Also known as “false teeth,” dentures are prosthetic devices that replace some orall ofthe remaining natural teeth.AtStone Dental Group-SE Chicago Dentistry,they are designed to look as much like your real teeth as possible, and gum tissue-colored acrylic is used to craft them. When teeth are lost or removed, the bone beneath them begins to deteriorate – dental implants can help prevent this process by stimulating bone growth and preserving jaw structure. However, some patients are not candidates for implants due to health reasons, finances, or other issues. In this case, we offer traditional full dentures. These removable prosthetics are designed to last for several years at a time before needing to be replaced. Full dentures are held in place with suction and adhesives. It is important to remove and clean your dentures every night before bed tomaintaingood oral hygiene and avoid staining caused by foods and beverages like coffee, tea, dark berries, and more. You should remove your dentures in the morning to give your gums a rest and allow them time to fully heal overnight. This allows your gums to regain their strength, so you can wear your dentures for longer periods of time in the future.
First, we take impressions of your mouth. These molds allow us to design the dentures that will fit perfectly over your gums. Then, we send them to our lab where a skilled technician uses them to craft each set of dentures. Finally, you’ll return to our office for your final fitting so that we can make any adjustments necessary to ensure the perfect fit! The final step is to practice using them regularly until they’re a natural addition to your smile.
After the extractions, the gums will shrink back over time, which will cause the teeth to appear longer and thinner than before. Getting dentures will restore the natural size of the teeth and also improve the appearance of your smile.
Wearing dentures will allow you to speak more clearly and eat a wider variety of foods. Since they restore your ability to chew and speak clearly, you will be able to maintain confidence while interacting with others.
The teeth are responsible for the majority of the work when eating and speaking. When they are extracted and not replaced, this results in many negative oral health effects such as shifting of the teeth, jawbone deterioration, and difficulty keeping other healthy teeth in the mouth. By getting dentures, you can once again properly chew your food and keep your teeth from shifting out of place or moving out of alignment with each other.
Patients who get dentures will find that their speech improves and that they can enjoy the full benefits of orthodontic treatments that improve their bite alignment.
