Dentures & Partial Dentures in Naperville

Naperville Family Dental can provide you with both complete and partial dentures. Dentures are an effective teeth replacement option for patients who have lost teeth for a wide variety of reasons, restoring natural speaking and eating abilities.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a prosthetic removable replacement to replace missing teeth. They are specially designed for each patient, providing a close fit for their mouth. While many people associate dentures only with a complete replacement for all teeth, partial dentures are also available for patients who still have some natural teeth.

A variety of different materials are used to make dentures and give them the look and feel of natural teeth. Dentures can be made of resin, porcelain, or specialized denture acrylic. These materials are hard and durable, standing up to the significant pressure involved in chewing and other activities.

Getting Your Dentures

The first step to getting your dentures will be ensuring the correct fit. Dr. Don Jonker provides the high-quality dentures in Naperville by putting the latest technology to use during the fitting process. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that the fit is as close as possible. Once your dentures are ready, you can start using them immediately.

Partial dentures undergo a similar process but rely on existing teeth for support. In most cases, a partial denture will be supported by adjacent teeth, acting as a removable dental bridge. In some cases, this can be accomplished with partial denture implants, where the implants serve as the supports.

Living with Dentures

The transition to living with dentures can be difficult for some patients. The unfamiliar experience takes some adjustment as patients become more comfortable with their dentures. Some patients can experience discomfort and soreness at first, but these issues generally fade.

Dentures can restore a patient’s ability to eat and speak more naturally. While dentures are a great help, most patients will need time to adjust to them. Those with new dentures should eat only soft foods that are cut into small pieces until they get used to their dentures.

Some patients may require the use of a denture adhesive, particularly those with dry mouth conditions. This will vary on a case-by-case basis.
