About Removable Dentures
Adults may loose their teeth because of oral 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 - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL use high quality dental labs to produce all of our custom dentures, using only the highest materials so they appear natural.
"I chose DentalWorks because of the wonderful reviews that I read online. Dr. Patel is my dentist. He's kind and sensitive to the needs of the patient. I told him "I want my smile back...". With that, he devised a plan that I agreed to and have already gotten started on. Besides my initial visit for consultation and xrays. I've only had three visits to date. But I can truly say, I had "NO PAIN!" (Just pinch that come with deadening the gums which they treat first with a solution)Dr. Patel explains what he's doing as he works through the procedure. I couldn't tell a tooth had been extracted. I had several extractions and several fillings so far. When Dr. Patel comes in the room, he greets you and make you feel comfortable and tells you a lil about the procedure he's about to do. The cost for my plan is quite $$$... to have everything done. But in the end, its going to make me not only look better, but feel better about myself and that makes it worth it! The staff and assistants are very professional, kind and just nice people.Thank you, Dr. Patel for being kind, fun and putting me at ease during my visits. I'm happy I chose DentalWorks."- G.V. / Google / Jul 14, 2018

What to Expect
Denture treatment begins with our dental practitioner at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop 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 dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop will provide these instructions when the patient gets their dentures. If kept, removable dentures can last for 10 years or longer. Our dentists advise patients to get annual check-ups 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 - Chicago Loop will contact the patient's insurance company to gain an understanding their costs. We invite patients to contact DentalWorks - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL to learn more about our payment options in the event insurance is not accepted.
