Are you in dentures?
Are you evaluating your tooth replacement options?
Many patients find dentures to be less than ideal because they may slip or shift in your mouth. Patients also find it inconvenient and embarrassing to remove their dentures for cleaning and to apply adhesive. Dentures can also cause difficulties in chewing, eating, and speaking. Ill-fitting dentures can cause a significant amount of discomfort and pain. Florida’s, Brevard County Best Cosmetic Dentist – Dr. Sundeep Rawal located at Florida Prosthodontics in Merritt Island, wants to help you find a solution that is more comfortable, more attractive, and more durable: All-On-Four Dental Implants.
In the not-so-distant past, patients had few options for replacing lost or missing teeth in adulthood, and the most widely available method for replacing lost teeth was with dentures. Today, however, patients have options like Custom-Made Dentures, Implant Supported Dentures (All on 4), Bridges, and Dental Implants. For those afflicted with total tooth loss, the most common methods for prosthetic teeth include All on 4 or fixed permanent dentures. Our team offers important information to help you better understand your options.
The All on Four Implant Procedure, is a protocol where in one day with one surgery teeth are removed, 4 implants are placed, and (most likely) a fixed temporary bridge is placed. This surgery and restoration takes place in our office in about 3 hours. The final result is a great natural looking prosthesis, that is fixed to the implants at the time of surgery. It will be palate-less, comfortable, and secure. This will be worn for 4-6 months, then the final prosthesis is made. The final has titanium reinforcement and is meant to last a very long time. All on 4 Implant is a permanent solution to missing or lost teeth. It is essentially a fake teeth implant that feels, functions and looks like your natural teeth.
When it comes to weighing your options with tooth replacement, many people today are not seeking replacements with their Grandparents Dentures. No they are seeking out options to rebuild what was lost, regain the ability to speak and chew with the same ability as they had with their natural teeth.
You can check out below the differences and the advantages of the All on Four permanent dental implant solution compared to traditional dentures. You can also visit our page on the All on Four as well by clicking here.
This is not your grandparent’s denture. The all on four, is very slim, with very minimal pink acrylic. It lacks the flanges or “wings” that traditional dentures have. Because it is screwed into the implants, they hold the teeth in. The All on Four does not rock, does not move; it simply is rock solid fixed TEETH. You do not remove the All on Four, it is retrievable by us or your dentist, but not by you. This gives you the ultimate in security and a peace of mind.
Conventional dentures rest on the gums – which by their nature move. It is well known in the dental literature that with conventional dentures patients are only able to function at 10%; with teeth patients are able to function at 100%. Much of a difference. With full mouth dental implants, they provide a stable foundation for which we can build a “superstructure” – the Fixed Bridge of the All on Four Implant concept. This arrangement of dental implants and prosthesis, transmit the forces the jaws generate directly to the food- translating in the ability to eat steak, etc. Much of the force is lost at the gums with conventional dentures.
Please note, in the 90 days after surgery, we ask that you maintain on a soft diet – this is the constancy of a 3 Musketeers bar. The bone around the implants during the first 3 months undergoes some changes and if overloaded, could be at risk of failure.
Denture creams and adhesives are a thing of the past when your denture is screwed in! There is absolutely no need for the goop!
The All on Four Implants is a great procedure for you to smile about. Replacing an entire arch of teeth can allow us to uniformly create a beautiful and bright smile in a day. You can feel free to smile, eat, drink, and speak knowing there is no slippage or chance for any embarrassing moment if your teeth slip or fall.
See the difference teeth implants can make in your life. It improves your health, confidence, lifestyle and more. 95% success rate.
