Candidates for All Teeth Replacement Options

 

Full mouth extractions may be necessary for various reasons. Individuals who experience excessive or total tooth loss are ideal candidates for complete tooth replacement treatments. Severe tooth loss primarily occurs because of severe infection or decay. It can also occur due to gum disease, trauma, bone loss, or abscess.

We may recommend a full-mouth extraction to prepare patients for complete dentures. The best treatment option for a patient depends on several factors, such as lifestyle choices, diet, the extent of jawbone deterioration, and budget. We can assess each patient’s individual needs and circumstances to recommend the optimal solution.

Complete Dentures to Replace Teeth

 

There are two types of complete dentures, immediate and conventional. Once a patient has their teeth removed, the gum tissue has time to heal. Then, placement of the conventional dentures occurs eight to 12 weeks after the extraction.

The creation of immediate dentures happens ahead of time. This allows us to place this type of complete denture as soon as we remove the patient’s teeth. While this option is quick, it also requires more adjustments during the healing process. Immediate dentures are only a temporary option while the laboratory creates the conventional dentures.

Implant-Supported Options

 

Besides dentures, there are implant-supported options to replace missing teeth. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported full bridges or dentures are also long-lasting. They can also be more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures. These benefits allow patients to have a more natural biting and chewing ability.

The dental implant process involves surgically inserting a titanium steel screw into the gum line and fusing it to the jawbone. Once the implant has fused, we place temporary healing caps and various connecting devices to attach multiple crowns to the implants. This completes the foundation on which we will place the new bridge or denture. Lastly, we will create and place the full bridge or denture and attach it to small metal posts, called abutments.

Other Complete Teeth Replacement Options

 

Besides complete dentures, full bridges, and dental implants, patients can also choose the All-on-4® dental implant treatment to replace their teeth. All-on-4 treatment involves the use of four implants to support a full-arch lower denture. In some cases, the upper denture may require up to six implants to support the appliance.

Treatment consists of placing two implants at the front of the arch in the space previously occupied by the front teeth. The next step involves placing the other implants on either side and at a 45° angle tilting towards the back of the mouth. Then, the overdenture attaches to the dental implants with special attachments on the fitting surface. People should contact us to find out more about our available treatments.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. Why is complete teeth replacement necessary?

A. Tooth loss can affect a person’s oral health and overall health. Missing teeth can result in the loss of bone density, drifting teeth, and further tooth loss. All this may cause a person to eat a diet lacking the nutrients needed to maintain overall health.

Q. Can children use any of the all teeth replacement options?

A. Most children are not at risk of losing most or all of their teeth. However, if a child does lose one or more teeth, there are safe replacement options. Our team can provide parents with more information during a consultation.

Q. Is one complete teeth replacement option better than others?

A. Every patient is different. There is no best teeth replacement option for everyone. However, implants are a popular full tooth replacement option since they look and feel similar to a natural tooth. Our team will discuss each patient’s best options during their consultation.

Q. How much do all teeth replacement options cost?

A. Every patient is different. The cost for any complete teeth replacement solution will vary. People should contact their insurance provider for more information before seeking treatment.

Q. What are denture adhesives and how do they work?

A. Denture adhesives are pastes, powders, or adhesive pads that people place on or in dentures to help them stay in place. Over time, bone shrinkage occurs in the mouth, causing gaps and dentures to become loose. These adhesives provide temporary relief from loose dentures
