Full and partial dentures restore stability inside your mouth, offering a design that looks natural and healthy. We have seen the transformation as patients regain control over their lives and confidently smile again. If you want denture implants in Nashville, come to West Meade Dental.
Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and the tissues that support them. They are made to resemble your natural teeth closely and can enhance the smile and chewing function. Your dentist can make dentures from acrylic resin, metal, or a combination. The base of dentures usually covers your gums where your natural teeth used to be. This base is either transparent or flesh-colored.
In addition to restoring the ability to chew and speak correctly, dentures can also help improve the smile’s appearance. For many people, dentures offer a welcome solution to the problems caused by tooth loss.
Depending on the number of lost teeth, you will need either a complete set or a partial denture. Full dentures substitute for your whole set of teeth on the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or the entire mouth. A partial prosthetic will replace a few teeth in either arch and fit around your remaining teeth. Both types are completely removable.
Dentures can offer the following benefits:
- Replacement of missing teeth and improved esthetics
- Improved speech and chewing capabilities
- Expanded dietary options
- Support for facial structures
- Renewed confidence
It’s essential to take good care of dentures to keep them clean, and in good shape, so they can last for many years. Be sure to brush dentures daily with a toothbrush designed for cleaning dentures and denture cleaners. Soak dentures overnight in water or a mild denture-soaking solution. You can find these solutions at most drugstores. Handle dentures carefully so you don’t break them. Never try to adjust dentures yourself. Call Dr. Kisner immediately if dentures break, crack, or chip. We can usually make repairs quickly, often within the same day. If you have questions or concerns about dentures, ask Dr. Kisner, your denture specialist in Nashville, TN.
For increased comfort and stability, Dr. Kisner may recommend an implant-supported denture. With implant-supported prosthetics, titanium posts, or implants, are placed into your jawbone. Your denture then snaps onto the implants and is held securely in place. This treatment is often more stable and comfortable in the long run but is more of a complicated process to put the implants in place.
Fabrication of a denture or partial can take 2-5 visits. Everything about your prosthetic, from tooth shape and shade to smile design, will be custom-fitted to your mouth.
