Dentures | Brentwood TN
Full Replacement of Teeth
A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be fabricated two different ways.
- A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed.
- An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
- An upper denture has acrylic, usually flesh colored, that covers the palate (roof of the mouth).
- A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue.
The teeth are made of plastic, porcelain or a combination thereof. Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically treated teeth and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit of the appliance.
Dentures over a normal course of time will wear and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.

Patient Review from Libby F
My experience with Dr. Poss and his team was truly exceptional. They always took time to listen to me and addressed my questions and concerns graciously. Drawing near the end of my treatment my teeth look beautiful and my jaw pain and headaches are much improved. I am so thankful for all the work this team put in to seeing my goals met. I recommend them to anyone struggling with TMJ. They are great at what they do and a pleasure to be around.

Patient Review from Teal H
I had a dental appointment today to get a temporary crown on. Dr. Poss at Poss Dental Designs has been my dentist for almost a year and a half. I've had several crowns done by another dentist over the years whom I'd been with since I was 18 and really liked. I started going to Dr. Poss because he's the one I chose to get my 6 Month Smile braces done by--my former dentist didn't offer that service. So . . . what's with the post about it? Well, at 7:30 tonight I received a message from him, personally, on my cell making sure I was doing okay and to let me know if I needed anything to just call. THAT, my friends, is how you do business. If you live in locally, you won't go wrong with choosing him as your dentist. I highly recommend him. Oh! And his staff is also fantastic. 🙂

Patient Review from Cody F
Moving to a new city can be stressful, but I think finding a new dentist is my least favorite part of the process. Thankfully, Dr. Poss and his staff made the entire experience joyful and very convenient. For the first time, I'm actually looking forward to coming back to the dentist!
