Anyone with regular dentures knows that eating a steak or biting into an apple is always risky because the dentures in the jaw may slip and slide as they lose their attachment to the gums.
A great solution to this is to have your denture securely attached with dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures lock the denture in place, providing the peace of mind that comes in knowing dentures will not slip when eating or speaking in public. Dr. Thompson also offers other options besides that of implant supported dentures, such as partials and standard dentures.

Dentures are sets of artificial teeth that are worn on either the mandibular or maxillary arch. Though most dentures are removable, many are anchored to dental implants, bonded directly to an individual’s gums, or clasped to existing teeth. While they greatly enhance the appearance of any individual who has lost a significant portion of their original teeth, dentures also serve the purpose of enabling their wearers to chew most of the same foods they enjoyed previous to such losses. As they return the inside of a mouth to its original form, dentures also improve speech by restoring the natural flow of air during vocalization.
Though popularly associated with the elderly, dentures are often the ideal choice for any individual who has lost the majority of their teeth in any one region of the mouth. As each person’s mouth is both shaped and sized differently, however, they must be fitted to specific patients. For a Murfreesboro dentist who is experienced with preparing a patient for dentures as well as versed on all the latest techniques and materials that have made modern examples far more durable, attractive, and therapeutic than those which existed in the past, anyone who suffers from the discomfort of heavy tooth loss should feel free to contact our offices. Everyone on our staff, after all, understands the importance dentures can play in not only restoring someone’s chewing ability and appearance, but also in enabling that person to speak with the same degree of articulation to which they are accustomed. The dentures we fit, however, can be counted on to convey the same warmth and friendliness that our patients once revealed to their friends with their natural smile. Restoring every smile, ultimately, is the goal of our practice, and so we’re happy to talk to anyone who is looking for a Murfreesboro dentist for regular check-ups, teeth cleaning, or other essential dental services.
