Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
Partial dentures usually have replacement teeth attached to gum-colored plastic bases that are connected by metal framework. These can be taken out of the mouth for cleaning and at night while sleeping. In our office we offer cosmetic clasps on partials so nobody will recognize you have false teeth.
At Beautiful Smiles, we have an in-house lab to repair and reline dentures or partials within the same hour. From broken, cracked or chipped dentures to tooth replacement, relining and single replacement of a tooth on a partial or denture, we offer a complete range of denture repair services.
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported denture can replace the missing teeth along with some of the tooth roots. Because the dental implants integrate with the jawbone, an implant-supported denture tends to be comfortable and stable, allowing you to bite and chew naturally.
Dentures are an important solution to permanent tooth loss, and offer a lot of benefits. For starters, excellent dentures would enable you to get the more out of life; you would be able to enjoy food more and you would no longer have to worry about how you look whenever you smile. You can uninhibitedly flash those beautiful smiles. However, dentures are also subject to normal wear and tear over time so they would have to be relined, rebased or even remade. Such are also needed when there are changes in the structure of the face, jaw bones and gums which may cause the dentures to become loose. Professional denture care is therefore important in maintaining not just the condition of your dentures, but also in maintaining oral health.
The Need To Get Help From Bothell Denture Care Professionals
Bothell, just like nearby places in the Seattle Metropolitan area, hosts major music, and art and craft festivals; and you get to enjoy all that the city has to offer if you are healthy in all the senses of the word. Modern dentures are more comfortable and durable, and do a great job in restoring confidence which you or a loved one may have lost due to teeth loss, but without proper denture care, they are bound to cause problems. The lack of denture care may lead to gum and mouth irritation, discomfort and anxiety brought by dentures that are not secured and move around in the mouth, problems with speech and eating, and even mouth infections. Visiting a Bothell Denture Care Center would prevent those kinds of problems. Your dentist would advise you how often you would need to visit so that the mouth can be examined; the teeth would be thoroughly cleaned, the denture fit would be assessed and the dental care specialist would look for signs of potential problems (i.e. oral diseases).
What Bothell Denture Care Specialists Can Do For You
Typically, complete dentures can be used for five to seven years, after which, a replacement may be necessary. However, you may have to visit a dentist every 6 months for professional maintenance. Denture relining or rebasing may have to be done. The prosthodontist would refit the denture base or make an entirely new denture base; the existing teeth would just be reused. Professional denture maintenance would ensure that you get to use the dentures longer too. Do not try to repair dentures yourself since you may end up bending parts that may ultimately weaken the overall structure and bring irreversible damage. Set up an appointment with a dentist if a denture cracks, chips, breaks, or if a tooth becomes loose. The necessary adjustment or repair could be made as soon as possible and you could get back to enjoying your life.
Visit Beautiful Smiles Dental and Denture Care to get natural looking dentures and superb denture care and repair services. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff would let you know of your denture and denture care options and our experienced dentists are dedicated to restoring beautiful smiles, so you no longer have to put up with the discomfort and self-confidence issues that teeth loss and poorly maintained dentures bring.
