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.

If you have even one missing tooth, then replacement is essential for the sake of your smile, your oral health and your well being. Dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement. A small post of titanium metal does a really big job of completing your smile. It is critical, however, to make sure that the implant dentist you choose is properly educated and experienced in placing dental implants. For dental implants, Falls Church residents have learned to trust Dr. Berrada, the implant dentist at Tysons Dental Esthetics.
