High-Quality, Low-Cost Dentures
If periodontal disease, decay, or injuries cause teeth to fall out, replacing the missing teeth is necessary to maintain health and appearance. With dentures, there are various types of prosthetics to choose from. Your dentist in Seattle is more than happy to discuss all the options with you.
We Offer Partial and Complete Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are customized, removable false teeth supported by the surrounding hard and soft tissues of the mouth. There are two main traditional denture technologies; the mandibular arch dentures and the maxillary arch dentures. The mandible is the bone that supports the teeth on the bottom of your mouth. The maxilla is the bone that holds the teeth at the top of your mouth. Together these bones create the largest and most powerful structure of your face.
When a dentist or prosthodontist create your dentures, he and his lab design them to fit the bone they will be placed on. This creates optimum function within the soft and hard tissues of the mandible and maxilla.
Implant Supported or Overdentures
Many people who wear dentures are transitioning to implant supported dentures because of their superior function.
Dental implants and implant supported dentures provide most patients with superior chewing function and are more attractive in appearance. Overdentures snap onto two or more implant fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. This minimizes slippage of dentures and allows for greater strength and function.
Implant supported dentures are reputed for supporting bone structure and maintaining strength. With implant supported dentures, most patients experience little or no long term discomfort.
