What do dental implant supported dentures have to offer that traditional dentures don’t? Just about everything! An implant supported denture (also referred to as an “All-on-4 denture”) can give you permanent new teeth that never come out of place and feel as close to the real thing as possible.

The Perfect Fit, Every Time

Conventional dentures rely on your bone and gum tissues to hold them into place. As our mouths change, the denture may fit loosely or create sore spots that are painful. Since All-on-4 dentures are permanently anchored onto implants, they never come out – no matter what. You almost forget that they are even there.

You’ll never have to use adhesives or pastes. Every implant denture is attached to the implants so that it won’t rock, shift, or lift when you are biting and chewing. Our patients tell us that with an implant denture they are able to eat foods that they haven’t enjoyed in years!

Stronger Teeth and Bones

Other types of tooth replacement methods can cause bone loss, unnecessary adjustment of healthy teeth, and age your facial features as a result. Dental implants actually strengthen teeth, because each titanium root encourages new bone development around it. Once your implants are placed and new bone growth occurs (a process called “osseointegration”) they are actually regarded to be even stronger than the healthiest natural teeth. That’s why as few as 4 implant roots can support an entire full mouth denture.

Improved Speech and Lifestyle

Implant dentures have a unique design that limits the impact they have on your speech patterns. The denture has a unique “U” shape that follows the natural curve of your jaw, covering only the areas of your mouth where teeth should be. This eliminates bulky acrylic from covering the roof of your mouth the way a conventional denture would. As a result, it’s easier for you to talk, eat and even taste your food!

Who is a Candidate for All-on-4 Dentures?

The ideal dental implant denture candidate will have a healthy mouth that is free of disease. If it’s necessary to remove teeth that have severe decay or infect, that can be done. A certain amount of healthy bone should also be present in order to support the fixed prosthesis properly. Marconi Dental Group also offers bone grafting, which can improve the amount of bone present so that more people are candidates for implant dentures.

At Marconi Dental Group, we offer comprehensive dental implant therapy right here in our office. Our customized dental implant program allows you to replace one tooth or all of them. After your schedule an exam with Dr. Alizadeh, we will discuss what options are available and how an implant-supported denture can help.

Are you ready to enjoy smiling like you did before you wore dentures? Call Marconi Dental Group today to find out if All-on-4 implant dentures are the right option for you.
