The More Permanent Solution to Traditional Dentures
If you have lost, or are losing, all of your natural teeth, you are probably thinking about traditional, removable dentures. They are the most common way to replace a full arch of teeth, although they have limited success in many cases. Thanks to advances in implant technology, we now have a better way!
All-On-4 Implant Dentures, also called “Teeth in a Day,” are a wonderful solution for people who want an economical, comfortable, and beautiful way to replace missing teeth. If this describes you, please call Lynn Dental Care in Dallas Texas and set up a consultation to learn more.
What are All-on-4 Implant Dentures?
Traditional dentures are secured by suction, which only works if they fit snugly. Many patients often have to use adhesive to stabilize them. All-On-4 Implant Dentures are fixed in place and can only be removed by a dentist. This system is more economical than many implant-retained dentures, because it only requires 4 dental implants to achieve full stability. In the past, it took 8, 10, or even 12 implants to support a denture.
Problems with Traditional Dentures
In terms of health, the most significant issue that denture wearers face is bone loss. According to the laws of physics, form follows function. Therefore, the bone grows around tooth roots, holding them in place. Biting pressure is transferred to the bone, and it strengthens in response. When the bone has no roots to hold, and no stimulation, it begins melting away. It is similar to what happens to your muscles when they are not exercised.
Additionally, many denture wearers endure a number of daily miseries, caused by the lack of stability. Denture sores caused by the friction of a sloppy appliance, and general discomfort, are the most common complaints. When your teeth are not stable, chewing and speaking becomes challenging. Most denture wearers can’t enjoy foods such as steak, fresh apples, or corn on the cob. Their health can suffer in the long-term, due to nutritional inadequacies.
