Dentures and Partials By Schmitt Dental Clarksville
Whether you are missing all of your teeth or have some healthy teeth left that you want to remain, Schmitt Dental can provide Clarksville dentistry for dentures and partials. Partial dentures can fill in the gaps between your natural, healthy teeth that remain, while complete dentures are for when all teeth are missing. They are held in place by adhesive or suction.
While we regularly recommend dental implants as the most stable form of tooth replacement, dentures are a great option for patients who are uncomfortable with the idea of oral surgery. Dentures and partials are both removable and do not require surgery. Contact Schmitt Dental to find out which option works best for you.

Onlays & Inlays
Our dentists in Clarksville, TN can provide patients that have a tooth in-between needing a filling and a crown with Onlays and Inlays. Sometimes a tooth is too damaged to support a filling but not damaged enough for a crown so an onlay or inlay can be the best option.
Inlays and Onlays are the same kind of tooth restoration, they just cover different proportions of the tooth. An inlay fills the space between the cusps, at the center of the tooth’s surface. On the other hand, an onlay is like an inlay but covers one or more cusps or, sometimes the entire biting surface of the tooth. Onlays restore large cavities without the use of a dental crown.
Root Canal Therapy
If you suspect you need root canal therapy don’t delay! Call your dentist in Clarksville, Schmitt Dental to save your tooth and avoid future infection. Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is a process that starts by carefully removing infected or inflamed pulp from the inside of the tooth. After this pulpectomy, the nerve is taken out of the root canal. Afterwards, the inside of the tooth is carefully disinfected and cleaned. Then the tooth is filled and sealed with a rubber-like substance. Finally, a crown is put on the tooth so it can continue to function like any other tooth. Contrary to a lot of jokes, our root canal therapy is very similar to having a simple routine filling.
You can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment at Schmitt Dental, your dentist in Clarksville.
