Dentures Q & A

Are there different types of dentures?

Northwest Smile Center’s cosmetic dentists and licensed denturists offer a range of complete treatment options for patients of all ages. 

From the initial consultation to the first denture fitting, or a later denture relining or repair, the expert team offers the highest quality materials and overall experience. Denture options at Northwest Smile Center include:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures

Licensed denturists construct all dentures on site in the dental labs at Northwest Smile Center. This is a great advantage, as you can see your dentures throughout the process. 

Your denturist can make adjustments and changes along the way to ensure the ideal fit and most aesthetically pleasing finished product.

Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?

If you're in need of full dentures because you've lost your teeth due to decay, illness, or injury, you could be a perfect candidate for immediate dentures. 

Immediate dentures are readily available, which means you don't have to suffer the inconvenience of not having teeth. 

Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.

Should I get partial dentures?

Removable partial dentures with a metal frame are the most common type of partial dentures. Unlike full dentures, which replace all of your natural teeth, partial dentures only replace missing teeth. 

The rigid metal frame provides sturdy support for chewing, particularly when you're missing molars. Partial dentures with metal frames securely anchor to your existing teeth and stay in place without the use of dental adhesives.

Acrylic partial dentures are a less expensive option for tooth replacement; however, they're also less durable than metal ones. Acrylic partials are usually a temporary solution for missing front teeth while the dentist makes permanent partials or bridges.

Where do I go for denture repairs?

Northwest Smile Center's licensed denturists can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs take place on-site.
