Barnt Green Dental Centre – Advice When all Teeth Have Been Lost
There are several different approaches to dealing with a situation were all teeth in the upper and lower jaw have been lost
- The removable prosthesis
- Dental Implants
The advantages of prosthesis on dental implants compared to conventional dentures is:
- A prosthesis mounted on an implant acts like a normal tooth
- Chewing forces on these teeth transmits to the bone preventing bone atrophy and allowing for the best fit of the prosthesis in the long-term.
- When prosthesis is implant anchored there will be no painful points of pressure.
- The pallet is not covered by a prosthetic material so that taste is not affected
