If you are missing a single tooth or an entire dental arch, you may have problems with your ability to speak and eat. Missing teeth can also give your face a sunken appearance and make you look older than you truly are, and you may feel self-conscious in work or social settings. While many people think that dentures are reserved only for older people, the truth is that adults of all ages are missing teeth or need to have teeth replaced. If you have grown tired of hiding your smile and living with missing teeth, contact our dentist, Dr. Brian Han, to learn more about your options for dentures in Fircrest, Washington. Fircrest Family Dental offers full and partial dentures to our patients.
Dentures are removable restorations that can fill out your smile. Full dentures are used to replace an entire dental arch and may need to be held in place with denture cream or strips. Partial are used to replace one or more missing teeth and are often held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth. Dentures do require a period of adjustment, and Dr. Han will provide you with instructions on how to clean and care for them. To see if full or partial dentures are right for your smile, call our office today at 253-843-6033 to schedule your appointment.
