If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, our comfortable team at David A. Rice, DDS can help you find the restoration procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for complete or partial dentures or dental implants.
A removable replacement for missing teeth, dentures can be made in advance and positioned as soon as the natural teeth are removed. Our David A. Rice, DDS dental lab creates dentures that look just like natural teeth: attractive, healthy teeth.
If you still have some healthy, natural teeth, you can benefit from dentures without having your healthy teeth extracted.
Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures can prevent natural teeth from moving. Many Elgin dental practices can complete these procedures in one day.
Many dental insurance providers cover most or all of the cost of dentures. Call us at David A. Rice, DDS and we can help you find out if your Illinois dental insurance covers dentures.
Another alternative for Elgin people with missing teeth is to receive dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants have many advantages, such as preventing jaw bone recession which can occur when natural teeth are removed. However, not all Elgin dentistry patients are good candidates for implants. Call David A. Rice, DDS at 847-741-2353 for a dental implant consultation.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor a removable denture. The denture is ‘snapped on’ or attached to the implants for no-slip confidence.
The combination denture/implant smile restoration solution is being used successfully by many Elgin dentists. It is usually more affordable than dental implant replacements for several natural teeth.
Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health, improving your ability to eat and speak. If you are embarrassed to smile or laugh, it’s time to bring back your beautiful smile!
