What Can Be Done Instead of Dentures?

When it comes to tooth loss, dentures have long been a traditional solution. However, many people find dentures uncomfortable, inconvenient, and less than ideal in terms of aesthetics. Thankfully, several alternatives to dentures can provide a more natural and functional solution for restoring your smile. At our Charlotte, NC, dental office, we provide some of these alternatives and can help you understand the benefits they offer.

Alternatives of Dentures

  • Dental Implants: 

      • Dental implants have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry. They are titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Dental implants offer several advantages over dentures.
        • A natural appearance and feel.
        • Improved chewing and speech abilities
        • Long-term durability
  • Dental Bridges:

      • Dental bridges offer an alternative to dentures by replacing missing teeth with artificial ones anchored to the adjacent natural teeth.
        • Restoring aesthetics and functionality
        • Minimizing bone loss
  • All-on-4 Implant-Supported Dentures

      • If you’re looking for a more stable and permanent solution than traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures, such as the All-on-4 technique, may be suitable for you.
        • Enhanced stability and retention
        • Improved chewing efficiency
        • Preservation of jawbone structure
  • Removable Partial Dentures

    • Removable partial dentures are another alternative for replacing missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a metal or acrylic framework, which clasps onto the remaining natural teeth.
      • Cost-effectiveness
      • Ease of maintenance
