We enjoy replacing teeth with dentures in Salt Lake City, but learning to wear dentures can be a challenge. It is important to understand that a denture is an artificial replacement. Just like other artificial replacements, some people are successful in learning how to use their new prosthesis and others struggle to adapt.
Think about an artificial leg. We have all seen individuals with artificial limbs learn to run, and even ski. We have also seen or heard of others that struggle to learn to use their artificial leg and instead choose to use a wheelchair.
Similarly, some patients learn to use dentures, and some do not succeed. The studies suggest that as many as 50% of denture wearers do not regularly wear their dentures. How a denture fits and functions are of paramount importance in improving your chances for success with adapting to a new denture. Our dentists in Salt Lake City employ the latest techniques and technology to make your adaption to dentures successful.
There are many ways to fabricate dentures. Some involve as little as two appointments, while others involve as many as ten.
We believe that a commitment to making sure that dentures fit well, and look great requires time and effort. So depending on your case, the number of appointments necessary to fabricate your denture will vary.
We look forward to answering your questions about dentures and helping you regain your smile.
Expertly crafted well fitted dentures are custom designed for you and look exactly like natural teeth
Dentures are one of the most affordable dental options available
Unlike implants, which can take months, dentures can be fitted and inserted in just a couple of weeks.
Dentures can take years off your facial appearance and prevent a weak sagging jaw
Because dentures are removable they are easy to maintain and clean
Nothing feels better than flashing a perfect smile
If the denture does not fit correctly, the denture can rub on the sensitive gums and cause a sore spot. Often, a dentist can adjust that area on the denture. If the bite is incorrect, the denture will move when chewing and cause rubbing or a sore spot. A dentist may be able to adjust the bite, as long as the dentures were made correctly. It may also mean that the dentures may need to be remade. Finally, if your denture is too loose, it will move and cause a sore spot. Relining or refitting the denture might correct a loose denture, or it might need to be remade. At Legacy Dental, we are committed to making your dentures fit comfortably and feel like your natural teeth!
If you find, even with adhesive, you have a difficult time wearing your dentures, then dental implants may be a better option for you.
