Are you tired of the discomfort of wearing dentures? Before the advent of dental implants , the only solution for those who had lost their teeth was removable dentures. However, with this extremely beneficial modern dental technology, it is possible to replace an entire set of missing teeth with a permanent solution.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth that replace not only the visible part of the tooth, but the root as well. The implant itself consists of a titanium post, which is surgically inserted into the gums and jawbone by a dentist. An abutment and crown are then placed onto the implant to form the visible part of the replacement tooth. The most important and beneficial part of the dental implant is the post, which mimics a real tooth’s root, preventing the bone loss that many people suffer as a result of having missing teeth.
What Are Permanent Dentures?
All-on-4™ permanent dentures are a combination of traditional denture technology and dental implants. Your dentist can affix a permanent bridge that consists of multiple replacement crowns to just four titanium implants to replace a full row of missing teeth. The result is a stable, permanent, and healthy solution that provides significant benefits over regular dentures. Your new permanent dentures will not slip, rub, or cause irritation to your gums, and they will look and feel more like your natural teeth, providing you with a more confident and comfortable smile.
