Full Mouth Replacement - Montgomeryville, PA
Stabilize Your Denture with Dental Implants
Your teeth can last for a lifetime with the right care over the years, like brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly. Unfortunately, 35 million Americans don’t have any natural teeth remaining. If you’ve suffered significant tooth loss, you need full mouth replacement in Montgomeryville. Typically, missing teeth are replaced with dentures, but now you can enjoy a more permanent solution. Instead of relying on an adhesive, your denture is secured to your jawbone using dental implants. You can have the next best thing to your real teeth.
What Can I Expect from Full Mouth Replacement?
With every tooth you’ve lost, several new challenges have developed in your life. Not only did you lose your self-esteem but also your ability to maintain a balanced diet because many foods are too difficult to chew. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies that hurt your general health. You may also have difficulty speaking clearly, and you may have also noticed changes to your facial appearance.
Replacing your missing teeth resolves these complications to improve your quality of life. You can chew, speak, and smile without any concern. A specific number of dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. They serve as new tooth roots while also anchoring your denture in place. With the posts mimicking your roots, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits that aren’t possible using a traditional denture.
Implant-retained dentures rely on 6 to 8 strategically placed implant posts. Your treatment will consist of multiple steps, each of which promotes the long-term success of your new smile. First, your implant posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. Then, you spend the next several months healing. After your jawbone has fused to the posts, special fixtures are placed on each one to connect your custom-made denture.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-On-4 differs from traditional implant-retained dentures because only 4 implant posts are needed. They are placed at an angle into the thickest parts of your jaw. This can eliminate the need for bone grafting. You are also fitted with a temporary denture the same day as your placement surgery, so you won’t need to go without your teeth while you heal. Although fewer posts are used, rest assured, you’ll enjoy the same stability and results as the standard method.
