What Are Dentures?

Dentures are custom-made artificial teeth that do more than just bring back your ability to eat and speak – they bring comfort and confidence back to your smile. If you’ve lost many teeth due to issues like oral health conditions or accidents, dentures could be a practical and affordable fix for your tooth loss concerns.

These tooth replacements rely on the support of your gums, jawbone, and nearby teeth to fit snugly and comfortably. Dr. Webley, our skilled restorative dentist in Everett, even offers a more permanent denture solution by attaching them to dental implants. In a consultation, Dr. Webley will determine which denture option works best for you, aligning with your dental needs and smile goals. Get ready for a renewed smile designed just for you!

Reasons for Needing Dentures

Tooth loss can result from various factors, and dentures play a vital role in restoring oral health and functionality.

  • Decay: Untreated cavities can lead to severe tooth decay, and these teeth may need extraction.
  • Gum Disease: Advanced stages of gum disease (periodontitis) can result in tooth loss as the supporting structures deteriorate.
  • Trauma: Accidents or injuries can cause significant damage to the teeth, requiring extraction.
  • Chewing Difficulties: Missing teeth can hinder proper chewing, affecting digestion and nutritional intake.
  • Speech Impairment: Gaps from missing teeth can alter speech patterns, leading to difficulties in pronunciation.
  • Shift in Facial Structure: Tooth loss can cause changes in facial appearance as adjacent teeth may shift, impacting overall facial aesthetics.
  • Bone Resorption: Without the stimulation from tooth roots, the jawbone can begin to shrink over time, leading to further oral health complications.

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures offer a range of advantages, addressing both functional and aesthetic aspects of oral health.

  • Restored Functionality: Dentures enable individuals to chew various foods, promoting better digestion and overall nutrition.
  • Enhanced Speech: Full and partial dentures help in articulating sounds more clearly, minimizing speech impediments caused by missing teeth.
  • Natural Appearance: Advances in denture technology allow for natural-looking artificial teeth, restoring a confident and aesthetically pleasing smile.
  • Boosted Self-Esteem: Dentures provide individuals with the confidence to interact socially without concerns about their appearance.
  • Preventing Sagging: Dentures support the facial muscles, preventing the sagging and sunken appearance that can occur with significant tooth loss.
  • Alignment Stability: Dentures maintain proper tooth alignment, preventing adjacent teeth from shifting into gaps left by missing teeth.
  • Bone Preservation: By replacing missing teeth, dentures help preserve the jawbone, reducing the risk of bone resorption.

Types of Dentures Offered at Our Everett Office

Complete Dentures

When you’re missing all of your natural teeth, complete dentures provide a comprehensive solution. This innovative appliance seamlessly replaces full arches of missing teeth, swiftly restoring your ability to speak, chew, and smile effortlessly. Dr. Webley can customize these dentures to mirror the appearance and function of your natural teeth. This non-invasive treatment is particularly beneficial for patients seeking full teeth replacement without undergoing extensive procedures. 

Partial Dentures

For those with some remaining natural teeth, our partial dentures offer an ideal solution. Crafted with strategically placed metal clasps, these dentures fit comfortably and naturally in your mouth, completing your smile with precision. The prosthetic teeth are meticulously designed to blend seamlessly with your existing natural teeth, ensuring a harmonious and complete look. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to ensure your dentures don’t shift or move out of place, unlike removable dentures. Our Everett office provides two types of implant-supported dentures:

  • Fixed implant-supported dentures are designed for a permanent fit, never requiring removal for daily oral hygiene routines. During your biannual visits, Dr. Webley will only remove them for professional cleanings and adjustments.
  • Removable implant-supported dentures (snap-in dentures) are popular amongst our patients since they’re removable for easy cleaning. The “snap-in” mechanism offers both stability and convenience, allowing you to maintain oral hygiene with ease. 

Removable implant-supported dentures – “Snap-in-and-out”

Denture Process at Just Smile Dental

Initial Consultation

At the beginning of your denture experience, Dr. Webley conducts a thorough dental examination, delving into your medical history. We’ll obtain impressions and X-rays of your teeth through advanced digital scanning, providing precise data for evaluation. This comprehensive assessment allows Dr. Webley to determine the suitability of dentures for your unique needs.

Treatment Planning

Utilizing the gathered information, Dr. Webley crafts a customized treatment plan tailored to your oral health requirements. During this phase, he discusses the various denture options available, ensuring you are informed and comfortable with the recommended approach.

Digital Design Advantage

Embrace the benefits of cutting-edge dental technology, where discomfort from traditional impressions is a thing of the past. Dr. Webley employs digital scans to design your dentures with enhanced accuracy. This not only expedites the fabrication process but also eliminates the need for multiple try-in phases, streamlining your path to a well-fitted denture.

Efficient Fabrication

Thanks to digital precision, the fabrication of your dentures is remarkably efficient. With as few as two appointments, your dentures are created and fitted, allowing you to leave our Everett dental office with your rejuvenated smile sooner than traditional denture methods would allow.

Care and Maintenance of Dentures

Proper care and maintenance are essential for ensuring your dentures’ longevity and optimal performance. Follow these guidelines to keep your dentures in excellent condition:

Gently brush your dentures each day using a soft-bristle brush to effectively remove food particles and plaque. It’s advisable to avoid regular toothpaste due to its potential abrasiveness; instead, opt for a denture cleaner or mild soap. Additionally, ensure the longevity and cleanliness of your dentures by soaking them overnight in a denture-cleaning solution or warm water, aiding in the preservation of their shape and overall hygiene.

Ensure the optimal condition of your dentures by keeping them moist when not in use, which helps prevent drying out or shape distortion. Store them in a denture-soaking solution or plain water. Additionally, avoid using hot water for soaking or cleaning, as it can potentially lead to warping of the dentures.

Schedule routine check-ups with your dentist in Everett. These appointments include professional cleanings and examinations, allowing Dr. Webley to assess the proper fit of your dentures, make necessary adjustments, and address any emerging issues before they escalate. Additionally, these check-ups involve a thorough oral health assessment, during which your dentist evaluates the condition of your gums and any remaining natural teeth, providing comprehensive oral care for your overall well-being.

To safeguard your dentures from accidental damage, handle them with care and avoid dropping them. When handling, consider placing a towel or a soft surface in the sink to minimize the risk of breakage. Additionally, when removing dentures, do so over a basin of water or a soft surface to prevent potential damage if they happen to slip from your hands. Taking these precautions helps your dentures last and function properly.

Prioritize gum care for optimal oral health. Use a soft brush to gently clean your gums, tongue, and palate, stimulating circulation and eliminating bacteria. Additionally, if you have partial dentures, uphold regular oral hygiene habits by consistently brushing your natural teeth and gums. These practices contribute to overall oral health, promoting a clean and healthy environment for both your dentures and natural teeth.

When utilizing denture adhesive, it’s crucial to meticulously follow the manufacturer’s instructions, applying only the recommended amount to prevent excess residue. If you encounter persistent issues related to fit or comfort, consult your dentist. They can assess the situation and make any necessary adjustments to enhance the overall performance of your dentures, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit
