What Are My Alternatives to Dental Implants?
If you have been told that you do not have enough bone for dental implants, or if you prefer to avoid surgical procedures because of health issues, full and partial dentures remain a popular choice in our Glenview, IL dental office and can give you your smile back.
Full and partial dentures look far more natural than they did in years past because of advancements in technology and materials. Denture teeth now come in a variety of natural-looking shades and shapes to match your coloring, facial structure, gender, and age. Gone are the days of bulky, generic looking teeth.
Full Dentures for a Complete Smile
If you are missing all (edentulous) or most of your teeth, complete or full dentures offer a solution to improve dietary choices and fill out your facial features. If you have had difficulty in the past with ill-fitting dentures, it might be time to replace them. Since your bone shrinks over time, dentures need replacement every 5-8 years or so.
Partial Dentures to Match Your Smile
If you still have natural teeth remaining, partial dentures restore your chewing surface and fill in the gaps caused by tooth loss. Partial dentures will also help to keep your remaining teeth from shifting and becoming misaligned, which puts your oral health at risk.
Our dentists meticulously match your partial dentures to your natural teeth for a seamless result.
Caring for Your Full and Partial Dentures
We recommend you bring your full and partial dentures to your regular dental appointments at our Glenview, IL dental office so that we can clean them for you and look for signs of damage. They may also require occasional adjustments, and complete dentures sometimes require an in-office or laboratory reline to improve fit.
