Serving Brentwood, Belle Meade and Green Hills Areas of Nashville TN
Thanksgiving usually means food and getting together with family and friends. However, if you are living with missing teeth, you may not be able to enjoy that big turkey dinner. You also may be hesitant even to speak with family and friends, because you are self-conscious about the gap in your smile. Now for the good news. If you are looking to replace missing teeth in Nashville, you can have a smile you can be thankful for, courtesy of the implant dentists at Devine Dentistry.
A dental implant represents the finest tooth replacement option currently available
A dental implant looks and feels more like a real tooth than any other treatment option in restorative dentistry today. What sets apart an implant from other tooth replacement treatments is the implant screw itself. Usually made of titanium, this screw is inserted surgically into the jawbone, where it serves to replace the tooth root. Once you have healed from the implant placement procedure, the implant is completed by placing a dental crown, which your Nashville implant dentists at Devine Dentistry can match to the shape, color, and size of your other natural teeth. If cared for, a dental implant can last for the remainder of your life. It is easy to maintain; just brush and floss an implant the same way you would your other natural teeth. Dental implants also are fixed in the mouth, meaning they will not slip like other tooth replacements, such as economy dentures. Implants also have a high success rate—upwards of 95 percent, in fact.
Implant dentures represent a significant upgrade over traditional denture technology
Forget what you think you know about traditional dentures: unnatural looking replacement teeth that are notorious for irritating the gums, slipping in the mouth, and limiting your food options. These dentures are supported by dental implants, placed strategically in the mouth to anchor and stabilize the arch of replacement teeth. And, at Devine Dentistry, the replacement teeth themselves are made with the same care as other restorations at our Nashville dental office in Green Hills.
If you are interested in implant dentures in Nashville, your dentists Dr. Brian Devine and Dr. Russell Mack will construct them in accordance to neuromuscular dimensions, looking to maintain or even improve the alignment of your bite.
If you have lost many teeth, or have teeth that are failing, it would be too expensive and time-consuming to receive a standard dental implant to replace each individual tooth. Luckily, implant dentists operating at the forefront of the field like Devine Dentistry offer the All-on-4 implant system in Nashville, which replaces an entire dental arch of teeth in a single day. The All-on-4 treatment consists of an entire dental arch of replacement teeth, which are secured by four dental implants that are installed at strategic locations in the mouth.
Unlike implant dentures, the arch used in the All-on-4 system is fixed permanently into the mouth. To maintain them, just brush them like you would normal teeth.

Restoring your smile is about more than boosting your confidence. When you replace lost teeth, you regain your ability to chew and pre-empt other potential oral health conditions, including teeth shifting out of place, gum disease, and the loss of other teeth.
