Are dentures worth it? Learn about affordable solutions in Kirkland, WA!
Patients in Kirkland, WA who are seeking affordable, quality dental care for their smiles are welcome to contact Dr. Ann Kelley of Kingsgate Dental. Her practice provides general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions for patients of all ages. This includes dentures.
What are dentures?
When patients are missing one or more teeth, they can turn to our dentist to learn about replacement options. There are several ways for a patient to replace missing teeth, including:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
Dentures are the most affordable of the three, providing improved function and appearance without having to break the bank. Dr. Ann Kelley often encourages patients to consider them as an option. This includes full and partial dentures. Full dentures are those made of acrylic that replace the entire arch of teeth, while partials are made of metal and acrylic framework to snap into place within the dental arch and use the existing teeth for support.
Are dentures worth it?
Many of our patients enjoy dentures. Dentures can be removed easily for simple cleaning and adjustments. Dentures are not fixed, so they can be taken out. We encourage patients to bring their dentures with them to every appointment, so we can check for overall fit and function. Dentures can last many years with proper care. However, over time, some patients start to desire something more permanent for their smile. Patients with partial dentures may begin to ask about alternative options such as bridges or implants, while patients with full dentures may start to think about the benefits of moving forward with implant-retained dentures. These are dentures that snap into place over dental implants, which provide the ultimate in stability and strength. This eliminates the need for patients to use denture adhesives or rely on natural suction to keep their dentures in place.
