Dentures Supported by Dental Implants are Better
Permanent dentures, such as All-on-4 dental implant-supported dentures, are a revelation for anyone who has been struggling with removable ones that are loose. You want great looking teeth, a firm bite, and the ability to eat any food you choose. Implants provide a stable support system for dentures that replace complete rows of teeth. Costs are lower than with individual implants, and you’ll still enjoy many of the benefits. At our Farber Center locations in Medford and Hauppauge, NY, we strive to provide the best permanent dentures Long Island has available. All-on-4 is an excellent solution for tooth replacement, and patients who have undergone the procedure have a better quality of life.
When you have a permanent denture that is supported by dental implants, you’ll have much the same appearance and function as you did with your natural teeth. The restoration of a radiant smile will boost your self-confidence because you’ll be looking like yourself again. Just as important, you’ll again order whatever you want and enjoy every food, regardless of whether or not it is firm to bite and chew. After wearing a removable set, you’ll be impressed by implant-supported dentures. They are firm and secure with no chance of slippage. As implants heal, the jawbone grows around them and creates a bite strength comparable to natural teeth.
Whats is the Difference with Permanent Dentures?
When you wear permanent dentures, they stay put. Because you don’t take them out, you care for them by brushing and flossing around them just like you do with real teeth. Nearly everyone agrees it’s a huge improvement over removable dentures. For example, when you have All-on-4 permanent dentures supported by dental implants, it means an entire upper or lower row of teeth is permanently replaced. Only four strategically placed implants do the job and hold the entire row in place. You’ll leave the office with a gorgeous smile on the same day the implants are placed, thanks to the temporary teeth you receive immediately. It means you never need to appear in front of family, friends, and co-workers without teeth. The only requirement is to eat a modified diet as the implants heal.
For anyone comparing dentures to dental implants, one of the great advantages of implants is their bite strength – which approaches 90-percent of natural teeth. The All-on-4 teeth have the same strength, and they look great. Computer-guided technology allows placement of the four implants in the optimal position to achieve firm anchoring to the jawbone. With individual implants, sufficient bone is needed in every spot where a tooth will be replaced, but All-on-4 changes the game completely. It allows the implants to go where the bone is most able to support them, which significantly reduces the need for grafting or augmentation. It reduces costs and speeds up treatment.
