For some Chicago men and women, the best option may be removable partial dentures. These easily removable dentures are commonly used to replace either a single tooth or a small group of teeth. Some patients may be looking to replace a small group of teeth, but require a more stable alternative; in this instance, partial fixed dentures should be considered. More commonly known as a bridge or a crown, these dentures replace a single tooth or group of teeth for long-term, fixed results. When it comes to replacing small groups of teeth, many Chicago patients choose fixed over removable dentures because they look, feel and function like naturally growing teeth.
For those patients in need of replacing a full arch or a full set of teeth, Mamdouh Attalla, DDS in Chicago, IL will most likely suggest full dentures. Both removable and fixed full dentures are available. Oftentimes Chicago patients that have seriously damaged teeth and require immediate assistance (especially with chewing and speaking) will benefit from removable dentures. Full removable dentures are an ideal solution for some Chicago patients, but in order to remain effective, they require continued in-office adjustments for maximum results, which is why some patients choose fixed dentures instead. From start to finish, the fixed denture procedure does take longer, but it ultimately provides patients with the stabilization that removable dentures sometimes lack.
Dr. Attalla in Chicago can explain all of the benefits of each type of denture to you during your denture consultation. Dentures not only improve speaking and chewing abilities, they also enhance your appearance and increase your self-confidence.
