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.View On Google
Explore Your Choices for Missing Teeth
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 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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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 RepairsTraditional 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.
"Dr. Collier Is a Perfectionist"
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.
From the time we entered into their office until we left, everyone was courtesy, friendly, and professional. We were made to feel comfortable and welcome. Dr. Collier explained everything to us like no one ever did and with patients than he answered all of ours questions and concerns.View On Google
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.
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:
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.
