If you have lost multiple teeth, our dentist may recommend dentures to restore your smile’s beauty and functionality. Dentures are removable oral appliances that can be used to replace either just a few missing teeth or all of your teeth. A denture consists of artificial (prosthetic) teeth that are set into a pink, gum-colored base. Our dentures at Meadowdale Dental Clinic are custom made to fit comfortably and to mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gum tissues. Based on your personal needs, we offer two main types of dentures in Lynnwood, Washington:
• Complete dentures – Also called full dentures, complete dentures are used to replace a full arch of teeth. A complete denture is shaped like a horseshoe and can be worn in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches.
• Partial dentures – A partial denture is used when some of your natural teeth are still left. In many cases, the partial denture includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the neighboring teeth for stability.
Dr. Lois Lee will make certain you receive the type of denture you need to improve your smile’s function, appearance, and health. When in place, dentures can restore lost facial volume and improve your ability to properly chew, eat, and speak once again. We invite you to contact our office today to learn more about dentures and how we can restore your smile.
