High Quality Denture Services in South Jordan, UT
Losing some or even all of your teeth can be disheartening. You can’t eat or speak as well as you used to. The empty spaces in your mouth feel so permanent. Fortunately, many methods exist to restore your smile, and dentures might fit your needs best.
Dr. Jerry F. Maymi & Associates, located in South Jordan, UT, is dedicated to helping our patients feel confident in their appearance and oral health. We offer both full dentures and partial dentures, depending on your needs.
How Dentures Work
When you come to the dentist’s office, your dentist will make a mold of your gums and create a set of perfectly fitting removable dentures. Your dentist may suggest either conventional or immediate dentures: conventional dentures are made after your jaw has completely healed from the tooth-removal process, while immediate dentures are made and placed right after the teeth are removed.
Once you become accustomed to the dentures, you shouldn’t have any difficulty keeping them in place in your mouth or using them to eat. Due to the custom fit, complete dentures form a firm seal on your gums, keeping them still. If they do slip slightly, ask your dentist about dental adhesives.
Partial dentures are a good option for those who still have some natural teeth but have several teeth missing in a row. The denture will hook onto the tooth next to the gap, and then your dentist can either cement it in place or leave it unattached so you can remove it when you want.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures restore your smile and your ability to chew harder food, and they support your face shape. Compared to other options like implants, dentures are less invasive. You won’t need any additional surgery after your teeth are removed. Dentures are also the best option for those with weak or damaged jaws, as dental implants will cause further damage.
Modern dentures are designed to closely resemble natural teeth, so others won’t easily notice that you’re wearing dentures. Because dentures are removable as well, you can take them out whenever you need to and clean them thoroughly. Our dentists will let you know the necessary denture care for the type you decide on.
