Living with complete tooth loss significantly compromises your quality of life. It can be almost impossible to maintain a balanced diet while speaking clearly is also more challenging. Not to mention, the changes to your appearance can devastate your self-esteem. You can rebuild a complete, beautiful smile using dental implants in Aurora. Instead of relying on an adhesive to hold your denture in place, 4 implant posts can secure it to your jawbone. You can say good-bye to slipping and irritation permanently.
Traditional dentures have undergone several improvements to enhance their fit and function. Now, they almost look like real teeth, but they will never feel natural. Despite new innovations, there will always be some limitations to the foods you can eat. Even with the best adhesive, you may still experience some slipping.
All-On-4 eliminates the disadvantages of traditional dentures to give you the next best thing to your real teeth. Suction or an adhesive is not used to hold your denture to your gum tissue. Instead, it is anchored to your jawbone using 4 strategically placed dental implants.
If you are missing all your natural teeth on one or both arches and traditional dentures did not give you the results you wanted, you may be a candidate for All-On-4. You cannot have any lifestyle or medical conditions that impact your body’s ability to heal or fight infections. You also cannot have active gum disease, and you must have good oral health.
Your dentist in Aurora performs a comprehensive consultation and takes a CT scan to determine if you are a candidate for All-On-4. We will create the customized treatment plan you need to restore a beautiful, functional smile.
Unlike a traditional denture, dental implants allow you to replace the entire tooth structure. The implant posts serve as new tooth roots, allowing you to enjoy a variety of benefits that are not possible using a complete denture, including:
Traditional dental implants require a multi-phased treatment process that can take several months to complete. If you need bone grafting before placing the implant posts, this adds even more time to your treatment plan. All-On-4 can streamline the process.
The implant posts are placed into the thickest parts of your jaw. As a result, you may not even need bone grafting if you have lost density. In some cases, you can even rebuild your smile in just one day. You can be fitted with a temporary denture the same day as your placement surgery, so you do not need to go without any teeth while you heal.
