Dentures are a popular and successful way to replace your missing teeth. If you are missing your teeth due to decay or physical trauma, Dr. Cantwell in Magna, UT offers both implant-supported and traditional dentures so that you can get your full and complete smile back.
Implant-supported dentures are anchored into the mouth by dental implants, which are small titanium rods that are inserted surgically into the jawbone. The set of replacement teeth can then click in and out of the dental implants.
These implants will stimulate the jawbone, preventing future bone loss. Implant-supported dentures will give you a look and feel that you love, and they will never fall out of your mouth unexpectedly. Out of your denture options, these dentures behave most similarly to natural teeth.
Dr. Cantwell has the proper training to place your dental implants, so you do not need to see a specialist to start enjoying implant-supported dentures. You can stay with us for every step of the way while you get your full set of teeth back.
Traditional dentures consist of a pink plastic piece that matches the gums. This piece forms a seal with the gums to keep them inside of your mouth. Attached to this plastic base is a set of porcelain or plastic teeth.
These bright replacement teeth will give you the beautiful, youthful look that you want. After some practice, you will be able to chew and speak more easily with traditional dentures than you were able to with missing teeth.
Traditional dentures are often the right option for those with heavy bone loss or other complications.
