Modern denture technologies and quality materials have made today’s dentures an outstanding choice for tooth replacement. In addition, our Paducah dentist wants you to enjoy a comfortable and functioning smile that looks beautiful. Our dentures meet these criteria.

About Dentures in Paducah

Dentures are one of the oldest tooth replacement options out there, but they have changed so much in recent years that—compared with dentures from fifty years ago—they are barely recognizable. They look natural, restore chewing, and rebuild confidence. No one will guess that you’re wearing a prosthetic.

Dentures

Complete dentures are composed of restoring teeth on a gum-colored plate. This plate fits over the gums, using suction and natural gravity for surprising stability.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are similar to complete dentures, but the gum-colored plate holds only the teeth you need to complete your smile. Partial dentures also come with specialized clips for added support.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are the latest in denture technology. With this option, we use four to six dental implants and attach your denture to the jaw. Implant prosthetics eliminate the need for drugstore adhesives and dental office relines.

The Denture Process

We take impressions of your mouth and send the result to a lab we trust. Your dentures are fabricated to specification and returned to our dental office. You come in for a final fitting and adjustments, and then you are free to enjoy your new smile.

We should mention that in some cases, pretreatments may be in order. For example, extractions if you’re going with a complete denture.

When you leave our dental office, we’ll ensure you know how to care for your denture correctly, and we are always here if you have questions.
