Do you have an old restoration that slips around your mouth? Are you looking for a way to replace a full arch of teeth? We can help. Our dental office can create custom full or partial dentures, which can replace arches or rows of missing teeth. Dentures are dental restorations that improve the function and appearance of the smile. At 615 Smile Design Studio, we can create customized dentures for patients in Nashville, TN.
Dentures in Nashville, TN
Traditional dentures are false teeth on a gum-colored base that use adhesives or snaps to stay in place. Many patients with traditional dentures may find it difficult to eat hard, crunchy, or sticky foods. These dentures may not fully support the health of the jaw bone and gum tissue because the dentures lay on the gums. As a result, some denture patients can experience bone loss and gum problems.
Dental implants offer an alternative to traditional dentures. Implants are small prostheses made of titanium. An oral surgeon places an implant in the jaw bone to support the bite and act like a natural tooth root. Implant-supported dentures ensure that false teeth are secure in the mouth and support the surrounding bone and gum tissue.
Treatment with All-On-Four Implants
Implant-supported dentures can use four to six implants to secure an arch. Before treatment, we ensure that patients have enough jaw bone to support the implants. We will take detailed x-rays and images of the smile to find the best areas to place the implants. Each implant is placed strategically to create a functional, healthy bite. Our office will take dental impressions before implant treatment to create the denture.
We work with a local oral surgeon to place the implants in the mouth. Over 3 to 6 months, the implants will fuse with the jaw bone. Once the implants are fully healed, we finalize the denture prosthetic.
