Did you know! Around 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. For many of these individuals, dentures are a great option for restoring the appearance and integrity of their smile. We’re proud to offer multiple types of dentures at Valerin Dental Group of Peoria, IL.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a popular tooth replacement option. They are designed with plastic resin resembling gum tissue and periprosthetic teeth. Dentures are generally removable, but they can also be secured into the mouth via implants.
How Dentures are Fitted
Our dental team uses advanced clinical training and an artistic eye to create custom dentures of all styles and sizes (e.g., full, partial). We’ll make an exact mold of the upper and bottom parts of your mouth. We then use this mold to create dentures that give you a natural-looking smile.
We take the time and attention needed to ensure your dentures have a balanced bite, meaning that the upper and lower dentures align and stabilize properly. This is essential for ensuring form, function, and comfort are optimal.
Taking Care of Your Dentures
Our dental team will answer all your questions about how to care for your dentures, including how to store, clean, use, and don/doff them. If your temporary dentures start to fit improperly after a few months (a normal consequence of tissue shrinkage and bone loss), we can discuss the best options for restoring a good fit, such as re-lining or a transition to full dentures.
