I am so pleased with my implants. Dr. Collier is excellent and has great bedside manner.  His staff and his assistants are awesome.  He wanted everything to be perfect even if that meant having an extra visit.  I was very impressed with his credentials when I was doing my research for an implant specialist and I’m glad that I chose Southern Dental Implant Center.

Explore Your Choices for Missing Teeth

Our Cordova practice offers multiple options for patients in Memphis and the Mid-South Area. 
Dentures

Traditional Dentures

Removable, traditional dentures are made with a gum-colored base and artificial teeth crafted to look like natural teeth. The dentures simply rest on your gums and are held in place with suction and a dental adhesive. Southern Dental Implant Center uses advanced technology to ensure a comfortable, precise fit. Our attention to detail can give you a smile you are happy to share and a functional bite that will allow you to eat with confidence.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are the closest thing to having your natural teeth back. Unlike traditional dentures that you remove every night, implant-supported dentures stay in your mouth and are cared for just like your own teeth with brushing and flossing. They are held in place by dental implants, small titanium or zirconia posts placed in the jaw. The denture is then securely attached to the posts, eliminating any risks that they will slide or fall out.

Partial denture

Partial Dentures

If you aren't missing all your teeth, partial dentures might be the right choice for you. Compared to complete dentures, which restore a full arch of teeth, partial dentures can replace one or more teeth in each row. Our custom-tailored partial dentures usually include gum-colored bases and are held in place by clips that attach to neighboring natural teeth. Another option is to use dental implants to replace missing teeth throughout the mouth. Implants can support a crown (for a single tooth) or a dental bridge for places where more than one tooth is missing.

What Are Dental Implants? 

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is placed directly into the jaw bone to serve as an artificial tooth root. Atop this post, a dental prosthetic - such as a crown, bridge, or denture - can be secured to serve as the artificial tooth. Quite simply, dental implants provide the most stable, long-lasting, and durable solution for missing or severely damaged and decayed teeth.

Do You Lack the Bone Density for Implants?

Do you want the security that implant-supported dentures offer but have been told that you lack the bone density needed to support a full denture?

You may have another option. The All-on-4® method is a newer technique that uses just four implants and requires less bone density to qualify as a candidate.

The dentists at Southern Dental Implant Center near Memphis have advanced training in this revolutionary technique and can determine if it's right for you.

All-on-4 implants

Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

While today's traditional dentures offer a secure fit and are more affordable, many patients value the conveniences and long-term health benefits that implant-supported dentures offer.

Healthier Jawbone

Unlike traditional dentures, which accelerate bone loss, implant-supported dentures encourage your body to replenish the bone in your jaw and keep it strong.

A More Secure Denture

Implant-supported dentures will never embarrass you by slipping or falling out while chewing or speaking. They also offer a stronger bite than removable dentures.

Greater Comfort

As your jawbone deteriorates and recedes, your traditional dentures will no longer fit correctly. That will cause them to rub against your gums and cause pain.

Fewer Repairs

Traditional dentures will need to be repeatedly relined or replaced, but the reason isn't just because of wear and tear on your dentures. Without the stimulation of a tooth root or dental implant, the bone in your jaw will shrink and your denture will simply no longer fit the new shape of your jaw.

I’ve had quite a bit of restorative dentistry in past 10 years, and couldn’t be happier with the outcome
Dr . Collier is a perfectionist when it comes to making things look great. He has always made sure that I was 100% satisfied with the work he performed.

The Dentures Crafting Process  How We Create Custom Dentures at Our Memphis Practice 

Don't let missing teeth dictate your life. Restore your smile and confidence with dentures. 

Steps

Don't let missing teeth dictate your life. Restore your smile and confidence with dentures. 

Consultation 

We begin every treatment with a consultation to make sure that dentures are the best fit for you and will take care of your dental needs. Our dentists will also look for any hidden oral health issues that need to be addressed before we can craft your dentures. 

Impression

Once we determine that dentures are the best treatment for you, we will create an impression (model) of your mouth to shape the dentures. Using an impression allows us to craft dentures that fit the unique dimensions of your mouth for a comfortable and natural-looking smile.  

Initial Fitting 

Before creating your dentures, we’ll have you try on mock-ups to see how well they fit. We’ll also check to make sure the color and shape of the dentures match your natural gums and any remaining teeth. 

Crafting 

Our master craftsmen use premium acrylic to create your dentures over the course of a few days. We hand-finish our dentures and other dental restorations to ensure the quality and design of each device meets your standards. 

Final Fitting 

After your dentures have been made, we’ll have you try them on to test their fit. Please note that your mouth may need some time to get used to the new dentures. We’ll schedule follow-up visits to check on your progress, and we can always make adjustments. 

Are You Hesitant?

Deciding on dentures for the first time is a big step. If your remaining teeth are in good condition, we might recommend bridges or dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore your oral health. But if you've reached the point where dentures are a better option, we can help you make the transition and regain confidence in your smile.

You can talk to our dentists at length about dentures during a consultation, or you can call our Cordova office at:

Denture Maintenance 

Taking care of removable dentures is relatively simple and best paired with good hygiene practices. You should brush your dentures daily and give them a deeper cleaning each night. 

Avoid using normal toothbrushes, toothpaste, and hot water on dentures; they can damage or warp the material.

Soak your dentures in warm water or a dedicated cleaning solution each night, and then rinse them in the morning before putting them back in. 

When removing or cleaning your dentures, have a towel or other soft material ready to cushion their fall if you drop them. 

Brush your remaining teeth, gums, and tongue at least twice a day to keep them healthy and prevent bacteria buildup. 

Ask our dentists which cleaning solutions and adhesives are compatible with your specific type of dentures. 

If your dentures break or don’t fit as well as they used to, contact our office immediately. We can repair or replace your dentures for a more comfortable fit.
