Our dentist and dental team at The Chicago Family Dental Center are pleased to provide our patients with several options for tooth replacement. One of the options we offer is dentures. Dentures are removable oral appliances designed to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. There are two main types of dentures, and we offer both kinds at our office to meet all of your smile’s needs. The first type, a complete denture, is used when all of the teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both have been lost or removed. A complete denture sits on top of your gums, and you may also use a denture adhesive to provide further stability.

The second type of denture is called a partial denture, or sometimes simply a “partial.” A partial denture is used when some of your natural teeth still remain. The partial denture uses a thin framework or clasps to attach to the remaining natural teeth.

Both complete and partial dentures in Chicago, Illinois, are made of materials that are comfortable and aesthetic. We are committed to helping you restore your smile’s function, beauty, and health after tooth loss.
