Dentures Q & A

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic teeth that can be either removable or permanently implanted in the mouth. Dentures are natural looking teeth replacements that are custom designed for each patient. This means that the dentures will match the size, shape, and overall appearance of the natural teeth that they are replacing.

What Are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures, also known as dental bridges, are affixed to the natural teeth for support. The partial dentures fill in the teeth gaps, blending seamlessly with the natural teeth. Partial dentures can be detachable or fixed, based on the patient's needs and preferences. Fixed partial dentures are permanently set into place using a dental crown. Whether the partial dentures are fixed or removable, they will serve a vital role in keeping the remaining natural teeth in a state of correct alignment and preventing shifting.

What Are Complete Dentures?

Complete dentures replace the entire top row of teeth, the entire bottom row of teeth, or both rows of teeth. All teeth must be extracted from the mouth for this type of dentures. Complete dentures suction to the gums firmly, which allows a person to have both the appearance and the functionality of having a full mouth of teeth again.

What is the Best Way to Take Care of Dentures?

Dentures need to be cleaned on a daily basis, just like natural teeth. Dentures should be brushed with a special denture brush and a denture cleaning solution. While dentures are not in the mouth, they should be kept moist, usually in a denture solution. Dentures should feel comfortable after a short period of adjustment. If patients start to notice denture shifting or ill fit, contact the team at Sunrise Dental of SeaTac to arrange an appointment. Dentures may need to be relined for a proper fit every few years.
