Even a single day of living with poorly fitting dentures can feel like an eternity. The discomfort of a slipping, sliding upper or lower denture can ruin your day and disrupt even the most pleasant disposition. The insecurity of speaking with a denture that clicks or slurs your speech can be humiliating.
Today, there are fantastic alternatives to traditional dentures. Many of these solutions, such as the All-on-4 alternative, can be completed in as little as a single day. You can begin to experience life with a full set of attractive and stable teeth as soon as possible.
Using the latest in dental technology and digital imaging, your oral surgeon can customize a complete smile that fits well, feels natural, and looks amazing.
The All-On-4 denture can be used to replace the upper teeth, the lower teeth, or both. In fact, the technique can be used to enhance and modify your existing denture or an entirely new set can be designed just for you.
The concept of using just four dental implants as a platform for a complete denture has proven to be successful in both the upper and lower arches. Even patients who have lost a significant amount of bone structure can still be great candidates for the procedure.
By precisely positioning a set of titanium implants into the jaw bone, your oral surgeon can create a strong and secure foundation to support your dentures. A denture that is anchored to the underlying bone rather than the gum tissue can provide you with a lifetime of comfortable chewing and confident speaking.
The permanent bond between the bone and the implants means that shifting or sliding will be problems of the past. Clicking dentures as you eat and speak will no longer be a concern. Denture adhesives, glues, pastes and gels will be absent from your shopping list since the stability of your new smile will remain constant.
