The Red Bud Dental team has the experience and credentials you should look for when considering a dentist for your dentures.
“They have a supreme human touch; I am a dental chicken, and was terrified about having to have a tooth extracted, and a whole bunch of fillings, and old orthodontic work removed, and teeth whitened, and so on. Just 4 hours and a little polish in the dental chair; my ugly trash mouth walked out of there all-a-sparkling”
Dentures & Treatment Options For Missing Teeth
Keeping your natural teeth for as long as possible is one of our top priorities here at Red Bud Dental. With proper oral hygiene and regular visits to our office, your teeth can last a lifetime.
However, we recognize that no one is perfect and that some people are more prone to forgetting to brush their teeth at night or skipping dental appointments. This will eventually lead to tooth decay and necessitate the removal of a tooth. Having a missing tooth or teeth can cause a variety of problems, so it’s always best to replace the missing teeth as soon as possible.
Removable dental prosthetics, such as a partial or full denture, are another option. A consultation with Red Bud Dental will allow you to learn about all of your options for replacing missing teeth and determine which one is best suited for you.

Custom-made dentures are made in a dental lab and designed to fit perfectly in your mouth. They replace missing teeth by fitting snugly over the gum tissue where teeth once existed.
In addition to their obvious aesthetic advantages, dentures improve the eating and speaking abilities of patients with multiple missing teeth. Maintaining a healthy mouth and gums is easier with a denture that can be removed for cleaning.
The most common types of dentures are:
A full or complete denture is an acrylic removable dental prosthesis that replaces all upper or lower teeth. Those who are missing all of their teeth in a dental arch can benefit from this treatment. The acrylic plate on the upper denture covers the roof of the mouth, and the full dentures cover all of the gum tissue where teeth once were. These dentures fit snugly on the gums or are held in place by dental adhesive. Even though they aren’t the most comfortable or long-lasting, they’re the most cost-effective option.
What are partial dentures?
One or more missing teeth can be replaced with a removable prosthetic device called a “partial denture.” They fit snugly between the teeth, filling the gap where natural teeth once stood.
For support and retention, partial dentures rely on the teeth remaining in the mouth. Compared to full dentures, they’re more comfortable. They’re also less expensive than dental implants or bridges. Partial dentures don’t prevent bone resorption and its consequences, so patients need to be aware of the long-term effects before deciding to proceed with treatment.
Red Bud Dental strives to make partial dentures as discreet as possible.

Why should I choose partial dentures?
Partial dentures are ideal for patients who want to replace their missing teeth but have a limited budget. You may be able to save money if you have dental insurance because most plans cover at least some cost of the treatment. The benefits of partial dentures far outweigh the drawbacks.
How much do partial dentures cost?
How many teeth you need replaced and the type of dental insurance you have are the most important factors in determining the cost of partial dentures. The dentist will examine your mouth and our receptionists will check your insurance coverage before giving you an accurate quote. We cannot estimate a budget over the phone. The best course of action is to set up an appointment and come in for an assessment. All of your questions will be answered at Red Bud Dental.

Full dentures that snap on to implants
2, 4 or more dental implants can be used to secure a denture.
With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy the benefits of both types of dentures in one. These dentures are removable (hygienic), but also snap onto the implants surgically screwed into the jawbone, providing excellent retention.
Snap-in dentures provide additional long-term advantages beyond the ease of eating without having to worry about your false teeth falling out. Using them prevents the normal deterioration of jawbone structure that occurs over time. An important benefit of this is that the denture won’t irritate the gums and cause discomfort.
