Are Dentures a Good Option?

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.

Why is Legacy Dental Uniquely Qualified to Place Dentures?

When choosing a provider to place your dentures, there are several important factors to consider. Given the significance of this procedure to both the functionality of your bite and the aesthetics of your smile, you’ll want to ensure you find the right fit for your situation. As part of that process, consider the following:

If you need teeth removed before placing your new denture, we can help with both  tooth removal and the fabrication of the denture.
We offer implant retained and supported solutions as well, so we can discuss other options that you may want to consider.
Since we offer implant supported solutions, we can help with a traditional denture now, and then convert that denture into an implant supported solution in the future.
By using specialized software, we can help guide tooth selection to make sure your smile looks natural or perfect, or a desired combination of the two.
Our doctors have helped hundreds of patients with dentures, and are well versed in helping people make the transition from hopeless teeth to a new denture.
If you have an existing denture that you like, but it needs to be refreshed or remade, we can easily duplicate the best aspects of your denture while improving upon those things that can be improved by using 3D technologies like scanning and printing.
Using 3D technologies, we can easily store a copy of your denture. So, if it were to become lost or broken, we can then easily make a replacement the same day. Some patients even choose to have a replacement made from the start so that they have a back-up readily available.

Denture Treatment Process

1
Legacy Dental will do a thorough exam to see if you are a candidate for dentures. Many patients believe that dentures are their only option. However, these patients have more choices than they think.
2
Before getting dentures, it is essential to evaluate the bone and the gums where the denture will rest. If there are bumps, ridges, swollen or irritated tissue, those areas must be corrected to allow the denture to fit well.
3
Once it is decided that dentures are indeed the best option, impressions or molds will be made. A second appointment is sometimes necessary to take a second impression with a custom fabricated tray.
4
Following an accurate impression, an appointment is made to record the bite, choose the color or shade of the teeth, and discuss the tooth shape and position. Looking at photographs together with your Salt Lake City dentist can help in restoring your smile to a time when you were proud of your smile.
5
A third appointment is then made to try-on the denture. At this stage, the denture is made from a wax material. This allows for changes to the position of the teeth and the bite. Taking this step helps to make sure that everything done in the second step was correct. If not, additional appointments for try-on will be made until you are happy with the appearance and fit.

Following an accurate impression, an appointment is made to record the bite, choose the color or shade of the teeth, and discuss the tooth shape and position. Looking at photographs together with your Salt Lake City dentist can help in restoring your smile to a time when you were proud of your smile.
7
Finally we generally see our denture patients every week until everything is fitting and feeling correct. This can take 1-6 more visits and is included in the fees for the fabrication of the denture.

Here are our top FAQs about dentures in Salt Lake City.

Usually, the process to make dentures takes about two to three weeks. We can complete the process more quickly if needed and have even made dentures in just 24 hours. This RUSH service carries an additional fee. A temporary partial denture (sometimes called a flipper) that replaces one or a few teeth can usually be made the same day or in 24 hours.

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!

Depending on the shape of your bone and gums, tongue, and cheeks you may or may not need to use a denture adhesive. Even a well-fitting denture can sometimes be more comfortable to wear with adhesive, especially, when you are first getting used to your new 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.

If a person takes good care of their denture, it should last for at least five years. Most times dentures will last many years longer than that. Often, dentures can be relined or refitted, and their life extended. To make sure your denture lasts as long as possible, you should:

  • Have an exam each year to check your bone and gums, bite, and the denture.
  • Don’t ever adjust your denture yourself.
  • Be careful not to drop your dentures especially in the sink. The hard porcelain of the sink can chip or break your dentures.
  • Clean your dentures following our recommendations. Using harsh chemicals or abrasives will shorten the life of your dentures.
  • Keep your dentures away from pets. Dogs, especially, love to use dentures as chew toys.

Dentures can be used in so many different ways so giving an accurate cost is difficult. There are many payment options available to make dentures fit your budget.

Been going to Dr John Campbell for 15+ years. I won’t see anyone else. Every visit has been with as much care and concern as the my first visit. He is thorough, super professional, and won’t settle for anything less than perfection. Thank you Dr Campbell!

Compared to my previous (money hungry) dentist, this place is like a golden palace of greatness! Everyone is friendly and accommodating, and they make sure you're comfortable throughout your visit whether it's a routine cleaning or a crown replacement (I had both). I definitely recommend Legacy Dental! Thank you!
