Complete and Partial Dentures

Kildeer, Illinois

If you are in search of a time-tested and affordable solution to replace missing teeth, you may want to consider a complete or partial denture. Today’s restorations are not like those of the past. They are much sleeker, more comfortable, more functional, and more natural-looking than ever before, enhancing your oral health and quality of life.

Complete Dentures - An Overview

Complete or full dentures are removable oral appliances designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They come with gum-colored acrylic bases that support artificial teeth made to match your smile. At Studio Smiles, we offer two main types of complete dentures: immediate and conventional.

  • Immediate dentures: Immediate dentures are created ahead of time and placed in the mouth after any remaining natural teeth are extracted. However, the gums and jawbone will change shape during the healing period. That means your immediate dentures will need to be relined for a better fit, which we build into your care plan. The most significant advantage of immediate dentures is that you don’t have to go without teeth a single day!
  • Conventional Dentures: Conventional dentures are created from 3D scans of your mouth and positioned after removing any remaining teeth and waiting for the bones and tissues to heal. That typically takes about 6 to 12 weeks. Waiting for healing allows us to work in the subtle details of your mouth, providing a comfortable fit and superior function.

Partial Dentures - An Overview

Partial dentures are removable dental restorations that replace one or multiple teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They consist of replacement teeth that rest on gum-colored bases attached to supporting metal frameworks. Partials connect to existing teeth with the help of metal clasps or precision attachments.

Traditional partial dentures offer a long-term solution to fill gaps in your smile. They allow us to add additional replacement teeth, as needed, to keep you smiling your best.

Why Choose a Complete or Partial Denture?

Replacing missing teeth with a complete or partial denture enhances your oral health and quality of life. You’ll chew better, speak more clearly, and support your facial structure, restoring your youthful appearance and confident smile.

Leaving a gap in your smile is a serious matter. The neighboring teeth may drift toward the space, leading to crooked teeth and problems with the bite. Moreover, the imbalance created by missing teeth can increase the risk of gum disease, uneven tooth wear, and TMJ pain. Wearing a partial denture will keep the teeth from shifting out of space, preventing many of the complications that often follow tooth loss.

Caring for Your Complete or Partial Dentures

Whether you wear a complete or partial denture, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing. That helps remove plaque and stimulates blood circulation in your tissues. It’s also important to brush your dentures daily using a soft-bristled brush and denture cleanser to remove plaque and food particles and prevent staining. Make sure to keep up with your regular dental visits to allow us to monitor your oral health and ensure your replacement teeth stay in tip-top shape.

If your dentures develop uncomfortable spots or sustain damage, it may be tempting to make repairs yourself. However, that can cause irreparable damage to your restorations. Instead, contact our office, and we’ll make any needed adjustments so your replacement teeth continue functioning as they should. With proper care, your dentures will enhance your smile for many years.
