Dental Implants Vs. Dentures & Bridges | LADD Dental Group

Implants versus dentures and bridges
"Dental implants are increasingly becoming a popular alternative to dentures and bridges. Compare the options and see why: Tooth-supported fixed bridge. The most common alternative to dental implants for a single tooth, fixed bridges involve grinding away – in other words, intentionally damaging – healthy adjacent teeth that are used to attach and support the bridge. The tooth-supported bridge does not stimulate natural bone growth beneath it, so the bone may deteriorate over time. Bridges generally fail after 5-10 years because patient have difficulty flossing them, which makes the root surfaces below and around the bridgework highly susceptible to decay. 
Removable partial dentures. Although these don't require grinding down adjacent teeth, they are not nearly as stable or comfortable as dental implants and can affect speech and eating. This type of restoration is less expensive but doesn’t look as natural or function as well as an implant…

Alveoloplasty | What is Alveoloplasty


Alveoloplasty is a dental pre-prosthetic procedure performed to smoothen or reshape the jawbone.

Fitting for dentures. If you're missing teeth and are being fitted for full or partial denturesalveoloplasty may be necessary to ensure a snug fit on the gum. Bumps and ridges in the bone can cause gaps between the denture and the gum. 

Healing for the Denture

The dentist will provide you with temporary immediate dentures as the gum tissue heals. Once the tissues are fully healed, the time is right to add dentures to your mouth. In general, it usually takes between six and eight weeks following the tooth extraction for dentures to be placed. However, each patient is unique.
