Four Alternatives To Dental Implants

Posted on 10/11/2021 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Four Alternatives To Dental ImplantsDental implants are an effective, long-lasting oral treatment option that helps fix tooth loss. They are one of the best innovations in dentistry. However, as much as dental implants are perfect for tooth loss, they might not be the best option for some patients. This is why it is essential to know some of the best alternatives to dental implants.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges, especially fixed ones, are excellent for tooth loss. Fixed dental bridges stay in place and don't move when you chew food. To install them, our dentists use unique bonding material to repair the bridge in place. If you want to remove them, you need to come back because fixed dental bridges can't be removed at home. However, since the dental bridges are set in place, they might function and feel like your natural teeth. You also don't have to worry about the bridge becoming loose in your mouth.

Full Mouth Dentures

Dentures are another alternative to dental implants. They are a common tooth replacement option. Complete mouth dentures are designed to replace both your upper and lower teeth. If you are missing all of your teeth, complete mouth dentures are an excellent option.

Partial Dentures

Unlike complete mouth dentures, partial dentures only replace a section of missing teeth. Therefore, they are primarily used when you still have a good number of healthy teeth in your mouth. What makes them an ideal dental implant alternative is that they let you keep your healthy teeth. They are also easy to maintain.

Dental Crowns

If dental implants aren't working for you, you should consider getting dental crowns. These oral appliances are not only ideal for tooth replacement but also help fix damaged teeth. This will go a long way in improving your smile. Get in touch with us for more information on the best alternatives to dental implants.

This Doctor is a true healer!

Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
