Replacing All Teeth in 21061
While some patients opt for removable dentures, this option can be burdensome and cause sores along the gums. Another option for replacing a full set of teeth is a full-arch fixed bridge. These dentures are anchored to the jawbone by multiple implants. The process for placing the implants is similar to that of a single dental implant in that your oral surgeon will carefully insert titanium “roots” in your jawbone. The number of implants will be determined during consultation with Dr. Souri after examining the condition of the bone in your mouth. Once the implants are placed, you will be fitted with a custom set of crowns that will be fixed to the implants. With proper oral hygiene, fixed bridge dentures can serve all of the functions of a natural set of teeth.
You may also be candidate for implant-supported overdentures. Implant-supported overdentures are a full set of dentures that clip into place along your jawline to perform the appearance and function of natural teeth. Like the full-arch fixed bridge denture, the overdenture is supported by dental implants. However, the overdenture can be removed for cleaning and maintenance. Your oral surgeon will attach a supporting structure to the implants so that you can snap your overdentures into place for increased stability and comfort while eating, drinking, and speaking.
With proper care, fixed bridge dentures and implant-supported overdentures can provide permanent solutions to the problems created by multiple missing teeth.
What is an All-On-4 or Teeth In A Day?
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is a full mouth tooth replacement technique that is capable of giving patients new teeth in a day! This procedure is used when a patient needs all of their upper or lower teeth replaced. An individual may need teeth replaced because their teeth are broken, failing, or missing. Your oral surgeon and restoring dentist work collaboratively to fabricate new teeth, which will be placed on the implants-all while our patients are comfortably asleep. Our patients are able to leave the office with a new beautiful smile!
The All-on-4 procedure is a dental implant solution that allows a fixed denture to be placed using only four dental implants per jaw. The implants are placed in a specific manner to maximize support from the bone that exists and decreases the need for bone grafting. The method in which the implants are placed eliminates the standard healing time that applies to other types of dental implants. Your doctor uses state-of-the-art technology to create the most precise and individualized plan for surgery.
What if you could have a full set of teeth replaced in only one day?
Many patients have been previously told that they are not candidates for traditional dental implants because they lack sufficient bone. These same patients are now candidates for our new All-on-4 technique! Many patients are suffering every day with painful dentures and could benefit from dental implants that keep your teeth in!
Advantages of the All-On-4:
- Teeth are fixed and cannot be taken out by the patient
- Teeth function like natural teeth
