If you have lost all or most of your teeth, you may be considering dentures. Recent improvements in denture technology make these a better option than ever before. Call River City Family Dentistry if you’re ready to get dentures in Dunlap IL.
Dentures are custom-made, removable teeth that fit your mouth in a very precise way. They can be a complete set, but if you still have a few teeth, it’s possible to get what is known as partials. The advantages of dentures include:
This is a multi-step process that first involves us checking your overall oral health and addressing any problems that might exist. We take X-rays to get a complete picture of the bone structure of your jaw, and we make imprints so we have a life-size replica of your gums. It typically takes several steps to make sure your new dentures fit perfectly.
Natural teeth are never 100 percent perfect, and dentures should not be, either. Good dentures have small imperfections, making them look far more natural. You have a choice in materials and in whether the dentures will be implant-supported or removable. Some options are more expensive than others, so you’ll have to consider your options.
Just as natural teeth require care to keep them at their best, so do dentures. You’ll want to rinse them after eating and to brush any remaining teeth you might have with a toothbrush as usual. You’ll brush your dentures and (in most cases) soak them overnight in water or a special solution. Exact instructions may vary a bit according to the type of dentures you receive. But rest assured, we’ll make sure you have all the information you need to care for your dentures properly.
