What are full and partial Dentures?
Personalized dentures are a great option to help address lost teeth. These prosthetic restorations can make it more convenient to talk, bite into food with self-assurance, and revitalize the appearance of your teeth after tooth loss. Dr. Hal Kussick designs full and partial detachable and implant-supported dentures for adults of all ages in Seattle, WA. Single-arch dentures take the place of each of the teeth in the top arch, lower arch, or both. Additionally, patients who have some teeth may benefit from partial dentures. At [email protected], our team can help you decide if detachable or implant-supported dentures work best for your requirements and have them custom-made to produce an attractive appearance and comfortable fit. Schedule your denture exam with Dr. Kussick to learn more.

How do full and partial dentures work?
Our staff will begin the process by taking 3D or physical impressions of the top and lower arches. Once we have impressions, Dr. Kussick will send them to an advanced dental lab. Here, they will make your full and partial dentures. No matter which type of denture you need, we create them out of light resin and a titanium framework. With the use of these high-grade substances, dentures can replicate the appearance of natural teeth and gums. As soon as we create your dentures and they come back to [email protected], we will schedule you for a fitting consultation. Dr. Kussick can make adjustments to your dentures — so they fit comfortably or attach them to already positioned titanium posts. We will also talk about the appropriate methods to maintain your new dentures.
How do you care for dentures?
You can clean your full or partial dentures with a non-abrasive soap or a special denture paste. It is important not to use regular toothpaste on your dentures as toothpaste contains ingredients that could be harmful to the materials in your dentures.
What if my dentures do not fit comfortably?
It may take a few days to get accustomed to your new dentures, but if you've had your dentures for a while and they no longer fit as they used to, it may be time to have your dentures relined. Come to your dental office in Seattle, WA, to speak to your dentist about getting a reline.
Are there dietary restrictions with dentures?
It may take some time to adjust to eating with dentures, but for the most part, patients can return to eating normally. It is not recommended that you consume chewing gum with dentures.
