Dentures

Missing teeth can significantly limit your dental function and have a negative impact on your oral health.

Dentures can replace missing teeth to restore health, appearance, and overall function.

Our dentists at Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, IL, offer full, partial, and implant-supported dentures.

What Are Dentures
Made Of?

Most dentures are made of acrylic resin, a strong but lightweight material that is stain-resistant and easy to adjust. The gum-colored base, also known as the framework, is usually made of the same resin and fits directly over the gums for a seamless blend. Partial dentures can also have metal frames that attach to your natural teeth or crowns for added stability.

Denture Treatment Timeline

Denture treatment at our Orland Park, IL, office requires at least five visits to ensure the prosthesis fits properly. Here are the basic steps to expect during the process.
A skilled lab technician will handcraft your new denture according to your unique anatomy and dentist's specifications. 

First Appointment

A skilled lab technician will handcraft your new denture according to your unique anatomy and dentist's specifications. 

Initial Consultation

During this visit, your dentist performs a comprehensive assessment of your jaw joints, oral soft tissues, and any remaining teeth. Options are discussed in detail and a plan is created.

Preparatory Procedures

Sometimes, preparatory procedures are necessary before a denture can be made. For example, some patients may need to have extractions performed. Others may require periodontal therapy.

Dental Impressions

Next, impressions are taken of your gums and any remaining teeth. These are sent to our Orland Park dental lab so your denture can be custom-crafted to provide a precise fit and natural appearance. Dr. Yamen Akhras and our team work closely with our trusted lab to ensure the denture meets the patient's expectations and standards.

Denture Fabrication

A skilled lab technician handcrafts your new denture according to your unique anatomy and dentist's specifications. Once complete, your appliance is shipped to our office.

Assess the Fit

Finally, your dentist will check the fit and appearance of your dentures to ensure they are working properly. Adjustments are necessary to achieve optimal comfort as you become accustomed to your new appliance.

Dental Implant-Supported Options

Upgrading Your Dentures

Many of our Orland Park patients are happy with the quality of life they achieve with removable dentures. However, some desire improved comfort and better stability than traditional dentures can offer. In addition, dentures must be taken in and out daily for cleanings; at some point, many patients want a more permanent option that offers easier care and a more natural-looking feel. In these cases, they may choose to convert to implant-supported dentures for a better quality of life in the long term.

Dental Implant Considerations

Dental implants are a popular teeth replacement option with a high success rate. They can support a number of restorations—including full and partial dentures—and will never shift position or slip out of place. In addition to traditional implant-supported dentures, our practice offers the innovative All-on-4 technique, which can support a full denture using just four strategically-placed implants. All-on-4 can help patients with bone recession qualify for treatment. We also offer All-on-6 implants for qualifying patients. 


 

While implants offer a number of lifelong oral health benefits that result in future savings, they do require a higher upfront cost. If you would like to explore your tooth replacement treatment options, call our Orland Park, IL, office and speak to one of our knowledgeable team members.

Another Benefit of Implants? They Keep Your Jawbone Healthy and Strong

Dental implants are often considered the gold standard for replacing natural teeth. This is because of one advantage that sets them apart from all other options — their ability to prevent jawbone deterioration.

As we mentioned, tooth loss can lead to changes in your facial appearance. The underlying cause is a weakened jawbone. The roots of your teeth provide stimulation to the jaw. When they are missing, the jaw begins to atrophy. This can lead to problems like shifting teeth, the development of gum disease, and further tooth loss, in addition to facial changes. 

Implants halt that atrophy by filling in for the tooth roots. They even fuse with the jawbone over the course of three to six months, which primes them to provide the most stable support for dentures. At the same time, they safeguard your oral health against significant potential issues and preserve your natural appearance.

Many patients who begin with a removable appliance later move on to an implant-supported version. If you are currently using a removable denture and are interested in exploring your options, we'd love to speak with you. Many patients with long-term tooth loss can receive implants without any preparatory procedures, thanks to the advanced All-on-4 and All-on-6 methods offered by our implant dentist

Our Team Includes An Implant Specialist

Our dentist, Dr. Yamen Akhras, is a dental implant specialist. He has traveled extensively throughout North America to study implant dentistry, and he makes sure his services stay on the cutting edge of care. 

Nervous About Receiving Implants? We Offer Calming Sedation

Are you leaning towards an implant-supported denture but feeling worried about a painful surgery? There's nothing to fear when you work with us. While implant placement isn't actually much more uncomfortable than having a tooth extracted, we go the extra mile to ensure your comfort by offering multiple forms of sedation.

At Premier Dental & Implant Center, you can choose from oral conscious or intravenous (IV) sedation, both of which bring about feelings of deep relaxation. The stress-reducing effects, coupled with local anesthesia, can ensure a virtually pain-free and worry-free experience.

Dr. Akhras, our implant expert, is specially licensed to administer IV sedation. We can also bring in a certified anesthesiologist to administer general anesthesia for more complex procedures, if needed. We can help you determine which option is best for you and incorporate it into your treatment plan.

Call (708) 873-9709 or write to us to discuss which option is best for you, whether it be partial dentures, removable complete dentures, or maximally-supported implant dentures.

Do You Always Need to
Use ​Denture Adhesives? 

Denture adhesives are usually used as temporary solutions when your mouth changes shape and your dentures feel loose. Adhesives should not be a permanent solution to ill-fitting dentures; contact us if your dentures don’t fit properly so our dentists can adjust or replace them as needed.
