Losing all of your teeth is a distressing experience – there is no doubt about that. There are several teeth replacement options, from traditional dentures to the implant-supported denture options available at Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ.
Traditional dentures have been around for a long, long time. They are removeable appliances that can be fitted to the upper or lower dental arch. Full dentures replace all of the teeth, along with some gum tissue. They sit directly on the gums and have an acrylic base that support the artificial teeth, and resemble gum tissue.
A newer option is becoming increasingly popular: implant-supported dentures. There are several types available. What they have in common are dental implants: titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw, where they fuse with bone to provide a solid base of support.
- Snap-in removables. Like the name suggests, these snap on to the dental implants. They are natural in appearance, and much more secure than traditional dentures.
- All-on-4 Hybrid. Four dental implants anchor permanent dentures to your jaw. They look and function like natural teeth, and the implants preserve bone and facial structure. There are two types available: acrylic and Zirconia. All-on-4 Zirconia are the strongest. They don’t scratch, discolor, or wear down the way acrylic can.
