Restore Your Smile With Dentures
You don’t have to live with missing pieces of your smile. At Arizona Dental Heights, Dr. Shaylar Hatch can fit you with customized dentures, perfect for restoring your smile. With dentures, you’ll be able to speak, eat, and live comfortably and confidently again.
Take a look at the various dentures we offer.
Types of Dentures
Designed to restore a small number of missing teeth, partial dentures are held in place using a hidden metal clasp. They can be removed for easy cleaning.
If you’re missing a full arch of teeth, we can fit you with full dentures. These dentures will restore your ability to speak, eat, and smile. Full dentures are also removable for easy cleaning.
Overdentures are another full-arch restoration option, for people who are missing a large part of their smile. Overdentures are placed over dental implants, and can be removed at night for cleaning. They still have the security of dental implants, being firmly anchored in your jaw.
Dr. Hatch provides dental implant-supported dentures, a permanent solution to tooth loss. Instead of being held in place by an adhesive, dental implants are placed into your jaw to provide extra stability. As supposed to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures aren’t removable, and can be cleaned just like your natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing.
Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures are a great replacement option for patients who’ve lost teeth for any number of reasons, such as tooth decay, dental trauma, or gum disease. Dr. Hatch will be happy to sit with you and discuss all your options to restore your teeth and give you a smile to feel great about.
Our attractive, natural-looking dentures are sure to return confidence and function to your smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
My current pair of dentures don’t fit well, or are loose. What are my options?
If your current pair of dentures don’t fit well or are loose, this can leave you feeling miserable. You’ve probably experienced a few of the following:
- Difficulty chewing certain foods
- Irritated gums
- Difficulty speaking
If you’re having trouble with your dentures, Dr. Hatch can help by either adjusting your dentures or recommending a new set. If you’re interested in a more permanent solution, we may suggest All-on-4 dental implants, also known as implant-retained dentures.
With the help of modern technology, we can strategically place 4 implants in your mouth and secure an entire arch of dentures. For more information, schedule a consultation with Dr. Hatch by calling (480) 525-6000.
During the consultation, Dr. Hatch will review your oral health and provide you with a customized treatment plan that fit s your needs.
What do I do when my dentures break?
If your dentures break, don’t try to repair them yourself. Call our Mesa office at (480) 525-6000 to schedule an appointment.
Be sure to explain to our team what has happened with your denture piece so we can assure we provide you with accurate care when you come in. When your appointment is scheduled, we’ll work to either fix or completely replace your broken dentures.
Does my dental insurance cover my dentures?
Most dental insurances cover a good portion of your dentures treatment, but you may need to discuss this with your provider beforehand. Depending on your insurance policy they may cover up to half of the cost or less.
Arizona Dental Heights works with a wide range of providers, and we also offer financing for your treatment. You can learn more about our payment options to see if they can help you.
What are dentures made of?
Dentures can be made of a variety of materials, but here at Arizona Dental Heights, ours are made of acrylic resin or porcelain with a metal base.
When we craft your dentures, we ensure they match the natural appearance of your teeth and gums so you can smile with confidence again.
How do I clean my dentures?
Removable dentures should be taken off every night and soaked overnight to avoid drying out. They should be brushed with a soft-bristle toothbrush and a stain cleanser. Dr. Hatch can recommend solutions for cleaning during your appointment.
Implant-supported dentures are maintained just like your natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. They’re more convenient than removable dentures because they don’t require adhesive. Learn more about this option on our dental implants page.
