teeth are lost or removed, they can cause the cheeks to sink in and affect your appearance. With extensive tooth loss, it can also become difficult to eat and have a negative effect on your diet. If you suffer from tooth loss, you may want to consider a dental restoration. Denture appliances can help patients who have lost multiple teeth in a row or who are missing an entire dental arch. This appliance can help improve both the function and appearance of your smile. Plan a consultation at Chevy Chase Dental Center for dentures in Washington, DC. Make a call to our office at 202-362-3353 and visit with our dentists, Dr. Akram Sannaa . During your appointment, you can find out more about your options for restoration, including options for partial and complete dentures.
We recommend partial dentures for patients who have a few missing teeth that are all next to one another. The appliance fits over the gum tissue and any of the remaining teeth. Any remaining natural teeth, even a single tooth, help anchor and stabilize the partial denture.
Complete dentures are recommended when there are no teeth left in the dental arch. Depending on your preferences and needs, our dentists may recommend traditional dentures that fit over the gums or an implant-supported denture that is anchored in place. While implant dentures involve dental surgery, they are the strongest and longest-lasting solution.
