Dentures in Lakeview and Chicago

Dentures are typically used to replace your natural teeth, as well as provide support for your lips and cheeks. These appliances are often made from acrylic material and are constructed in one of two ways. When you’re missing a significant number of your teeth, our Lakeview dentist may recommend this treatment as a replacement option to help restore your smile and maintain the structure of the mouth. The good news is that there are several options for dentures and we can determine what works best for you.

A Tooth Replacement Option

There are a vast number of reasons individuals may be missing their teeth. Age is just one factor. For others, tooth decay may be due to genetics or poor dental care. Regardless of the reason, your dentist will go over your dental health and general health and make recommendations based on their findings. They will provide dentures using one of the following techniques:

  • Conventional dentures are created when a patient has lost all of their teeth and after the gums have fully healed.
  • Immediate dentures are used at the time of extraction during the healing process and are placed immediately.
  • Upper dentures typically feature a flesh-colored acrylic base that fully covers the roof of the mouth.
  • Lower dentures come in a horseshoe shape to allow for the tongue.

Tooth Construction

The teeth constructed in the denture are typically created from porcelain, plastic or a combination of the two. They are fabricated to fit around any existing natural teeth. However, complete dentures may also be attached via Dental Implants, giving them a more secure fit. Our dental professional in Lakeview will discuss all of the options available to you, including the costs, so you can determine which one will work best for your needs. We also have financing options, so you can find an affordable tooth replacement options that allows you to smile with pride and get the beautiful look you’ve always wanted.

Over time, it’s important to know dentures in Chicago and Lakeview may need replacement or realignment due to normal wear and tear. As the gum tissue and bones shrink or recede due to the extraction process, the alignment may change. Seeing your dentist on a regular basis is critical to detect changes early and check for disease and other changes.

Many people make the mistake of thinking they won’t need to see their Lakeview dentist once they have dentures. Although they aren’t your natural teeth and aren’t as susceptible to the same decay, dentures can present a new array of problems that need to be monitored. As the structure of your mouth changes, for instance, you may need to be refitted for dentures. Our dental professionals can help you determine when these problems need to be addressed.
