Prepare Your Arch for Dental Implants
In certain circumstances, patients may be recommended by their general dentist to have their remaining teeth removed for various reasons. These may include severe and generalized decay, periodontal disease, or the amount of dental work needed to restore the remaining teeth would be next to impossible.
The options to restore missing teeth include prostheses such as dentures or more stable solutions involving dental implants. Traditional dentures can work well but are known to be unstable and uncomfortable for many people. Dental implants can be used in a variety of ways to stabilize the new teeth. The main options include removable dentures, fixed dentures (hybrids), or fixed crown and bridgework.
Depending on the option that you, your dentist, and your surgeon choose, many times the implants can be used immediately, either that day or the following day, as long as the implants are solid. Although these cases require a significant amount of coordination between yourself, your dentist, your surgeon, and a dental laboratory, they can provide the overall best treatment for a dentition that is failing and restore function and esthetics.
