What are Implant Supported Dentures?

Posted on 10/19/2020 by Salem Dental Arts
You may be wanting to get dentures that stay in place better. For some people, loose dentures or dentures that slip can be embarrassing. If you want to make your restoration more stable, you might consider implant supported or fixed dentures. The following information can help you decide if this type of restoration is for you. Implant Supported Dentures – How They Work If you are edentulous, or have all your teeth missing in the lower or upper jaw, you may benefit from dentures supported with implants. Perhaps, you already use a removable full denture. In either of these cases, implants prevent problems with gum irritation, exposed nerves, slipping, or movement. You might say that fixed dentures enhance your lifestyle and erase worries or embarrassment. To install fixed dentures, we use, what is called, an All-on-4 approach, where 4 implants are used for a denture. The four implants are used to support a fixed denture of 10 to 14 teeth immediately after surgery. What Exactly is the All-on-4 Method? The All-on-4 technique is not considered a dental invention, but, rather, a treatment method that offers full-arch restoration and shorter placement times than other dental implants. The idea is to avoid bone-deficient areas by using angulated implants. Often, when back implants are angled into position, there is enough room to accommodate two implants in the front of the mouth. By using this technique, we can support a full set of teeth – something that can take place in only one day. The All-on-4 same day procedure can prevent further bone loss as well as the need for grafting. Would you like to experience more dental stability and feel more secure about biting or eating? If so, you may want to discuss the All-on-4 treatment further. Why not give us a call today to see how you can revitalize your smile with this popular treatment method now?...
