Dentures in West Bend

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances that serve as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and can enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Restoring Facial Appearance

Dentures can restore the natural appearance of your face. When you lose teeth, the facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures can even improve the look of your smile and add to your overall facial aesthetics.

Improving Speech and Eating

Missing teeth can make it hard to pronounce certain words correctly. Dentures can help improve your speech by replacing the missing teeth. Eating can also be a challenge with missing teeth. Dentures can make it easier to chew food, allowing you to maintain a balanced diet.

Confidence Boost

Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of dentures is the boost in confidence they can provide. Missing teeth can make you self-conscious about your smile. With dentures, you can smile confidently again, knowing your teeth look great.

Oakbrook Dental was such a great experience. When I first stepped foot into the office, Kim and Judy had a smile on their face and greeted me so kindly. I then met my dental assistant Laura who made me feel very relaxed and calm at my visit. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment which I very much appreciate being as anxious as I am. I then met Dr. Patel who was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and she made me feel very comfortable as well. I would recommend OakBrook Dental to everyone I know! :)

The Dentures Treatment Process

Getting dentures typically involves several visits to the dentist over a few weeks. The process includes consultation, impression making, casting, fitting, and adjustments.

Consultation and Examination

The first step in the dentures process is a consultation and thorough examination with Dr. Patel or Dr. Major. During this visit, they will evaluate your oral health, discuss your dental history, and explore your treatment options. This is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have about dentures.

Making Impressions and Models

If dentures are determined to be the best solution for you, the next step is making impressions of your jaw and taking measurements of how your jaws relate to one another. This information is used to create a model denture in wax or plastic.

Fitting and Adjustments

Once your dentures are ready, you'll come back to the office for a fitting. Dr. Patel or Dr. Major will adjust and fine-tune your new dentures to ensure a natural look and comfortable fit. Remember, it may take some time to get used to your new dentures, but with patience and practice, you'll soon adapt to them.
