Dentures are the most commonly used option in replacing teeth. Complete dentures are supported by the gums and fit over the palate in the mouth – adhesive helps seal the dentures to the gums and keep them in place. Modern dentures are more comfortable, functional and natural-appearing than older models, providing a better experience for our patients. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer complete, partial and implant supported dentures at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.
We design dentures that are customized to fit comfortably and function beautifully. For many people, complete dentures can restore their smile and improve their quality of life. Once all teeth are lost or removed, an impression of the gums is taken to design the lower and upper dentures. It can require a few weeks of adjustment for patients to become accustomed to their new teeth. After the adjustment period, most patients love their new smile and the benefits that come with a complete set of teeth.
When you have lost several teeth, it can impact the appearance and function of your smile. Partial dentures replace your missing teeth and attach to your existing teeth to hold the prosthetic device in place. Partial dentures are an affordable option for those who are not good candidates for dental implants or bridges.
One of the best combinations of restorative dentistry options are implant supported overdentures. Patients can enjoy the beauty of a full set of dentures with the security of dental implants. Overdentures can be attached to dental implants to provide a secure, stable set of teeth. There are no adhesives needed, and implant overdentures will never slip out of place when chewing, talking or laughing. Implant supported dentures can also reduce bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth. It is a cost-effective solution compared to a full mouth reconstruction with dental implants.
