Today's Dentures Are Realistic & Designed with You in Mind

Dentures are natural-looking prosthetic teeth designed to restore your ability to chew and enunciate while helping you reclaim a healthy appearance. A full denture can replace your entire dental arch, while a partial denture is recommended if you have some remaining natural teeth.

Dr. Hessberger offers both traditional removable restorations and implant-supported restorations to give patients in Chicago and surrounding communities such as Niles, Norridge, and Park Ridge the most advanced treatment options.

How Dentures​ Can Benefit You

Whether you choose implant-supported or removable dentures, these restorations offer a number of functional and cosmetic benefits. Patients who visit our practice from Chicago, IL, and neighboring communities such as Niles, Norridge, and Park Ridge find that treatment can...

Make You Look Younger

A missing tooth (or missing teeth) can impact the appearance of your smile and lead to bone recession if left untreated. While implant-supported restorations can prevent jaw deterioration, all types of dentures including removable ones will give you a more youthful appearance by restoring volume to your lips and cheeks and correcting the aged look that can result from tooth loss. 

Improve Your Bite

Patients with tooth loss often have to change their dietary habits and alter their speech patterns to enunciate words correctly. Dentures can restore your ability to chew and enunciate, so you can eat a wider range of foods and speak with clarity. When you choose dental implants to support your restoration, you can eat and speak normally without worrying about your dentures shifting out of place.

Enhance Your Quality of Life

Patients with dentures experience a wide range of improvements in their personal and professional lives. When you are confident about the appearance and function of your teeth, you can feel good about speaking in public, smiling for pictures, and eating the meals you enjoy

Does a removable restoration seem like the right fit?

Here's What to Expect When You Choose Traditional Removable Dentures

We personalize every treatment plan to ensure that your dentures fit, feel, and look incredible.
We personalize every treatment plan to ensure that your dentures fit, feel, and look incredible.

Consultation

We will meet with you to discuss your goals for tooth replacement. The dentist will perform an exam and take x-rays to evaluate your oral health. After reviewing your options, we will design a personalized treatment plan.

Preparation

We may need to perform additional procedures such as periodontal treatment or tooth extractions to prepare your smile. Once your gums and surrounding teeth are healthy and strong enough to support your restoration, we will take impressions of your upper and lower dental arches. These will be used to design your custom restoration.

Design

The dentist will customize every detail of your restoration so that it fits snugly on your gums and mimics the approximate size and shape of your natural teeth. Selecting a skilled dentist like Dr. Hessberger is the key to receiving a high-quality restoration that not only looks natural but aligns properly with your bite and any remaining teeth.

Wax Model

We want you to feel confident in your results and be able to make adjustments if you feel that they are necessary. Before creating your dentures, we will let you try-on a wax model so that you can assess the fit, feel, and look of your restoration. The dentist will make any necessary adjustments and note the changes to the final design. Once you are happy with your proposed treatment, we will send your specifications to our partner dental lab. There, skilled technicians will create your restoration.

Final Restoration

The experienced lab technicians use state-of-the-art materials to craft your denture. Using photos and impressions of your smile, they will also design a restoration that matches the color of your natural teeth and properly suits the overall structure of your jaw and face. When your permanent dentures are ready, you will return to our Chicago office for a fitting. We will again make the necessary adjustments to ensure optimal fit and provide detailed instructions for future care.

How do I care for my new smile?

Maintaining and Caring for Your Dentures Tips from Our Team

If you choose implant-supported dentures, you can care for these restorations just like you would care for your natural teeth. Dr. Hessberger will ask you to visit our office every six months so that we can perform a professional cleaning.

Meanwhile, removable dentures require daily maintenance to retain their functionality and increase their longevity. We will provide detailed instructions on caring for your restorations. These generally include...

Daily Rinsing & Brushing

Remove your dentures after each meal to rinse out food particles from between teeth. Just like your natural teeth, dentures can become discolored and accumulate bacteria, so use a non-abrasive toothbrush to gently brush the teeth daily.

Soaking Overnight

Place your dentures in a glass of room temperature water or a special solution to soak overnight. This keeps the plastic gum palate from drying out and warping in shape. In general, try to keep your restoration moist at all times when you are not wearing it.

Careful Handling

When cleaning your dentures, handle them with care to avoid bending the delicate plastic base. Wash and brush over a plastic bowl or towel to prevent damaging the restorations if they accidentally slip out of your hands. 

Using Denture Cleanser

While some people use mild dishwashing or hand soap to clean their dentures, we can recommend an ADA-approved cleaner to disinfect your prosthetics. These come in the form of liquids, non-abrasive creams, or ultrasonic cleaning devices.

Regular Check-Ups

Over time, your gums will inevitably change in shape after wearing dentures. It is important to visit our office regularly to have the dentist check the condition and fit of your restoration and make the necessary adjustments.
