Tooth loss can negatively compromise your oral health and detract from the appearance of your smile. For patients struggling with tooth loss and extensive tooth decay, the long-trusted solution is dentures, a set of artificial teeth that replace a full dental arch (your upper or lower set of teeth). The doctors at Stubbs Dental offer high-quality traditional and implant-supported dentures at our Bountiful UT and Layton, UT, practices. Our dentures are made of the finest materials for a comfortable fit and natural look.
Know Your Denture Options
There are many reasons patients find themselves in need of dentures. Whether it is dental decay, periodontal disease, or dental trauma, to accommodate all of our patients’ tooth replacement needs, we are proud to offer traditional and All-on-4® denture options to rejuvenate the functionality and look of your smile.
Traditional Dentures: Full-arch traditional dentures are for patients who are missing all of their teeth, or will have teeth removed resulting in a missing dental arch. This form of tooth replacement is customized for each patient, using a mold of the gums to ensure a snug fit for comfortable, all-day wear. Traditional dentures stay in place with an adhesive. Traditional dentures are removable and will need to be taken out each day to be cleaned.
Snap-On Dentures: Snap-on dentures provide patients with an option that serves as a middle ground between traditional implants and All-on-4. This treatment utilizes mini dental implants to which the dentures can snap onto the top. With this option, patients are able to remove their dentures as often as they like while enjoying secure placement when they are snapped onto the implants.
Implant-supported dentures, such as All-on-4®, are quickly becoming the preferred tooth-replacement solution.
All-on-4® Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are quickly becoming the preferred tooth-replacement solution. This option involves attaching the denture to dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone. Implants provide a level of stability and functionality for dentures that cannot be matched. Patients can be completely confident that their teeth will not slip out of place, and that their dentures will feel and look lifelike. Additionally, implant-supported dentures stimulate the jawbone and prevent its disintegration, which will eventually occur when a tooth root is missing for too long. The revolutionary All-on-4® technique also means that you will need fewer implants to secure your dentures, equating to faster healing times and immediate placement of the denture to the implant.
