Dentures Chicago, IL

Dentures Chicago, ILPatients that are missing all or some of their teeth may want to consider dentures as a restoration option. Dentures are a set of removable prosthetic teeth, custom-made to fit the needs of each patient. At Medhat Dental Excellence and Artistic Smiles Family Dental Care, we offer complete and partial dentures, to help repair esthetics, and give you a functional set of replacement teeth. We believe dentures can improve your life, and give you a renewed sense of confidence!

Reasons for Dentures

Dentures are an economical alternative to other restoration procedures. In today’s dental market, materials exist that make dentures look more natural than ever before. This means we can give you an affordable and authentic-looking smile while restoring your ability to chew.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are used for patients who have lost an entire arch of teeth. These dentures include a row of porcelain teeth that are situated in a flesh-colored acrylic base. For your upper arch, this base covers the gums and roof of your mouth. This provides a sturdy foundation, allowing the replacement teeth to rest firmly. For your lower arch, the base is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.

Before you are fitted with complete dentures, Dr. Medhat will remove any remaining teeth. If this is the case, it may take several months for your gums and jawbone to adjust. Afterwards, an impression will be taken of your gums and sent to a dental laboratory. There they will use the impression to fabricate your permanent denture. This can take several weeks, and you may receive a temporary denture. Once your complete denture is ready, we will make final adjustments to achieve the perfect fit.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used for patients that are missing just a few teeth. Often, they allow us to fill the gap without reshaping your adjacent teeth. The denture is attached using metal clasps that grip your surrounding teeth. These clasps are usually visible, which may cause esthetic issues. In some cases, we may use precision attachments that are less noticeable. Partial dentures are a removable alternative to fixed dental bridges, which require a much more invasive procedure.

Caring for Dentures

Over time, your dentures will need to be repaired, realigned, and replaced after normal wear. However, we have several tips to help expand the life of your dentures:
•  Do not let your dentures dry out. This can cause them to become brittle or easily damaged. When they are not being worn, place them in room temperature water or denture cleaner solution. Never use hot water, as it could cause them to warp.
•  Make sure to brush your dentures daily. This will remove food debris, plaque, and help keep them white.
•  Make sure to brush your tongue, gums, and palate every morning. This helps to remove plaque, stimulate circulation, and avoid infection.
•  When you handle your dentures, exercise caution. Dentures are delicate enough to break if dropped.
•  Avoid hard-to-eat foods and bad chewing habits.
•  If your denture breaks, loosens, cracks, or chips, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
