What are the Benefits of Full Mouth Tooth Replacement?
There are so many reasons why replacing missing teeth is important. No matter what tooth replacement solution you choose, simply replacing the lost tooth structure can change every aspect of your life. Some of the many benefits of full mouth tooth replacement include:
- Confidence – without healthy teeth, you may find yourself hesitating to talk to friends, hiding your smile in family photos, and simply sitting quietly while everyone around you engages in lively conversation and smiles with ease. Replacing missing teeth allows you to stop hiding your smile or lack thereof.
- Health – without teeth, you will likely find yourself struggling to eat nutritious meals. When teeth go unreplaced, you may notice changes to the shape and structure of your whole face. Overtime, these changes in nutrition and function are detrimental not just to your oral health but your overall health.
- Well-being – replacing your smile will restore your overall sense of well-being and allow you to maintain optimal health and function as well as looking and feeling your best.
- Comfort – it’s no surprise that full mouth tooth loss can be painful and replacing your teeth to restore function can help to relieve discomfort and renew your oral health.
What Full Mouth Tooth Replacement Options are Available?
The most basic full mouth tooth replacement option is the traditional denture. These tooth replacement prosthetics are composed by crafting a gum-colored base to support a full row of replacement teeth. Without surrounding teeth to offer support, a traditional denture is formed to fit against the gum line, creating suction that holds the denture in place. These traditional tooth replacements can typically only renew about 20% of healthy tooth function, and many patients find them uncomfortable. In most cases, we will recommend a dental implant supported denture. We can provide a traditional implant-retained denture or an All-on-4 denture.
A basic dental implant-retained denture uses between four and six dental implant posts to replace missing teeth and support your denture. The implants are spaced out over the entire jaw line to offer stability for all parts of the denture.
An All-on-4 denture uses implant posts to stabilize a denture by maximizing the already denser parts of the jawbone to support the full denture. Rather than placing the implant posts along the jaw, the posts are positioned to fuse with the densest areas of the jawbone by changing the direction they are placed in.
