Dentures are artificial teeth that can replace more than one missing permanent tooth or all of your teeth. You might need dentures if your teeth fall out or if you require extraction because of severe tooth decay. The Issaquah Dental Care team offers a variety of dentures to meet your individualized needs.
Your provider helps you choose the right dentures after going over your dental history, taking X-rays, and looking at your gums and teeth. Your provider might recommend:
Conventional dentures are removable dentures used to replace your upper arch, lower arch, or all of your teeth. You can take them out at night when you sleep.
Your provider can fit you for immediate dentures the same day as your teeth extractions. These dentures help you avoid going toothless during the healing process. After your gums heal, your Issaquah Dental Care provider might recommend replacement or realignment.
Overdentures fit over some of your remaining natural teeth. To be a good candidate for overdentures, you must have some natural teeth strong enough to support your new dentures.
Implant-supported dentures attach to titanium posts inserted in your jaw. Multiple dental visits, and several months of healing, are required.
Care for fixed dentures the same way as natural teeth by brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing every day, and seeing the Issaquah Dental Care team every six months for professional cleanings and exams.
Soak removable dentures in a cleaning solution or water at night when you sleep. Brush your mouth and dentures with a toothbrush and a non-abrasive denture cleaning product.
Don’t chew on hard objects like ice, pens, or hard candy. Don’t open packages with your teeth, and wear a night guard with fixed implant-supported dentures if you grind your teeth while you sleep. Call the Issaquah Dental Care team if your dentures become loose or get damaged.
