What are my options if I am losing all of my teeth?
People who are faced with losing their teeth, usually due to gum disease and/or decay, generally have three options.
First would be conventional dentures. Pros: they are fast and cost the least. Cons: They are removable, are held in by suction, cover the roof of the mouth, must be taken out after eating and at night for cleaning.
The second option would be snap-in dentures (technically called over-dentures). Implants are placed and the dentures snap into these. Pros: they do not fall out or move around when speaking and eating (you do not have to worry about them coming loose when sneezing, etc.). Cons: they are still removable and need to be taken out after eating and at night.
Done In One Treatment
The third option would be Done In One™ (technically called a fixed hybrid). Implants are placed and permanent fixed teeth are screwed into the implants. Pros: Closest option we have to having natural teeth again. Your confidence will be completely restored, you never have to take them out, highly esthetic, teeth placed within 24 hours. Cons: none.
