Prosthodontics, Restorative, and Cosmetic Dentistry at Bryant Family Dentistry

Prosthodontics may involve the reconstruction of a patient’s front teeth and therefore it will have a significant impact on the patient’s appearance. This is why some prosthodontics have aspects of aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry. Our dentists’ philosophy is to help a patient look better but always within the context of creating and preserving their oral health.

Restorative and Prosthodontic Services Offered at Bryant Family Dentistry in Knoxville

Bryant Family Dentistry can correct a wide range of tooth replacement and aesthetic issues. Some of these restorative treatments can include the following products or treatments:

  • Dental Implants: Implants are artificial teeth that are placed into the jawbone and function the same way as the roots of teeth. Taking care of implants is the same as taking care of natural teeth. A dental implant appears completely natural and keeps your facial contours intact by preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. An implant is one of the healthiest ways to replace a missing tooth.
  • Flippers and Removable Partial Dentures: A flipper tooth is a removable, temporary tooth replacement for patients who have lost a tooth due to disease or injury while they wait for their permanent implant. Flippers are very easy to pop in and out, which is particularly useful for keeping them clean.
  • Hybrid Prosthesis: Hybrid dentures, or fixed-detachable prostheses, are dentures that attach to four or more implants in the jaw. They have some of the benefits of implants and some of the benefits of removable dentures.
  • Implant Retained Dentures: Where conventional dental implants are one per tooth, implant-retained dentures are held in place by only four implants per arch to give them permanent stability.
  • Implant Retained Partials: Unlike traditional removable partial dentures, which fit over the gums and clasp onto neighboring natural teeth to stay in place, implant-retained partials combine the advantages of dentures with those of individual implants.
