Removable Dental Prosthesis
Having teeth to properly chew and digest food is very important to your overall health condition. If you are missing teeth and would like to have a better quality of life when it comes to eating then ask us how we can give you what you want. Dr. Merai makes dentures and partial dentures so that they are virtually invisible.
If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth and live in Washington DC, Alexandria, Clinton, Maryland or another town near Oxon Hill, Maryland, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures from Comprehensive Dental Care in Oxon Hill, MD can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.
There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
Even if you wear full dentures and live in Washington DC, Alexandria VA, Clinton, Fort Washington, MD or another town near Oxon Hill, Maryland, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
