Trusted Smile Transformations Found Here
When’s the last time you smiled confidently, ate what you wanted and lived without restrictions? With numerous missing teeth, many struggle with painful and embarrassing symptoms every day. We understand how much of a toll an incomplete smile can have on you, your loved ones and your life. That’s why we offer personalized treatment plans tailored to not only your unique functional, health and aesthetic needs, but your budget as well. Dr. Rebecca Wagner, our board-certified periodontist, has over three decades of experience providing personalized and transformative full mouth restorations—including full mouth dental implants in Chambersburg, PA.
We’re not in the business of telling you what you need, though. We want to hear your concerns and questions before educating you on your options. We encourage you to come in for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wagner but before you do, review the information we’ve laid out below so you’re more educated on your options.
Conventional dentures have advanced in recent years; the technology available now far surpasses what your grandmother had. Although we offer modern, custom-crafted dentures designed for a snug fit, this solution is usually considered short-term. Without a natural tooth root, the bone begins to recede, changing your facial shape and causing premature aging. As the bone recedes, your denture will no longer fit as firmly and you’ll either need to return for numerous adjustment visits or use denture adhesives to secure your smile. However, in the short-term, this is considered the most affordable full mouth option today which is why we’ll always discuss it during your consultation.
- Restores a complete smile
- Does not prevent jawbone loss
- Requires future realignment
- Covers the palate and hinders taste
Implant Supported Overdentures
One way to more reliably secure your smile is to receive dental implants and attach them to your denture appliance. In some cases, we can snap the appliance to each implant or clip it to a bar supported by implants. Depending on whether we’re replacing your upper or lower teeth, we may place two to six dental implants in order to ensure proper support. This solution helps prevent bone loss and restores more function than traditional removable dentures.
- Removable by your dentist
- More secure than traditional dentures
- May need to replace attachments over time
- Slows or stops bone loss
- Easier to talk and chew
Fixed Full Mouth Dental Implants
Now considered the leading solution to extensive tooth loss, fixed, full mouth dental implants offer nearly the same support and function as natural teeth. In just one day, Dr. Wagner can remove damaged or decayed teeth, provide bone grafting for added support, place your dental implants and restore your smile with natural-looking teeth. In just one day you can see the new you. Although it has the most expensive up-front costs, this solution can last a lifetime. And since they function the same, each dental implant will even replace the role of a natural tooth root, stimulating proper bone growth and maintaining a healthy, youthful facial structure. Overall, the best full mouth option is full mouth dental implants. Here’s why:
- Permanent, long-term solution
- Natural-looking zirconia bridge
- Most cost-effective in the long-term
- Secured by four or more implants for max support
- Eat the foods you want
- Speak naturally again
