Dentures are permanent prosthetic appliances that are ideal for replacing most or all or your teeth. Our dentists at Chicago Osteopathic Hospital Dental Clinic PC, Dr. Wilson, Dr. Wegmann, and Dr. Choo, offer many types of dentures to meet your specific needs and goals. Available at our office are full dentures, partial dentures, and flexible partial dentures.
Full dentures are what most people think of when they imagine dentures. Shaped like horseshoes and made from prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored based, full dentures are used to replace all the teeth in your upper or lower dental arch, or both. They rest fully on the gums. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used when there are still some teeth remaining in your smile. Along with the base, it is also supported by metal framework. We also offer flexible partial dentures, which use plastic for support. We will work together with you to determine which type of dentures in Chicago, Illinois, will be best for your smile.
There are many advantages to dentures. They are removable, non-invasive, and more affordable when compared to other tooth replacement methods.
