Full Dentures Q & A

What are full dentures?

Dentures are a tooth replacement option, and full dentures replace all of your natural teeth. Today's dentures are light years beyond the options available just a decade ago.

If you have doubts about the aesthetic appeal of dentures, you owe it to yourself to see how transformative a full set of dentures can be. Technological advancements have created new types of materials and new manufacturing tools that allow for a natural look and an incredible fit.

Full custom dentures are a cornerstone of Premier Denture in Mill Creek, Washington.

How are dentures held in place?

With properly crafted conventional dentures, most people don’t need any further help keeping them in place throughout the day.

If you're anxious about your dentures moving in your mouth, there are numerous adhesives on the market that can help you feel more confident that your dentures are securely in place.

Another option for anchoring dentures is a system known as implant overdentures. This solution involves a set of custom dentures that attach to dental implants. Because those implants are anchored directly into your natural bone tissue, the dentures are held securely in place and are not removed unless repair is necessary.

What is involved in getting a set of full dentures?

The process often begins with extracting any remaining teeth and allowing time for your gum tissue to heal. Once your gums are healthy, Herman Castaneda takes precise measurements of the interior of your mouth. That information helps him craft your custom dentures.

Herman can also begin creating your dentures before your teeth are removed. Speak with him to see which approach is right for you.

An in-house denture lab at Premier Denture reduces the amount of time you’ll wait for your new dentures. Once they’re ready, you return to the office to have them fitted. Herman makes sure to take the time to check for proper fit, making adjustments as needed.

A gorgeous set of dentures are worth very little if they are uncomfortable to wear. That’s why achieving the best possible fit is so important. When you’re ready to learn more about the transformative power of a new set of dentures, schedule an appointment with Premier Denture either by phone or online right away.

Serving Bothell, Lynnwood, and Everett Washington can help fill your smile by creating partial dentures that match your natural teeth, giving you a great smile without the need for a full set of dentures. In fact, most people won’t even know that you’re wearing partial dentures. To find out if partial dentures are a good fit for your needs, schedule a consultation with Herman Castaneda today. You can always call the office to check for availability or schedule an appointment using the online cool.

Partial Dentures Q & A

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are a lasting tooth replacement option that allows you to retain as many of your natural teeth as possible. Saving your natural teeth is always the preferred approach, as they are anchored into your bone tissue and provide important stimulation that prevents bone loss.

When it comes to partial dentures, you have several options. They include:

Acrylic partials

While acrylic partials are an affordable option and stick better to the base of the dentures, they won’t last as long as other options. They can also change shape over time and may need to be re-fitted. Finally, they also don’t fit as well into your smile as well as partials made of chrome or titanium.

Metal framework partials

These types of partial dentures use small, customized “wings” that wrap around your natural teeth to anchor the partials into place. They can also be expanded to include additional teeth at a later date, if necessary.

Flexible partials

These dentures are aesthetically appealing, as they use no metal. They are held in place using a special gum-colored material that clasps around your natural teeth. They’re also incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear.

Is it possible to eat normally with partial dentures?

Your custom dentures allow you to eat normally, but you may experience an adjustment period while you get used to wearing them. It takes time to learn how to use your dentures correctly, and some types of food require a little more effort than others.

Within a relatively short period, you’ll be eating your favorite foods with no problem. If you’ve lived with severe dental issues for some time, your new dentures may allow you to enjoy foods you’ve lived without for many years.

Can I sleep with my dentures in place?

It is possible to sleep with your dentures in, but you should only do so when necessary. Taking your dentures out over night gives your gum and bone tissue time off from the pressure your dentures place on them throughout the day.

It’s also important to maintain good oral hygiene. Take time to remove your dentures and clean them thoroughly each day, and be sure also to clean your gums.

Immediate Dentures

If you require multiple extractions prior to getting a full set of permanent dentures but are apprehensive about living without teeth while you wait, immediate dentures may be right for you. At Premier Denture located in Mill Creek. Serving Bothell, Lynnwood, and Everett Washington, Herman Castaneda offers immediate dentures as one of many denture services. To learn more, or to address any questions or concerns you have regarding the best denture option for you, call to schedule an appointment today.

Immediate Dentures Q & A

What are immediate dentures?

Immediate dentures are placed into your mouth on the same day your teeth are extracted. They are also commonly referred to as temporary dentures, as they don’t last as long or fit as well as conventional full dentures.

Many people choose immediate dentures to achieve a great smile right away. Your gum tissue will still need to heal, but you can wear your immediate dentures throughout each day while the healing process takes place.

Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?

While immediate dentures may have many perks, they’re not for everyone.

The most positive aspect of immediate dentures is that you’ll have teeth as soon as you leave the office. You’ll also get a jump start on learning new speech patterns and eating habits while you wait for your permanent dentures to arrive. A set of immediate dentures can also serve as a handy back-up in case your permanent dentures break or are lost.

One of the downsides of immediate dentures is they’re one more service to pay for when purchasing dentures. Also, because your immediate dentures were crafted from measurements taken prior to having your natural teeth extracted, the fit may not be as seamless as with conventional dentures.

Herman will discuss your specific needs during your consultation. If needed, he can work with your dentist to coordinate your path from extraction to full dentures.

What’s the process for getting immediate dentures?

The process begins with an appointment with Herman Castaneda to measure your mouth. Once your extractions are complete, the new temporary dentures are fitted into position. In some cases, the back teeth are extracted first, which allows Herman to create immediate dentures with a better fit.

You may need to come back to the office to adjust the fit. As your gums heal, their shape will change, and your dentures might shift. A temporary relining material can be used to improve the fit. Some patients come in for four to five visits before they achieve the ideal fit.

When you’re ready to get started with conventional or immediate dentures, reach out to Premier Denture by phone or online to schedule an initial consultation.

Denture Rebases Q&A

What is the purpose of a rebase?

Rebasing a denture corrects problems with fit, preventing diseased gums, and making your dentures more comfortable and easy to wear. Over time, your gum tissue often changes. That can leave spaces between your gums and the base of your dentures.

Those spaces can cause the dentures to rub against your gums in a new way, which can be painful. It also makes enjoying your favorite foods difficult.

Rebasing is also necessary to correct the following issues:

Imperfections in the base material

Defects in manufacturing

Discolored denture base

Refining the fit of immediate dentures

Unlike other options that only replace the portion of the dentures that make contact with your gums, rebasing dentures replaces the entire material at the base of your dentures.

What kinds of rebases are available?

Determining which material to use requires a skilled approach, which is why it’s so important to work with a denturist with advanced training like Herman Castaneda.

What are the advantages of rebasing dentures?

If your dentures don’t fit, rebasing them may be a better option than replacing them. The perks of rebasing your dentures includes:


A rebase of your dentures helps you achieve a better fit without the expense of a new set of dentures. A rebase is an ideal solution If you are happy with the look of your dentures and they are still in good shape, rebasing can save you money.
