Start Smiling Again With Dentures in Lexington, KY
Dentures have been around for thousands of years, and it’s no wonder. They are a reliable tooth replacement. Traditional dentures are also less invasive and more affordable than some other kinds of replacement teeth. In more recent years, people have begun using them with dental implants, which makes them feel and function more like natural teeth.Great solution to your missing teeth Read Transcript
So when people need to lose all their teeth or all their teeth are gone or they are edentulous or have a terminal dentition, a lot of people just immediately think that they need dentures. And while dentures can be a great service there are also many shortcomings to dentures. So with the usage of dental implants, we can get a much better solution for patients than just a traditional denture that comes in and out that will greatly increase quality of life, ability to eat, chew, smile, and so forth. So a lot of patients aren't aware that we have the ability to oftentimes, working with an oral surgeon, to sedate that patient, remove any remaining teeth that need to come out, place implants and immediately screw in a new set of teeth so that the patient goes to sleep and wakes up with a full fixed arch of teeth.
Patients are just blown away by that experience and what ability we have to help them. So if you feel like you need teeth out, all of your teeth out, or already have an existing denture that is ill-fitting or uncomfortable or you're just not pleased with it, give us a call and we'll be happy to talk about what options are available for you.
With or without implants, they will:
- Fill out your face, so you look younger.
- Make it possible to chew food.
- Give you a full smile again.

One of our Lexington dentists will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your smile goals and needs, then review all your tooth replacement options with you.
Implant Dentures Function More Like Natural Teeth
Traditional dentures sit on your gums, kept in place by suction and adhesive. Attaching replacement teeth to dental implants keeps them more securely in place. This offers several advantages, including:
- No Need For Adhesive – Since implants are embedded in your jaw, replacement teeth will stay in place without adhesive when they are attached to implants. They won’t slip or shift in your mouth.
- Better Bone Health – Implants act like natural tooth roots, stimulating your jaw when you chew food. This avoids the bone loss that occurs over time in the absence of tooth roots.
- No Irritating Friction – Dental implants remain securely in place, so they don’t rub against your gums.
- Better Fit Over Time – Without bone loss in your jaw, dental implant dentures don’t need to be adjusted for fit as often as traditional dentures do.
Consider Traditional Dentures Options
If dental implants aren’t for you, you can get traditional dentures instead. You can choose full or partial dentures. You’ll get full removable dentures if all or most of your teeth are missing. If you have just a few teeth remaining, our Lexington dentists can comfortably remove them. If you still have quite a few teeth, you may want to get partial dentures. Ours are designed without a metal clasp to give you a more precise and comfortable fit.
