Fixed Teeth Vs Removable - Lexington, KY

What Tooth Replacement is Right for You?

Dentures Aren’t Your Only Option

Missing teeth leads to numerous painful and embarrassing situations and the daily struggle to live a functional and healthy life. Eating is uncomfortable and difficult. Hiding your smile is routine now. Your health is declining. If you’re in this situation, know that you have many options for replacing your teeth, and don’t need to choose removable dentures. Today, with the advancements in technology and materials, we can offer a fixed solution with full mouth dental implants to replace a full arch of teeth with a custom prosthesis that should last the rest of your life.

Our team at Bluegrass Dentistry recommends these fixed teeth in many cases, as they’re the only permanent tooth replacement solution and provide the greatest long-term advantages for your health and function. However, we understand each patient’s situation, comfort level, and budget are different and will always present you with multiple treatment plans. We encourage you to learn about your options for replacing your missing teeth at a personalized consultation or free second opinion at Bluegrass Dentistry.

Comparing Your Options

With modern dentistry, you can choose between removable dentures, implant supported dentures, and full mouth dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Understanding what you can expect functionally and aesthetically from each option can help you make a more informed decision. We’ll discuss your options more in-depth at your consultation.

Fixed Full Mouth Dental Implants

A Superior Choice for Function and Aesthetics

Only permanent, fixed full arch dental implants deliver an over 99% return to normal biting and chewing function and natural smile aesthetics, with no additional day-to-day maintenance or need for pastes or adhesives. High-quality materials used in these treatments, such as zirconia for the fixed bridge of teeth, provide optimal tooth aesthetics while having the superior strength to not crack or fracture with everyday wear. As with all our dental implant treatments, we only use implant systems scientifically proven to integrate fully with your jawbone and last for decades even under the daily force of your bite. Compared to removable dentures and even implant retained options, your best solution in terms of long-term function and aesthetics is fixed full mouth dental implants. We can provide this solution, and complete the entire treatment process, right in our office.

Total In-House Dental Implant Treatment

Our implant dentist, Dr. Seth Chambers, has extensive training and experience in dental implants, including a year-long comprehensive implant residency through BioHorizons, a world-leading implant manufacturer and pioneer of the revolutionary TeethXpress® full arch solution. With expertise in both the surgical and restorative aspects of treatment, he and our team can provide comprehensive and aesthetically driven implant treatment in one location. Our team will determine the quality of your jawbone with a high-resolution CBCT scan, then custom design your final restoration to optimize the aesthetics of your new smile as it relates to your facial features.

Once we strategically plan where the dental implants need to be placed in the bone, we can eliminate the discrepancy that often occurs when patients receive surgery separately from a specialist before having teeth restored later by a dentist. With total control of your entire treatment, planning and surgery are exact and the results are consistent and high-quality. For fixed dental implant solutions, this comprehensive in-house treatment from our experienced team will produce the best results every time and allows us to bundle treatment costs and offer 15-year warranties on all our restorations. See how we can help you restore your quality of life with permanent dental implants today!
