Not all dental practices offer them, so make sure to check whether your dentist can fit them.
I have lost nearly all my teeth, what are my options?
Dental implants are a secure way of replacing lost teeth. Each tooth gap can be replaced with an implant, meaning that your new set of teeth will be even stronger than your natural teeth ever were. However, there are some downsides to replacing all your teeth with dental implants. Firstly, a dental implant can take over six months to be fully completed, so the process of replacing all your teeth can be extremely long. Secondly, as dental implants are an extremely complex procedure, they are also expensive, and replacing an entire set can be very costly.
What other options are there?
There are other options to replace teeth. One of the most common choices is dentures. These can be easily installed, and removed, so you can have your teeth quickly replaced. Although dentures have considerably improved in quality in the last few decades, they can still show difficulties, such as gum irritation and lack of adhesion to the gums. Another option is all-on-four treatment.
All-on-four treatment is essentially a cross between dentures and implants. Four implants are created at key points in the jaw, and then an entire prosthetic row is inserted, and then secured in place by the implants. This means that there is no risk of the false teeth slipping or shifting, as they are secured into the jawbone. As the dental implants need time to become fused to the bone, you will be fitted with a temporary fixture, so you can walk out with a perfect smile on the very same day. Most dentists also offer sedation for this process. While it should be relatively pain free, most dentists understand that some patients may be nervous about undergoing such a complex procedure.
I already have dentures, but they keep slipping. Is there anything that can be done?
Dentures can be tricky, particularly with constant use over time, they can become worn and unreliable. There are many adhesives available, that provide a reliable solution to the problem. However, if you are looking for something more permanent, and something that doesn’t have to be maintained. Dental implants can be administered in order to keep dentures in place, like all-on-four treatment, and this means that you can enjoy eating and drinking, without having to worry about discomfort or movement. However, the difference is that the dentures can still be removed, unlike other dental implants. The implant provides a stable foundation that the dentures can be attached and unattached to, in order to be cleaned and maintain good dental hygiene.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified practitioner.
