Dentures and Implants – Quick Guide to Replacing Teeth

Dentures and implants are both solutions for restoring your confident smile! Full dentures are removable upper and lower arch restorations that fit around your jaw bones. The negative pressure created from breathing stabilizes your dentures. Also, patients with full dentures can also use dental glue to keep their dentures secure. Full dentures are an easy and quick way to restore your smile. 

Partial dentures restore smaller areas of the mouth when you do not need full dentures. They replace missing teeth around your natural teeth and you will not be able to tell the difference!

Dental implants give you a permanent solution to replacing a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Titanium implants bind to your jaw bone, just like the root of a natural tooth, through their screw-like design. Implants are placed in a specific sequence:

  1. the implant placement
  2. the healing abutment (button) placement
  3. final crown placement

One dental implant can restore one missing tooth. If you have full dentures, 2-4 implants placed on your upper and lower arch can give your dentures better security.
