Ask Dr. Bibb any dental related questions.
Two or more teeth on either side of some missing teeth become the anchors for a dental appliance bridged between the natural teeth.
A full arch denture is an intraoral (inside the mouth) appliance designed to replace a complete set of teeth on either the upper or lower arch. Full arch dentures require support from your gum pad and may need dental adhesive to help lock the denture into place.
Removable partial dentures are composed of a metal framework with plastic teeth and gum areas. The framework includes metal clasps or other attachments, which hold the denture in place. Partial dentures are removed easily for cleaning.
Implants are a tooth replacement option that involves placing a new "root" into the bone of your jaw. Once this titanium "root" infuses with your bone, it can support a crown, bridge, or denture.
How long do dental implants last?
Doctors designed dental implants to be permanent. There are a few factors that may contribute to the long-term success of dental implant treatment. Such as the original quality of the surgical and restorative treatment, proper home care, and regular check-up visits to your dentist or dental specialist. Dental implant treatment is one of the most successful medical-dental field procedures, with documented success rates of over 95%. Dental implants have been around for over 30 years and have clinical research that demonstrates that dental implants will be successful throughout a patient's lifetime. By comparison, research also indicates that the average tooth supported bridge (conventional dentistry) lasts from 7-10 years and that partials and dentures are functional for approximately five years before it's necessary to replace the appliance.
