Joliet Dentures. Many consider dentures as old school, but dentures available today fit far more comfortably as they are lighter and more durable than ever before. Often made from acrylic material, dentures are one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth, especially amongst edentulous and senior patients. Apart from offering an aesthetic and cost-effective solution, dentures are a straightforward solution for missing teeth replacement.

Joliet Dentures

kinds of dentures are available:

  • Conventional Full Denture – A conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Healing may take several months, during which time you are without teeth.
  • Immediate Full Denture – An immediate full denture is inserted immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. (We will take measurements and make models of your jaw during a prior visit.) While immediate dentures offer the benefit of never having to be without your teeth, they must be relined several months after being inserted. The reason is that the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals, causing the denture to become loose.
  • Partial Dentures – A partial denture rests on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges
