In decades gone by, there were relatively few options when it came to tooth restoration. There were bridges and dentures, and if you needed dentures, they were full or partial - and that was about it.
Some half a million US adults get one or more dental implants installed every single year. And that number is growing steadily as more and more dental patients realize the value of implants as compared to other options like dentures and bridges.
Two of the most common methods of tooth restoration after suffering tooth loss are dental implants and dentures. But how do you know which option is right for you? And is it possible to have both implants and dentures?
When it comes to restoring your smile after losing a substantial number of teeth, some form of dentures are usually the most practical solution. After all, the costs of 10 to 20 dental implants in the same mouth would be prohibitively high for most patients. But there is still a better form of teeth replacement than simply opting for traditional dentures.
At the periodontal practice of Dr. Raymond A. Kenzik in Ormond Beach, FL, we offer a unique "Teeth Express" procedure that can replace your missing teeth with dental implants, with or without affixed dentures/bridges, in a minimal amount of time.
