Some instances may require a patient to have a complete dental extraction. All of the teeth must be removed, for possible reasons like gum disease or advanced tooth decay. When a patient must have all of his teeth removed by the dentist, he will talk about the different options that can restore the tooth loss. These options will include dentures and dental implants near Kendall.
Dentures have been used by humans for hundreds of years. In recent years, technology has advanced so that dentures are customized to the patient’s mouth and teeth, which makes them fit more comfortably and look like natural teeth.
In addition to dentures, patients may also have the option of a dental implant procedure. To restore total tooth loss, dental implants will be surgically implanted into the jawbone. After the patient’s gums have healed, the implants will be able to support implant-compatible dentures. These dentures will fit securely against the patient’s gums, allowing easier chewing and talking.
