CREATING BEAUTIFUL SMILES WITH
Full and Partial Denture Services
Dentures are not just for aesthetic purposes. Having missing teeth can cause many issues and this is even truer when you have multiple missing teeth. Thankfully, there are quite a few solutions for you to consider. When you come into Capitol Hill Seattle Dentist, you will be able to sit down with a skilled cosmetic dentist that can go over each and every option available to you in great detail.
Let's look at some of the ways that dentures can improve your dental wellness and compare which ones may be best for you.
If you're missing more than just one or two teeth the skin around your mouth and teeth may look sunken in due to the fact that there are no teeth to give the area structure. When trying to eat certain foods you may find the task difficult and you may have even had to change your diet in many ways. You may have even noticed that there have been changes to your speech. If you're missing many teeth side by side; this is also an, even more, compelling reason to have dentures made.
Are You A Good Candidate?
If you're missing many teeth in a row, especially along your dental arch, then you're a good candidate.
A partial is created to replace a few missing teeth that may be missing in a single row. The partial will attach to the remaining gumline to stay in place.
Full dentures are the replacement of all teeth across a dental arch. This is a replacement that a person receives when they experience major tooth loss. Just like partial dentures, full dentures will attach to the gumline so that they will stay in place.
When you're looking into which option is the best one for you, you should contact our dental clinic and make an appointment to be seen. Once you're able to sit down and talk with one of our experienced dentists here at Capitol Hill Seattle Dentist, we can give you more complete and comprehensive answers as well as set up the perfect plan for you.
The Perfect Plan For You
You may find that in your specific case, a dental bridge may be a better option for you. This may be the case if you have enough tooth structure remaining. A bridge is similar to partial dentures and differs only in that they will attach to the teeth that are remaining on each side of the gap as opposed to latching to the gumline to stay in place.
Additionally, you may be able to get dentures that are dental implants. An implant is where an artificial tooth is placed into the jawbone to become a permanent tooth. This ensures the optimal hold. At Seneca Dental in Seattle, we will go over every single option available to you so that you will have the best possible plan for your dental needs.
