Your smile is very important to us as your dental team. We want to encourage you to replace your missing teeth, so you can have the strong oral health you desire. Getting dentures is an excellent option for replacing your missing teeth.  

When getting dentures, you have two options: partial or complete dentures. Both appliances replace teeth and offer natural-looking results, but they do so slightly differently. Partial dentures use your natural teeth as an anchor to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They attach to the remaining natural teeth on both sides of the gap. Complete dentures replace all of your teeth and suction to the roof of your mouth.

Getting dentures doesn’t let you off the hook for practicing superb oral hygiene! Every day, brush your gums, tongue, and roof of your mouth. Use a very soft-bristled toothbrush. This habit will help to remove plaque and prevent halitosis and gum disease. Be sure to remove and clean your dentures every day according to your dentist’s instructions.

If you have missing teeth, it’s time to see if dentures are the right appliance for your smile! Call Arel C Ondoy DMD at 708-535-0333 to schedule an appointment in the Oak Forest, Illinois area.
