Types of Dentures at The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry

Everyday tasks like eating, speaking, and laughing can be uncomfortable and embarrassing if you have significant tooth loss. Restoring missing teeth is not the only key to improving the aesthetics of your smile but the function as well.

Traditional dentures from our team can be a cost-effective and comfortable solution for tooth loss. First, we take high-quality impressions of your mouth in the comfort of our office. Then, we use them as a basis to create your custom restoration. We may recommend a denture, a partial denture, or an implant-supported denture to restore your smile.

Partial Denture

Partial Dentures in Skokie, Illinois

We use a partial denture restoration to replace missing teeth on either the top or bottom jaw. Patients can consider partials as a unique type of dental bridge. A metal frame supports the restoration, which we then attach to the existing tooth. In many cases, we place a custom dental crown on the existing tooth for added strength and durability.

Full Denture

Full Dentures in Skokie, Illinois

A full denture is for patients who are missing all their teeth. Our custom dentures can be a viable option for your smile if you recently extracted teeth. A traditional denture consists of a gum-colored plastic base that fits comfortably over your gums. We attach artificial teeth to each base to replicate a natural-looking smile.

A traditional denture can restore beauty and balance to your smile, as well as restore chewing function. Traditional dentures and partials offer commendable results, however some patients seek a more permanent solution.

For patients who qualify, our team may recommend an implant-supported restoration. Rather than relying on the gums for support, an implant-supported restoration relies on dental implants for support. Not only does this address issues such as bone loss and difficulties chewing. But it also provides added comfort and stability for patients with missing teeth.

Denture FAQs

How many hours a day should you wear partial dentures?

Patients should wear their dentures throughout their entire day and remove them before bed to give their mouth a resting period. Removing your dentures at night gives your gums and mouth tissue a break from the appliance.

Is it hard to eat with partial dentures?

Some patients report trouble eating sticky or hard foods with partial dentures, but most patients report no issues. Partial denture wearers should avoid particularly chewy or sticky foods, and chew on the side without the denture.

How long does it take to adjust to wearing a partial denture?

Most patients say that they fully integrate to wearing dentures after about a month. Give yourself some time to adjust to get back to eating, chewing, and speaking normally. Most patients feel comfortable with daily activities after a month.

Do you put dentures in your mouth wet or dry?

Wet your dentures before placing them in your mouth wet. They need to remain wet so that they keep their shape. We recommend that you soak them in a cleaning solution or water when you are not wearing them.

Can you use mouthwash with dentures?

Yes, you can use mouthwash to clean your dentures. Patients may scrub their dentures with mouthwash to clean them. However, this is not the best solution, and you should still brush them as if they were your natural teeth. Always keep your dentures clean.

Do dentures make your breath stink?

Patients commonly associate bad breath with denture issues. When you do not clean your dentures properly, bacteria and plaque form on the surface of dentures. The bacteria causes an odor. This issue is easy to combat by keeping your dentures clean and rinsing your mouth regularly.
