Dentures

South Side Chicago Dentist

Dentures are beneficial for those who wish to replace all or most of their teeth. They are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and comfortable fit in your mouth. Dentures may restore your confidence and allow you to smile freely.

Depending on your need, you may benefit from a full or partial denture:

Conventional Full Dentures
Removing all of your teeth may be valuable to your oral health. When your gums are healed, your dentures are placed in your mouth and adjustments may be made. Your dentist strives to make this process as comfortable as possible for you.

Immediate Full Dentures
Immediate dentures are placed instantly after your teeth are removed. These dentures are recommended for those who have suffered from tooth decay, gum disease or dental injuries. Immediate full dentures speeds up the wait time for healing without teeth. Follow-up appointments will have to be made to adjust dentures if needed.

Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth. Partial dentures prevent shifting and erupting of the other teeth.

You should care for your dentures just like you would for your teeth. They should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing can also help prevent the teeth from staining. You will also need to keep regular appointments with your dentist to screen for oral cancer, correct ill-fitting dentures and contribute to your overall health.
