Dentures Vs. Implants – Smile Restoration: Scottsdale Dentist

Dentures and implants are excellent solutions for restoring a confident smile. Full dentures are removable upper and lower arch appliances that fit around your jaw bones. Negative pressure from breath stabilizes your dentures. Also, patients with full dentures can also use dental glue to keep their dentures in place. Full dentures are an easy way to restore your smile.

Partial dentures restore small areas of the mouth. They seamlessly replace missing teeth amongst natural teeth.

Implants provide a permanent solution to restoring or replacing missing teeth. Our titanium implants bind to your available jaw bone, just like the root of a natural tooth. Implants are placed in 3 parts:

  1. the implant placement
  2. the healing abutment (button) placement
  3. final crown placement

One implant replaces one missing tooth. Also, if you have full dentures, 2-4 implants can be placed on your upper and lower arch to secure them in place.
