Your Options for Teeth Replacement After Oral Cancer

From the tongue to tonsils, many structures in the mouth can develop cancer. After beating cancer, many people will have lost at least one tooth. If that describes you, then see Dr. Parviz Roshanzamir at Wall Centre Dental about dental implants and other replacement options.

Dental Implants

Implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth because they replace the entire structure of the tooth. The implant itself is a small post that goes in the jawbone while a crown or bridge goes on top of it. They look and feel completely natural, and you will be able to brush and floss your teeth like normal. Many implants last a lifetime as long as you maintain a good oral healthcare regimen. In the event you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, you can use All-on-4 implants. You only need four implants in the jawbone, and the replacement teeth will be placed on top.


Dentures have been in use for centuries, and they are still a viable option for replacing teeth. Dental technology has come a long way, so your dentures will look natural. You will be able to eat a wider array of foods, and you simply need to remove them at night. You can also look into implant supported dentures where dental implants and dentures work in tandem to give you your old smile back.
