Dentures are one solution for replacing missing teeth, but an effective alternative to dentures is NU Teeth Snap™. You can find this solution provided by Scott Cold, DDS, your dentist in Salt Lake City. NU Teeth Snap™ is used with dental implants to replace natural teeth and dentures. Treatment at the dentistry of Scott Cold, DDS, is a comfortable and safe procedure that will allow you to go home satisfied with your new smile.
This treatment is an alternative to dentures, with snap-in dentures being fixed to dental implants. The prosthetic looks and feels like natural teeth and gums, restoring both the appearance and the function of your smile. Because they are attached to dental implants, you can have confidence in using them, without being worried that they will fall out. Dentures, on the other hand, may become loose or uncomfortable. Once the dental implants are in place, you can have the snap-in denture put in place in just one day. NU Teeth Snap™ cannot be upgraded to NU Teeth Now™, but they offer the advantage of allowing you to remove them to clean them as well as clean your gums.
Though your best option in denture alternatives are NU Teeth Now™ and NU Teeth Next™ because they are durable and stable, NU Teeth Snap™ also offers several benefits. Not only can they restore eating and speaking functions in a way that dentures cannot, but they are also useful for attractively disguising lost gum tissue. Using dental implants also helps to stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone recession. Some patients may also prefer to be able to remove their dentures to clean them.
The procedure to have dental implants placed takes a few months from start to finish and will require two appointments to see Dr. Cold in Salt Lake City. During your first visit, after a consultation, the implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone. A short healing period will then be required to allow the implants to fuse completely into the jawbone. Once this process is complete, you will return to our dental office near you in Salt Lake City to have your NU Teeth Snap™ denture fixed to the implants.
