Are you missing a series of teeth or all your teeth? Are you unhappy with the way your smile looks? Are you ready to discuss tooth replacement options with your dentist? Dentures are a popular tooth replacement option that are recommended when a patient prefers them over dental implants or the patient is not a good candidate for dental implants. Dentures have come a long way over the past couple of decades and are relied on to provide natural-looking smiles to those who are missing teeth.
The team at Western Springs Dentistry is proud to be able to offer you high-quality, affordable dentures in Western Springs. If you are interested in our superior restoring your beautiful smile, please call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tanquilut to discuss in details.
Types of Dentures We Offer
- Partials – replace a series of missing teeth
- Full – replace all the teeth in your upper and/or lower jaws
- Temporary – placed immediately while you wait for permanent dentures
- Implant-retained – support dentures using implants and a bar
- Implant-supported – support dentures for permanent stability
Temporary or Immediate Dentures
Dr. Tanquilut offers temporary or immediate dentures to those who are in need of an immediate fix to their missing teeth. Temporaries are typically used once a patient has had their teeth extracted. After the extraction, temporary dentures are placed in the mouth to provide the patient with a way to talk and smile without the worry of no teeth.
It is important to know that with temporary dentures, they are just that – temporary. You will need to come back in and have them switched out with permanent ones after they are complete from the lab.
Implant-Supported and Implant-Retained Dentures
Implant-retained and implant-supported dentures are different than traditional removable ones. For this procedure, you will have implants placed into your bone, where they will fuse together and create a strong foundation for your replacement teeth. Instead of having individual crowns placed on top of the implants, you will have dentures secured to the top of the posts with either a bar and attachments, or a ball-and-socket system. We can even adjust your current dentures to secure them with implants.
The dentures are locked into place and will remain there so that you don’t have to worry about slipping, gum irritation, or gooey adhesives anymore!
Call us Today for Consultation
If you are ready to discuss your denture options, we welcome you to come in for a consultation. During this time, you and Dr. Tanquilut can go over all you need to know about restoring your smile, and he can answer any questions you have about the procedure.
Prior to receiving your dentures, any other dental problems that you have will need to be address. If you have gum disease, Dr. Tanquilut will treat it prior to placing the dentures in your mouth.
