It’s one thing for your keys to go missing, or to misplace your favorite shirt. But when you have missing teeth, it’s critical to replace them as soon as possible. Moreover, it’s important to understand which dental prosthetic will work best for you. In most severe cases, your New Image Dentistry dentists will recommend an all on 4 dentures in Olmos Park for the best tooth replacement option by combining dentures and dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
Past tooth replacement options only addressed parts of the teeth that were above the gum line. Thankfully, now we’re able to replace both what lies above and below the gum line. Both parts are equally important. Dental implants are small, titanium posts that mimic the root of your tooth (below the gum line), restoring the health of your jawbone. A tooth replicate (prosthetic of your choice) will then be attached to restore the portion of your tooth that lies above the gum line.
So, what are all on 4 dentures?
As the name suggests, your dentures will be anchored down by 4 implants. This may sound similar to implant retained dentures, but there are a few key differences that will save you time and money. Instead of placing more implants, your oral surgeon will meticulously place simply 4 implants in the correct places at a certain angle to anchor your dentures to your jawbone. Here are some of the benefits of all on 4 dentures in Olmos Park:
- You can achieve fully-functioning, new teeth in a short amount of time.
- Your appearance will improve—and the way you feel about yourself.
- You can eat the foods you love without reservation.
- You eliminate those health issues that are associated with tooth loss.
- You can care for your teeth as if they’re your natural teeth.
- You will enhance your quality of life.
