If some or all of a person’s teeth have been lost and all extraction sites have healed (8 weeks or longer), then partial and full dentures are the solution. CDA Virginia offers dentures in Annandale VA. The process for partial or full dentures takes about 2 to 4 months and 6 appointments.
The first step is to determine a proper jaw position by getting an impression and wax bite. Next a “try-in” is used to determine the correct fit and color. Then a final denture is placed and minor adjustments can be made.
If it is your first time wearing dentures then you will need to get used to your new “teeth”. In order to get accustomed to your dentures we recommend you start with soft, easy-to-chew foods. Also note that denture wearers sometimes notice a slight change in facial appearance, increased saliva, or minor speech difficulty.
