At 3rd South Dental, we want our patients to feel confident with their smiles. That is why we offer a variety of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. No matter what kind of treatment you are looking for, we guarantee that we have something for you. One of our most popular restoration options for those with missing teeth is dentures! Dentures are artificial teeth and gums created especially for your mouth to replace teeth you may have lost or needed removing. It is a big oral health benefit for every customer that a dental denture.
See us today about dentures if you are in Salt Lake City, Utah! We promise you won't be disappointed! There are two types of dentures, namely partial and full dentures.
We use partial dentures when only a few teeth are missing. They sit on the gum line and fasten to the nearby natural teeth. We make partial dentures look entirely natural, and they allow you to speak and eat properly once again. Most partial dentures are removable, but there are instances when they can be permanent in your mouth. Our dentist can also help you decide what would be better for you. We make partial dentures to your exact specifications, measurements, and desired color. No one will be able to tell you are wearing dentures!
Complete dentures replace all your natural teeth and are held in place by suction or an adhesive. Full dentures are also removable. We make them out of artificial teeth and arches that drastically help improve your oral health. They can give you a facelift, allow you to return to eating most of your favorite foods, and speak normally once again. There are also fixed or implant-supported dentures attached to dental implants that we attach to a patient's jaw bone. This is a permanent option that should be cared for with the same intensity as traditional dentures. The fit is comfortable, as everything is customized!
Like natural teeth, bacteria and plaque can build up on artificial teeth. If this happens, it can cause several oral issues. That is why it is so important they be removed and washed with a mild soap or denture cleaner and a soft toothbrush every day.
To preserve your dentures, submerge them in a glass of warm water overnight to give your gums a rest and to make sure the dentures do not dry out and become misshapen. Taking care of your dentures will make them last longer. If you have any specific questions about how to clean your dentures, give us a call!
