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.
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
Do You Need a Denture?
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.
Our Patient Results
Choosing the Right Denture for You
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 are an affordable option designed to replace an entire row of teeth. 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.
Dentures can give you a more youthful appearance, maintaining facial definition and restoring the natural look of your smile.
This 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.
