In our last post we shared a video link about one way that our Gillette, Wyoming dentist’s office can help you work through the aftermath of adult tooth loss to quickly get your life back on track: All-on-4 dental implants. These artificial teeth can quickly improve your overall situation, restoring your confidence as well as your health! That’s why we wanted to dig a little deeper and provide you with more substantial information today. So, keep reading and then be sure to get in touch with our Synergy Dental Center team to schedule your dental implant consultation with Dr. Porter!
You’ll Be Missing More Than Teeth
Tooth loss can happen to anyone. If you drive a car, work outside the home, are involved in sports or exercise routines, you are susceptible to the sort of accidents that can dislodge your teeth in a life-altering instant.
When you lose one tooth, that is a horrible situation in and of itself. If you are missing a full arch of teeth, you will really feel the pain on so many levels. You won’t look like your old self, and that will only add insult to injury. Plus, you will likely be more self-conscious when it comes to socializing or speaking out at work. And in some circumstances, your embarrassment may actually prevent you from seeking the appropriate dental care for remedying the situation.
Let’s be clear: there won’t be any judgement from us. We just want to help you take back your life ASAP!
Beyond your distorted appearance, there is the matter of your health. Here’s part of the problem: when you don’t have a full set of teeth, you can’t bite into things the way you used to, and you can’t effectively chew healthy, fiber-rich foods. This won’t be a sustainable situation and it can destroy your wellness before too long.
All-On-4 Is A Forward-Looking Solution
So, what can a dentist like Dr. Porter do about your unfortunate fate? Plenty! Our team can use dental implants to replace the roots of your teeth. Just like your original roots, your dental implants stimulate the jawbone, and this spurs new growth. This growth keeps your jawbone healthy and prevents any more bone loss.
Over the top of your new roots, we will place dental crowns to mimic the appearance of real teeth. In the event that you were missing one tooth, we would add a basic dental crown. If you lost three or four teeth, we would recommend a dental bridge. If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, however, All-On-4 may be your most viable option.
What is All-On-4, exactly? This is a procedure that allows you to go from having no teeth to having the appearance of a full set of teeth in just a day! How can we do that? We begin by strategically placing four dental implants inside your jawbone. Then, we attach a set of implant-secured dentures to your implants.
Simply put, you will regain the appearance of all your teeth on four dental implants. That said, All-On-4 dental implants aren’t just about looking better. If that’s all you were interested in, then dentures might be an acceptable option.
Truth be told, the sad thing about most dentures is that you will be left with significantly less biting power than what you had when you had all your teeth. All-On-4 dental implants give you back both the look of your real teeth and something very close to the function of those teeth, which makes a big difference in the quality of your life!
You can have 100% confidence that the dental implants Dr. Porter places will be securely held in-place by your jawbone, and that will allow for significantly more stability than you can expect with other kinds of dentures. Accordingly, with All-On-4, you can continue to eat all the foods you love without worrying about your dentures coming loose when you bite into them.
Doesn’t that all sound good? Shouldn’t you find out more and get started on your transformational journey?
