Dentures

What denture options are available?

Dr. Prida's expertly trained cosmetic dentists and licensed denturists provide a variety of treatment solutions for patients of all ages. From the first consultation to finished dentures, or denture adjustments and denture relining, this skilled team utilizes the highest quality materials to deliver the best overall experience. Dentures options include:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures

Licensed denturists construct all dentures on site, in the dental labs at Lake Forest Dental. This can be a great comfort and advantage since you can see your dentures as they're being made. Your denturist can adjust the fit and feel of your dentures along the way to ensure your final smile is one that's both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.


What are immediate dentures?

If you're in need of full dentures because you've lost your teeth due to decay, illness, or injury, you could be a perfect candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures mean you never have to be without teeth. Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.


Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

Visit Dr. Prida for a consultation and to see if immediate dentures are the best fit for your dental needs. They only replace missing teeth, rather than all of your natural teeth, like full dentures. the denturist or dentist measures your jaw and makes models of your mouth. 

These models allow them to build your dentures in-office, in their lab quickly and efficiently. Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and you feeling secure—all without dental adhesives.

Acrylic partial dentures are another option. On the one hand, they tend to be cheaper than metal partials, but on the other hand, they don't last as long. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.


What if I need denture repairs?

Dr. Prida and the team of licensed denturists at Lake Forest Dental can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. They repair your custom dentures or an existing set of dentures on-site.
