Dentures are replacements for missing teeth. Research today says that more than 36 million Americans do not have their teeth and roughly 90% of that number do use dentures. Research also projects that number to increase to 200 million in 10 to 15 years. The single biggest cause for tooth loss is that of gum disease which is often the result of poor oral hygiene. Injuries can cause tooth loss as well as different health conditions such as cancer. A full set of dentures will replace all of the teeth in either the upper or lower arch. A partial set of dentures is when you are able to keep some of your natural teeth in the arch and the balance are dentures. The most common case here is keeping your natural front teeth and having your back teeth replaced. For either a full set or partial set of dentures they are designed to be removed every evening.

If you have either lost your teeth, or some of your teeth, or are skeptical that you may have some to be extracted, please call Dr. Dolgov at 815-939-2520. He and his staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will evaluate your personal situation and discuss if being fit for dentures is the best solution for you. Feel free to stop by our office at 498 Brown Blvd., Bourbonnias, IL 60914, if you would like to meet any of the staff before you schedule an evaluation.

The full set of dentures are a flesh colored acrylic base that sit over your gums. Fitted into this base are artificial teeth fabricated in a dental lab. A partial set of dentures introduces a metal framework allowing the dentures to be attached to your natural teeth to enhance stability.

The Procedure involved with being fit for Dentures

  • After our consultation and decision together, x-rays will start the formal process.
  • An impression is made of your gums and any remaining teeth and sent to a dental lab.
  • Any final extractions need to be completed.
  • Now wax rims will be used to measure your bite.
  • Your teeth will be fabricated to your approved shape, shade and size.
  • You will wear a temporary set of dentures while yours are being completed at the lab.
  • When finished we will schedule your final fitting.
  • We will show you how to use the adhesive to hold the dentures in place.
  • You will continue to schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor ongoing fit, comfort and wear.

The Proper Care of your new Dentures and Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene Habits

It was a painless experience to regain your smile and the self-confidence that comes with that smile. Now you need to play your role in keeping it that way. Dentures are designed to be worn every day and removed every evening. You might go through a period of adjustment with biting, chewing and speaking and we can always check the fit if you are feeling any discomfort. It may take you several weeks to even several months to become totally
comfortable.

Proper care results in a longer life expectancy:

  • Consider removing your dentures after eating when possible and rinse with water.
  • Be very careful handling your dentures when cleaning.
  • When you have removed your dentures brush your tongue, your palate, gums and cheeks with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • You mush soak your dentures every night when they are out to avoid them drying out.
  • Rinse them again when putting them back in.
  • It’s difficult to say how long your dentures will last. Your care is the foundation, but so is your health. With aging your mouth and gums will naturally change possibly necessitating a refit, a remake, a reline or a rebase. All are options depending on the condition of your dentures.

The Costs Involved with Your Set of New Dentures and the Insurance Coverage Available

The costs that will be associated with your new dentures will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. There might be a few factors that might make the pricing more complex. The dentures themselves, a full set or a partial set, the materials chosen and the number of visits. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the procedure. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our options if the budget is a driving factor in carrying out our plan. Dentures, either full or partial, are an affordable solution to returning your smile to normal.
