What would it be like to be able to chew and enjoy food again? How would it feel to smile proudly in the next family photo? When you’re missing multiple teeth, life can be challenging, and sometimes your situation can feel hopeless. The good news is that there are options within reach and dentures in Manassas can be an economical choice for patients.
What is a Denture?
For patients who are missing multiple teeth, or have numerous teeth failing, it may be time to consider a full denture. This removable appliance is custom designed to replace an entire arch of teeth, with natural looking prosthetic teeth. Dentures rely on a snug fit and suction to keep them in place, so it’s important to work with dentists like Dr. Tamer Wahab and Dr. Patricia Solarte who combine both skill and artistry to design excellent fitting dentures that are unique to each patients’ appearance.
At Galleria Dental Arts, we’ll take the time to ensure that your denture provides a comfortable, yet secure fit. Dentures do have a learning curve as you first start eating and talking with them, and we may need to reline your denture for a better fit. Most patients appreciate however, how a denture immediately restores form and function to their smile.
What is a Partial Denture?
For patients who still retain a good number of healthy teeth, a partial denture may be a good option. A partial fits much like a retainer and uses metal clasps to anchor to your healthy teeth. Prosthetic teeth attached to the partial fill in the open spaces like a puzzle piece. A partial is also customized to match your existing teeth and naturally complete your smile.
An Affordable Option
When they’re missing multiple teeth, many patients feel that restoring their smiles will be too expensive, and sadly this keeps them from getting the treatment they need and deserve. Dentures and partials are sometimes covered by dental insurance, however at Galleria Dental Arts we also offer options for affordable monthly payments.
We partner with a company called Care Credit that even offers interest free options, so if you’ve considered restoring your smile but cost holds you back, we encourage you to call us and talk with one of our friendly staff members to learn more about your options.
