Even if you do your best to care for your natural teeth, you may sometimes suffer tooth loss due to trauma, decay, or gum disease. Tooth loss impacts your appearance, your ability to eat and speak, and the way you perceive yourself as an individual. You may shun social settings due to feeling self-conscious about your appearance. Your career may suffer due to a loss of confidence and self-esteem. Natural-looking dentures from Kingsgate Dental in Kirkland, Washington, can resolve these and other tooth loss issues.
Types of Dentures
At Kingsgate Dental, we offer various denture options to suit your unique dental care needs.
- Traditional full dentures are removable prosthetics used to replace all of your teeth due to bone loss from periodontal disease.
- Partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth in a row and are generally anchored to adjacent healthy teeth with a metal connector for stability. At night, these teeth are removed for cleaning.
- Implant-supported dentures (full or partial) are permanently anchored in place with dental implants to keep them from moving when you talk or eat. They closely function, feel, and look like natural teeth as the implant functions like a tooth root.
- Snap-in dentures are supported by implants but snap in and out of place as opposed to being permanently attached to the implant.
Purpose of Dentures
Losing natural teeth can impact your ability to chew, your speech, and your oral health, not to mention your smile! Dentures take the place of lost natural teeth to restore chewing efficiency, clarity of speech, and your smile, so you can eat, speak, and smile with ease.

Dentures fill the gaps left by missing teeth to keep natural teeth in alignment and facilitate brushing and flossing to avoid plaque build-up that can lead to cavities. By taking accurate impressions of your mouth and teeth, Dr. Ann Kelley can help fabricate prosthetics that look, feel, and function as closely as possible to natural teeth.
