Northside Kenosha Dental offers a unique denture service experience. The practice has an in-house lab and technician, allowing for denture delivery the following business day from your initial appointment. Patients can expect a quality, custom-fit denture at a very reasonable fee. Once the dentures are inserted, sore spots can be expected when the patient initially starts wearing and chewing with it. Dr. Lakayil and Dr. Walsh will make adjustments as needed at no additional cost to relieve the sore spot areas.
Anyone who has had dentures knows just how difficult it can be to get a denture set that not only looks good, but feels good too. This is why Northside Kenosha Dental patients have the opportunity to give their input every step of the way to ensure that they are satisfied with the aesthetics and fit.

A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be fabricated in two different ways.
- A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed.
- An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
- An upper denture has acrylic, usually flesh colored, that covers the palate (roof of the mouth).
- A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue.
Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically-treated teeth and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit of the appliance.
Dentures over a normal course of time will wear and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.
