Dentures and Partials

Missing teeth can significantly affect your life and your health. Living without teeth is not an option for most people, so you need to replace them. When you need to replace several teeth, a denture or a partial denture is often the best choice. A full denture replaces all your upper and/or lower teeth. If you still have some of your natural teeth, you can get a partial denture to replace just the ones you are missing.

Losing your teeth is not a natural part of aging, and can lead to significant health consequences, especially for older adults. Fortunately, good hygiene is allowing more people to keep their natural teeth longer. However, you eventually may need dentures.

Benefits of Dentures and Partials

Dentures have developed somewhat of a bad reputation over the years, but the reality for millions of people is that dentures provide the ability to chew, maintain facial volume, smile and talk when your natural teeth are gone. With many new advances in denture technology, they look and feel more natural and comfortable than ever before.

Dentures provide many benefits to those who have lost some or all of their natural teeth. They:

  • Help restore lost facial volume, so you can avoid sunken cheeks
  • Allow you to smile without feeling self-conscious about missing some or all of your teeth
  • Prevent your remaining teeth from shifting around inside your mouth, which can necessitate more extensive dental work in the future
  • Protect and strengthen your gums and jaw

Without teeth, even if you are able to get all your nutrients from liquids, your jawbone and gums will weaken, which can lead to other health consequences.

  • “These guys are awesome! I had a tooth break on a Friday afternoon and they got me in right away! I’ve since seen 3 different dentists there and have no complaints. The office staff is incredible and friendly. I still am not a huge fan of going to the dentist, but this office has really helped alleviate my fears and dental anxiety. I would recommend them to anyone.”

  • I’ve known Dr. Chris for over 10 years, and my experience with him has been awesome. I got Invisalign with him to straighten my teeth, and it was incredible to have straight teeth! It was great, too, that I was an adult and I didn’t have to walk around with braces like a teenage weirdo. Chris and YFD are excellent, I highly recommend them.

  • I took both my 8 year old and 3 year old daughters there, and it was great experience from beginning to end. It was the first time for my 3 year old (don’t judge me ?) Jacqueline was great at making it a fun experience for her. Jessica helped take care of my 8 year old who had some infection on a tooth she had worked on a while ago. And the dentist was great too. Overall, everyone was friendly, everything was clean, and at the end I had a credit on my account that I didn’t know was there which was an added bonus.

  • I love young family dental! Their assistants are great and make me feel comfortable which is important to me because I don’t like going to the dentist. The dentists are very informative and make me feel at ease as well. They take extra time and care to make sure you fully understand what is being done and what needs to be done. If you need a check up, a cleaning, or work done stop or call young family in Riverton Utah, they are great!!
