Farber Center in Hauppauge and Medford NY is a holistic dental practice providing outstanding and advanced tooth replacement options. If you already wear traditional dentures and are unhappy with them, read on to find out more about our implant-supported methods. Also, if you are struggling with diseased teeth that cannot be saved, we can extract and replace them with beautiful new teeth.
When you replace a complete dental arch, the essential considerations are your comfort and the excellent performance of the new teeth — which means a firm bite. It’s why more modern implant-supported systems are such an advancement over to traditional dentures only held in with adhesives. Also, a beautiful smile and faster healing time are significant advantages. For all of these reasons, we are proud to recommend the best All-on-4® dental implants Long Island has to offer. Among the full-arch replacement options we provide, they are the most popular and can be cost-effective compared to individual implants.
Can a Full-Arch Restoration be Completed in a Day?
Yes, a full-arch restoration with dental implants can be completed in a single day. If it sounds impressive, we can assure it’s true. When you’re replacing all of your upper or lower teeth, a temporary dental appliance needs to go into your mouth immediately. Otherwise, you would be unable to chew, smile, and speak normally. These are all the reasons Dr. Farber offers All-on-4® implants to patients who need a complete row or upper or lower teeth — or both. It is an advanced method in which as few as four implants can support an entire arch. There is a significant cost saving over individual implants, and you enjoy many of their benefits.
Computer-guided implant placement at strategic angles within your jaw allows this fantastic procedure to work. Digital imaging reveals the points of the densest bone when implants can be placed for maximum strength. It means a strong likelihood that bone grafting can be avoided that might be needed with other implant surgeries. Therefore, overall, it’s a less invasive and time-consuming approach that earlier methods. For full-arch tooth replacement, virtually no other procedure can match the cost-savings, time efficiency, and consistently successful results.
Dental Implants Have Advantages | You’ll Preserve Jawbone and Your Facial Structure
Perhaps you’ve seen someone either with missing teeth or wearing dentures who doesn’t quite look like themselves. It’s very likely because they have lost jawbone along with teeth, and their facial appearance has changed. When a tooth is pulled, it leaves a void that is referred to as a socket. As sockets are left open, a natural process called bone resorption occurs. It means the body takes back the minerals that compose the bone, and it recedes in that spot. Dental implants replace the roots of natural teeth and fuse to the jawbone. It means the bone is stabilized and does not reabsorb as it would otherwise.
In an implant-supported arch restoration, you’ll preserve bone and have teeth that are tightly and permanently attached. It means you will have a firm bite as well as a beautiful smile. The cliches about biting into apples and eating corn-on-the-cob have validity because but in reality, they go much farther. Many of the healthiest and most enjoyable food is crunchy and chewy. With the support of denture implants, you’ll have a bite strength that is in the range of 80- to 90-percent the power of natural teeth generally. You’ll be comfortable eating everything you love with no reluctance or slipping dentures. It’s a quality of life improvement everyone appreciates.
