Tooth Replacement Can Significantly Improve Your Life!
Missing teeth can make it harder to do simple things, such as talking and eating your favorite foods. It can also cause you to feel self-conscious. At Renton Smile Dentistry, we can rejuvenate your smile and help you feel more like your old self!
Imagine having the functionality of your old bite back—and a more complete smile, with no more gaps. At Renton Smile Dentistry, at our Renton, WA denture clinic, we make it possible! Our flexible, partial denture smile solutions can improve our patients’ daily lives.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Our partial dentures are custom made prosthetics constructed to support one or more false teeth. Your flexible partial denture is stabilized using metal clips that attach to your remaining healthy teeth or to a newly placed crown. Soft, gum colored plastic blends your partial denture into your smile, and we carefully color match your false teeth to your remaining teeth. The result is a more functional, natural-looking smile!
What To Expect
To start, we will take a cast of your mouth to send to the lab, where your prosthetic will be precision fabricated for optimal fit. If any tooth preparation is required for your new partial denture, such as a crown to anchor it, we will aim to complete it while the lab works. Once the lab sends us your prosthetic, Dr. Kaur will fit it to your mouth, making careful adjustments to ensure your comfort and the most ergonomic fit.
Taking Care of Your Partial Denture
Gently brush your new partial denture each day with a brush designed for cleaning dentures, or a soft-bristled toothbrush. Clean your dentures daily with a mild soap. It is important to keep your denture moist, so place it in water or soaking solution before you go to bed. Rinse it every morning, and it should serve you well for a long time!
Dentures may require adjustments over time due to normal wear and tear, as well as to the changing shape of your mouth as it ages.
Call our office if your dentures begin to rub or feel uncomfortable and we will get you in as soon as possible for a quick adjustment.
