Losing your teeth impacts every aspect of your life. You become self-conscious when you have to speak, and refrain from smiling or laughing. Your diet has to change to avoid tough and crunchy foods. Luckily for our Newtown Square and Ardmore patients, advancing technology in dental implants allows the opportunity to have a mouth full of functional teeth in one day.
If you are missing a full set of upper or lower teeth, and are reluctant to get dentures or spend the time and expense replacing each individual tooth, the implant supported dentures procedure may be the solution you’ve been looking for. This unique process uses four to six dental implants to anchor a full set of replacement teeth. Unlike traditional dental implants, your temporary prosthesis w
ill be ready for use immediately.
This denture alternative gives you natural looking teeth and doesn't require any special care. You can brush and floss these implants just like you would with your usual teeth.
Why Choose Implant Supported Dentures?
These dental implants are less painful than dentures, and don't force you to change your diet or lifestyle in any way. Other benefits include:
· No adhesives or bone grafting necessary
· Won't alter your sense of taste or ability to feel extreme temperatures
· Stops jawbone deterioration that comes with loss of teeth
· Permanently replaces gum tissue and missing teeth
· Corrects the appearance of your smile, lips and cheekbone
· Sits on an angle on your bone to prevent unnecessary pain and doesn't press on your gums
Where to Start
The ideal candidates for implant supported dentures already have dentures and have lost all or nearly all of their teeth. Make an appointment with Dr. Bellisario to see if all-on-four is right for you. After you have had a thorough exam, and the appropriate x-rays, you will schedule an appointment for the procedure. The implant process takes several hours, but is done in one day.
