If you are missing all or some of your teeth, you may appear older than your years. The lack of support causes facial muscles to cave in and sometimes sag. Natural looking dentures bring life-changing benefits to our patients. At Renken Dentistry in Springfield, IL we offer natural-looking dentures, implant-supported prosthetics, and partial dentures.
Natural-looking dentures are crafted to match your smile with a personalized selection of colors, styles, and textures, customized to fit your mouth. Full, removable dentures are prosthetic teeth attached to an acrylic base designed to resemble gums. This type of tooth replacement can be used to replace an entire mouthful of missing teeth.
Implant-supported dentures can be used when a patient has no natural teeth, but still has enough strong bone to support dental implants in the jaw. Our Springfield dentists use special attachments to secure the implant-supported denture to the surgically inserted posts. Typically, implant-supported dentures are worn on the lower jaw because conventional dentures tend to be less stable on the bottom. Extra support is not usually needed for upper dentures, but you can wear implant-supported dentures in either the lower or upper jaw.
A partial denture is a removable dental bridge of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. It fills in the gaps where one or more teeth are missing. A partial is held together by a metal framework that latches onto existing teeth to keep it in place.
With modern technology, today’s dentures are nothing like what your grandparents wore. They are natural in appearance and help restore your beautiful smile. In addition, dentures provide functional support for your facial muscles and improve your ability to bite, chew and speak clearly.
