Even though you’ve been dealing with missing teeth for a while, you’re still not a fan of your dentures. They wiggle, interfere with your speaking abilities, and make you feel self-conscious when you kiss your sweetheart – and, you can’t remember the last time you are an apple, corn on the cob, or a caramel. You’re tired of being limited, but since you have a whole row of missing dentitions, what other options do you have aside from traditional dentures? With All-On-4 dental implants in Spring from Family Dental on Louetta, you can bring back the winning smile you once had.
What Are All-On-4 Implants?
As your premier implant dentist in Spring, Dr. Kelly LeBlanc explains that All-On-4 implants are a revolutionary type of implant-retained dentures that allow patients to have a completely upgraded smile in just one day.
What Is The Process For All-On-4 Implants?
We’ll start the process of implanting four posts in your jaw that will become the secure foundation for your snap-in dentures. After the posts are in place, you’ll receive your upgraded artificial teeth, put them in, and get ready to start showing off your secure new smile.
How Many Teeth Can You Replace With All-On-4 Implants?
This type of implant-retained denture is specifically designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. If you need fewer than a whole row of teeth, talk with Dr. LeBlanc about single implants or implant-retained dental bridges to get the best of both worlds in your restorative treatment.
What Are The Benefits Of All-On-4 Implants?
With this superior snap-in smile, you get the benefits of both dentures and implants. You’ll enjoy the following smile rewards:
- A stay-put smile that won’t wiggle when you talk.
- An end to messy dental adhesives.
- The ability to eat all your favorite foods.
- A natural appearance that allows you to smile confidently.
- Increased jaw bone density, rather than bone loss from traditional dentures.
- A removable option, which allows for easy cleaning and prevents gum disease.
- A long-lasting, durable solution that can last a lifetime with proper care.
How Do I Care For All-On-4 Implants?
To maintain your implant-retained dentures, take them out at night and soak them in a solution of gentle denture cleanser and water. Be sure to rinse these off well before placing them back in your mouth. Brush gently around the abutments (the connecting parts that link the implant posts to your denture) with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste. See your dentist for regular visits and be aware that you may need to replace the clip or attachment parts for your denture about every six-twelve months, since these wear out with regular use.
Now that you know how All0On-4 implant-retained dentures can benefit you, schedule your appointment with Family Dental on Louetta to restore your smile to its former glory!
