What Are Dentures?
Removable or implant-supported dentures are an efficient option for addressing missing teeth. These prosthodontic pieces make it simpler to speak and chew and can even improve the appearance of your teeth following tooth loss. Dentist Dr. Brian Saltzman is experienced with removable full and partial dentures, immediate dentures, conventional full dentures, and implant-supported overdentures. At Lincoln Peak Dental, we can help you find out whether removable or implant-supported dentures are right for your dental issues and have them specially designed for an appealing look and comfortable fit.

What Type Of Dentures Are Offered?
Addressing each patient's individual goals is a top priority for us. This is why our Middlebury, VT team offers multiple customized denture solutions for tooth restoration:
- Removable full dentures restore a whole upper or lower arch and are kept in place by the contour of the jawbone or a denture glue.
- Removable partial dentures are similar to removable full dentures but only replace a few missing teeth.
- Implant-supported overdentures take the place of multiple or a whole arch of teeth. These appliances are secured to oral posts in the jaw for elevated dependability.
- Immediate complete dentures are put in as soon as the existing teeth are removed. The fit of these pieces might be modified as the gums recover.
- Conventional full dentures are provided when teeth have previously been removed and the oral cavity is fully recovered.

Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
Suitable candidates for getting dentures would be any adults who are missing many teeth or need to have teeth removed. Dentures serve to enhance your oral function, let you consume healthy foods, and help maintain the contours of your face. These appliances work best if the gums are in good condition and there is a sustainable amount of jawbone to keep them in place. At your consultation with Dr. Saltzman, he will assess your oral health and talk about your potential solutions based on your dental issues, aesthetic goals, and budget. After this, our team will help you determine if dentures are ideal for your dental health and which type would best fit your individual situation.
What Is the Denture Process?
Our team will kick off your denture process by making 3D or molded impressions of your top and/or bottom arches. These impressions are then relayed to a highly advanced dental lab, which will make your personalized dentures. Complete and bridge dentures are comprised of lightweight resin, which could be reinforced by a metal internal frame. Crafted with medical-grade materials, dentures are meant to copy the look of natural teeth and gums. As soon as your dentures are complete and are sent to Lincoln Peak Dental, we will ask you to come back for a fitting consultation. Dr. Saltzman will modify your restorations so they fit securely or fasten them to previously positioned dental posts. Our team will also discuss the best ways to clean your new dentures.
How Do I Care For My Dentures?
It might take some time to get used to carrying out your normal activities after you get your dentures; this is normal and will become more natural as you adjust. If your dentures are slipping, call Lincoln Peak Dental so our team can schedule an adjustment checkup. You will be shown how to look after your dentures by cleaning them using a soft brush following each meal and soaking them in water while you sleep to keep them from drying out. We advise you to come to our office for routine checkups so Dr. Saltzman can check the state of your dentures and your total dental wellness for a number of years in the future.
Are Dentures in Middlebury, VT Covered by Insurance?
Removable or fixed dentures may be paid for to some degree by your dental insurance. Our facility will reach out to your insurance provider to ascertain your exact coverage. From there, we can give you your out-of-pocket costs. Throughout your appointment with Dr. Saltzman, he will personalize your procedure plan so your dentures suit both your goals and budget. To help keep the tooth replacement process affordable, Lincoln Peak Dental accepts many kinds of payments, like low-interest financing.
