Dentures Can Restore Your Quality of Life

If you are missing most or all of your teeth, you may benefit from the traditional and implant­-supported dentures provided at our Germantown, Trenton, and Jackson, TN, offices. At Elite Dental Care, our team can create dentures and place dental implants under one roof in our state-of-the-art facility. During your initial appointment with one of our dentists, they will discuss each of the denture options available to you and help you decide which type will work best. We will also take your budget, oral health, and cosmetic goals into consideration when recommending a treatment solution.   

Dentures

Elite Dental Care can provide various types of dentures to meet your needs. While traditional dentures may be a sufficient solution for some patients, others may prefer implant-supported dentures for added stability. Our doctors can help you determine the best option for you.

Denture Basics

A denture is a prosthetic customized to fit your dental arch and support your cheeks and lips after you have experienced tooth loss. Tooth loss typically results from gum disease, severe tooth decay that requires an extraction, or trauma.

Dentures can give you a more youthful appearance, maintaining facial definition and restoring the natural look of your smile.

The severity of your tooth loss will determine what type of denture is best suited for your needs. Both traditional and implant-supported dentures are beneficial for patients who:

  • Are missing several teeth or a full row of teeth
  • Have healthy gums and a strong jaw bone
  • Can commit to caring for their appliance
  • Can follow a healthy oral hygiene routine

Dentures can improve both your dental function and appearance. When tooth loss occurs, your facial tissue will begin to sag and collapse. Dentures can give you a more youthful appearance, maintaining the contours of your face, and restoring the natural look of your smile. 

Choosing the Right Denture for You

Tooth loss can cause a significant decline in quality of life and increase your risk for other health problems such as gum disease and jaw recession, as well as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. For these reasons, it is important to replace your missing teeth as quickly as possible.

At Elite Dental Care, we offer both traditional and implant­-supported dentures. Depending on your needs, preferences, and oral health, we can develop your dentures in-office or send them to a lab that specializes in making customized dental prosthetics.

Traditional Dentures

Made from gum-colored acrylic with natural-looking false teeth, it will rest directly on your upper or lower alveolar ridge. Traditional dentures are held in place with suction and a mild adhesive. You must remove the appliance each night for cleaning. In most cases, your dentures will require replacement every three to six years as your jawbone continues to shift and change.

Implant-supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentureThis option requires the placement of dental implants into your jawbone. These titanium posts imitate the root of a natural tooth and hold the restoration firmly in place. Because it is permanently affixed, you do not have to worry about your denture ever slipping out of place. Although this type of denture costs more than traditional dentures, it offers more stability, provides longer-lasting results, and is better for your overall oral health.

Restorative and Aesthetic Benefits

Both types of dentures offer great functional and aesthetic benefits, making it easier for you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably. Some other advantages include:

  • Crafted to complement the natural look of your smile
  • Allow you to enjoy your favorite foods again
  • Maintain your facial structure and the natural contours of your face
  • Prevent the wear and tear of any remaining teeth
  • Improved ability to enunciate properly
