Full Mouth Restoration Types
Typically in a full mouth restoration or a smile makeover, the patient has little to no remaining natural teeth.
Today, less and less people are opting for traditional dentures. Although they are easily removable, which can allow your gums to rest after a long day, many patients find them uncomfortable. Further, dentures are secured to your gums with a gooey paste which can be difficult to use. Many Houstonians are now opting for dental implant supported full mouth restorations.
Implant Full Mouth Restorations
A popular alternative to dentures is full mouth restorations with implants. In this procedure, between 4 and 8 implants are placed in your jawbone. Then, the implant abutment will attach to a dental bridge to another implant abutment. This creates the seamless appearance that you have a beautiful and natural full-set of teeth. Typically, dental implant full mouth restorations are permanent solutions, unlike dentures which are removed on a daily basis.
