Struggling with tooth loss? Dentures can significantly bring back the quality of life that you desire, and come in a variety of constructions, each suited for a unique situation. Here at Hidden Lakes Dental Care in Bolingbrook, IL, your dentists, Dr. Kathryn Bachinsky and Dr. Christine Petrilla, can help you decide which option is best for you.

Types of Dentures Available at Hidden Lakes Dental Care

There are two categories of dentures available, full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all of the teeth are removed, while partial dentures address partial tooth loss.

Full Dentures

  • Immediate Dentures: On tooth removal, it is natural to observe some gum shrinkage. Immediate dentures are made as a temporary means to allow you to have new teeth right away and give you time to adjust and heal.
  • Conventional Full Dentures: These are permanent dentures that conform to your mouth with near-perfect precision. They are made to look as natural as possible and made to function for a long time.
  • Implant-Supported Overdentures: This form of dentures is anchored using two or more dental implants to increase their stability. This option can provide a great balance of comfort and functionality.

Partial Dentures

  • Transitional Partial Dentures: When the tooth removal is partial, these temporary and inexpensive removable plastic dentures serve as tooth replacements and spacers as your mouth heals from the extraction process.
  • Removable Partial Dentures: These dentures are usually more expensive than plastic dentures but they are also made to fit better. They are usually made of a cast Vitallium and are metal-based removable dentures.
