What are dentures?

At Musial Dental Center, we are committed to providing patients with comprehensive treatment options. For those looking for a less-invasive tooth replacement option, dentures may be right for you. Completely removable, dentures in Mobile, Alabama are prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Dentures are used to replace missing teeth, prevent any remaining teeth from shifting, relieve pressure on your gums, and restore your ability to eat and speak properly.

 

What types of dentures are there?

There are many types of dentures available, and Dr. Valerie H. Musial, our gentle dentist, will help you determine which kind of dentures in right for you. We offer:

 

  • Conventional Full Dentures – Used to replace all of the teeth in your smile and are worn after your teeth have been removed and your gums have healed.
  • Immediate Full Dentures – Designed to be worn the same day your teeth are removed. More adjustments may be needed with immediate full dentures than conventional full dentures as your gums heal.
  • Partial Dentures – Supported by metal framework. Partial dentures require some natural teeth to be remaining in your smile.
