Fixed Teeth vs. Removable - SAN FRANCISCO, CA

Comparing Your Full Arch Solutions

Dentures Aren’t the Only Option

Missing most or all your teeth? In years past, your only option was removable dentures but with the emergence of dental implants, this is no longer the case. Based on your situation, you may actually have 2-3 different solutions you can pick to meet your preferences, goals, and budget! Your main teeth replacement options today include dentures, implant supported dentures and full mouth dental implants in San Francisco, CA. All these solutions involve extracting any remaining teeth and replacing them with a new set of teeth that are either removable or permanently fixed in place. Each of these solutions has different benefits, drawbacks, and price points, and it’s important to know what to expect with each process. Our team at Implants Pro Center© is experienced in providing all these teeth replacement solutions and will help you choose which option best fits your situation and goals.

Defining Fixed and Removable Teeth

You’re most likely aware of at least one removable teeth replacement option: dentures. These artificial teeth are glued to an acrylic base that rests on your gums and will provide a 20% return to normal function. You’ll need adhesives to keep dentures in place, but over time as your bone shrinks, relines or replacements will be necessary to maintain the same stability. A more secure removable option is implant supported dentures in San Francisco, CA. These “snap-in” denture teeth may still rest on the gums but are stabilized by two or more dental implants. They’re removable for cleaning and will provide about 60% of natural function but can still crack and fracture. Full mouth dental implants are a fixed zirconia tooth bridge permanently secured onto 4-8 dental implants. This option restores over 98% of function with teeth that are incredibly strong, durable, and life-like. We generally recommend full mouth dental implants for patients who want to experience a quality of life comparable to having a full set of healthy natural teeth.
