Dr. Morabito Offers Restorative Dentures in Falls Church

Anyone can end up needing dentures. They are not just for senior citizens. Sports injuries, victims of automobile accidents, or people with genetic disorders may require some prosthetic assistance. If you have lost a few teeth or perhaps are facing the loss of all your teeth, the good news is there is help for you!

Denture Assessment and Customization

There are several different types of removable dentures. After the removal of all your teeth and the healing process of the tissues and gums are completed, a complete conventional denture is placed into your mouth. This can take several months.

Immediate Removable Dentures

An immediate removable denture is created for your individual needs and made in advance. Unlike conventional dentures, it is ready to be inserted as soon as your teeth are removed. While this offers the benefits of having immediate dentures, they will need to be realigned several months after being placed. The healing process continues after your teeth are removed, so the bone which supports your teeth reshapes and can cause your dentures to become loose.

Partial Removable Dentures

If you still have healthy teeth surrounding the missing teeth, a partial removable denture can be considered. The partial dentures are fitted to the part of the gum line that they will sit on and fasten to nearby natural teeth to keep from falling out of place. They are not permanently fastened and can be removed easily for cleaning and while sleeping.

Living With Dentures

New dentures can feel a bit odd or loose for several weeks until you get used to them while keeping them in place with your tongue and cheeks. It is not unusual to have minor irritation or soreness when you first begin to wear them, but these problems should disappear. There will be a period of adjustment for eating while you become familiar with wearing dentures. Speaking will also require practice but will become easier with repetition.

Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth, so there will not be much of a noticeable change in your appearance. If you already have missing teeth, dentures can enhance your smile and facial appearance.

Dentures are worn during the day and taken out at night to give your gums time to relax. When you are not wearing them, they should be handled with care and placed in a container of water or denture cleaner. Good oral hygiene for both your dentures and mouth will be important

Testimonials

Dr. Morabito and your wonderful staff - Thank you so much for your kind, welcoming, and kid-friendly attention you gave me and my sons when we came in for the Harrison's 1st dental checkup. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Harrisons

Dr. Morabito is an awesome dentist, a great personality with the hift of humor, he is personable, and amazingly manages to choose the very best people to work for him. They are all excellent and most of all - caring and genuine. And with my dental problems, believe me I have had my share of being treated like a "number." I recently flew back to Falls Church from Kansas City to have him do my implants, because I don't trust anyone else.
