Dentures Spokane, WA
Dentures are considered one of the most popular choices when it comes to tooth replacement. They are mostly recommended for people who have lost all of their teeth. Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. They can be made of materials like porcelain, plastic, or metal.
Dentures are usually held in place by suction or unique dental adhesive. They can be removed and cleaned easily. At Northview Family Dental, Dr. Leale and Dr. Startin are denture experts, and both can provide you the expertise during the entire procedure. Plus, our team of dental assistants is sure to make the process smooth.
Types of Dentures
Two main types of dentures are partial and complete dentures. The application of both depends upon the patient's purpose and need. Our dental surgeon will give you the right suggestion.
Partial dentures can be used when the patient still has a few teeth in the mouth, while complete dentures are used when no teeth are present, to support a partial or incomplete denture.
Dentures can be immediate or conventional. Immediate dentures, also called same-day dentures, are made in advance and can be inserted right after the natural teeth are removed. Conventional dentures, on the other hand, are made after the gum tissue has healed and the natural teeth have been removed.
Same-day dentures are made of plastic or acrylic and are not as durable as conventional dentures. They also need to be replaced sooner.
Benefits of Dentures
Wearing dentures has many benefits. It can help improve the appearance of a person’s smile and restore their chewing and speaking ability. Moreover, it can also support the facial muscles and prevent sagging of the face.
Dentures vs. Dental Implants
Dental implants are made of titanium and other materials compatible with the human body. Titanium is a metal that is well tolerated by bone and produces minimal reactions in soft tissues.
However, dentures are removable and must be taken out at night. They also require unique cleaning solutions and have to be handled with care.
Which one is better? It depends on the individual’s needs and preferences. Dental implants may be the better choice if you want a more permanent solution. But if you want a less invasive and more affordable option, then dentures may be the way to go.
A dental veneer is a thin, custom-made shell designed to cover the front side of your teeth. They are made from porcelain or composite resin material and are an ideal solution for hiding stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth.
