"So happy to have found such an amazing dental office in my new hometown! The staff was so much fun and the procedure so painless I nearly fell asleep in the chair! The office was spotless and my appointment was right on time. Dr. Martin spent time talking me through treatment options and really listened to what I was trying to achieve rather than just telling me what I needed. Looking forward to moving ahead with my cosmetic treatments with this amazing Doctor and staff!!!"
We offer a variety of types of dentures at Bluegrass Dental, allowing us to tailor treatment to your lifestyle. Conventional dentures are one of the most common and trusted solutions for extensive tooth loss. However, you may qualify for treatment with dental implants, which can provide superior support for a permanent denture.
A traditional denture is a removable device which replaces a full arch of teeth in your upper or lower jaw. This restoration consists of a gum-colored acrylic base and artificial teeth. In the upper jaw, a conventional denture covers the roof of your mouth, as well as your gums. In the lower jaw, the restoration is shaped like a horseshoe to allow room for your tongue to rest comfortably.
Conventional dentures stay in place using a combination of natural suction and dental adhesive.
If you are missing some, but not all of your teeth, Dr. Martin may recommend a partial denture instead. Similar to a full denture, this device has an acrylic base and artificial teeth. However, it also has small metal hooks which wrap around nearby teeth to provide additional support.
Implant-supported dentures are the closest way to mimic your natural teeth and offer an unparalleled level of stability to eligible patients. Dental implants are small titanium posts which act as artificial tooth roots. Dr. Martin will assess your oral health and determine whether an implant-supported denture is right for you.
Implant-supported restorations connect to the implant posts rather than resting on your gums. Since they are fixed in place, this type of denture is more secure and will never move out of place while you are speaking and eating.
Securing your denture with implants is the best way to protect against slippage, while also protecting your bone health.
Missing teeth can affect your appearance and oral health. Widespread tooth loss can cause your facial muscles to sag, so you look older than you are. In addition, missing teeth make it harder to eat healthy, nutrient-rich foods, which can affect your health.
If you choose implant-supported dentures, you have the added advantages of increased stability and comfort. The posts also stimulate the jaw similarly to tooth roots, minimizing the bone loss that results when teeth fall out or are extracted. However, it is important to keep in mind that implant-supported dentures involve a longer treatment time and a higher initial cost.
Financing through CareCredit® is available, and our staff can fully discuss these considerations with you during an appointment at our office.
