Dentures & Partials
In the past, you had few choices if you wanted to replace a missing tooth. Today, there are so many tooth replacement options available, that it can be a challenge to know which is right for you.
When you need to replace missing teeth, turn to Dr. Troy Kehmali, a general dentist in Bellevue who offers removable full and partial dentures, as well as dental bridges and dental implants. We can even pair implants with dentures for a stable, secure fit.
Types of Dentures We Offer
Each of our valued patients is unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach won’t work for them. We offer several types of dentures and will help you determine which is right for you:
- Full removable dentures replace all missing teeth in your upper arch, lower arch, or both.
- Partial dentures are for partial tooth loss and are designed to fit in and around remaining teeth.
- Implant dentures use dental implants placed in your jaw to hold them securely in place.
If you would like to learn more about the type of denture that will work well for you, schedule an appointment at our Bellevue dental office, and Dr. Kemahli will be happy to assist you.
What’s Changed about Modern Denture?
It’s easy to reject the idea of dentures if all you’ve ever seen are fake-looking artificial teeth that look too perfect to be real. Except for the basic function, however, dentures today are nothing like they used to be.
The materials used to create the base of your denture are lighter and more pliable and contribute to a more comfortable, secure fit. We give great thought to the design and look of your new dentures, and planning usually takes several visits. This time is well-spent, however, because it allows you and Dr. Kemahli to perfect every detail, down to the shade, shape, and position of each tooth in the gum-colored base.
The goal is that when we deliver your final dentures, they function well, look natural, and enhance the appearance of your smile.
Pairing Dentures with Dental Implants
Full dentures designed for you at our Bellevue dental office will fit more comfortably and securely than you ever thought they could. However, many patients want a more stable solution than removable dentures offer.
In this case, Dr. Kemahli would recommend implant-retained dentures. Four to six dental implants are placed in your jaw at specific points, then allowed to heal and integrate with the jawbone. Your full denture is designed with attachments that snap onto the dental implants and can only be removed by Dr. Kemahli.
Dental implants ensure the most stable, comfortable fit possible. You also have peace of mind knowing that you can eat all your favorite foods or laugh, sneeze, or cough, and your dentures are going to stay securely in place.
