What your dentists in River Forest, Illinois want you to know

Removable DentureYour smile is important for many reasons; your self-esteem, self-confidence, ability to eat, and your overall health all depend on your smile. If you are missing teeth, it’s easy to become discouraged, but there is help available. You need to discover the benefits of removable dentures! Dr. Gina Piccioni and Dr. John Hartmann at River Forest Dental Studio in River Forest, Illinois want to share the facts about how a removable denture can help you.

Today’s dentures have come a long way. Modern dentures are made of sturdy, lifelike materials to give you years of beautiful smiles and great chewing ability. Removable dentures can provide:

  • Great ability to chew and enjoy the foods you love
  • Increased ability to digest your food which helps your overall health
  • A beautiful smile to restore your self-confidence and self-esteem

If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, you need a full denture, which comes in several types including:

  • A conventional denture, which is placed after your tissue has healed, usually at 6 to 8 weeks
  • An immediate denture, which is placed immediately after your teeth are removed; a more permanent, conventional denture will be made for you after your tissue has healed completely.
  • An overdenture, which is placed on top of dental implants or tooth roots, providing excellent support, stability, and conservation of bone

If you need to only replace a few teeth, you need a partial denture. Consider:

  • A conventional partial denture, which is placed after your tissue has healed
  • A transitional partial denture, which is a temporary option if you are considering dental implants later on
