You’ve lost a large percentage of your teeth – or possibly all of them – and now you’re not sure what you should do to fix your current situation so you can chew food and smile again. If you’d like some help deciding whether you should get traditional dentures or All-on-4® dental implants, call Advanced Dental Center at 843-627-4076 to book a consultation with us.

No matter your current situation, we can find some form of restorative dentistry option to help you regain your gorgeous grin and your powerful bite at our Florence, SC dentist office. Whether you need to replace all of the teeth in your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or you need a full-mouth reconstruction, we’ve got you covered! With our help, you may just be able to:

  • Chomp into any foods want without worrying about your oral function
  • Smile wide and proud when it’s time to say “cheese” for the camera
  • Eat a more balanced diet that includes difficult to chew foods, improving your overall health in the process
  • Feel more confident and enjoy compliments from friends and loved ones alike

We know that the price tag for major dental work can be a little intimidating, but we don’t want that to prevent you from getting the quality care you deserve and improving your overall quality of life. We accept a large variety of payment options for your convenience, including third-party financing from CareCredit. We also offer no-interest in-house payment plans and the following discounts:

  • Seven percent off if you pay-in-full with cash or check on the day of service
  • Four percent off if you pay-in-full using a credit card when you receive treatment

Your schedule is jam-packed enough as it is and it can be very stressful trying to re-work your obligations so you can fit in a dental appointment. To make booking a visit a little more hassle-free, we open earlier than many dentists starting at 8:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. We also stay late on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 7:00 p.m.

Compare The Perks Of Dentures & All-On-4 Dental Implants

If you’re going to see a dentist for a complex treatment like replacing the majority of or all of your teeth, you want to make the right call the first time. To help you figure out which treatments are best for your particular case, we will happily go over your options with you and answer any questions you have. We won’t confuse you with jargon. Instead, we’ll use approachable language to answer your questions so you can make informed decisions regarding your smile.

No matter which procedure you receive from us, we will do all we can to ensure your restored smile looks beautiful and functions as closely to your natural teeth as possible.

Even if you’ve never had them before, you probably have a general idea of what a set of dentures looks like. There’s good reason that these tooth replacement options are so common. They are tried and true and work for many types of patients. We offer a few varieties at our Florence, SC dentist office, including:

  • Fulls
  • Partials
  • Temporaries

Depending on the type that you get from us, they will likely be held in place by a special denture adhesive and some suction. To help you understand how to care for your denture, we will review hygiene habits and cleaning techniques with you.

Compared to other full-mouth tooth replacements, our traditional denture options offer many advantages. For one thing, they are possibly the most affordable full-mouth restoration available. Plus, the procedure to get a set is minimally invasive. We’ll take precise impressions of the inside of your mouth and then create your false teeth to exact specifications.

If a patient doesn’t want to get a set of traditional false teeth and they have a healthy, strong jawbone, we may recommend All-on-4 dental implants. This option is named for the fact that it can be used to replace a full arch of teeth using just four dental implants.

Granted, we can also provide dental implant dentures, but the All-on-4 method is much more affordable because we’ll only need to place four implants to provide a strong foundation for your replacement teeth. All-on-4 dental implants also offer many other perks for patients because dental implants:

  • Help prevent jawbone deterioration, so you can maintain your youthful appearance for years to come and avoid a “sunken in” look
  • Look, feel, and work just like your natural teeth
  • Do not require any special treatment to be cared for
  • Can help you regain the majority of your natural chewing power – as much as 90 percent in some cases

Regardless of which treatment you decide to get to regain your gorgeous grin and your strong bite, we’ll do all we can to ensure fantastic results.

We’ll also do our best to make your experience with us as pleasant as possible. Our professional and caring team will greet you with warm smiles and make you feel heard and valued from the moment you arrive at our Florence, SC dentist office.

If there’s anything we can do to make you feel more comfortable, just let us know. We offer a variety of amenities to help you feel more at ease, including:

  • Cold, refreshing bottled water
  • Soft blankets
  • Cozy pillows
  • Earbuds so you can listen to some relaxing tunes
  • Complimentary goodies, including toothpaste and lip balm

If we anticipate that you will experience any pain whatsoever during a treatment, we will use an anesthetic to numb your mouth before we begin working on your smile. We can also provide dental sedation options to improve your comfort and help relieve your dental anxiety. This option is especially helpful if you need extensive dental treatment and would like to get it done in as few appointments as possible.

Let us help you find the best restorative option for you, including dentures and All-on-4 dental implants, from Advanced Dental Center. Call 843-627-4076, visit our Florence, SC dentist office in person during business hours, or fill out our online form anytime.
