Dental implants are often used for replacing severely damaged teeth. While single-tooth replacements considered simpler than multi-tooth replacements, correct prosthetic fabrication and placement are just as important for any kind of replacement procedure.
When you are looking at replacing multiple teeth, it’s important to consult with Dr. Sharma first as each person’s case is very individual, and the treatment plan will be adjusted based on the need. When multiple teeth are severely damaged and need replacing, it’s important to assess the existing bone structure and determine if any bone preservation or oral pathology procedures needs to be performed first.
With multiple dental implants, there are options to use dental implant posts, implant-supported bridges, crowns and other dental work in combination to achieve the desired outcome. Sharma Oral Surgery also focuses on Refresh Smile, which replaces a complete set of uppers and/or lowers at the same time.
One of the big complaints about dentures is the feeling of instability that have when chewing. Denture stabilization offers a solution by providing a combination of implants and dentures to anchor the dentures more securely in the mouth. Cleaning is simplified as well with the user removing the appliance at night to clean in a solution.
This is a permanent solution. Unlike normal dentures, removing stabilized dentures would require another surgical procedure.
Dentures require constant care and at times, will require replacing part or all of the set. If you need to feel better about your dentures, schedule an appointment to discuss your options.
