Fixed Teeth Vs Removable - Lewisville, TX

Lost Most or All Your Teeth?

You Don’t Have to Choose Dentures

If most or all your teeth are failing or missing, you may be considering dentures—or already wear them. In past years, dentures were your only option, but this is no longer the case! Dental implants make it possible to experience more stable teeth and a better quality of life, with solutions ranging from removable implant supported dentures in Lewisville, TX to permanently fixed full mouth dental implants. Each presents unique advantages, drawbacks, and costs, so knowing what to expect with each can help you determine the ideal solution for your teeth replacement goals. At Oral & Facial Surgery of North Texas, we always begin our dental implant consultations by asking, “What would you like to be able to do with new teeth?”

All-on-4 Is Your Permanent Solutions to Dentures

Understanding Removable and Fixed Teeth

The most ideal solution for your needs is determined in part by how you answer the previous question. Would you like to eat the foods you love again? Talk and laugh without embarrassment? Leave the limitations of dentures behind? In general, you have two different options for replacing your teeth: removable and fixed. Removable teeth can be dentures, which use your gums and adhesives for support. They’re made from acrylic and will wear over time, requiring relines or replacement. They’re often considered an unreliable solution that causes more problems than they solve. An upgrade for a removable option is implant supported dentures in Lewisville, TX.

This option combines two or more dental implants with a traditional denture that can be snapped out to clean but provides greater support for eating when in place. This denture is generally still made from acrylic and may also need repairs or replacing later. The only truly fixed solution for missing teeth is full mouth dental implants. A strong, tooth-colored zirconia bridge is permanently attached to 4-6 dental implants. This option restores over 98% of function for eating while being hand-crafted to look and feel just like natural teeth. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Richard Martin, specializes in dental implants to replace all missing teeth, with the expertise to help virtually all patients regain a better life with a new smile!
