What Are My Options if I Want My Teeth Removed & Replaced?
While it’s more common for someone to remove and replace a single tooth or a few teeth, there are still situations where a patient will be looking to replace all of their teeth at once. If you have a long history of neglecting your dental care, have experienced dental trauma, or if you have certain genetic issues that affect your oral health, you might be able to relate. North Richland Hills Dentistry offers a few different options to restore your smile.
Traditional Full Dentures
Full dentures are probably the most popular option for people who want to replace all of their teeth at the same time. This is true for a number of reasons. For one, dentures have long been a proven restorative method, and they also happen to be one of the more affordable tooth-replacement options. Traditional dentures stay in place because of adhesives and suction. No surgery is required and the dentures can be ready in a short period of time. Every time we provide a patient with dentures, we make sure they look natural and fit comfortably so they can regain full confidence in their smile.
Dental implants are biocompatible posts which are surgically placed into your gums. They help maintain bone integrity where you previously had tooth roots. After a period of healing, the implants are used to secure your custom created tooth restoration. Dental implants can be used for each missing tooth or in combination with other restorative options, like dentures.
Another option is to get implant-supported dentures. Here a full arch of teeth is fixed in place by four dental implants. This is often seen as a better option for those replacing more than a couple of teeth. While this option is more expensive than traditional dentures, many people love how secure and natural the dentures feel.
