Teeth Replacement Options
Whether you have lost one or many teeth, there are a number of treatment options available to get you smiling again. No matter your situation, we are committed to finding the best tooth replacement option for you.
If you’re looking for tooth restoration services, there are a couple of options for you to choose from. Dentures and full-mouth dental implants are both options that offer different pros and cons. While full-mouth dental implants often make the most sense from a health, financial, and long-term standpoint there are other treatment options to be aware of before making a decision. Learn more about each below.
Full-Mouth Dental Implant
The full-mouth dental implant is a full set of upper or lower teeth that are permanently attached to dental implants. Depending on your oral health, gum tissue, and bone density, anywhere from 4 to 8 implants are placed on the bottom and/or upper arch and the permanent teeth are attached to the implants. You will not be able to remove the teeth – they are designed to only be removed by a dentist. Full-mouth implants are the best option for replacing an entire arch of teeth and offer many benefits, including:
- Natural feel. Minimal movement makes this option the closest feeling to your natural teeth.
- Greatest function. Get back your full biting and chewing ability.
- No limitations. Enjoy—and taste—your favorite foods without worrying about whether or not you can.
- No pain. Never have pain from root canals, crowns, or extractions again, or deal with taking your dentures in and out each night.
- Permanent. Make one investment in full-mouth implants for a forever-functioning, beautiful smile.
- Avoid other issues. Prevent bone loss, premature aging, and facial sagging.
Traditional dentures have been around for centuries, making them a well-known option for tooth replacement. While they can look nice and offer a simpler solution to teeth loss, they have some major drawbacks. Dentures can be difficult to eat with due to the constant moving around. Due to the roof of the mouth being covered, many people experience loss of taste and temperature sensations.
While we specialize in full-mouth dental implants for those seeking a permanent solution to their oral health struggles, we also understand that dentures are the right option for some patients.Dentures vs. Full Mouth Dental Implants
