I Want All My Teeth Removed and Replaced. What are My Options?
Posted on 2/21/2022 by Copper Canyon Dentistry
For some reason or the other, you may find yourself dealing with dental issues that make you feel you would rather have all of your teeth removed and replaced. It could be severe tooth decay that has weakened all your teeth or an injury that left you with most of the teeth lost. Whether it is genetics, trauma, or years of neglect of your teeth, if you are fed up with the teeth you have, there is an option. You can have them extracted and replaced. There are two main decisions to make and they are - dentures and dental implants.
Dentures for Lost Teeth
If you are seeking to replace all your teeth, dentures are an option. However, these restorations are not permanent. Dentures do look like natural teeth; therefore, you won't have to worry about going out in public with no teeth. In addition, dentures are much affordable and they make an ideal choice if you are on a budget. The downside to dentures is that they are not fastened to the gums, meaning they could move and shift around. People who wear dentures complain of difficulties chewing, speaking, and eating often making them feel frustrated.
All on 4 Dental Implants
If you want to replace all your teeth, dental implants are the best solution. They act like natural teeth and help prevent jawbone erosion. So you won't have a saggy face with these implants. The All on 4 Concept is a dental implant treatment that provides full mouth tooth replacement. It is considered a unique solution because it only utilizes four posts and sometimes six to support a permanent denture or overdenture. A dentist attaches permanent dentures to the implants. So, you can eat with them, speak with them, brush with them, and sleep with them without having to worry about the dentures falling out or slipping. If you are looking to replace your entire teeth, you now know the options. Contact our dentist for a consultation to determine which tooth-replacement system to use.
