Dentures and Partial Dentures

There are different types of dentures, but they share their common function. They replace teeth that have become loose or been lost due to bone loss. When bone loss around the roots of teeth is great enough to loosen them or let them fall out, it's time for dentures. Relax. No one enjoys losing their natural teeth, but you can still eat and talk regularly with dentures.

When you come into Allen Dental & Denture Clinic we examine the entire mouth and a determination is made as to which teeth will have to be removed, and which will remain. In most cases the dentures are made previous to extraction, so you will not have to go without teeth for any extended period of time. The loose teeth are then extracted. Dentures are fitted to go over or around whatever teeth remain in the mouth, depending on the type. There is an adjustment period after dentures are placed in the mouth, and it can take some getting used to. But once accustomed to the dentures, all the normal functionality and appearance return and one just carries on as usual. Often implants or gold thimbles can be used to further stabilize the dentures. To learn more about dentures, call our office at 425-670-8670 to speak with our denturist.
