Dentures offer many benefits that can make your life easier. Your Olympia Fields, IL, dentist, Dr. Vincent Oganwu of South Suburban Dental Care, can help you decide if dentures are a good choice for you.

When Dentures Are An Ideal Option

You may benefit from dentures if you're concerned about:

  • Your Appearance: Tooth loss can lower your self-esteem or make you feel self-conscious in business or social settings. Restoring lost teeth with dentures can boost your self-esteem and self-confidence. Today's dentures look more natural than ever and provide a better fit than those your grandparents may have worn. Losing all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw can give your mouth a sunken appearance that makes you look much older than you are. Dentures help support your facial muscles and improve your appearance.
  • Your Chewing Ability: Eating a variety of foods becomes impossible when you've lost most or all of your teeth. Without teeth to bite, grind, and tear foods, chewing becomes difficult. Dentures make it possible to eat a variety of foods once again and enjoy your favorite meals in Olympia Fields, IL.
  • Your Health: Tooth loss can also affect your health. If you've opted to exist on a diet of soft foods and liquids, you may not get all of the vitamins and nutrients you need for good health. As a result, you may be more prone to catch colds and other viral illnesses. Swallowing food whole can also cause problems. In addition to being a choking hazard, swallowing food without chewing it can cause an upset stomach. It's much easier for your stomach to break down food when it's been chewed.
  • Your Speech: Your teeth help you pronounce certain sounds. After tooth loss, you may notice that people have difficulty understanding you due to the change in your speech. When you replace your lost teeth with dentures, you'll find that it's much easier to communicate.
  • Your Remaining Teeth: Partial dentures reduce wear and tear on your remaining teeth. If you only chew with a few teeth, those teeth may be more likely to become cracked or broken.

How dentures from your dentist in Olympia Fields, Illinois can restore your smile.

It’s hard to be without your smile. That’s only one of the reasons why people choose dentures. Today’s dentures look lifelike and are made to last, giving you years of great smiles. Dr. Vincent A. U. Oganwu of South Suburban Dental Care in Olympia Fields, Illinois offers comprehensive dental care, including dentures to restore your smile.

So, why do people choose dentures? Quite simply, dentures are a reliable, affordable tooth replacement option.

Dentures can:

  • Improve your chewing ability, so you can enjoy the foods you love
  • Restore the beauty of your smile, so you can feel more confident, knowing you look your best
  • Enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence, so you feel better in social situations
  • Rejuvenate your youthful appearance by restoring your full facial contours

The right denture can give you back your smile. At South Suburban Dental Care, you can choose from:

  • A full denture, if you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, either upper or lower or both. Full dentures come in several different types, including:
  • Immediate dentures, which are delivered right after your teeth are removed; a conventional denture is created after your tissue has healed completely, usually at around 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Conventional dentures, which are delivered after your tissue has healed completely, typically after 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Implant-supported dentures, which combine the strength of dental implants with the beauty of a denture, which is snapped in place over the implants.

To replace several teeth, but not an entire arch, you need a partial denture. These also come in several types, including:

  • Conventional partial dentures, which are delivered after your tissue has healed, typically at around 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Transitional partial dentures, which are considered a temporary tooth replacement solution while you are waiting for dental implants to be placed.

The right denture can enhance your chewing ability, your appearance, and your self-esteem.
