Dentures And Partial Dentures in Park Ridge, IL

Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures at Signature Smiles of Park Ridge, are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are custom made to fit your mouth comfortably and can restore both the function and aesthetics of your teeth. Dentures come in two main types: complete dentures and partial dentures.

Complete Dentures in Park Ridge, IL

Complete dentures are used when all natural teeth are missing. They can be either "conventional" or "immediate."

  • Conventional dentures: These are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. They are usually ready for placement about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.
  • Immediate dentures: These are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. While they provide the patient with the benefit of not having to be without teeth during the healing period, they may require adjustments as the gums and bone heal and shrink over time.

Partial Dentures in Park Ridge, IL

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

The Benefits of Dentures and Partial Dentures in Park Ridge, IL

Dentures and partial dentures can provide numerous benefits, including:

Improved Appearance

Dentures can restore your smile and fill out the appearance of your face and profile, which can sag and look sunken due to tooth loss.

Enhanced Function

Dentures improve your ability to eat and speak, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and communicate clearly.

Support for Facial Muscles

Dentures support the muscles in your face, which can prevent a sunken appearance and help you look more youthful.

Increased Confidence

With a full set of teeth, you can smile with confidence and engage in social activities without feeling self-conscious.

Prevention of Dental Issues

Partial dentures can prevent remaining teeth from shifting and causing further dental problems.

Caring for Your Dentures in Park Ridge, IL

Proper care and maintenance of your dentures are essential for their longevity and your oral health. Here are some tips to help you care for your dentures:

  • Daily cleaning: Clean your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush and a nonabrasive denture cleaner. Avoid using regular toothpaste, as it can be too abrasive and damage the denture material.
  • Rinse after eating: Rinse your dentures with water after eating to remove any food particles and prevent staining.
  • Handle with care: Handle your dentures carefully to avoid dropping and damaging them. When cleaning your dentures, do so over a soft towel or a basin of water to prevent breakage if they are accidentally dropped.
  • Soak overnight: Soak your dentures in a denture cleaning solution or water overnight to keep them moist and maintain their shape. Never use hot water, as it can warp the dentures.
  • Regular Checkups: Schedule regular dental checkups with Dr. Kandi to ensure your dentures fit properly and to address any issues or adjustments needed.
