Tryon Family Dentistry works with patients who are looking for solutions to dentures that don’t fit properly, or who might be living with multiple missing teeth. We often recommend dental implants to help support dentures. Modern dentistry gives us the tools and materials to offer you the latest and most convenient options for restoring lost teeth.
This procedure is known as all-on-four implants, or implant-supported dentures. Four strategically-placed implants are used to provide support for a denture. Although, this type of denture is designed to attach to dental implants. All-on-four dentures offer a much more secure fit so there is no movement or slippage when patients talk or eat. Gum irritation is greatly reduced as well; since they do not sit directly on your gums like traditional dentures.
The Benefits of All-on-four Dentures
Traditional removable dentures can put tremendous pressure on your jawbone and gums in order to stay in place. This causes deterioration of your bone structure over time. Some patients say that this makes it difficult for your denture to stay in place. Rather than restore or adjust your traditional denture, replace it with a secure, permanent solution.
Another benefit to your oral health dental implants offer is that they also work to keep your jawbone stimulated, which protects against the deterioration that occurs with the pressure of traditional dentures.
A healthy jawbone provides better longevity for your denture. This makes implant-supported dentures a cost-effective, long-term investment in your oral health. They have the potential to last for a lifetime.
What to Expect
We offer comprehensive care for replacing your missing teeth with implant dentures at Tryon Family Dentistry. Patients choosing all-on-four dentures will be happy to know that we can place your implants here in the comfort of our dental offices. You’ll work with the team you already know and trust and receive a denture or partial that you will be proud of and even enjoy wearing.
Even if you already wear a denture or partial and you have struggled with the fit or feel of your appliance, dental implants might still provide you with a better fit, especially if you have been living with movement or slippage of your denture in the past.
