Multiple dental options can help improve your aesthetics, oral functions, and confidence in that situation. The best choice will depend on your bone structure, oral health, and preference.

Complete Dentures

These are prosthetic devices that adequately replace all of your natural teeth. They can be placed either on your lower or upper jaw sufficiently. These structures are crafted with acrylic and fitted on your teeth. Complete dentures are ideal as they help to improve and preserve your facial health. They help maintain your facial muscles and ensure you can smile confidently. These solutions are also more affordable than other dental tools in the market. Candidates who are not good candidates for dental implant surgery can opt for complete dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures

These are dentures that are supported by underlying implants. The process of Inserting them is surgical and offers better stability and improved function than traditional dentures. These dental tools provide better strength and function in comparison to conventional dentures.

ALL-on-4 or All-on-6

These implants are secured in place using four or six implants per arch. They offer better stability and comfort compared to removable dentures. All-on-4 implants are adequate for people who want a more durable solution.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges are restoration options that offer adequate aesthetics and stability for people with several missing teeth. It involves the use of implants as sufficient support for the bridges. The implants must first be secured on your jaw through a surgical procedure. Once the bridges are attached, they will likely not move, become loose, or shift from their position.

All these dental tools offer amazing results for people who have no teeth. However, you must discuss your specific needs, budget, and preferences with your dentist. A dentist will also consider your overall jawbone density and health.
