Dentures

West Suburban Oral Healthcare

What are dentures?

Dentures are dental appliances that replace your missing teeth. Depending on the condition of your mouth, a few different options exist: full dentures, partial dentures, and overdentures.

Full dentures

Full dentures are removable, prosthetic teeth and gums that replace all of your upper or lower teeth, and in some cases, both.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures can replace groups of teeth or a few teeth scattered across your lower or upper jaw. As they are based on your specific dental needs, there are a variety of different partial dentures available at West Suburban Oral Healthcare.

Overdentures

Overdentures combine traditional dentures with the technology of dental implants. They sit securely in place because of their attachment to your lower jaw, allowing better comfort, speech, and taste.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures not only improve the aesthetic of your smile, they enable you to eat and speak more easily than you would without teeth.

Dentures also help to support your facial features. Losing your teeth can cause your facial muscles to sag. Dentures help fill out your facial features and correct this problem, as well as support your jaw and prevent bone loss.

What are All-on-Four dentures?

All-on-Four dental implants are a permanent solution for missing or severely damaged teeth. This dental appliance replaces all of your teeth on one arch with only four implants.

The providers at West Suburban Oral Health secure the implants directly into your jaw, enabling them to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Depending on your condition, you can elect for this option for either your top arch or lower arch of teeth, or for both.

The procedure takes roughly two-and-a-half-hours per arch.

What are the advantages of the All-on-Four option?

The All-on-Four replacement option helps avoid many issues that many denture users often face. These issues include:

  • Difficulty chewing certain foods
  • Embarrassing noises like whistling or smacking
  • Slurred speech
  • Slipping or moving of your denture
  • Gum and mouth irritation
  • Oral infections
  • Pain due to poorly fitting dentures

The providers at West Suburban Oral Health can discuss your dental options with you to help decide what replacement appliance might be best for you. Call West Suburban Oral Health today or request an appointment online.
