What Are Dentures
Made Of?

Most dentures are made of acrylic resin, a strong but lightweight material that’s 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. 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, practice requires at least five visits to ensure the prosthesis fits properly. Here are the basic steps to expect during the process.

First Appointment

Initial Consultation

During this visit, our 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, our dentists 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.

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. 

Dental Implant-Supported Options

Upgrading Your Dentures

Many of our Orland Park, IL, patients are happy with the quality of life they achieve with our affordable dentures. However, some individuals desire improved comfort and better stability than what 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 prevent jaw deterioration as a result of missing teeth. 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.

Dr. Yamen and his staff were absolutely amazing. I called in with major tooth pain and they took me within the hour. His assistant took my X-ray and Dr. Yamen came in and explained everything thoroughly. His assistant came back into the room explained my treatment plan, and what my insurance covered. Dr Yamen took the tooth out and next week I'm scheduled to get my cleaning with their hygienist!  Would highly recommend.
