We offer custom, natural-looking dentures for our patients who may be missing several or the majority of their teeth. Many people who have experienced extensive tooth loss often feel self-conscious, have difficulty chewing or talking, and may even have noticed changes to their facial structure as a result. At Shön Dental, we want our Springfield IL patients to look and feel their very best. We offer both full dentures and partials to help you enjoy your daily activities and regain your confidence.
Some people may feel reluctant to get dentures because they worry they’ll look fake; fortunately, dental technology has come a long way, and today’s modern dentures look incredibly natural. Using the latest state of the art equipment, our dentists are able to create beautiful, custom fit dentures that will restore your mouth function, provide facial muscle support, and help your cosmetic appearance. We offer bridges (dentures partials) for patients who may only be missing a couple of teeth. These are removable and are held in place by attaching to the nearby teeth.
For patients who may be missing most or all their teeth, we also offer full set dentures. These are a complete set of removable prosthetic teeth that are held in place with adhesives or suction. Full set dentures can be supported by mini dental implants as well, which can hold them more securely in place than adhesives. This option is generally placed in the lower jaw, as bottom dentures tend to be less stable in the mouth, but it can be used for both upper and lower dentures. Patients who have strong bone structure are the best candidates for implant-supported dentures.
We also offer dental implants for Springfield IL patients who would like a more permanent replacement for missing teeth. If you’ve experienced bone loss, we may be able to build up the bone to support an implant with a bone grafting procedure. As a full-service dental office, we do all procedures in-house, so you’ll never have to go anywhere else. From general dentistry to restorative and cosmetic procedures, our dentists are committed to improving your smile and quality of life.
