This video shows you how removable dentures can replace your missing teeth, while mimicking their natural appearance and restoring their overall function.

Upper and Lower Teeth Replacement in North Barrington IL

For patients requiring replacement of all teeth in the upper and/or lower arch of the mouth, removable dentures are an excellent treatment option. They provide improved esthetics by replacing the missing teeth in the mouth, and improved overall function for eating and speech.

Removable Denture Fitting in North Barrington IL

Removable dentures are a prosthesis placed in the mouth containing replacement teeth, typically mounted in a base made of a pink gum-colored resin formed to an exact fit over your existing gums. They are designed to be removable without the assistance of a dental professional.

Gum Impression for Dentures at Lakeside Dental

The process of creating the dentures begins with your doctor taking several impressions of your gums.

Mouth Prosthesis Design at Lakeside Dental

These impressions are then sent to a laboratory, where an expert technician builds a model of your mouth. The lab then works closely with your doctor to design your prosthesis using the model as a base.

Prosthesis Alignment Check at Lakeside Dental

As each phase of the design is completed, your doctor will meet with you to check for proper fit and bite alignment. It usually requires multiple incremental \”try-in\” fittings to ensure the best final result for you.

After a brief period of adjusting to the feel of the dentures in your mouth, they will begin to feel natural to you- making eating easier and your speech clearer. Once your dentures are finished and you have fully adjusted to them, you will have a removable restoration specially designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth that improves the overall function of your mouth.
