At Integrated Dental Arts in Greeley, CO our doctors offer dentures and partial dentures as an option for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral health. Modern dentures offer a natural appearance and are constructed using a lightweight acrylic base tinted to mimic the color variances in natural gum tissue and artificial teeth that simulate the reflectivity of real tooth enamel. Integrated Dental Arts offers cosmetic dentures that will be custom made to suit your natural smile, giving back your daily quality of life. Cosmetic dentures can be secured with either suction and adhesives or dental implants, also known as “all-on-four.” We typically recommend using dental implants since they offer more health and aesthetic benefits.
Tooth Replacement Options
There are several types of dentures to choose from when you need to replace a full arch of teeth. To determine what will best meet your needs, your dentist will make the appropriate recommendation for your dental health needs after a thorough examination. Our full-arch tooth replacement options include:
- Partial Denture: this type of dental appliance is like a dental bridge and replaces several missing teeth. It is held in place with metal clasps that will snap onto health, remaining teeth.
- Full Dentures: replace all of a person’s upper or lower teeth. They are held in place with adhesive and suction.
- Implant Dentures: permanently attaches a hybrid denture to the jaw using as few as four dental implants.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
Our doctors often recommend dental implant secured dentures because of the health benefits they provide, including:
- Secure fit with no slippage
- Implanted posts reduce bone loss in the jaw
- No diet restrictions or need for daily maintenance
A denture that secured to dental implants will offer you the most normal, functioning teeth compared to traditional removable denture. You will have anywhere from four to eight dental implants per arch surgically placed in the jaw bone. The denture will either snap into place or be anchored to the implants with screws. With proper care and maintenance, your implants should last your entire life.
How much do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures will depend on your specific condition, the type of denture and materials used. Your dentist will discuss the various options and costs before selecting a treatment. Integrated Dental Arts accepts most dental insurance, and will submit the necessary paperwork to help you maximize your benefits. In addition, we offer flexible payment options and interest free financing for qualified patients.

What is “All on Four”?
All on four is the name of a popular implant denture procedure, where as few as four dental implants are placed in the jaw to secure a denture. Your dentist will evaluate your condition and place the number of implants that will yield the best results for your needs and goals.
