Traditionally, patients turned to dentures to replace missing teeth. Today, there are several alternatives to dentures available to provide more health benefits and long-term solutions for missing teeth. Dentures and dental implants can both cosmetically restore your smile, but removable dentures have some pros and cons that cause thousands of patients to turn to natural-looking, permanent dental implants.
When dentures are not fitted properly, they can slide around in your mouth, causing sores. Your dentures must be removed during eating and brushing, which can be embarrassing to have to go without teeth. Teeth implants, however, remain in your mouth at all times. Dental implants improve your eating or speaking abilities with no removable parts.
At Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery Dental Implant Experts, our board-certified oral surgeons will evaluate your smile and help you determine the right solution for your replacement teeth.
Your options for missing teeth in Las Vegas include:
Your teeth have roots that extend into the jaw bone. These roots stimulate the jaw, keeping it strong and healthy. Missing teeth results in a lack of stimulation, causing the jaw bone to deteriorate over time. Bone atrophy associated with tooth loss can be severe if left untreated, requiring costly and/or complex bone repair.
You can protect your oral health and prevent jaw bone loss by replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are the only tooth restoration option that fuses to the jaw bone, providing the necessary stimulation to keep it healthy.
Patients missing many or all of their teeth can receive a completely new smile through the All-on-4 treatment concept. This life-changing procedure attaches a permanent denture to four dental implant posts in the upper or lower dental arches. Because dental implants hold the prosthesis, your jaw bone receives proper simulation to remain strong and you can enjoy a long-term, fully functioning smile again.
Prevent jaw bone loss by choosing dental implants to restore your smile. Your investment in your oral health will last a lifetime, and you can feel confident about your smile when it is complete, feels natural, and functions normally.
