If you need to replace missing teeth, look no further than Lakeside Dental in Spokane Valley, WA. We provide both full and partial dentures with the best possible denture labs. Our dentures are not only durable, but they are natural and attractive as well. We are here to help make your smile whole again.
Often referred to as “plates” full upper or lower dentures replace all of the upper or lower teeth. With a full upper or lower denture, the existing teeth (typically diseased teeth) are extracted before the denture can be worn.
Of course, whenever possible, natural teeth are optimal. When several teeth are missing, but various healthy teeth remain, a partial denture can be used. Unlike full dentures, partial dentures are used to replace some-but not all-teeth. Partials come in several forms, the most common being acrylic base, and metal base. Teeth are attached to the base, and made in the size and color of the remaining teeth.
In some cases, implant supported overdentures are preferable over traditional dentures. Traditional dentures adhere to your mouth by creating suction between the base and your gums. However, in some cases, conventional dentures will shift. When this happens, another solution is implant overdentures. Implant overdentures permanently affix your denture in place.
If you have removable dentures, we highly recommend removing them each night. Soak the denture in a cleaning solution and brush it the next morning. This will keep your dentures clean, preserve the strength of your jawbone and help reduce infection.
If you have a cracked or broken denture, please call us at (509) 381-4187. We will gladly repair or replace your dentures better than it was before. Dentures typically last a few years before it starts to lose its fit. When this happens, we can easily reline the base of your denture.
If you wear dentures, please bring them with you to your dental exams.
