A dental implant is designed to replace a missing tooth while mimicking the function of natural tooth roots. They don't involve an appliance designed to sit along the gums like dentures.
There are several benefits from Poplar Pike Dental's dental implants:
- They're the next best thing to natural teeth
- They're built to last. Dental Implants are a long term solution
- They enable you to keep your teeth in your mouth - not in a cup!
- They protect healthy bone
- They help you to avoid unnecessary treatment on adjacent teeth
- They don't get cavities like natural teeth do.
If left unattended for too long, severe tooth decay, badly broken teeth or gum disease can result in the loss of most or all of your teeth. This causes functional problems. If you can't chew your food properly, it can lead to diestive problems or nutritional deficiencies. Our dentures can help.
They can also help you speak more clearly. Without teeth, your facial muscles may begin to sag prematurely, which can cause you to look much older. Dentures can correct this and make you look better. A full denture is a row of prostethic teeth created to replace each tooth along the upper or lower gum line.
Dentures are held in place by natural suction and perhaps a little denture cream. In addition to a full denture, a partial denture can also be made to take the place of one to three teeth in a row, as long as there are stable teeth on either side of the gap to hold the partial. This restorative option maintains position by clipping to other teeth in the mouth. Our team will carefully take notes about the size and shape of your existing teeth so the partial denture appliance will be made to blend into your smile.
A dental crown entirely covers a damaged tooth. It strengthens the tooth and can improve its appearance, shape, or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a more functional tooth-like shape and structure.
At Poplar Pike Dental, we want your dental crowns to look, feel, and function like real teeth. Our team uses a proprietary milling process to fabricate all of our crowns, and our careful delivery techniques ensure they maintain this anatomy when they are adjusted to fit. We can also match any available shade of tooth you desire.
By choosing a blending shade similar to the neighboring natural teeth, we can allow these teeth to "disappear," and not stand out as 'fake' or 'prosthetic' once they are placed in your mouth. Our Germantown dental crowns provide beauty, fit, and stability, along with long-term results you can depend on.
