Can I replace all my teeth with dental implants?
Yes, of course, you can replace all of your teeth with dental implants. In addition to functioning like natural teeth, dental implants are stable and designed to last a lifetime. Keep in mind, dental implants are versatile, so there are a variety of ways to fully restore your teeth with them.
- Individual dental implants: individual crowns are made and secured to each implant. They aren’t connected to other teeth and you brush and floss as normal. The process for a full mouth of dental implants can take months as the jaw bone and implant must fuse together before a crown is placed.
- All-on-4 implants: a denture is permanently attached to four angled implants, these can be done in a single day and are more affordable than traditional full mouth implants.
- Implant-supported dentures: a prosthetic denture snaps into implants and rests on the gums. They are removed nightly for cleaning and are the most affordable option.
Every method has a different process and cost, you’ll want to talk with your dentist to learn what treatment option may be best suited to your needs and your budget.Back to Implant Placement
