When you need to replace missing teeth, Nashville Dental Center offers custom, affordable denture options that fit your lifestyle and your budget.
Depending on your particular needs, we generally offer one of three types of dentures in Nashville, TN for you to choose from:
Traditional Full Arch Dentures — Sometimes called “plates,” a traditional denture replaces all of your upper or lower teeth with a single prosthesis. After any remaining teeth are extracted, a mold is taken of your mouth so that the base of the denture can be customized to fit your unique anatomy. Dentures don’t just replace missing teeth; they also add fullness to your facial profile.
Partial Dentures — A partial denture makes it possible to preserve your healthy teeth and replace the ones that are missing or need to be extracted. Designed from a metal or acrylic base, partial dentures clip into place like a retainer or flipper, with custom designed pontic crowns affixed to the partial right where you need them to be.
Implant Supported Overdentures — For some people, the bone loss that’s caused after losing their natural teeth can make it challenging to keep their denture comfortably secure throughout the day. Implants add extra stability, so that the denture can rest on top of them and stay in place until it’s removed each evening. Some forms of implant dentures can even be permanently affixed so that they are only removable by a dentist. If you’re worried about dentures that slip, rock, or are difficult to eat with, then implants may be your best option.
If you need new dentures or have an older pair that need to be adjusted/relined, we invite you to contact Nashville Dental Center to schedule an exam. Our team will be happy to assist you!
