What can I Expect from Full Mouth Tooth Replacement?
We offer a range of full mouth tooth replacement solutions, including traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures, and the innovative All-on-4 denture technique. During your tooth replacement consultation, we’ll review your treatment options and help you to find the best solution.
A traditional denture is crafted using a gum-colored base material to support a full row of replacement teeth. The base is molded to fit against the gums, which creates suction that holds the prosthetic in place. While these traditional restorations do offer a vast improvement over missing teeth, the lack of tooth roots to provide stability for the dentures can be a serious concern. Implant-retained dentures utilize four to six strategically positioned dental implant posts to replace the tooth’s roots, recreating a closer-to-natural new smile.
Like an implant-retained prosthetic, All-on-4 dentures rely on dental implant posts to provide support for the replacement teeth. Rather than placing the implant posts across the length of the jawbone, the innovative All-on-4 denture method uses the naturally denser parts of the jaw to support the denture. This allows for more people than ever before to be good candidates for implant supported tooth replacement. Implant posts are positioned into the denser parts of the jawbone to support the full length and width of the denture.
