Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing permanent teeth, giving you the aesthetically pleasing smile that you deserve. Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers various forms of dentures to match your personalized needs. 

What are the benefits of dentures?

Some of the benefits you can expect after receiving dentures at Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry include:

  • Natural-looking teeth
  • No more missing teeth
  • Full set of gorgeous teeth
  • Beautiful smile
  • Reduced risk of adjacent teeth shifting
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Strong, long-lasting results
  • More self-confidence

Dentures last a long time when cared for properly. They look, function, and feel just like natural teeth. 

What are the different types of dentures?

Some of the different types of dentures available at Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry include:

  • Overdentures - dentures that fit over the top of remaining natural teeth
  • Traditional dentures - removable dentures you can take out of your mouth
  • Fixed, implant-supported dentures - permanent dentures that attach to metal implants
  • Immediate dentures - dentures that you receive right after tooth extraction
  • Partial dentures - dentures that replace some upper or lower natural teeth
  • Full dentures - dentures that replace all of your natural teeth

You may first need tooth extraction before receiving dentures if you have teeth that are severely damaged or decaying.

Are dentures right for me?

The Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry team lets you know if you’re a candidate for dentures, and which are best, after examining your teeth and gums. They also take digital dental X-rays if necessary and review your oral health history, lifestyle, and desired outcome before personalizing your dental treatment plan. 

What should I expect when getting dentures?

What you can expect when getting dentures depends on the type that you receive — you might first need a tooth extraction or dental implant placement. When getting implants put in your mouth, your dentist numbs the treatment area and offers you a sedative. They insert metal tooth roots directly into your jawbone and allow the affected tissues to heal.

Your dental provider digitally scans your mouth, which allows a dental lab to develop custom-fitted fixed or removable dentures that fit perfectly. When your new teeth are ready, your dentist permanently secures them in place or ensures removable dentures fit properly. 

There’s no downtime after getting your new teeth, but if you have immediate dentures placed after tooth extraction, you will likely experience some soreness during the healing process. 

How can I take good care of my dentures?

Take good care of your new dentures to reduce the risk of damaging them. Clean your dentures and brush your gums and mouth after meals, and don’t chew on hard objects like ice. See the Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry experts every six months for exams and dental cleanings. Use removable denture cleaning products as directed by your dentist.
