Complete & Partial Dentures in Cary, IL
If you've lost your natural teeth, whether from tooth decay or injury, you may have considered complete or partial dentures in Cary, IL. A denture is a removable appliance replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and enhance your smile. Dentures not only help to alleviate the discomfort that comes with missing teeth, but they can also improve your overall health by making it easier to eat and speak.
Different Types of Complete Dentures
Complete dentures may be either “conventional” or “immediate”. Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have already been removed and the gum tissue is healed. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process.
If you have missing teeth, dentures can be the ideal solution to help you get back your functional teeth, as well as restore the aesthetics of your mouth. First and foremost, it's important to undergo a thorough dental examination to check your overall dental health. We will then work on fitting you for your dentures. Molds will be made to ensure you have the perfect fit once you are wearing your dentures. We will send these molds to the lab so your dentures can be custom created and then fitted right in our office.
We Help You Learn
Wearing dentures is considerably different than managing your natural teeth. Whether you have partial dentures to replace some of your teeth or you require full dentures, it's important to make sure you get the guidance you need to care for them and wear them properly. When you come to your appointment for your final fitting, we will make sure you know exactly how to fit them in and which products you will need to purchase and use with the dentures. In addition, we will teach you how to properly clean them. Brushing dentures with your toothbrush and regular toothpaste are more likely to damage them because dentures are softer than natural teeth. Instead, we will show you the best ways to keep them clean.
