Non-Removable Replacement Teeth in Monroe, LA
Do you have one or many missing teeth? If you think that a removable bridge or denture is the only solution, visit Bayou Dental Group today. Monroe, LA dentist Dr. Finley is an experienced dentist who provides non-removable replacement teeth as a better alternative to traditional dentures.
What are Non-Removable Replacement Teeth?
Non-removable replacement teeth are fixed restorations anchored by dental implants. A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root made of titanium. This small screw is embedded into the jaw and allowed to fuse with surrounding bone. Replacement teeth are then attached to the dental implant.
Unlike removable dentures that require adhesives to stay in place, non-removable replacement teeth can only be removed by your dentist. They provide the best comfort and stability, and they look and feel exactly like real teeth. Your dentist in Monroe offers:
All-on-Six is a non-removable teeth replacement method that uses only six dental implants to support a full set of upper or lower replacement teeth. Instead of using one implant per tooth, All-on-Six takes advantage of existing bone to provide maximum stability.
The All-on-Four method uses only four implants to support permanent teeth replacement of the upper or lower arch. Because fewer implants are used, this method is relatively more affordable than traditional implants.
Mini Dental Implants
What is a mini dental implant? Mini dental implants are about half the size of regular implants. Because they are smaller and skinnier, they are also less expensive than full-sized implants. Dr. Finley can use mini implants to stabilize bridges and dentures.
The cost, method of implant placement, and type of implants used depend on several factors. Considerations include the quality of bone at the implant site, the number of teeth to be replaced, your goals, and your budget.
