A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. It is made to closely resemble your natural teeth and make improvements in your smile.
When it is necessary to remove natural teeth, Dr. Schmidt fabricates an immediate complete denture prior to any extractions. After the teeth are removed, the immediate complete denture is placed to act as an oral bandage. It is not necessary for the patient to go without teeth at any time. Dr. Schmidt follows the patient through the healing phase very carefully to ensure that his Burien, WA dentures fits comfortably and properly.
Well-designed and properly fitted dentures in Burien, WA are a beautiful and effective replacement for missing teeth. By considering facial balance and harmony as well as the contours of the tissue, we create a comfortable, secure fit for a natural look, normal eating and speaking, and confident smiling!
Aesthetic try-in appointments allow us to align denture teeth to the exact position the patient desires, often creating a replica of the smile they recall from their youth.
When significant bone loss is present in the lower arch, a lower denture with a long-term soft liner may provide the comfort needed for improved function. Dr. Schmidt’s original research in developing the use of long-term soft liners has made him an internationally recognized authority on this process.
