Summerlin and Las Vegas Area


Dentures…many people have outdated ideas about them, and when they hear that they may be a candidate for them might rule them out without giving it a lot of thought. This is unfortunate because they are a very reliable form of restorative dentistry. As a preferred dentist in Summerlin and Las Vegas Area, Wagner Dentistry wants to be sure that all of our patients have any misconceptions about dentures cleared up in order to help them make the best decisions.

  1. Dentures are not impossible to eat or speak. One of the most common concerns and misconceptions we hear from patients in our Summerlin and Las Vegas Area, NV office is that they don’t want dentures because they are going to find it too hard to speak or eat like normal while wearing them. In reality, there are very few food restrictions and dentures fit so well now that you can do anything without a worry.
  2. Dentures are not obvious and strange looking. Certainly in decades past it might have been painfully easy to spot someone sporting dentures, but today it is impossible to tell when someone is wearing them. They are made to match your bone structure, bite, and face. They do not slip or click, and even if you feel they are not a perfect fit upon arrival from the dental lab, we immediately adjust them in the office to ensure the perfect fit.
  3.  Dentures are not wildly expensive. Again, this is one of those classic misconceptions about dentures and it is an outdated idea. They are actually one of the more affordable options and you have to consider them an investment in long-term oral health. They are something provided by a restorative dentist, and this means they allow you to regain the fullest use of your mouth, and always at a reasonable price over the long term.
  4. Dentures do not mean the end of oral hygiene. This is the biggest of the misconceptions about dentures, and untrue. You need to brush and take care of the gums and remaining teeth in addition to having regular checkups.


Hopefully this has cleared up some of your misunderstandings of dentures and their many benefits. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, they are a wonderful solution. If you still have some questions about common misconceptions about dentures, feel free to give us a call at our Summerlin and Las Vegas Area, NV office at 702-877-2222.
