If you have missing teeth, that can create many different problems for your mouth, teeth, and even general health. Speech impairment, chewing trouble, and embarrassment can all come from missing teeth. Full or partial dentures may be the best solution to restore your teeth and smile.
If you need partial dentures, our dentist will make sure the teeth surrounding the area to receive a denture are strong and healthy. If they’re not, he may recommend having them extracted and adding them to the denture. If you need a full denture, he’ll prep your mouth to receive it.
Once the area to receive the denture has been properly prepared, Dr. Daniel Richards will make a detailed impression of the area, from the gums to the surrounding teeth to the opposing teeth. This will let the dental lab construct the denture to function perfectly.
The technician will use the cast to made the foundation of your dentures so they will be comfortable in your mouth. Once you have them, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods as you always did.
If you have lost multiple teeth and you are interested you should consider calling Daniel Richards, DMD’s clinic in Vestavia Hills, Alabama at (205) 823-6300 to see if you are a good candidate for dentures.
