Dentures are one of the most traditional solutions for the replacement of missing teeth available in dentistry. At SoundBridge Center for Dental Arts, Dr. Karla Bloomquist creates full, partial and implant retained dentures for Gig Harbor patients that restore and enhance the natural beauty and function of missing teeth.
Our dentist in Gig Harbor will help you decide which type of denture is best for you. Partial dentures are a great solution for anyone missing multiple teeth–especially adjacent teeth on one side. Full dentures are ideal when many missing or unhealthy teeth are compromising the integrity of your mouth. The focus of any denture is to renew the purpose and aesthetics of your smile.
“Implant-supported dentures offer the greatest satisfaction and improved quality of life!”
The best results are provided with implant retained dentures. Dentures that are locked into place with the use of dental implants offer a durable foundation for biting and prevent any looseness or movement so that you can eat, speak, and smile without worry. You may also notice an improvement in food taste and texture sensations once your dentures are supported with dental implants.
What really makes an implant retained denture stand out from traditional alternatives is their ability to preserve bone health. With traditional dentures, the jawbone doesn’t have the support needed to maintain a stable environment for the bone structure, and the bone will begin to resorb year after year. Dental implants act as a direct replacement for the missing tooth root, halting the bone deterioration process and protecting bone health and facial structure. Patients who have lived for years with traditional denture options and have switched to implant retained dentures absolutely love the overall results and benefits they provide.
Dr. Bloomquist has the skill and qualification to perform needed extractions and surgery for all types of dentures right in her Gig Harbor office. Discuss your tooth replacement options with Dr. Bloomquist at SoundBridge Center for Dental Arts.
