How dentures and partials can restore function and beauty to the smile
Dentures are an excellent way for patients with missing teeth to restore their smiles. However, patients might feel unsure about what type of dental restoration they should choose. While there are several options available, including dental implants and dental bridges, dentures have become a popular and affordable option for patients to consider. Many dental insurance plans provide substantial coverage for these restorations, and they are a great way to quickly address tooth loss until more permanent options are considered later. If you want to learn more about dentures, connect with our Oak Lawn, Illinois team at Eco Friendly Dentistry to educate yourself on the solutions readily available for our patients.
What types of dentures are available?
Modern false teeth are much more realistic and fit considerably better than older types of prosthetic teeth. If you are considering dentures, below are your options available at Eco Friendly Dentistry:
- Complete dentures. Complete dentures refer to dentures that replace the entire arch of teeth. These dentures are made of high-quality acrylic material and created to match the patient’s existing teeth as closely as possible. This allows patients to come out of the dental office with a smile that looks natural and provides self-confidence.
- Partial dentures. Partial dentures sometimes referred to as just partials, are dentures that are made with a metal framework or thermoplastic/valplast and have false teeth that slide into places where missing teeth once were. This completes the smile’s appearance and restores the function, allowing patients to enjoy all their favorite foods without worry.
