Tooth decay on multiple teeth or an oral trauma that knocks out several teeth in one area can severely hamper the function of your mouth. If the teeth were visible in your smile, it could also affect your appearance and the clarity of your speech.

One fast and efficient way to replace the presence of multiple lost teeth is to have Dr. Roy A. Smith, III fit you for a removable partial denture. This dental appliance mimics the appearance and function of the missing teeth and it is set into a pink base that matches the appearance of your gums.

Dr. Roy A. Smith, III will start the process with a thorough examination of the area to make sure the surrounding teeth are healthy and strong. If any other teeth have also been compromised by tooth decay or periodontal disease, he might recommend having them extracted and added to the partial.

Your dentist will then create a detailed impression of the area, including the corresponding teeth in your bite pattern. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your partial will be made to fit perfectly in the void between the two neighboring teeth.

If you live in the Vestavia Hills, Alabama, area and you have suffered multiple tooth loss, you should call 205-979-8070 to schedule a restoration consultation at Rocky Ridge Dental Associates.
