Don’t Wait to Fix Your Teeth

WASHINGTON, DC, October 10, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Many of our patients see us each year complaining that their implant prosthesis is so damaged that they feel uncomfortable smiling in public. Because of the substantial wear on their appliance(s), they look and feel considerably older than their actual age.

Ms. MC has a beautiful, genuine grin, but she has been hiding it lately since she is so nervous about her presentation, especially during her Zoom sessions. The cracking of her top and lower overdenture appliances, which rested on bars over her implants, made her feel even more self-conscious.

We discussed the situation at length and came to the conclusion that she should have new appliances made to fit over her implant bars, and that her old appliances should be modified to function as backup devices.

It’s more challenging than making the devices themselves to design overdenture appliances that will fit over overdenture bars already seated on implants. In order to give her a younger appearance, it is necessary to take highly precise impressions and bite registrations. Prosthodontists and their highly skilled dental technicians need to work closely together on this.

With her newfound confidence and bright smile, Maria is overjoyed.

At Elite Prosthetic Dentistry, our Washington D.C. dental specialists and team take great pride in working closely with our patients to find ideal solutions for optimal oral health and world-class smiles. Our results speak for themselves, with dental crowns that last over 35 years, and dental implant restorations with a 97% success rate after 20 years.
