Lebanon Tennessee Dentist Launches New Website for Denture-Wearers

LEBANON, TN--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Dr. Russell Kirk, an experienced Lebanon dental implant dentist, has launched a new website devoted entirely to helping patients who are struggling with loose or uncomfortable dentures.

The new website,, provides helpful information for patients through email sequences and videos. The new website launched earlier in May.

“Most people who wear a lower denture think they are stuck with a life of adhesives. We are excited to offer a chance for them to be happy with their smile again or give them the opportunity to eat the foods they want again,” Dr. Kirk said.

Dr. Kirk uses dental implants to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. Dental implants have about 90 percent of the biting power of natural teeth. After the implants are restored with crowns or beautiful new dentures, patients can eat the food they want again.

“Our patients have been thrilled with the options we are presenting. The staff is very excited. We've been doing this for quite some time, but this is the first time we've promoted this directly to the public,” said the Lebanon dentist.

Dr. Kirk’s practice, Tennessee Implant & Oral Surgery, offers wisdom tooth removal, dental implants, bone grafts, soft-tissue grafts, biopsies, IV sedation and general anesthesia. The practice specializes in dental implants, including immediate-load implants like All on 4 dental implants. Dr. Kirk and his staff work in a 2,800-square-foot facility located on the University Medical Center campus. The state-of-the-art office includes an iTero digital scanner and cone beam CT scanner, both of which are used for the placement of dental implants.
