Implant Supported Overdentures
Non-Removable Teeth on Implants
Attractive, healthy teeth play an important role in our general health and well-being. You look and feel confident, free to laugh with family and friends — anytime and anywhere. There are many reasons why people lose their teeth, which can have a strong impact on quality of life.
Missing teeth can cause bone loss and the jawbone to shrink. This is because the bone is no longer stimulated when you chew food — something that happens routinely when you use your natural teeth. This causes physical changes to your face. Your jaw line shrinks, causing dentures to lose their fit. They often slip, cause pain, or even become embarrassing.
The Problem With Traditional Dentures
Unsecured, traditional dentures are an old fashioned solution for people who have lost all of their teeth. Unfortunately, you may find that wearing unsecured dentures can be painful, inconvenient and awkward. Such dentures make it difficult to chew a variety of foods, which can stop you from eating many of the foods you once enjoyed. Wearing dentures may also affect how you pronounce words, and therefore the way you speak.
We Can Help With Modern Implant Solutions
A variety of modern dental implant-based tooth replacement solutions are available. Any of these solutions can dramatically improves your quality of life; such as enabling proper chewing and speaking, increasing comfort and self-confidence, and encouraging the consumption of a wider variety of foods.
We Have The Solution That Is Right For You
All-on-4 is the modern solution for all missing teeth. This treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants. With less implants needed, overall treatment time is reduced. The unique All-on-4 solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume. Typically we can place temporary provisional teeth on the same day after treatment. These provisional teeth look and feel much like natural teeth and you can lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a few weeks healing time, we will place your final bridge. Your quality of life is improved and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again. You have a choice between a fixed or a removable final replacement arch. This special implant, anchored at an angle, offers improved support and stability for your replacement arch.
Removable implant overdentures provide stability where new teeth are attached to two or more dental implants, making this a cost-effective option. You can chew with confidence and your sense of taste is unaffected. Your teeth can be removed for cleaning and the need for denture adhesives is eliminated.
Removable overdentures on an implant bar provide an even more secure fit. A dental bar is fixed to your jaw bone with two or more implants, providing stronger support for your removable dentures. Your new teeth can be removed for cleaning and the need for denture adhesives is eliminated.
Fixed implant supported bridges are a more durable solution with natural-looking replacement teeth secured on four or more dental implants. This solution stimulates bone maintenance, restores chewing function, and maintains taste sensation.
