Dentures: An Ideal Replacement for Missing Teeth

After tooth loss, your smile just isn’t the same. It’s also harder to speak correctly or even to chew your food. Fortunately, dentures can replace the function of your lost teeth and restore your smile. A denture is made up of one or more artificial teeth attached to a frame that is custom-made to fit your mouth. Your denture set can restore functionality and support your facial bone structure. If you take care of them, your replacement teeth can last for years.

What to Expect When Getting Dentures

When you are being fitted for dental appliances, your dentist will obtain impressions of your teeth; these help to create a denture that fits comfortably and feels natural. If you have diseased teeth that need to be pulled, your dentist will remove them. If you’re getting implant dentures, the implant procedure will be carried out before your denture is made. After your dentures are made, several adjustments may be needed to fine tune them to perfection.

Available Denture Types

After evaluating your unique needs, your dentist may offer several options for replacing your teeth. The following types of dentures are common and popular:

Full and Partial

Your denture set may be full or partial and fixed or removable. A full denture set replaces both upper and lower teeth. If you’re getting a fixed denture, it will be anchored by implants. Partials can replace individual teeth that were located between healthy ones. A partial is clipped over the adjacent teeth and can be removed when necessary.

Flexible Partial

Unlike a rigid partial with metal clasps, a flexible partial is crafted from a pliable, soft material that looks and feels more natural.

Implant-Supported

A removable denture can be anchored to dental implants that are surgically placed into your jawbone. This type of implant denture is most suitable for replacing your lower teeth.

The Cost of Dentures

The price of your dentures depends on the type of denture that you choose, the cost of materials used to make your denture and your insurance coverage. Dentures cost more when complex procedures such as surgical implants are required. Our skilled dentists can help you get the high-quality affordable quality dentures that you need. Call today to schedule a consultation or learn more about getting dentures in East Peoria.

Can a Soft Denture Reline Make My Dentures Better?

You may want to consider a soft denture reline if your denture frequently causes irritation, mouth sores or discomfort. The relining procedure involves placing a thick layer of soft, pliable material over the hard acrylic form of your denture. A soft reline can last for up to two years.

Understanding All on Four Dentures

All on four dentures are a great way to get the convenience of a fixed denture along with a stronger bite. The technique uses four dental implants on each arch. Your denture snaps onto them firmly, which eliminates sliding and improves your mouth control.
