Losing some or most of your teeth can be devastating to your health and well-being. Your teeth are vital for chewing and speech; they also support your face and create your smile. Dentures offer a chance to restore your smile, improve your health and boost your self-confidence. At Scott A. Babin, DDS and Associates in Renton, WA, we provide a wide variety of dental restorations for members of our dental family, including partial and complete dentures.
Dentures are designed to fit your gums and replace your natural teeth. A complete set of dentures has an upper and lower set of teeth that are customized for your mouth, but you can have only an upper or lower set that is designed to match your existing teeth and bite. Traditional complete dentures are removable and held in place with adhesive. With conventional dentures, removal is recommended for sleeping and cleaning.
Another option in dentures are implant-secured dentures. The dentures are held in place by four or more implants, eliminating the need to remove them for cleaning and improving their performance. These types of dentures are popular due to their comfort and reliability. You can laugh, eat and talk with confidence, knowing your dentures are securely held in place.
If you have several teeth missing, a partial denture or removable bridge is a convenient option to restore your smile. Partial dentures can be easily slipped into place, filling the gaps in your smile. Partial dentures are an affordable option for those who are not good candidates for dental implants for fixed dental bridges.
