Dentures Let You Enjoy Favorite Foods Again

Dentures aren’t the newest way of replacing teeth. But they remain popular, and for good reason. They are affordable and less invasive than some other tooth replacement options. And they can replace anywhere from a few missing teeth to an entire mouthful of teeth.

We offer multiple denture options in our Crown Point, IN dentist office, including a temporary denture and a denture attached to dental implants. To find out if they are right for you, call Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC at 219-641-3422.

Different Dentures Fit Different Needs

You can get partial denture if you still have some of your own teeth. They can be:

  • fixed, meaning only a dentist can remove them
  • removable, so you can take them out for cleaning or other reasons

We can attach fixed a partial denture to your natural teeth or to teeth modified with dental crowns. They can also be attached to dental implants with no adhesives needed!
A full denture replaces a whole mouthful of missing teeth. Like partial denture, they can be attached to dental implants. If so, you won’t need to use denture adhesive to keep them in place.
Our dentists at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC in Crown Point, IN can also fit you for temporary denture before your teeth are removed. You can then wear a temporary denture while your final denture is being fabricated. You can eat and enjoy normal oral function while your mouth heals.

Implant-Supported Dentures Offer Benefits

One of the newest ways to wear denture is securing them with dental implants at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC in Crown Point, IN. Again, this means you won’t need a messy adhesive. There are other benefits too. Your dentures will be:

  • Stable. Because they’re attached to dental implants, you won’t experience embarrassing slippage. And they offer up to 90 percent of your natural bite power.
  • Comfortable. Because they are attached to implants instead of sitting directly on your gums, they are more comfortable to wear.
  • Better for your bones. Implants stimulate your jawbone much like natural tooth roots, so you won’t lose bone density the way you can wear the traditional denture.
