Dan’s Full Mouth Implants, Total Teeth Replacement Story

Image of Dan. Dan received the Hybrid Prosthesis, a total teeth replacement option from Nebraska Family Dentistry in Lincoln, NE.

When Dan came to see our dentists at Nebraska Family Dentistry in Lincoln, NE, he was complaining of soreness in his mouth and had a desire to extract his remaining teeth. From talking to his friends and family, Dan knew he did not want traditional dentures. Dan was looking for a permanent teeth replacement option. He wanted to have something that would look and feel like the natural teeth he used to have.

Besides wanting a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, his health was affected by his remaining infected teeth. Dan’s physician suggested removing the teeth as soon as possible to eliminate the bacteria and inflammation. Dan’s doctor was positive that removing the diseased teeth would improve Dan’s health.

Dan proceeded with the hybrid prosthesis. In his recent check up appointment, he stated: “It took about two weeks after the implant placement for my implant bridges to feel better. After two weeks, I started having more energy, and the general drowsiness was gone. I had an easier time controlling my diabetes, and my doctor confirmed it with a blood test. I enjoy eating with my new teeth, and it is great to know that I do not have to use any denture glue or have a cup to put a denture in overnight.”

Are full mouth implants better than dentures?

The short answer is, yes! Full mouth implants are better than dentures for many reasons. Three main reasons total teeth replacement options like full mouth implants are better than dentures are:

  1. Jaw Bone Preservation: Full mouth implants stimulate bone and preserve the face’s natural appearance.
  2. Stability when Chewing and Eating: Because full mouth implants are placed in the jaw bone, they offer unparalleled stability when chewing and speaking.
  3. Aesthetics and Longevity: Total teeth replacement options with full mouth implants offer superb aesthetics and can last a lifetime with the proper care.

While there are many other benefits, those mentioned above are the most vital. It’s important to know that total teeth replacement options such as the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants, All-on-6 implants) do differ from dentures. And, while dentures often cost less upfront, they typically end up costing more long-term.

Dentures need to be relined over time, requiring more frequent dental visits, often don’t fit well, which can lead to gum and mouth sores (which also require dental visits), and they need to be taken in and out of the mouth at night or for cleaning. In addition, they require messy creams and adhesives and can crack or break, typically at the most inopportune time.

On the other hand, full mouth implants act like natural teeth and don’t require creams, adhesives, relinement, or removal. They won’t crack or break from being dropped, and, as mentioned before, they can last a lifetime with the proper oral hygiene.
