Dentures are popular when it comes to smile restoration. Thanks to the amazing advancements in modern dentistry, having dentures has never been easier and more customizable than ever before. Here at Mark Andrews, D.D.S. in Kirkland, Washington, our friendly staff is happy to talk to you about our two kinds of dentures, so you can determine which fit would be the best fit for you.
Complete dentures are used to replace all your teeth in an arch of your mouth. There are times, where you may only need one arch depending on your individual needs. However, whether you need one arch or both, our staff can give you the set you need to complete your smile. One thing you can use to secure your dentures into place is using a denture adhesive, so you can have stability with your dentures.
A partial denture is used if you are missing teeth, continue to have some remaining natural teeth. This denture has thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a strong and secure fit. With partial dentures, you may still have some healthy teeth of your own. Having the secure fit with your natural teeth can give you stability with your partial dentures.
As you can see, depending on your specific smile, your dentures can be matched to fit your specific need. If you still have questions about dentures or have other questions about your oral care, please call us today at 425-821-8100 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff is always happy to address your questions and concerns about your smile.
