Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are small titanium posts designed to replace missing teeth while mimicking the function of natural tooth roots.
Benefits of dental implants from Germantown Dental Group:
- Next best thing to natural teeth
- Built to last. Dental Implants are a long term solution
- Keep your teeth in your mouth – Not in a cup!
- Protect healthy bone
- Avoid unnecessary treatment on adjacent teeth
- Implants don’t get cavities
Types of Dentures in Memphis & How They Work
A full denture is a row of prosthetic teeth created to replace each tooth along the upper or lower gum line. They’re held in place by natural suction and perhaps a little denture cream.
We can make a partial denture to take the place of one to three teeth in a row, as long as there are stable teeth on either side of the gap to hold the partial. To keep this restorative option in place, we’ll attach it to other teeth in your mouth.
Dr. Whittemore and Dr. Gruen will carefully take notes about the size and shape of your existing teeth so the partial denture appliance will be made to blend into your smile.
Full or partial dentures can replace multiple missing or lost teeth. If left unattended for too long, severe decay, badly broken teeth or gum disease can result in the loss of most or all of your teeth. This causes functional problems. Because you can’t chew food properly, it may lead to digestive problems or nutritional deficiencies.
Dentures also make speech clearer. Without teeth, the facial muscles begin to sag prematurely, which makes you look much older; dentures can correct this problem and improve your appearance. A full denture is a row of prosthetic teeth created to replace each tooth along the upper or lower gum line.

A partial denture can be made to take the place of one to three teeth in a row, as long as there are stable teeth on either side of the gap to hold the partial. As opposed to temporary solutions like denture adhesives dentures give you a restorative option that will maintain position by clipping to other teeth in the mouth.

How Do Dental Crowns in Memphis Work?
A crown entirely covers a damaged tooth, strengthening it and improving its appearance, shape, or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a more functional tooth-like shape and structure.
At Germantown Dental Group, we believe dental crowns should look, feel, and function like real teeth. We use a proprietary milling process to fabricate all of our crowns, and our precise delivery techniques ensure they maintain this anatomy when they are adjusted to fit. We can also match any available shade of tooth you want.
By choosing a blending shade similar to the neighboring natural teeth, we can allow these teeth to “disappear,” and not stand out as 'fake' or 'prosthetic' once they are placed in your mouth. Our crowns in Memphis provide beauty, fit, and stability, along with long-term results you can trust.
