Enjoy a Varied Diet Again With Dentures

Dentures in Crown Point aren’t the newest way to replace missing teeth. Still, they remain popular, and for good reason. They are:

  • More affordable than some other teeth replacements
  • Less invasive than dental implants
  • Useful for replacing anywhere from a few missing teeth to an entire mouthful of teeth

We offer multiple options, including temporary dentures and implant-secured dentures. To find out the best dentures for you, call Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC at 219-641-3422.

Choose New Teeth That Fit Your Needs Best

Depending on your smile goals, your budget, your oral health, and the number of teeth you’re missing, you have many dentures options here to fill the gaps. They include:

  • A Removable Partial Denture – If you have several missing teeth, we can create a removable partial denture attached to your natural teeth or to teeth modified with dental crowns.
  • A Fixed Partial Denture – Avoid taking your teeth out to clean them each day by getting a partial denture that only your dentist can remove.
  • Full Dentures – Replace a whole mouthful of missing teeth with full dentures that can be attached to dental implants for a firm hold, a strong bite, and better long-term oral health.

Our dentists at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC can also fit you for temporary dentures before your teeth are removed. You can then wear them while your final restoration is being fabricated. This allows you to eat and enjoy normal oral function while your mouth heals.

Anchor Your New Teeth To Implants For Better Comfort & Stability

One of the newest ways to wear lifelike dentures is securing them with dental implants. Aside from being able to ditch adhesives, there are other benefits. Your dentures will be:

  • Stable – Because these dentures are attached to dental implants, you won’t experience embarrassing slippage. They also offer bite power similar to that of your natural teeth.
  • Comfortable – Instead of sitting directly on your gums, attaching them to implants make them more comfortable to wear.
  • Better for Your Jawbone – Implants stimulate your jawbone much like natural tooth roots do, so you won’t lose bone density the way you can with traditional dentures.

Common Questions About Dentures

Who would need dentures?

Dentures may be what you’ve been looking for if you’re missing all or nearly all your teeth on your upper or lower jaw. Traditional complete dentures replace a whole arch of teeth, while partial dentures are utilized when you still have some natural teeth remaining. Dentures can even be anchored to a set of dental implants for ideal function and stability.

What are dentures made from?

The price point of your dentures will mostly determine what they’re made from. It is common to use acrylic for the base of the teeth (the part that looks like your gums). It will be laid over a metal framework for extra strength. The teeth are made from either porcelain, which looks the most natural, or acrylic composite because of its light weight and lower expense.

How long does it take to make dentures?

Our team will take impressions that we will use to design your customized dentures. Aesthetic results are just as important to us as functionality, which is why we will make sure your new teeth work and fit precisely and that your smile looks natural and attractive.
