Are you missing all or most of your teeth on the upper- and/or lower-arch? If so, dentures might be the solution for you to restore your smile and make it easier for you to talk, eat, and enjoy social situations.
At Corner Canyon Family Dental in Draper, UT, we offer an entire range of denture options for our patients. We invite you to come meet with one of our dentists to determine which option is best for you and fits into your budget.
Corner Canyon Family Dental offers traditional dentures as a great option for patients looking for a quick restoration solution. Today’s advanced dental technology allows the dentures to fit well against the gums to avoid irritation. Traditional dentures are not permanent and are removable for cleaning and sleeping. They are made of metal and acrylic and kept in place by a dental adhesive.
Types of Traditional Dentures
Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth and rest against the ridge of the mouth. Once your teeth are removed and the gums are healed, the full dentures can be placed. Full dentures are designed to look natural and function similarly to your natural teeth. They are removable and are held in the mouth by a dental adhesive.
Partial dentures are similar to full traditional dentures, but only replace one or several missing teeth. This option looks natural and restores function. Partial dentures can help keep your other natural teeth from shifting out of place and keep the structure of your mouth working properly.
Immediate dentures are great for patients looking for a quick restoration option. This type of denture is placed directly after tooth extraction and does require patients to return to ensure the dentures fit properly after the bone underneath heals. This option allows patients to leave our office with a new smile right away.
Traditional dentures cost less compared to other tooth replacement options and can get you that restored smile quickly. Replacing your teeth can help keep your mouth and surrounding teeth healthy and prevent deterioration. If you do not replace missing teeth, the surrounding teeth may move out of place and further complications will arise. Let our team at Corner Canyon Family Dental help you choose a tooth replacement option that fits both your needs and your budget.
Corner Canyon Family Dental also offers custom dentures to replace a full arch or partial area of missing teeth. Custom dentures are made to look natural and feel comfortable. This option does cost more than traditional dentures, but is less than implant-supported dentures, making it a great choice for patients that want an option in between traditional and implant-supported dentures. Custom dentures can restore your chewing power and overall function allowing you to speak and eat easily.
Our custom denture process involves a consultation where we will examine your mouth and take detailed digital impressions. The impression process is easy and takes into account the structure of your mouth and jaw alignment. Once your custom dentures are ready, they can be placed and adjusted. Patients may have to return to our office for additional adjustments as they get used to their new dentures. Custom dentures look more realistic and are more durable compared to traditional dentures and with today’s technology, custom dentures are comfortable and do not irritate the mouth or gums.
Implant-supported dentures are a set of dentures that are anchored by dental implants that are placed in the jaw. This option is removable and the denture can be snapped on and off if the patient would like to remove their teeth. Implant-supported removable dentures are great for patients that do not have the bone density required to support fixed dentures and want a removable option. This option is more affordable compared to other options and can give you a restored smile.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Removable Dentures
Implant-supported removable dentures allow patients to have the strong support of dental implants but can also remove their teeth for sleeping or cleaning. There are no dental adhesives needed with this option, and patients do not need to worry about their dentures falling out while they are speaking, eating, or laughing. Implant-supported removable dentures look natural and will give you confidence while smiling around others.
At Corner Canyon Family Dental, we use only the latest technology and can perform the entire implant procedure from start to finish right in our office. This makes the process convenient and patients only have to come to one location for all of their appointments.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Part of our consultation process is to examine your teeth and mouth and determine if you are a good candidate for dentures. Patients should have adequate jaw in the bone to ensure the dental implants have proper support. Almost all patients are good candidates for implant-supported removable dentures, and our doctors can perform bone grafts or sinus lift procedures if necessary to provide the necessary support for our patients.
Corner Canyon Family Dental also offers mini dental implants as an option for patients that want a less invasive type of implant. Mini dental implants can allow patients who have bone loss to be able to have dental implants. Our bone graft and sinus lift procedures can help to build up the area where the required support is needed to allow patients to enjoy the benefits of implant-supported removable dentures.
Permanent implant dentures offer patients the option to have implants placed permanently with artificial teeth in between. The dental implants provide exceptional support and hold the dentures permanently in place. This option can not be removed like with removable dentures and allows patients to eat, speak, and laugh in front of others without worrying about their dentures slipping or falling out. Permanent denture implants do cost more compared to other options but are great for patients that do not want to go through a full mouth of implants.
Our All-on-X process for permanent dentures gives our doctors the ability to place your implant dentures in just one appointment. Our skilled doctors will first place the implants and attach temporary dentures to restore your smile immediately. Once your implants are healed, we require patients to return to our office to have their permanent dentures placed.
Benefits of Permanent Implant Dentures
Permanent implant dentures stay securely in place and do not require any messy adhesives. Patients can enjoy all of the foods they love and caring for them is similar to caring for your natural teeth. The implants can help prevent future bone loss and can strengthen the bone in the jaw.
Choosing a tooth replacement option is a large decision, and our team at Corner Canyon Family Dental can help you choose the option that best fits your needs and budget. Many patients look at both traditional dentures and implant dentures as comparable options. Knowing the differences and pros and cons of each can help you decide which will work best. Let Corner Canyon Dental Care help you take control of your oral health with one of our tooth replacement options.
