SAVANNAH, Ga., March 05, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Considered the gold standard for replacing missing or failing teeth,
Benefits Over Dentures Modern dentures can be highly aesthetic and natural in appearance, but they have fundamental limitations in their design. An upper denture has a plastic palate that uses suction to adhere to the roof of the mouth. A lower denture is supported solely by the gums. Both are difficult to manage and prone to slipping, and they can make it impossible to chew certain foods.
In addition, as soon as teeth are extracted, jawbone loss begins. Dentures generally need to be relined every year, and denture wearers can gradually develop a sunken, prematurely aged appearance.
Dental implants replace the tooth roots, restoring stability and more than 90% of the original bite strength. Patients can laugh and talk with confidence, and they can resume eating even tough or sticky foods. Meanwhile, the implants halt and reverse jawbone loss, creating a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Benefits Over Traditional Implants Traditional dental implants can be used to replace a full arch of teeth. However, this requires numerous implants, leading to a price point that is out of range for many people. In addition, it requires the implants to be placed and capped, and then allowed to heal for several months while the patient wears a denture.
All-on-4 is less expensive because it requires only 4 implants. The implants are immediate-load, which means that they can take the forces of biting and chewing right away. A full fixed arch of teeth is secured in the mouth on the same day that the implants are placed. After a day or two of soft foods, patients can return to a normal diet that includes challenging foods such as corn on the cob and steak. The initial teeth are made of acrylic, and they function well, but some patients like to upgrade to porcelain teeth at some future point.
