My husband lost all his teeth from gum disease. He refuses to wear "false teeth". Would implants give him the look and function of natural teeth?
Dr. Monteagudo will be more than happy to talk to you about the possibility of replacing an entire arch of missing teeth with non-removable teeth (dentures) held securely in place with dental implants. In fact, the ability to be comfortable in social situations and eat properly was the primary motivation behind the development of dental implants.
Of course, our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for dentures as we now know them. The addition of dental implants will provide you with stable teeth, and, for many people, they’ll enjoy this stability for the first time in years. However, everyone is unique and presents a different combination of factors that we need to take into consideration to determine which type of implant will be best suited for them.
Another option is removable dentures that can be held in place and supported by several implants that are connected by a bar. We can also talk to you about the possibility of replacing the missing teeth with fixed or removable bridges that are anchored to five to eight implants. Dental implants are a viable and functional way to help improve your quality of life and health.
Please give us a call to arrange a dental implant consultation with Dr. Monteagudo.
- I had a root canal on a tooth that fractured and now it has to be removed. Can it be replaced with an implant or do I have to have a bridge or a partial?
- I can't keep my upper denture in place for very long without gagging. I also can't taste or feel the temperature or texture of food very well, so eating is not the pleasure it once was. Can implants help me?
