Your Salt Lake City Dentists can provide you with dentures
Though many advances have been made in the dentistry field, loss of teeth is still a problem. In the United States, 26% of adults between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-five have lost all of their teeth. Currently, there are a number of options available for people who have lost their teeth. One of the most versatile and affordable is a removable set.
Standard Full Dentures
Standard full Dentures are comprised of a full set of upper and lower teeth. This type uses suction to stay in place. They are made of a pliable material which makes suction easy. However, it is for this reason that standard full sets require more routine visits to Your Salt Lake City Dentists. Being pliable, they are susceptible to shrinkage, thus creating an ill-fitting prosthetic that can result in the atrophy of the jawbone.
Partial Dentures replace only a limited number of teeth, not an entire set; single piece fitting that is supported by the remaining teeth and gums. They are much more secure than standard full sets and are more comfortable.
Cosmetic Dentures are made to look as natural as possible. Unlike standard dentures that use a heat curing process which leads to ill-fitting over time, cosmetic dentures are made from a special acrylic base that eliminates the possibility of shrinking and warping.
Furthermore, some achieve a natural appearance with the use of dental implants. Dental implants are installed in the mouth so that Dentures have something to hold onto. The cosmetic dentures will either rest on or snap onto the implant. What this does is allow it to stay in place without the chance of it moving around, which makes it more comfortable than a standard one.
