Dentures are the traditional approach to replacing a complete arch of lower or upper teeth. However, this solution is not ideal for all patients due to several potential factors. Problems that make dentures uncomfortable or impractical may include gum irritation, dentures that become too large for the mouth due to bone loss, or difficulty eating.
To address these problems, Gold Hill Dentistry may recommend implant-supported dentures. Using dental implants, a full set of prosthetic teeth are fixed securely in place. Your dentures will no longer slip or rub freely against the gums, allowing you to smile, speak and eat without fear of embarrassment.
While many patients do not experience problems with the general fit and comfort afforded by removable dentures, adjusting to the messy feel and taste of the adhesive can still prove challenging. Additionally, cleaning removable dentures requires extra steps and it is entirely possible to leave them at home in a rush.
All-on-4 Implants are a revolutionary way of looking at full dental restorations. The innovation addresses all the shortcomings of removable dentures, while also avoiding the pain and cost associated with a larger number of dental implants. Four dental implants are used to anchor a full arch of upper or lower teeth. Due to a more compact design, these dental implants may allow some patients to escape intrusive bone grafting.
Treatment using All-on-4 Implants is completed within a reduced timeframe, with fewer recovery considerations. Dr. Kavi Sagunarthy has the experience and expertise needed to make the best recommendations for his patients. You will benefit from a one-on-one consultation at Gold Hill Dentistry today for a better smile tomorrow.
