We know that your teeth play a major role in your facial appearance and overall personality. Missing some or all of your teeth not only affects your looks, but also hampers your ability to speak and eat with ease. At the office of Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry of Tennessee, we offer a number of restorative treatments for missing teeth. One of the most widely used of these is dentures.
Dentures are prostheses made of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. They can be used to replace a few missing teeth or a full arch of missing teeth in the mouth. The result is a natural looking, high quality prosthetic that is comfortable and effective.
Dentures come in the partial and full variety (depending upon whether some or all of your teeth need to be replaced).
Fixed dentures consist of a bridge that is supported by implants. The implants act like roots for your replacement teeth giving you a more stable, fixed structure that is more like natural teeth. The process is also known as denture stabilization. Fixed dentures provide great fixation and support to help you smile, chew and speak naturally.
Fixed dentures also prevent deterioration and shrinkage of the jawbone, helping you to maintain your natural facial shape. These are a great option for people who have lost most or all of their teeth and are looking for an easy, long lasting replacement.
Our mission goes beyond just replacing your teeth - we strive to give you a well-fitting, well-functioning and comfortable denture. To know more about how dentures can improve your oral function and smile by replacing your missing teeth, please call our office at (865) 483-2356.
