We’ve put together some statistics on missing teeth, nodding to the importance of quality tooth replacement options like full and partial dentures to help restore the smiles of our patients.

What Are Dentures?

With tooth loss so prevalent in the U.S. and beyond, it’s important to understand the ramifications that result from foregoing tooth replacement options. Prolonged tooth loss will likely result in bone atrophy which causes bone atrophy, or the deterioration of the jaw bone. Other side effects of tooth loss include difficulty chewing, altered speech, and even the development of depression due to the decrease in self-confidence that tooth loss brings. Dentures are a tooth replacement option for those who are suffering from tooth loss. Other options include full dentures, partial dentures and dentures that are supported by dental implants. These lifelike replacement options not only help restore confidence but functionality and appearance. 

Defining Full & Partial Dentures

If you’re looking for a tooth replacement option that will help regain oral function, consider dentures to restore your smile. They are prosthetics (artificial teeth) that replace both the teeth and gums in your mouth. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in your mouth while partial dentures only replace single teeth at a time. Dentures can be used on both the bottom and top row of your teeth and they are custom designed to visually match existing teeth. 

Regardless of the type of denture that suits your needs the best, our team will fabricate your dentures based on exact measurements and specifications. Our prosthodontists are trained to have exceptional attention to detail which helps ensure your dentures fit exactly how they are supposed to. During the fitting process, Dr. Bicakci will utilize both diagnostic images and impressions (molds) to create your highly customized dentures. The end results will ease any apprehensions that you may have, as they not only look extremely lifelike, but they are very durable as well. Both porcelain and pink-tinted acrylics are utilized to replicate your natural smile. 

All-on-4 Implants

All-on-4 implants are a method of securing the dentures to your jaw bone to optimize functionality and comfort. The process utilizes four anchors that help secure the dentures permanently to dental implants. The implants are made from small titanium bases that resemble a screw, and they are placed directly into the jaw bone. Titanium is utilized because the material is biocompatible with the oral health system. It can even promote the growth of new jaw bone, something that patients may begin to lose with age.

Some patients may opt for multiple dental implants to be placed into the jaw to fully replace their arch of teeth. This is because dentures replace the visible structures of teeth while dental implants are a replacement for the missing tooth roots themselves. Those who opt for All-on-4 implant-supported dentures care for their smile the same way they do their biological teeth while full or partial dentures are removed and soaked overnight. 

If you need assistance pinpointing what specific type of dentures in Chicago are ideal for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our prosthodontists at Chicago Dental Solutions to schedule a consultation.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much do dentures cost?

A: The answer to this depends on many different factors that come into play. Patients may want full dentures, partial dentures, or implant-supported dentures, and they each cost a varying amount. Any preliminary treatments that are necessary will also impact the overall price, as some patients require tooth removal before starting the process. We will be able to better provide you with an estimate once you have had a consultation with our team. 

Q: What is the cost of dentures without insurance?

A: Dental insurance is an ideal way to help pay for your new smile, however, even patients who have dental insurance may require some payment that’s out of pocket. Instead of thinking about the short-term cost, think about the long-term benefit, as you are investing in your extended confidence and functionality. Know that our dentures in Chicago will last you for years and years to come. Our staff is happy to answer any specific questions that you have about insurance. 

Q: What type of dentures are available to me?

A: We offer full dentures, partial dentures and implant-supported dentures. Each has its own benefits depending on your current situation and unique needs. We understand that no two patients are the same so we will always evaluate your smile and make suggestions that will suit you and your lifestyle. 

Q: What are permanent dentures?

A: Both full and partial dentures are removable and they are either supported by the arch of the jaw or by existing teeth. However, permanent dentures are inserted via dental implants, meaning they are a permanent solution to your smile. Dental implants utilize titanium bases that are embedded directly into the jawbone, offering additional stability and durability to the dentures. The most common method for securing dentures to dental implants is through All-on-4, meaning there is a series of strategically placed dental implant anchors that secure to the full arch of teeth, resulting in a permanent solution for missing teeth. 

Q: What are partial dentures?

A: Partial dentures are an ideal solution for patients who have a handful of missing teeth. They are utilized to support the existing natural teeth while effectively replacing missing teeth. These prosthetic teeth are made from the same materials as full dentures and they attach to the existing tooth structure through snaps. Partial dentures in Chicago are custom for each patient. 

Q: How do I care for my removable dentures?

A: Caring for your dentures will help them last longer and ensures that you are taking the steps to keep your smile healthy. When you aren’t wearing your dentures, it’s ideal to keep them in a water or denture solution. Remove your dentures before you go to sleep to allow the soft tissue in your mouth to breathe. Use a soft toothbrush to clean your dentures on a daily basis and rinse them under warm water after each meal to get rid of debris. 

Q: Are dental implants painful?

A: Dr. Bicakci is a skilled prosthodontist that will do everything possible to ensure patients have a pleasant experience at our practice. Our goal is to help each and every patient achieve a higher quality of life by renewing their oral function and improving their natural smile.
