Dentures in Tacoma WA

When it comes to dentures, we believe it’s important to have options. We want you to be able to choose the style and fit that works best for you and your lifestyle.

Dentures can play a big role in your life, which is why we don’t want you to settle for anything you aren’t fully satisfied with! At our practice, you have different types of dentures to choose from, each with their own distinct benefits.

Traditional Dentures

Our traditional dentures will restore your natural face shape and make it easier to speak and eat again. These dentures rest on top of the gums. They are easily removed for easy cleaning.

While these unattached dentures’ tendency to shift in place can be inconvenient, especially while talking or eating, the process of being fitted for traditional dentures is generally fast and simple. Once a dentist has taken an impression, dentures can be made to fit your exact specifications.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures, just like traditional dentures, will get rid of the sunken appearance that sometimes comes when a full set of teeth are missing.

However, these dentures have the advantage of remaining fixed in place, which dramatically reduces the chances of them falling out or slipping during inconvenient moments.

Because these dentures must attach to implants in the jaw, the first step in the process is having these implants placed. Once the jawbone has healed around these implants, you can begin the process of having the dentures themselves fitted and designed for you.

Permanent or Removable

Implant-supported dentures can be permanent or removable.

Permanent dentures remain in your mouth like natural teeth. Care is fairly simple as well. Rather than the cups of water and denture cleanser that are used for removable dentures, you can brush these dentures like your natural teeth.

If you would still like the ability to remove your dentures, implant-supported dentures can be removable as well. You’ll have the ability to snap your dentures in and out when you want to, without worrying that they won’t stay in place as you go about your day.

You Have Options!

We can help you explore each of these options before you decide which type of denture will best fit your needs. At a consultation, we can also help you decide by evaluating your health, which can be a factor in denture choices.
