Palisades Dental Is Offering Dentures As Part Of Its Cosmetic Dentistry Services In American Fork, Utah

Palisades Dental, a dental clinic in American Fork, Utah, is offering cosmetic dentistry services. The clinic is also serving the nearby areas of Lehi, Highland, Cedar Hills, Pleasant Grove, Vineyard, and Orem. The clinic is urging patients to find out whether they need or are the right fit for dentures.

Dentures are replacement teeth that are removable. They are the most cost-effective way to correct missing teeth. They can also fix issues such as missing mouth tissue. They are available in two types - complete and partial. As the name suggests, complete dentures replace the entire set of teeth. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain and they make up for the rest. Dentures are a great solution for the elderly who want to make up for their missing teeth without going for more expensive procedures such as dental implants.

Complete dentures are of two types - conventional and immediate. To install conventional dentures, the teeth that remain are first removed and the mouth is given time to heal. This healing process can last anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks. Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are ready to be placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed. This is an advantage as it skips the waiting period with conventional dentures. Partial dentures are replacement teeth attached to a plastic base. The base is colored pink to match the color of the gums. There is sometimes a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Another advantage of partial dentures is that they prevent the other natural teeth from moving.

Dentures can also be removable or permanent. Fixed dentures are rows of prosthetic teeth connected to a base that is held in position by dental implants. Permanent dentures solve the problem of teeth slipping and sliding out of the mouth while talking, eating, chewing, and smiling. Permanent denture installation is much more involved and consists of scans of the jawbone to determine where exactly to place the dental implants. They also need healing time as they need time to fuse to the jawbone.

Removable partial dentures cost anywhere from $300 to $500. Removable complete denture prices can be anywhere from $1500 to $1800 dollars depending on the region and the doctor. There are also other considerations. Low-cost dentures are made of lower-quality materials. Premium dentures are heat-cured and look more natural. Not all dental insurance plans cover dentures and most have spending caps for the year. It is recommended to ask the insurance provider about the amount of coverage.

There is a little learning curve when one starts using new dentures. It is recommended to take it slow while chewing food for the first few weeks. A good idea is to avoid foods that are hard or sticky. There can even be a few problems related to speech as there can be some slurring. That discomfort will soon vanish as the body gets used to the dentures. It is recommended to take dentures off before bed as it allows the gums to rest. In some conditions such as dry mouth, or those that take cold medications, or those with disabilities, denture adhesive is recommended for added stability.

A spokesperson for the clinic, Dr. Jeff Youngquist, says, “We have been in business for a long time. We have helped countless patients eat, talk, and smile better.
