Comparing Fixed Teeth Vs. Removable

In general, you have two options for replacing your teeth: fixed and removable. You’re aware of dentures, which is the bottom tier of tooth replacement. These artificial teeth are set on an acrylic base that fits over your gums. They return minimal function and will eventually become loose and ill-fitting as your jaw changes shape. A functional upgrade, implant supported dentures in Charlotte, NC are stabilized by two or more dental implants and consist of a removable acrylic denture that may crack or fracture over time. Full mouth dental implants consist of a fixed prosthetic bridge of teeth supported by four dental implants. This solution, known as All-on-4, restores over 98% of natural function with teeth precision-crafted to look, feel, and function like the real thing. You can eat without limitations, enhance your quality of life, and talk, laugh, and smile confidently! We encourage you to consider all your options, then schedule a consultation to receive an evaluation and personalized treatment plan.

A Streamlined Treatment Process

Our treatment process is straightforward and efficient. You’ll first complete a personalized consultation and evaluation with our implant dentist in Charlotte, NC. Next, if necessary, you’ll undergo preparatory treatments like tooth extraction, bone grafting, or gum disease therapy to establish proper oral health and a strong foundation for new teeth. As a fully digital practice, we utilize state-of-the-art virtual planning software to map out your dental implant placement with extreme precision and accuracy. We complete your dental implant surgery right in our office at the utmost in quality, safety, and comfort.

Your implant surgery is exacting with help from guided technology and will be completed in just a few hours while you’re comfortably under sedation. In many cases, we can provide a provisional or modify your denture at the time of surgery, so you’ll have functional teeth as you heal. When this recovery phase is complete, your final set of teeth will be precision-crafted to meet your exact specifications to optimize long-term function and aesthetics. Once this restoration is attached to the implants, you can experience better function, greater confidence, and a better quality of life—for life!
