Smile Big Dental Specialists provides several kinds of dentures to Oakbrook Terrace, IL customers. We have years of experience determining which type of denture is best for our patients. Dentures do more than ease embarrassment about missing teeth. Teeth are important because they provide a stabilizing force within your mouth. Without them, the other teeth can change position, which can cause additional problems. A set of dentures is the perfect solution.
Complete Dentures: Permanent Solutions to Missing Teeth
Complete dentures are meant for those without any teeth. In some cases, we make them for patients when we have to remove any remaining teeth. We make conventional dentures in advance by taking an impression of your mouth. As a result, we can place the dentures during the same appointment as when we remove the teeth – eliminating any period you might spend without teeth. However, they require more adjustments than conventional dentures, meaning you can expect more visits to our office.
Partial Dentures: Removable Dentures for Missing Teeth
Removable partial dentures are perfect for those who still have many teeth but are missing enough that implants would be a pricey and unfeasible fix. Partial dentures solve the problem of filling in a smile without invasive dental implants in multiple spots in the mouth. We attach false teeth to a gum-colored base and connect it to a metal framework. Partial dentures are removable by nature and need special care to remain clean and effective.
Dental Implants as an Alternative to Dentures
Smile Big Dental Specialists has provided superior dental services to Oakbrook Terrace, IL, since 1994. Our team has years of experience in all fields of dentistry, including dentures. But dentures aren’t the only solution to missing teeth: Dental implants are as strong as dentures and serve the same purpose. We can help you select the best option for your health and situation.
