How dentures from your dentist in Layton, Utah can help you
It’s easy to think you will never smile again if you are missing teeth. It’s easy to think you may never get to enjoy the foods you love if you don’t have your teeth. The truth is, you can have your smile back, and regain your chewing ability with the right denture. Today’s dentures are natural-looking and fit well. Dr. Steven Christensen at 4 Dental Health in Layton, Utah offers a full line of dental services including many denture options to help you.
If you are trying to go without tooth replacement, it’s time to regain your smile and your enjoyment of food. You can choose from a variety of dentures, depending on how many teeth you need to replace.
If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, you need a full denture, either upper or lower, or both. You can choose from:
A conventional denture, which is created after your tissue has healed completely at around 6 to 8 weeks; these dentures are sturdy and built to last, and you only have to get used to wearing one denture.
An immediate denture, which is placed immediately after your teeth are removed; immediate dentures allow you to leave the office with immediate tooth replacement. A conventional denture is created later after your tissue has healed completely.
An overdenture, which is made to be snapped in place over dental implants or existing tooth roots; implant-supported dentures help to maintain the bone in your jaw and the implants add more stability.
If you need to replace a few teeth, but not an entire arch, you need a partial denture, either upper or lower, or both. Partial denture choices include:
Conventional partial dentures, which are meant as permanent tooth replacement; these appliances are sturdy, fit well, and are built to last.
Transitional partial dentures, which are meant as temporary tooth replacement while you are waiting to get dental implants.
You deserve a great smile, and the right denture can help you achieve it. To find out more about dentures and other restorative and cosmetic dental services, call Dr. Steven Christensen at 4 Dental Health in Layton, Utah today!
