For patients who are missing multiple teeth, partial or complete dentures may be a suitable treatment option to replace them. Replacing multiple missing teeth can be very beneficial for function (chewing and speech), and appearance. They prevent facial muscles from sagging and provide support for soft tissues such as lips and cheeks.
These however, will not prevent bone loss related to absence of teeth and in some cases could even accelerate the process.
Dental implants can be used as an anchor, creating stability and preventing bone loss. This will result in better aesthetic results in the long run.
