How dentures work

There are three types of dentures to choose from: a conventional full denture, an immediate full denture, or a partial denture. Each is custom-made at our dental office using impressions taken of your mouth. Dr. Claggett and the rest of our team will work with you in finding the right type.

Let’s consider full dentures for a moment. First, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. Keep in mind that the base of the upper denture covers the roof of your mouth, while the base of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe.

How long dentures should last

Regardless of which denture you choose, just know it will need to be relined, remade, or rebased as a result of normal wear. Plus, your mouth naturally changes with aging. Such changes may cause your dentures to loosen, making chewing more of a challenge and even irritating your gums.

The BeaverBrooke staff emphasizes to patients the importance of seeing a dentist twice a year for routine cleanings. However, if you do opt for dentures, it’s even more important to see a dentist regularly.

Signs You May Need Dentures

Visiting your Sandy family dentist is crucial to taking care of your oral health needs, and here at BeaverBrooke Dental, we will help extend the life of your teeth by correcting problems that arise. When oral health issues are small, they are more easily corrected, but if visiting the dentist every six months is not a regular part of your health routine or you haven’t been able to make an appointment for some reason, cavities and periodontal problems can take hold and teeth may need to be extracted. Tooth extraction can quickly snowball into the need for dentures.

You may also need dentures if you have gaps between your teeth or your teeth are loose and shifting. Loose teeth are often a sign of advanced gum disease and these teeth may have to be extracted — leading to the need for dentures.

Another sign that you may need dentures is struggling with eating certain types of food. If you are having challenges eating food, this can also lead to indigestion problems, as larger pieces of food that haven’t been properly chewed can be hard on your digestive system. A good family dentist, like those here at BeaverBrooke Dental in Sandy, can help determine if problem teeth are the root cause and whether dentures can help. Schedule an appointment today.

How to care for your dentures

Here are a few tips worth considering:

Keep your dentures from drying out – Ask Dr. Claggett about a denture cleanser soaking solution. Plain water will also suffice.

Brush your dentures – Seriously. By brushing your dentures daily, you will remove food and dental plaque. Maintaining good oral hygiene also prevents dentures from becoming stained.

Consult your dentist – It’s worth mentioning again. On occasion, your dentures may break, chip, crack, or become loose. You’re only asking for more trouble if you try to adjust them yourself.

BeaverBrooke Dental in Sandy strives to provide your winning smile.
Together, we will determine if dentures would make sense for you.
