Dentures and Dental Services in Peoria, IL

The Important Role of Dentures

Anyone who has lost one of more natural teeth knows how it can alter your self-esteem and make life more difficult. Dentures provide a way of replacing missing teeth and enabling you to speak clearly, eat your favorite foods again and smile without hesitation. Consisting of one or more artificial teeth connected to a custom frame, a quality set of dentures can restore form and function for many years.

Understanding the Process of Dentures

The process of getting new dentures involves a few steps, which may vary among denture types and the condition of your mouth. Here’s a quick guide to the procedure:

  • A careful evaluation of your oral health is conducted and diseased teeth are removed.
  • Your dentist will obtain measurements and make impressions of your remaining natural teeth.
  • If applicable, the dental implant surgery process is started.
  • Each custom denture is crafted.
  • Your dentist will ensure a proper fit and overall comfort by making any needed adjustments.

Types of Available Dentures

When it comes to dentures, one size never fits all. Here are a few of the different denture types that your dentist may offer:

Full and Partial

A complete or full denture replaces every tooth in your mouth. It can be removable or permanently fixed onto a dental implant. Partials are usually removable; they replace one or several missing teeth by attaching to adjacent healthy teeth.

Flexible Partial

Unlike traditional acrylic partials, a flexible partial is made of soft, bendable material that provides more comfort and looks and feels realistic.

Implant-Supported

Traditional appliances are worn atop your gums. Implant-supported ones are attached to dental implants but are still removable for cleaning. An implant-supported denture is ideal for replacing teeth in the lower arch.

Factors Affecting Dentures Cost

It’s difficult to provide a general price estimate without a comprehensive treatment plan. Factors that affect the cost of dental appliances include denture type and material, insurance coverage and treatments required to prepare your mouth for a new dental appliance. Quality, affordable dentures won’t put a strain on your budget. Our dentists can help you find the right denture solution for your dental and financial needs. Contact us now to learn more about dentures in Peoria.

Is a Soft Reline for Dentures Right for You?

In many cases, denture-related pain and mouth sores can be alleviated by a soft denture reline, which places a thick coating of soft, cushiony material on the inner surface of your dental appliance. If you’re struggling with uncomfortable denture wear, ask your dentist about the value of relining.

How Do All on Four Dentures Work?

All on four dentures are removable full dentures that fit onto a set of four implants in each arch. The innovative design provides the convenience of a fixed denture and a stronger, more natural biting capability.

If you’re ready to dazzle the world with a new smile, our dentists can help you find the best dentures in Peoria. Give us a call today to learn more.
