Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several missing teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. Springer/Orser Dentistry can provide either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Arlington Heights, IL. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. At our practice, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful. Make an appointment at Springer/Orser to receive more information about removable dentures.
You could be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. At your initial consultation, we will assess your oral health and explain your choices to fit your budget and needs.
What To Expect
In some cases, an extraction may need to be performed on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, which will help customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your custom dentures are made, we will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. We will also talk with you about how to clean and care for your dentures.
It may require time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to our facility to get your dentures re-fitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times daily. At night or whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to attend cleanings and exams so we can examine the fit and wear of your restoration and the overall health of your mouth. We will discuss when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with ideal treatment, your custom dentures can last for several years.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and personal costs. In your initial consultation, your treatment plan with be developed so your dentures match your budget and needs.
