Dentures & Partials (Implant Retained)
When you think of dentures, you probably picture the removable set of false teeth you’ve seen in the movies or advertised on TV. While these classic dentures may be the go-to model that comes to mind, modern dentistry also offers different options for replacing missing teeth.
For patients looking for a solution that’s a little more permanent than traditional dentures, we offer implant-retained dentures in Aurora, IL. These dentures stay put in your mouth while locking in place to create a sturdy, stable set of teeth.
We consider implant-retained dentures more “permanent” than classic dentures because we must first place dental implants into your jaw bone before you can wear this type of denture. Dental implant posts last forever, so your ability to wear your implant dentures is completely permanent.
Here at Prairie Dental Care, we offer complete dentures and partials for you to wear with your implants. No matter how many missing teeth you have, we can create a set of dentures to complement your smile.
Our Aurora, IL dentists see patients six days a week, including Saturdays, for your convenience. If you need to communicate with us in a language other than English, we have Mandarin, Spanish, and Cantonese speakers here in our dental office.
Patients who are missing many or even all of their teeth can benefit from dentures. A partial denture allows you to retain a large number of healthy teeth while replacing multiple missing teeth throughout your smile. A full denture restores an entire arch of missing teeth, giving you back your smile and your ability to eat and chew the foods you love.

A full denture is made of acrylic, and it's designed with your facial structure and skin tone in mind, so it looks like your natural smile and provides the best fit possible. You can easily remove a traditional denture for cleaning, and it relies on a secure fit and suction to your jawbone to stay in place.
An implant-supported denture uses dental implants to secure a denture, so there is no movement or slippage when you talk or eat. Dental implants also keep your bone healthy, which give you better longevity for your denture.
A partial denture is removable and uses metal clasps to anchor to healthy teeth. It has prosthetic teeth attached to fill in the open spaces, restore your ability to eat and chew, and complement your smile.
