How Implants Help
Implants have been an invaluable addition to what we can do in restorative dentistry. As replacements for your missing roots, implants anchor your dentures in place. This also creates a direct connection from your jawbone to your replacement teeth.
This allows your new teeth to function more like real teeth, too. With implants, your dentures will remain securely in position. That means you can speak and smile without any worries that your teeth may move.
Maybe more important than that, you also can bite and chew naturally when you have implant-supported dentures. Research has shown that people with traditional dentures regain about one-fifth of their biting power. In contrast, people with implants can get back 90 percent or more of their bite force. That makes a difference when you’re trying to bite into an apple or corn on the cob or a piece of steak cooked just the way you like it.
How All-on-4 is Different
As the name suggests, this procedure allows you to secure your dentures with just four strategically-placed implants. To ensure your implants go exactly where they should, we use 3-D imaging technology to assess your jaw health and plan your placement procedure.
When you get many implants, you need to wait to heal before your dentures are placed. With All-on-4, we can place a set of temporary dentures on the same day you get your implants. That means you’ll leave our office with a natural smile. You will be able to eat some foods that day as well. As you heal, you will be able to eat more and more foods.
As a result, you will have a great understanding of what you can eat when you are ready for your permanent dentures.
Keeping You Comfortable
Whether you get All-on-4 or a more standard implant procedure, you can feel confident that you won’t feel anything during your procedure. We offer multiple dental sedation options, including IV sedation, to keep you relaxed and pain-free.
