Digital Dentures are the latest advancement in dentistry. Dr. Obeid is recognized nationwide for pioneering the use of this technology. Obeid Dental was featured on CNN to discuss the procedures of fabricating a digital denture. Obeid Dental is one of the most experienced providers to offer this treatment in the DC Metro Area and nationwide. Digital Denture fabrication requires fewer visits than conventional dentures. The design and fabrication are made using a direct relationship with leading manufacturers, and the results are excellent.
Some of the advantages of digital dentures include A vastly more comfortable fit. The material has also dramatically reduced bacterial adherence, eliminating a lousy denture odor. It is much stronger than a conventional denture and uses less material, giving it a thinner appearance and feels.
Your unique denture specifications are stored on a digital file. If your denture is ever lost, a new denture can be fabricated without needing a clinical procedure. Our office will use the existing digital file, and your denture will be milled as an exact copy. Computer-Aided Design (CAD) allows freedom of design. Patients can see a realistic view of the finished product before milling, and we can make adjustments to the shape and will set it up before delivery. The software utilizes digital imaging to create an accurate fit.
For a denture to succeed, three items must be present:
When you lose your teeth and you wear a removable denture, the remaining bone will start to deteriorate, thus reducing the amount of stability, support and retention for the denture.
At Obeid Dental we recommend placing a few implants to help restore the loss of function. Adding dental implants will help in preserving the bone height. Dental implants will also improve your diet, by having a stable denture, your ability to chew will open your world to foods you would otherwise be avoiding.
The more implants that you receive , the more retention and stability will be provided to your denture. Dr. Obeid will discuss all of your options and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option. We are very sensitive to your financial needs as most of this work will be an out of pocket expense.
