Frequently all of your teeth may be missing either on the upper jaw, lower jaw or both. In situations like these, implants can provide very good solutions for their replacement. The main complaint of patients with complete dentures (false teeth) is that they can be uncomfortable, loose and prove difficult to effectively chew with.
In these cases there are two possibilities; the first is placing either four implants in the upper jaw or two in the lower jaw to retain the dentures. This means that the dentures can have minimal coverage as they are retained by the implants. In situations like this the dentures are very stable and secure however they are still removable (you are able to take them out and place them in when you wish).
If you wish the implants can be used to fix into place full arch bridges. These are fixed in position and span the length of your jaw, or as far back as you would like them to go.
