Full dentures replace all of the teeth from the mouth after all the teeth have been extracted. Many varieties of dentures are available. The style of denture impacts the overall look and feel that users can expect with dentures, however, comfort and appearance oftentimes concern users.

Dental Implants

While considerably more expensive than dentures, dental implants offer more comfort, added confidence, and many advantages that you cannot get with the alternative option. Dental implants look and feel more like natural teeth and do not create so many restrictions as a denture user may feel.

All on Four Implants

An all on four implant is similar to a dental implant except the teeth are placed on plates made for each jaw. The cost of the four on one implant is extremely cheaper than the costs of dental implants, giving more people an alternative to dentures.
