Complete and Partial Dentures in Lynnwood
Dentist, Lynnwood, WA
Are you embarrassed by your smile due to lack of a few or many teeth? When you have missing teeth, it’s not easy to smile confidently. However, many people with missing teeth benefit from dentures.
Dentures are custom-made replacements for patients who have missing all or many of their teeth. Without support from dentures, facial muscles sag and make people look older. Dentures can be taken out and put back into your mouth with ease. Moreover, they will help you eat and speak comfortably and improve your appearance and simile. At Lynnwood Dental Studio we offer full, partial, and immediate dentures. Call (425) 778 5665 to find out a suitable denture for you. For more information click Dentures.

Types of Dentures
Dentures are classified by the number of teeth they replace and the way they are held in the mouth. They can be Conventional or Immediate Full Dentures. Conventional full dentures are used to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, and partial dentures are used when the patient still has some of their natural teeth.
Conventional dentures fit directly over the gums in the mouth. A conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are removed. Conventional dentures are a good choice for those who cannot undergo dental implant surgery due to poor healing, diabetes, due to cost, or an autoimmune condition. They are also suitable for patients whose jaw-bone structure is not strong enough to support implants.
Full dentures replace all teeth in the upper or lower arch. Some patients only wear a lower denture or upper denture, whereas other patients wear both. Generally, your dentist will wait until after you've healed from having your teeth extracted before designing a denture for you to wear, which takes time. If you do not want to wait, a different type of denture called an immediate full denture can be placed in your jaw immediately after your remaining teeth have been extracted.
Partial dentures replace just some of the teeth. If you are missing all your molars but still have your incisors, your dentist may design a partial denture with wires that fit over your front teeth, and false teeth that sit in where your molars once were. Every partial denture is different, and if you lose additional teeth after having your partial denture made, your dentist can often alter the denture to add new false teeth as needed.
Implant-supported dentures also known as mini-implants anchor onto four or more titanium screws that your dentist inserts into your jawbone during a surgical procedure. This type of denture has several advantages. It does not move as you speak and chew, and you do not need to use glue or cement to hold it in place. Implant-supported dentures often look and feel more natural on the mouth than conventional dentures. However, they do require a surgical procedure, which not all patients are comfortable with, and they are more costly than conventional dentures.
Cost of Dentures
The cost of dentures depends on the material used and the extent of customization. At Lynnwood Dental Studio dentures cost between $1000 and $2000.
Although your new denture will fit your mouth properly, over time, the tissue growth in the gums change. As a result, the denture becomes loose and moves inside your mouth. You need a reliner over the denture to keep it secure and functional.
Soft Reliner. Some patients are uncomfortable wearing ordinary dentures due to tender gums, sore spots, or sharp bony areas. In this case, your dentist may recommend lining the denture with a soft material (soft reliner) to provide relief. Soft liners can also be used when creating new dentures or retrofitted into existing dentures.
Temporary Reliner. If you do not receive the denture in time, your gums may become inflamed, swollen, or misshapen. This creates problems in taking impressions for a new hard or soft reline and may lead to complications. In this case, your dentist may recommend a temporary or medicated reline material that reduces inflammation. After a few weeks, the gums return to a more normal state and you will be ready for new denture.
