At Lotus Dental, we offer our patients both partial and full dentures at our Glendale Heights clinic. Anyone missing teeth can benefit from wearing dentures; tooth replacement helps restore essential mouth functions like chewing or speaking.
Dentures are prosthetics used to replace lost or missing teeth. They can be removed for cleaning and sleeping. Modern dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking than ever.
The two main types of replacement teeth are full dentures and partial dentures. During your oral exam, Dr. Saila Anumula will determine the best solution for you to restore the beauty and natural function of your smile.
New dentures are custom-made in a lab from individual mouth impressions. Our Lotus Dental staff will help you choose the ideal denture for your case:
If you are missing an entire mouthful of teeth, a full denture may be recommended to restore your oral health. A complete set of replacement teeth is supported by the gums and is removed for cleaning. Once your denture is completed at the dental lab, Dr. Anumula will check for a proper fit and any bite issues. If needed, adjustments will be made.
Partials involve a metal framework that latches on to your natural teeth. For some patients, dental crowns serve as anchors for the partial denture. This type of prosthetic can also be used in lieu of a dental bridge.
