- Can you help with my loose and floppy dentures? A:
It’s no fun dealing with the daily struggle of ill-fitting dentures. The team at Prosthetic Dentistry of Tumwater can help. We can fit you with well-fitting dentures that, in most instances, will stay right where you want them without rubbing, clicking, or popping out. We understand that dentures are a very personal experience and that it is different for each person. In most situations, the proper fit will make a huge difference in everyday life.
We offer conventional full and partial dentures for both jaws, or for the best fit and performance, we can secure a set of dentures to dental implants. Not only will implant-secured dentures stay in place with no suction or adhesives, but dental implants will also help keep you healthier longer. It can lead to a healthier and happier life.
- What kinds of tooth repair do you do? A:
We perform many kinds of restorative dentistry at Prosthetic Dentistry of Tumwater. No matter what condition your mouth is in, we can help. Whether you need a tooth filled or you have no natural teeth left or you need a full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Jude has seen it all in his 30-year dental career.
We offer any kind of repair in between as well, including dental implant restorations, crowns, bridges, dentures, and the All-on-4® procedure. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Jude and our staff will cover all your options and help you design the best course of action for repairing your smile.
- Will dental implants work for me? A:
Dental implants are titanium tooth roots that an oral surgeon or periodontist can place in your jaw to secure one or more replacement teeth. In general, most people are good candidates. We can help you determine if implants will work for you. Some people may require bone grafting which is quite common today. After healing for a few months, your bone will be in good shape and capable of supporting implants and replacement teeth in most situations.
- Can You Help End My Headaches? A:
Over his decades of dental experience, Dr. Jude has learned that sometimes the cause of headaches and migraines can be better addressed by a dentist rather than a general practitioner. If you hold tension in your jaw or grind your teeth as you sleep, you might have headaches or develop other dental problems. Let us know at your next appointment, and we’ll do an evaluation. If we find that you are putting strain on your TMJ, we might recommend a night guard or refer you to a specialist.
