Dentures and Dental Services in East Peoria, IL

Are missing teeth causing you to feel embarrassed by your smile? Do you suffer from decreased chewing ability or speech problems? If so, it may be time to visit an experienced dentist for dentures in East Peoria.

What Happens During the Dentures Process?

Receiving new dentures is typically a multi-step process. At your first consultation, one of our dentists will examine your smile and determine if you’re a good candidate for denture treatment. If so, impressions and measurements will be taken to provide a template for your future appliance. Your dentist will then administer any necessary preparatory treatment, such as tooth extractions or implant placement for implant-supported devices. Many patients will receive a temporary appliance to use while his or her mouth recovers. Once your final denture arrives, your dentist will make adjustments that ensure a comfortable hold.

How Many Denture Style Options Are There?

Everyone faces unique dental challenges; because of this, dentures in East Peoria are available in several varieties. Some of the options for affordable quality dentures include:

Full or Partial Dentures

People who are missing the majority of their teeth can be great candidates for a full denture. These appliances replace a full row of teeth and the surrounding gum tissue. A full denture can be permanently attached using dental implants. However, many users prefer the traditional method of bonding the denture to the gums. Your dentist will help you decide which type of full denture works best.

Partial dentures can serve as a replacement for multiple teeth, but they’re typically used when the patient still has multiple healthy teeth. Like a bridge, they are affixed to surrounding teeth using metal attachments. Each night, you’ll remove your partial for cleaning.

Flexible Partial

Lightweight and virtually unnoticeable, a flexible partial is a comfortable way to replace several teeth. These appliances feature a soft base and gum-colored clasps for a natural look. No one will know you wear dentures unless you tell them.

Implant-Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture provides a confident, secure hold without the use of sticky adhesive. Instead, these appliances rely on strategically placed dental implants to hold the arch of pontic teeth in place. These dentures can be removable or permanently fixed inside the mouth.

How Much Will Dentures Cost?

Because of the personalized nature of denture treatment, the cost will vary from person to person. The number of preliminary dental procedures, the type of denture which is chosen, and the materials used will determine your final charges. Call us now to find a treatment plan and financial solution that works for you.

What Are Dentures?

Our affordable quality dentures are high-quality, custom-fitted appliances that replace your natural teeth and surrounding tissue. They consist of a row of artificial teeth affixed to a detachable frame or a set of implants. Using a denture can be extremely beneficial for your jaw function and appearance.

Is a Soft Denture Reline Right for Me?

If you’re bothered by discomfort or sore spots caused by dentures, consider a soft reline. This affordable treatment involves the dentist adding a pliable lining to the base of your dentures. Soft relines can greatly improve the comfort of your appliance.

How Do All-on-Four Dentures Work?

The All-on-Four Denture technique involves a dentist attaching a full denture to four implants in the lower jaw. With the added security of implants, you’ll experience great biting power and stability. Get in touch with us now to learn more.
