Pros and cons: dentures vs. dental implants near me in Kirkland

Dental Dentures Near Me Kirkland

When patients in the Kirkland area are faced with tooth loss, they need to speak to a professional about their tooth restoration options. There are several ways in which the smile can be repaired, including the use of dentures and dental implants. However, many patients who are searching for a dentist “near me” in the community are often interested in learning about the pros and cons of dentures vs. dental implants.

  • Dentures. Dentures are restorations made to replace one or more teeth. They are fabricated from metal or acrylic, or both, and may be full or partial. Partials replace one or several teeth in the dental arch using a metal and acrylic framework, and false teeth that slide into place, while full dentures replace all the teeth within the dental arch with acrylic, including false teeth and gum tissues.
  • Dental implants. The other option for patients to consider is dental implants. These are titanium posts surgically placed into the bone of the jaw and restored in a variety of ways. Dental implants are often considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement because of their permanency.

Dentures vs. implants

There are many things to think about when comparing the pros and cons of dentures and. dental implants. Here are just a few considerations patients may learn about when they consult with the team of Kingsgate Dental regarding their tooth replacement options:

 - 5 Star Rating Review I have gone to Kingsgate Dental for about two years now, and every experience has been excellent. Dr. Kelley is very knowledgeable and very thorough with her analysis of the issues that I have faced with my teeth. The staff is polite and always happy to answer any questions that I have and give me pointers to improve my dental hygiene. I will continue to go to Kingsgate Dental/Dr Kelley for years to come.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
