Are you missing most or all of your permanent teeth? Ask Dr. Laney Schuman about dentures in Granite City, Illinois. A denture is a removable appliance that restores your smile by replacing missing teeth. At Midwest Family Dentistry PC, we offer complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the permanent teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when one or more teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Talk to our dentist about which type of denture is right for you.
Making dentures takes several weeks and a few appointments. After our dentist decides which type of dentures are right for you, he will make impressions of your jaws and measure how much space is between them. Models will be made in the exact shape as your future denture. Our dentist will have you try on this model several times to examine the color, shape, and fit. Adjustments will be made as necessary. Once everything is satisfactory, your final dentures will be constructed. Any needed final adjustments will be made and we will send you home with your new, restored smile.
We encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dentures and to schedule your next appointment.
