In the Victorian era, wealthy couples often received a set of dentures as a wedding gift. If they were very lucky, they might receive two sets. These dentures were by no means customized, and in most cases, they were barely functional. Today, dentists repair smiles following advanced tooth loss a little differently. The technologies, materials, and placement methods continue to change each year, improving the results of denture restoration and recreating flawless smiles. Specifically, patients now have the option to anchor dentures to dental implants, creating significantly improved chewing function and a more natural appearance. However, not all patients have been able to receive implant supported dentures for a variety of reasons including gum tissue volume, jawbone density, and health concerns. That’s where the innovative Locator® implant overdenture can help.

Are you one of almost 30% of Americans who suffer from a shifted, crooked bite? Most dentists identify this bad bite as malocclusion. It can cause pain, visible wear on the teeth, or even tooth sensitivity. Even worse, malocclusion can lead to worse problems down the road if left untreated.
Your dentist is here to explain malocclusion to our patients and help you fix the issue as needed.

At Tysons Dental Esthetics, we offer comfortable dental crown placement. Using the highest quality procedures and effective local anesthetics, we are able to repair dental damage and restore patients’ smiles to full, flawless function. The dental crown process is completed over the course of two to three appointments in our office. It all starts with a consultation with one of our skilled dentists. We’ll walk you through all of your dental restoration options and help you choose the right treatment. Our caring team will make you feel right at home in our office and work hard to ensure your complete comfort throughout your time with us. In some cases, we may be able to begin your preparation process on the same day as your consultation. If we don’t have time on the same day, we’ll schedule a follow-up to begin your treatment.
The best type of dental crown is the one that’s flawlessly crafted to restore and protect a damaged tooth. At Tysons Dental Aesthetics, we offer quality dental crowns made from a variety of materials to meet any patient’s oral health care needs. We work with every patient to create personalized treatment plans to ensure the results we deliver are just what they’re looking for, and that includes the design and placement of dental restorations like crowns. Over the course of two to three office visits, we’ll provide a one-on-one consultation to help you select the best dental crown materials. Then, we’ll prepare the tooth and capture impressions that are used by the lab to create your crown. Following your preparation, we’ll place a temporary crown to protect the tooth. Once we receive the final restoration for our lab, you’ll return to exchange your temporary for a custom dental crown.

You are what you eat. No doubt you’ve heard the expression. And while the words are cliché, they are no less true. You can probably feel the difference after you’ve had a healthy meal vs. a meal of “empty” calories. But even before you take that first bite, the condition of your mouth can actually impact your overall health. There is something called the oral-systemic connection that substantiates the link between periodontal disease and the health of the rest of your body. One of the most notable connections is to diabetes. Read on to learn more about gum disease and diabetes from your dentist in Falls Church.
