Receiving Partial or Complete Dentures

Posted .

Our team is here to help you have strong oral health and a smile that looks beautiful and meets your preferences. If disease or trauma has resulted in missing teeth, the appearance and function of your smile could be altered. We may recommend receiving partial or full dentures to address tooth loss and create a smile that you love.

Dr. Ira J. Dolnick can help you determine if you would benefit more from a partial or complete denture. Either kind of denture you receive replaces the loss of teeth and can ensure that your smile still looks natural, but it’s important to know the difference between the two. You may find that partial dentures are optimal if you have only lost one or a few teeth and still have some natural teeth that can support your new appliance. Alternatively, complete dentures replace an entire dental arch if you experienced full tooth loss, and they suction to your mouth roof so that your appliance is secure in your smile.

Some patients experience minor discomfort when first receiving dentures because the mouth needs a few days to adjust to new teeth. For example, your saliva flow may increase for a short while until the new appliance feels natural. You can adjust to your denture appliance quickly by speaking and chewing while wearing the denture.

If you have experienced tooth loss and would like to know if you can receive long-term tooth replacement with custom dentures in Niles, Illinois, we invite you to contact Dolnick and Associates at 847-299-3365 today and arrange a consultation with our doctor!
