Dentures

When figuring out how to best maintain your smile, consider dentures as on option. If you think you are a candidate for dentures, visit the best dentist in Round Lake Beach and we will make sure we give you all the information needed to make a decision. 

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a full-set of custom-made teeth that can be crafted to replace missing teeth. They are natural-looking and easy to wear, making dentures functional and retentive for years and sometimes even decades. 

What Type Of Material Makes Up Dentures?

Dentures can be made up of a few different materials, including:

  • Acrylic resin: This is the most popular denture material as it fixes perfectly to the desired space and it’s the easiest to adjust. 
  • Porcelain: Porcelain is strong and durable, but a bit more expensive than acrylic resin. It gives the teeth a natural appearance and is perfect for full dentures. 
  • Partial metal: These dentures are smaller than the other two, making them more adaptable and tolerable for the patient.

Partial vs. Full Dentures

Partial dentures are used when your surrounding natural teeth don’t have the strength to support other structures such as dental bridges. Additionally, if you have more than one or two teeth missing, partial dentures are a good option. They are fitted to the part of the gum line where they’ll sit comfortably. Because they are not permanently fastened, they can be taken out when needed such as when you go to bed and when you clean them.

Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth in either your top or bottom gum line. They are held in place with a suction mechanism and oral adhesives, making them easy to remove. 

Cleaning Dentures

Dentures can still have bacteria and plaque build-up even though they are artificial. Follow these steps to clean your dentures.

  • Remove them: Take the dentures out of your mouth
  • Water: Run them under clean water to dislodge any food particles that are stuck between the teeth, or under the structure.
  • Brush: Take a soft toothbrush and brush the dentures with mild soap or a denture cleaner. Do not use regular toothpaste or an electric toothbrush because they’re too abrasive. 
  • Rise: Once you have cleaned them and gotten any foreign particles out of the way, rinse the dentures.
