Dentures & Partials

Chicago, Illinois

Losing one or more of your teeth can make it hard to eat, speak, or smile, and we at Bristle Dental Studio are here to help. We are pleased to offer complete and partial dentures, a time-tested solution to replace missing teeth. Your new restorations will improve your quality of life and have you smiling with confidence once again.

What Are Dentures and Partials?

Dentures and partials are highly sought-after removable replacements for missing teeth. They offer an affordable solution for patients with tooth loss resulting from deep decay, gum disease, or trauma. There are two leading types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures replace all the teeth in one or both arches, while partial dentures replace missing teeth when some natural teeth remain.

Complete Dentures - An Overview

Complete dentures are typically made of acrylic, gum-colored bases that support natural-looking artificial teeth. They are typically held in place by facial muscles and suction. There are two types of complete dentures: immediate and conventional.

Immediate Dentures: Immediate dentures are positioned in your mouth immediately after extracting any remaining teeth, so you don’t go without teeth a single day. However, the gums and bone change shape as the area heals, so your immediate dentures will require adjustments and relining to continue to fit and function as they should. Immediate dentures are considered an interim solution to restore your smile until you are ready for conventional dentures.

Conventional Dentures: Conventional dentures are created from digital models of your mouth after your mouth has had time to heal, taking into account every subtle detail of your gums and bite. That helps ensure the best fit, comfort, and function. Conventional dentures are made from high-quality, durable materials, providing a long-term solution to restore your smile.

Removable Partial Dentures - An Overview

Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to fixed dental bridges. They are designed to replace one or several teeth, restoring your healthy, functional smile. Traditional partials consist of natural-looking tooth replacements attached to metal frameworks. They connect to existing teeth using metal clasps or precision attachments. We also offer Valplast partials made from thermoplastic nylon resin. They provide a lightweight, flexible, and highly aesthetic option to fill gaps in your smile.

What Are the Benefits of Complete and Partial Dentures?

Dentures and partials offer an affordable solution to replace missing teeth. Today’s modern tooth replacements are sleeker, more comfortable, and more functional than those of the past, leaving you with a beautiful, natural smile. Your new restorations will enhance your speech and restore your ability to chew. They will also support your facial structure, maintaining your youthful appearance.

Leaving a gap in your smile can result in oral health complications. The remaining teeth may shift toward the space, leading to crooked teeth and problems with the bite. The imbalance created by even one missing tooth can increase the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain. Maintaining a complete set of teeth will enhance your oral health and quality of life.
