You have several options when it comes to replacing your teeth. Before choosing a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs, Dr. Curry Leavitt and our dental team wants you to understand what to choose from. Since we offer all types of replacement options like conventional dentures as well as All-On-4 ® dental implants, we’ll help you identify the best path to a beautiful smile.
Advances throughout the dental industry have allowed dentists to provide patients with much more options than ever in dealing with their missing teeth. Dental bridges, dental implants, custom-made dentures, dentures supported by implants, otherwise known as All-On-4 ®, are a few options.
Overcoming the Limitations of Dentures
Over the last decade, dentures have improved substantially, yet have drawbacks that cause them to feel bulky and painful for some patients. You might have concerns about your teeth slipping out of your mouth in public, with dentures. Certain foods can be harder to eat, and without the proper support from your teeth, the jaw bone might deteriorate over time.
The All-On-4 ® procedure can quickly and effortlessly addresses several of those limitations. Four dental implants are placed throughout the mouth with this procedure, each of which can hold a whole set of teeth. The implants are inserted into the jawbone with titanium posts that protect the prosthetic teeth.It strengthens the bone in much the same way as natural teeth. Implants are strong and powerful, and often give patients more faith in the way they look like their smile.
Implants are surgically inserted into your mouth so they don't move and unlike conventional dentures, can not be removed. This grants the patient with confidence because they can eat and talk in public without any issues. No more concerns about your teeth falling out when your replacement is functioning just like your natural teeth should.
