Dentures are the traditional replacement for one or more missing teeth. Whether you need a full denture to replace an entire row of lost teeth, or a partial denture to replace one or a few missing teeth, Pierce Street Dental in Birmingham-Beverly Hills has the denture solution for you.
Dentures come in two main types: full dentures to replace all the teeth in an entire row, and partial dentures to replace one or more missing teeth. The process to fit you for either type of dentures is similar.
Once we determine that dentures are a good solution for you, we’ll measure and take impressions of your mouth that will be used to create your dentures. Then we send this data to a local dental laboratory, where your dentures are produced. Once the dentures are ready, we’ll check their fit in your mouth and make any necessary adjustments.
Dentures can be held in your mouth by a variety of methods. Partial dentures can be attached to your existing teeth with clips. Full and partial dentures can be held in place on their own via a suction seal to the tissues of your mouth or with denture adhesive. Dentures can also be permanently mounted to dental implants in your mouth.
Once they are in place, your dentures will restore the normal appearance of your smile and you will be able to eat and speak as normal.
