Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are formed to your mouth and created by your dentists to replace lost or removed natural teeth.
Millions of people suffer from edentulism (missing teeth) every year. Luckily, there’s a solution to getting back your full smile with dentures! Dentures can either be full or partial, meaning they can either replace all teeth on the top or bottom gum line. At One Fine Smile, we can restore your smile with high-quality custom-made dentures and partials in Oak Park.
What are Dentures and Partials?
A denture is a full plate of teeth that looks and feels like the real thing. The dentures are made for you in a local lab and are matched perfectly with your smile to get a beautifully realistic prosthetic. Dentures can be permanent or removable, depending on your wants and needs.
Partials do not contain a full arch of teeth and are instead customized so that you can put the appliance in and restore multiple teeth that are missing. Think of a denture as an arch-full of teeth and apart as a denture that only contains the teeth that you’re missing.
Do I Need Dentures or Partials?
An exam and series of x-rays will be taken to determine if dentures or a partial are the right options for you. Some of the best candidates for this particular appliance include:
- You are missing all or some of your teeth
- You aren’t a viable candidate for implants or don’t want them placed
- You want a full, beautiful smile
- You need a long-lasting prosthetic that offers durability
How Do Dentures and Partials Work?
The process for getting dentures and partials is relatively pain-free and straightforward. The process for each will differ depending on your specific needs. Our highly trained dentists will go over all your questions and concerns and determine what course of action is needed. Once a dental plan is in place, they will go over the processes and expectations for both Full and Partials Dentures.
