When you are missing all of your teeth, or if you are missing many teeth and are in danger of losing more, you may think that you’ll never smile again. Lost teeth can cause stress, anxiety, and even depression. But tooth loss is extremely common, and there are many reasons that people opt for total teeth replacement including:

When you are faced with the prospect of having to replace all of your teeth, you’ll want to seek out a leader in tooth restoration. In Las Vegas, Dr. Kevin Khorshid of ABC Dental Implant Center works with patients every day who are facing various tooth replacement issues. He’s built his practice around restoring smiles, and works closely with each patient to ensure their new teeth are beautiful, comfortable, and natural looking.
Snap On Dentures For Total Teeth Replacement
Traditional dentures aren’t the only option for total teeth replacement. Dr. Khorshid can fit you with dentures that “snap on” to dental implants. The implants hold the dentures firmly in place throughout the day and allow patients much more freedom in terms of eating, drinking, and living.
Snap on dentures require minimally invasive surgery. Dental implants are inserted into the actual jaw bone and act as anchors for your dentures. With this type of denture, you can have your new teeth by the end of your office visit – there is no wait for your final pair of dentures.
Snap on dentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures because they don’t slip or slide around the gum. They are also able to withstand more force, which means patients can eat a wider variety of food. And because the top denture doesn’t interfere with the palette of the mouth, you won’t have trouble speaking with your snap on dentures.
Traditional Dentures For Total Teeth Replacement
Traditional dentures are the removable false teeth we are all familiar with. Once all of your teeth are lost or extracted, the dentist can fit you with a new set of false teeth. These traditional dentures fit over the gums and are held in place with adhesive gel or paste. They are removed to clean and soak, and can be made from a variety of durable materials including porcelain and acrylic.
Some people shy away from traditional dentures thanks to cheesy television images of old men popping their teeth in and out, or traumatic personal experience with their own grandparents’ dentures. But modern dentures aren’t the same as the dentures your grandmother wore. They are smaller, more comfortable, and much more natural looking. They are a viable option for patients who have lost significant jaw mass due to tooth loss.
Which Total Teeth Replacement Option Is Best?
The right total teeth replacement option for you will depend on your oral health, physical health, jaw mass, and other factors. That’s why it’s crucial to choose a leader in tooth replacement with a reputation for quality patient care.
