If periodontal disease or some form of irreparable damage has left you facing a tooth replacement decision, then we invite you to consider our dental implant solutions. Singularly, a dental implant is the foundation for an artificial tooth, but implant dentistry also affords us the flexibility to create implant-based bridges and dentures as well.
A titanium cylinder that is surgically inserted and fused to the jaw bone is known as a dental implant. With dental implants, we can create a stable foundation for single replacement teeth, dental bridges, and full dentures. Implant dentistry provides the security and comfort of a natural smile, while also providing the appropriate level of stimulation to prevent the surrounding bone support from deteriorating.
Dental implants are not designed to be removed from the mouth and do not typically require routine maintenance beyond normal daily brushing and flossing. Dental implants have also been found to be tremendously successful, boasting an average success rate of nearly 97%.
While conventional dentures are designed to rest upon the gums, All-on-4 dentures rest upon a foundation of dental implants that are surgically placed into the jaw for additional support. With precise placement, a complete row of artificial teeth can be anchored by just four dental implants.
The All-on-4 implant and denture system provides maximum support for each denture, preventing it from moving or slipping in the mouth. This option is especially beneficial for the many patients who may find it difficult to function with a lower denture due to the natural shrinkage of the jaw bone.
Thanks to revolutionary advancements in dental implant technology, the All-on-4 procedure is considered to be minimally invasive. The surgical portion of the procedure is incredibly precise, requiring very few incisions and an accelerated healing period. Most patients are able to chew with their new teeth by dinnertime on the same day that the surgery is performed.
