Can You Replace All Your Teeth?


The short answer is yes. If you are missing all of your teeth, there are a variety of tooth replacement options available to accommodate every lifestyle and budget. With more than 25 years of respected experience, board-certified prosthodontist Dr. John R. Phelps has helped thousands of patients enjoy strong, healthy, beautiful smiles, and he can help you, too.

Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants

Simply put, dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. There is no tooth-replacement option that is more lifelike or durable than a dental implant. More than just a replacement for teeth, dental implants are secured into the jawbone, beneath the gums, replacing the tooth root. A tooth restoration is then placed on top of the implant. Not only does a replacement tooth root anchor the new tooth in place, it also prevents bone loss.

Dental implants:

  • Replace the entire tooth, from root to crown
  • Provide maximum stability
  • Are permanent tooth replacements
  • Restore a strong bite and attractive smile

As a board-certified prosthodontist, Dr. Phelps has extensive experience in the field of implant dentistry. During your initial consultation, he will conduct a thorough examination and determine if dental implants are right for you.

Replacing Teeth with Dentures

If you are looking for an affordable, natural-looking smile, dentures may be your ideal solution. Modern dentures are more attractive and durable than ever, specially crafted just for you. Dr. Phelps takes pride in creating dentures that are comfortable, natural-looking and functional.

Depending on your goals and budget, dentures can be removable or anchored to dental implants. No matter which option you choose,  dentures offer a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Natural-looking smile
  • Improved facial appearance
  • Balanced bite
  • Improved speech
  • Restored self-confidence

During your initial consultation, Dr. Phelps will carefully examine your teeth and gums and recommend the denture option that is best for you and explain all of your treatment options.
