These are often known as dentures, and can replace a full arch of teeth (complete dentures), or a number of individual or grouped tooth spaces (partial dentures).
e believe that everybody should have a smile that they are proud of, and that means we're dedicated to helping you find the dental solution that fits your unique needs.
As the #1 Dentist in Washington, PA, Elizabeth Wakim and her dedicated team can help you select from between partials, flexi-partials, full dentures, or temporary dentures.
If you are missing some (but not all) of your teeth, partial dentures can be used to fill in the gaps in your smile. Partial dentures are kept in position with plates or clips. By comparison, full dentures are designed to accommodate patients who are missing all of their teeth. Full dentures are typically held in place with adhesives, but they can also be secured with dental implant posts for improved comfort and fit.
Yes! Our office is happy to accommodate patients who need temporary dentures while they are waiting for another procedure, like dental implants. Temporary dentures are crafted with the same care and attention that our permanent dentures receive, so you can be sure that your temporary dentures will be an excellent and comfortable fit.
Adjusting to dentures can take some time, but most patients adjust within about 2 weeks. Typically, patients receiving partial dentures adjust to their dentures more quickly than patients with full dentures. To speed up the adjustment process, it's important to wear your dentures as directed. Many patients find that reading out loud helps them get used to the feeling of wearing dentures.

State of the art office with a highly educated professional team. Everyone is so understanding and takes the time to make you comfortable. This is the office for you if you're not a fan of the dentist, you'll quickly forget that you're at a doctors office! It's so fun and relaxing! Highly recommend!
As an older patient and have had other dentists for years. Dr. Wakim and her staff have exceeded any experience I've had previously. Very supportive of the care and treatment that I'm in need of, with no pressure. I also have several family members who are her patients. Todays experience surprised me, I was to have a crown replacement and was accommodated with 2 other procedures, wow.
For someone who anxiety about dental work, this has been an amazing place for me. I had considered sedation dentistry, but I’m glad I came here instead. Dr. Wakim and the whole staff are so great!
Dr. Liza is an exceptional dentist! She has repaired my front tooth and it is as good as the original! I love the comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff. Can't wait to go back to the dentist!
Dr. Wakim and her staff are fantastic!!! I had a tooth issue right before I was to leave on vacation and was beyond miserable. Dr. Wakim took care of me last minute on a holiday weekend and I was able to enjoy my vacation pain free. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful Dentist that cares about her patients. Thank you Dr. Wakim!!
