In our opinion, dentistry today sits on a three-legged stool: Restoration / Repair, Prevention and Appearance.
We hate to break it to you, but even if you brush and floss regularly and visit your dentist as recommended, the chances are good that you will need a filling at some point in your life.
If you have a cavity that needs to be filled, Nashville cosmetic dentist Dr. Brian Devine can repair the damage and install a beautiful, functional, tooth-colored filling. Also known as a composite filling or a white filling, a tooth-colored filling will be matched to the shade of your other natural teeth, making your new restoration indistinguishable.
Dental crowns help restore teeth back to their normal shape and size and add durability to prevent the tooth from extraction. The outer layer of a crown is made of porcelain so that it blends in with your natural teeth. Crowns sometimes have metal on the inside to add durability and strength. There is also a non-metal option as well, which would be an all-porcelain crown – most often used on front teeth.
If you need a dental crown in Nashville, Devine Dentistry can restore your tooth with a beautifully made, custom crown.
Forget what you think you know about dental crowns and how long it takes to receive one from your dentist. The Nashville cosmetic dentists at Devine Dentistry offers Same Day Crowns, using chairside technology to install a beautiful, fully-functioning crown in a single office visit.
Known as one of the most cutting-edge tooth replacement option available, dental implants can replace your missing teeth and provide you with a stable, secure, and comfortable bite. No other tooth replacement option out there looks and functions more like a natural tooth than a dental implant. Want to have a complete smile again, one that makes you feel confident? Ask your Nashville dentists at Devine Dentistry if you are a candidate for dental implants.
Are you missing a tooth? Tired of hiding your smile or experiencing difficulties when chewing due to your lost tooth or teeth? These are common complaints among adults who are missing one or more teeth. Whether you want to replace a tooth you had extracted years ago or are about to have a tooth extracted, a dental bridge may be an option for you.
The mention of a root canal is enough to make you clench your teeth. We get it, it is scary, but we are here to inform you of everything you need to know and how we can make your experience as pleasant as possible. Here at Devine Dentistry, we love dentistry, and we love serving you! We are all about delivering a dental experience that is focused on meeting your needs in every aspect of your care.
Living with lost teeth is more than just inconvenient. It affects your ability to eat and chew, limiting your dietary options and likely hindering your nutrition. Over time, living with lost teeth increases the likelihood of oral health threats such as gum disease, which could lead to even more tooth loss. Regain your smile and your ability to chew by receiving a beautiful set of dentures from your Nashville restorative dentists at Devine Dentistry.
The Nashville dentists at Devine Dentistry believe that it is important to make every effort to prevent tooth loss. Sometimes, however, it is in the best interest of the patient to remove a tooth. In these instances, we can perform an extraction.
The temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to your skull. When there is any sort of dysfunction or misalignment in this joint, it causes a disorder known as TMJ or TMD. Millions of individuals suffer from this disorder, which often includes chronic and debilitating pain that impedes the ability to function.
If you suffer from this disorder, the team of professionals at Devine Dentistry can provide lasting relief through our neuromuscular dentistry program.
Do you clench and grind your teeth at night? This is known as bruxism, and it can cause significant damage to your oral health including your teeth, and jaw joints. You may not even be aware that you have this issue, but there are certainly telltale signs of bruxism.
A dental emergency can leave you with a great deal of worry and even pain.
There are common reasons why you may need emergency dental care including:
- Avulsed tooth (knocked out)
- Filling falls out
- Loose filling or crown
- Broken tooth
- Dental trauma
- Pain in gums
- Swollen jaw
- Object caught between teeth
- Facial trauma that injures mouth or jaw
Removing wisdom teeth is the most common type of surgical tooth extractions performed in the entire field of dental science. At Devine Dentistry, our Nashville dentists have the skill and experience in oral surgery needed to make any extraction procedure involving wisdom teeth as convenient and comfortable as possible.
At Devine Dentistry, we believe that prevention is your best defense against potential oral health problems. In many cases, having preventive care will save you time, money and discomfort by avoiding costly dental repairs down the road.
Maintaining a high level of oral health does more than just protect your teeth and mouth. Bacteria in the mouth can spread through the bloodstream and accumulate in the arteries of the heart. Recent medical research also suggests a possible link between oral health issues such as gum disease and life-threatening conditions such as stroke and high blood pressure.
At Devine Dentistry, your local Nashville family dentist offers top-quality oral health care to patients of any age. We take special pride in our program of pediatric dentistry, which aims to set up each of our young patients for a lifetime of good oral health.
Remember, as parents and guardians, you are responsible for helping your children be as healthy as possible, which includes not just their bodies, but their mouths, too. Concerning their oral health – that means teaching them proper brushing and flossing techniques, while also encouraging good oral habits. Your children will mimic your behavior, so it is essential that you remain diligent about your own oral care.
Are your gums puffy, red, or bleed easily? If so, then you may be suffering from gum disease, an infection that affects the hard and soft tissues of your mouth. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to major oral health problems, while also threatening your overall health.
Your local Nashville dentists at Devine Dentistry have a dedicated program of services to provide both diagnosis and treatment of this potential threat to your health and well-being.
If you or your child engage in sports or sports-related activities, you are more likely to suffer from damage to your teeth. Nearly one-third of dental emergencies are a direct result of a sports-related injury, according to the ADA. Resolve to protect your teeth by wearing a custom-made sports guard by your Nashville dentists at Devine Dentistry.
Help reduce your child’s risk of cavities by opting for sealants. Your Nashville family dentist at Devine Dentistry offers sealants, which adds an additional barrier against tooth decay and cavities.
What are sealants?
Sealants are a plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surface of the bottom back teeth, specifically the molars and pre-molars. These areas of the teeth have deep grooves and pits, which are difficult to keep clean. Plus, these are perfect areas for decay-causing bacteria to lurk. By filling in these areas with a sealant, your child’s risk of tooth decay in these specific areas is lessened.
Do your family or roommates complain about your loud snoring?
Are you constantly tired, no matter how many hours of sleep you get?
If so, then you could suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, a serious sleep breathing disorder that greatly hinders your ability to rest and even can jeopardize your overall health.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: partial dentures and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain and complete dentures are used to replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth, so there should be no noticeable change to appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve a smile!
Complete Dentures – This restoration method is used to restore smile and mouth function if all teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created and natural looking. They are fit in the patient’s mouth to take the place of the original teeth. Complete dentures are generally removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
Partial Dentures – A removable partial denture is used when one or more natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jaw. Made of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, partials help restore better functionality to the mouth. As with complete dentures, it is possible to have more permanent option cemented into place.
Do you suffer from dental anxiety, dental phobia or a pre-existing condition that makes it difficult to receive professional oral care? Devine Dentistry is here to help, providing sedation dentistry through the use of nitrous oxide.
As part of our commitment to providing comfortable care for our patients, Devine Dentistry offers sedation dentistry to patients in the Nashville area. While we also offer nitrous oxide as means of relaxing patients for their procedure, sometimes a more powerful form of sedation is needed.
