Dentures and Dental Services in Peoria, IL

When you have missing teeth, it can make participating in your favorite activities more difficult. You may find it more difficult to chew or speak, and your facial structure may change. Fortunately, our affordable quality dentures can help you regain your smile and confidence.

What Happens When You Get Dentures?

Getting a new set of dentures in Peoria typically involves several steps. During your consultation, one of our dentists may record measurements or generate an impression of your bite and teeth using a mold. This is used as a guideline for your new dental appliance. If you require extractions, they must be administered before your final denture arrives. If you’ve chosen an implant-supported denture, you will receive your dental implants beforehand. After your final denture is created, your dentist will perform any required adjustments. You’ll then leave our office with a great new smile!

How Many Denture Varieties Are Available through Our Practice?

Everyone’s dental situation is different. Consequently, there are now several varieties of dentures available. Please contact our practice for more details about the different types of affordable quality dentures we offer.

Full or Partial Dentures

If extensive tooth loss is affecting your quality of life, a full denture may be right for you. Consisting of a row of pontic teeth attached to a removable frame or set of implants, full dentures can replace all the damaged teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They are usually constructed using durable materials like metal, porcelain, and acrylic. Full dentures can be removable or permanently placed in the jaw. Our dentists can help you determine which type is best for you.

Much like a bridge, a partial denture is used to replace a section of missing teeth. These devices are recommended for those who have retained multiple healthy teeth. Partials are placed using a metal clasp system, and they’re completely removable for cleaning.

Flexible Partials

Virtually invisible and comfortable to wear, flexible partials are created using natural-looking, pliable materials. They feature a soft base and flexible gum-colored clasps for a discreet wearing experience. Call us now to find out if this convenient denture option is right for you.

Implant-Supported Denture

With an implant-supported denture, you can enjoy the confidence of a secure fit without the use of denture adhesives. These appliances are attached to the jaw using titanium dental implants. While they’re usually recommended for the lower jaw, they can also be used as an upper denture.

How Much Do Dentures Cost on Average?

Because dentures in Peoria are completely customized, the cost of treatment varies. The amount of required dental prepatory work, the style of dentures chosen, and the materials used to create the appliance will determine your final charges. Call us now to explore your options for high-quality dentures.

What Are Dentures and Why Do Patients Use Them?

A denture is a custom-fitted dental device that replaces missing teeth and their surrounding tissues. Dentures are crafted using a row of pontic teeth that are bonded to a durable frame or set of implants. Dentures are available in several different varieties, making them a great option for tooth replacement.

Is a Soft Denture Reline Right for My Dentures?

Sometimes, prolonged denture wear can cause discomfort or sore spots along the gums. A soft reline can help alleviate this pain, reducing the risk of uncomfortable friction. The treatment involves a dentist resurfacing the underside of the appliance with a soft and pliable material. Relines typically stay pliable for up to two years.

How Do All-on-Four Dentures Work?

With an All-on-Four denture, you’ll experience enhanced biting power and a strong, secure hold. This denture procedure involves placing a full row of artificial teeth on four dental implants in the lower jaw. If you’d like to learn more about this effective treatment, please contact our office.
