What Are Dentures?

Salt Lake City denturesDentures are custom-made appliances designed to resemble your teeth and gums. They are artificial teeth that rest on a gum-like acrylic base. Dentures function similarly to your natural teeth and can help you chew and speak properly. They can be secured through natural suction, adhesives, or metal clasps, depending on your needs. Additionally, they can be attached to dental implants.

Types of Dentures We Provide

Dr. Young and our staff pride themselves on providing you with dentures that feel comfortable and look great. The types of dentures we recommend differ based on factors like your lifestyle and the number of teeth you are missing. We will provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision on which option is right for you. At Main Street Dental, we partner with trusted local labs to help us craft your perfect dentures using safe and practical materials.

Our office offers many options for dentures in South Salt Lake, including:

Complete Dentures: Complete dentures, sometimes referred to as full dentures, can replace full arches of teeth in the lower or upper jaws. They include artificial teeth on a natural-looking pink base. Complete dentures use suction or adhesive material for a snug fit. You can remove them before sleeping to prevent any potential discomfort.

Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are prosthetic teeth on a gum-like acrylic base, similar to complete dentures. They are an ideal option for replacing portions of your smile where you have lost teeth. Partial dentures typically use metal or acrylic clasps to remain in place for a comfortable feel throughout the day.

Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures connect to the jawbone for a securely supported fit. This form of denture uses six to eight dental implants to help restore your smile. Additionally, they can be removable or permanent, depending on your needs.

Do I Need Dentures?

Dentures help make a difference in countless patients' lives each year. If you are missing teeth, your remaining teeth can degrade more quickly over time as they overcompensate for the missing support. Dentures can help restore your dental function and prevent certain oral health issues caused by missing teeth.

If you have gaps between your teeth, you understand how it can affect everything from speaking to chewing. Dentures can also close natural gaps in your smile and restore the weakened functionality of damaged teeth. Whether you have lost teeth or want to fill the spaces in your smile, dentures can be the perfect solution for you.

Our South Salt Lake Denture Process

From start to finish, the process of getting your dentures takes several weeks and results in restored confidence and better oral health for years to come. The stages include:

  • Your First Appointment: During your first visit, Dr. Young will conduct a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jaws. He will look for signs of tooth decay, infection, and previous dental work that can affect the fit and feel of dentures. Dr. Young will then discuss if any infected or compromised teeth need to be removed before fitting your dentures.
  • Recovery Time: If you have teeth removed, your mouth needs time for your gums to heal fully. Healing times differ from patient to patient depending on factors like the number of teeth removed. Our South Salt Lake denture team will provide detailed instructions to help you recover comfortably and efficiently.
  • Preparing Your Dentures: Dr. Young will take detailed images of your teeth and gums to design accurate molds that help us create your dentures.
  • Denture Customization: Our staff will help you select which shapes and color shades fit your natural teeth and personality.
  • Delivery of Your Dentures: We'll schedule a fitting visit once your dentures are ready. Dr. Young will fit your dentures and make any necessary adjustments to ensure they feel comfortable and secure.

Implant-supported dentures follow a similar process with an additional step. Before we customize or fit your dentures, a specialist will place your dental implants before customizations or fittings.

Denture Replacement & Relining

Relining is a way to adjust your dentures by placing new material at their base for a more snug and comfortable fit. The process will usually take one office visit to complete.

Replacement is when we are unable to reline your existing dentures and instead order a new set. The time it takes to replace dentures depends on if other teeth need to be extracted or if the style of your dentures needs to be adjusted. Whether you are getting your dentures relined or replaced, we will make the process as smooth as possible.
