Orofacial pain is a phrase used to describe any discomfort in the face, mouth, head, or neck. Dentists and medical professionals offer numerous treatments for chronic orofacial pain, but much of this treatment is not necessarily an effective cure. Instead, most of the treatments currently available focus on relieving the symptoms through regular preventive dental treatments that don’t necessarily fix the underlying causes of the orofacial pain and discomfort. Lucky for patients who suffer from orofacial pain, there are many new methods for treating these conditions, and there may be an innovative new treatment method on the horizon.

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.

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.

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.
