WE HAVE GOOD NEWS! PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19 AND YOUR FUTURE APPOINTMENTS

Dear valued patients and members of the community,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations. You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office and your temperature will be taken.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment and may mean you need to wait in your car until your appointment time.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 206-935-1855 or visit our website at www.westseattlesmileco.com. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,
Drs. Johnston and Johnston and the WSSC Team

Dentures

dentures

Full Denture

Full dentures restore form and function of entire upper and lower teeth. These can either be made with no teeth present or made with unsalvageable teeth in mind. In a few short appointments, we can restore your smile back to how it was utilizing techniques to make a correct bite and natural look. There are endless shapes, sizes, and shades of denture teeth that we have access to, and can even match what you had previously if you bring in an old photo!

 

Partial Denture

Partial dentures restore form and function of upper or lower jaws that have one or more healthy or salvageable teeth present. These types of dentures utilize clasps and retentive features that clip onto your existing teeth. The teeth shape, size, and color will be matched to the teeth remaining in your mouth to give you a natural look. Partial dentures can be made with a metal framework for great stability or out of a flexible material in areas in need of higher esthetics.

 

Implant Supported

Having trouble with a denture not fitting? Implants are great solution to help stabilize the denture in your mouth without the need of a messy denture adhesive. This can take anywhere between 2 to 6 implants, depending on your needs and desires. The implants act as stabilizers and inside of the denture is relined with attachments that precisely fit over the implants, snapping into place. This gives you the ability to clean your denture like normal, but gives you the confidence that your denture will stay in place.
