Dentures are a well-known and popular restorative dentistry option for replacing lost teeth, and one of the most affordable. Dr. Cory Gaunt is an experienced restorative dentist who can create comfortable partial or complete dentures for members of our dental family that need to replace missing teeth. Downriver Smiles in Spokane is your quality, professional source for tooth replacement options.
Traditional dentures are a set of prosthetic teeth with a plastic palate that fits over the gums. They are secured by pressure, and additional support can be provided by pastes or powders. Partial dentures replace just a few teeth and use your existing teeth to support the denture. Dentures are functional and affordable, which makes them very popular. However, they are removable and must be taken out for cleaning. Some patients take a while to become accustomed to wearing them, eating and more.
Advanced Options in Dentures
Traditional dentures are a perfectly normal teeth replacement option, and many patients are completely satisfied with them. Other patients may wish for more strength and stability for their dentures. Downriver Smiles also offers advanced options that combine the affordability of dentures with the strength of dental implants. These can offer better function and appearance than traditional dentures.
Implant-supported dentures can be fixed into place permanently to dental implants or connected to implants with a removable option. Different denture options also require more or fewer dental implants to secure into place. Function, the condition of your jawbone and your budget are all major considerations when choosing the best denture option for you. Dr. Gaunt and our skilled team at Downriver Smiles can explain the benefits of each option, as well as the costs, to help you make the best personal decision.
