About Removable Dentures
Adults may loose their teeth because of decay, bacteria, or periodontal disease, but custom dentures can restore the smile to a natural appearance. Dentures can be tailored for the entire mouth, or just some of the mouth, referred to as partial dentures. This dental apparatus, whether full or partial allow individuals to regain a natural appearance and full function of the teeth. Removable dentures allow patients to use their teeth and mouths with full function, including eating, drinking, and speaking. Because this type of denture is not anchored, these dentures can be placed for the the lower or the upper, or both, and can be removed when needed. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Aurora in Aurora, IL use qualified dental labs to produce all of our custom dentures, using only the highest materials so they appear natural.
"When I entered the office, the reception area was spotless and welcoming with its warm décor. I checked in with a very pleasant receptionist and before I even sat down, Tanya, my hygienist, came to greet me. I appreciate that the office runs on time. I was greeted by Dr. Trakakis right away as he had a major procedure coming up. He gave me the exam very efficiently. I always enjoy seeing him. Tanya got to work on my 6-month cleaning which is always very thorough. She is so warm and friendly as a professional who puts me at ease. She scheduled my next appointment while I was with her. Checkout was quick and easy. About four years ago, I came as an emergency patient but have remained with them. A wonderful team!"- S.H. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019

What to Expect
Denture treatment begins with our dental practitioner at DentalWorks - Aurora prepping the patient's mouth to be ready, which possibly could include a full exam and cleaning, as well as extractions or fillings. After the mouth is prepped, digital X-rays and molded impressions will be taken and sent to our dental lab so that the custom dentures can be created. While the real dentures are being made, our dentists will provide the patient temporary dentures to use. As soon as the new dentures are ready our dentists will fit and adjust them as needed for a long-term fit.
Removal dentures require special care instructions to keep them in proper condition. Our team of dental assistants at DentalWorks - Aurora will provide these instructions when the patient gets their dentures. If maintained, removable dentures can last for 10 years or longer. Our dentists advise patients to get annual examinations to ensure that the fit of the dentures are good.
Generally, dental insurance covers some of the cost for dentures. The total fee covered depends on the patient's benefits policy, but our accounting department at DentalWorks - Aurora will contact the patient's insurance company to gain an understanding their costs. We invite patients to contact DentalWorks - Aurora in Aurora, IL to learn more about our financing in the event insurance is not accepted.
