Receive the smile you deserve while enjoying the comfortable atmosphere with the experienced doctors of Champaign Dental.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue. There are two types of dentures available, including partial and full dentures. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile!
This restoration method is used to improve your smile and mouth function if all your teeth have been lost or all your teeth need to be removed. The dentures are custom created to resemble natural teeth and are positioned to take the place of natural teeth. Complete dentures are removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
A removable partial denture is a device used when one or more natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jaw. They usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base which is held in place in the mouth. A fixed partial denture acts the same as a removable denture, but it is cemented into place using adjacent teeth for support.
New dentures may feel awkward or loose for the first few weeks until the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place and you are comfortable eating and speaking. Although this may require some practice you will adjust and enjoy the benefits a full mouth of teeth can provide.
Wearing dentures can be a great solution to lost teeth, however permanent dentures that utilize dental implants, eliminate the need for messy denture adhesives and create a better long term solution.
