Dentures and partial dentures to restore missing teeth
Dentures are a common way for patients to restore missing teeth. Several types of dentures are available with restorative dentists, such as Drs. Michelle and Glenn Taylor of Taylor Dental Care in Sandy, Utah. Our team focuses on helping patients understand the link between their oral health and the rest of the body and how it can impact their overall health with time. Tooth loss often requires patients to choose restoration before changes to their oral health, such as jawbone loss.

What types of dentures are available at Taylor Dental Care?
Drs. Michelle and Glenn Taylor are pleased to offer various types of dentures for patients to choose from. Below are just a few of the artificial teeth available through their practice:
- Partial dentures: Partial dentures are removable appliances. They are made of a metal and acrylic framework. The patient places the appliance into the mouth, where false teeth slide into place in the gaps left behind. Patients can remove the appliance to clean it and have it adjusted if needed.
- Full dentures – Full dentures are acrylic appliances that replace all the teeth in a dental arch and include false gums. Complete dentures are held in place with natural suction or dental adhesives. They can take some getting used to but are still a popular option for individuals with significant tooth loss.
- Implant-retained dentures – alternatively, patients can use conservative full dentures and several dental implants along the arch to hold them in place. Implant-retained dentures are easy to care for and hold up to allow patients the ability to enjoy all their favorite foods! It is the most desirable option for patients with complete tooth loss.
