Serving Brentwood, Belle Meade and Green Hills Areas of Nashville TN
Most often, people with tooth loss assume that their only option is to get poorly made, and uncomfortable set of dentures. Well, your implant dentists in Nashville want you to know that you can avoid dentures by getting dental implants instead.
Let’s take a look at what the procedure consists of, and how it may help restore your smile and your confidence!
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are known as the best tooth replacement option simply because the implant itself is surgically placed into the jawbone where it stays, forever, and it takes the place of the missing tooth’s root. No other tooth replacement –partial dentures, bridgework, or even dentures, have this capability.
Depending on the type of dental implant you need, whether it is for one or two missing teeth or if you need to replace an entire dental arch of teeth, implants can still work in your favor, here’s how.
All on 4s
All on 4s is a dental implant system specially designed for patients with significant tooth loss, or those that are current denture wearers. Instead of using implants to replace every single missing tooth, (that would be a lot of implants!), only four implants usually are needed to anchor into the jawbone. These implants are designed differently from traditional implants that are longer and require months of healing time.
Attached to the implants is a single unit of replacement teeth. While these teeth are referred to as an overdenture, don’t confuse them with a traditional denture that doesn’t look all that natural, and that has an upper palate that rests on the roof of your mouth. All on 4s does not have a palate in the middle but does fit slightly over the boney ridge of your upper and lower dental arch. The purpose of this design is to further create the illusion that they are real teeth.
One of the best benefits of All on 4s is that the entire procedure can be completed in a single day! That’s significant considering most people would not want to go without any teeth for a couple of weeks or more while they wait on a set of dentures to be made. When you agree to the All on 4s procedure, you come to our office for your procedure and leave that same day with a beautiful new set of replacement teeth.
Nothing else compares to the All on 4 implant system. Plus, patients who have undergone this procedure appreciate how comfortable their new, permanent teeth can be as they eat and speak with ease. There is no slipping or shifting in the mouth, no sore spots or discomfort, and they are hassle-free! No need to remove them at night, since they are permanently anchored to your implants. Instead, just brush and floss as usual to keep them sparkling white, and to maintain healthy gums and fresh breath.
