While your denture may have been custom-made, you can start to grow frustrated with the effort you have to put towards keeping it in place. You can also feel self-conscious because it feels less than stable when you try to eat, or whenever you speak. At our Katy, TX dental practice, we can discuss improving your experience with prosthetic dental work by replacing your current denture with one held by dental implants. All-On-4 implant dentures allow patients to enjoy a stable, custom appliance that restores their appearance while improving their biting and chewing functions. In addition to keeping an appliance securely in place throughout the day, dental implants can actually restore the delivery of nutrients to your jawbone, keeping it in better health.
Implant-Held Dentures Keep Your Restoration Stable
Simply put, an unstable restoration can quickly become a nuisance. You should feel confident in a prosthetic, as it is meant to improve your appearance and quality of life. If you are frequently struggling to keep it in place, or if you are not able to rely on it for functional support, it can start to feel like a new problem, rather than a solution to tooth loss. Implant-held dentures can eliminate many of the frustrations people have with restorations. At our practice, we can make sure that your denture actually stays in place with the use of just four implant posts!
Using Four Implant Posts To Hold Your Restoration
All-On-4 dental implants are capable of holding a full denture in place. This limited number of posts ensures that your procedure requires less work, and demands less support from your jawbone. After an initial evaluation, your dentist will determine the ideal placement for each implant. Once they have been set, and they have enjoyed time to recover, your custom denture can be set in place so that you enjoy meaningful smile improvements. Because this arrangement provides more stability than dentures held by suction or epoxies, you can discover that you feel more comfortable with your appliance when biting, chewing, laughing, and speaking.
Dental Implants Can Maintain The Health Of Your Jawbone
After losing teeth, a person can begin losing mass in their jawbone. The reason for this is that the roots of our teeth actually create stimulation in the bone that tells our bodies to send nutrients to the bone. Dental implants restore that stimulation, so your body once again sends important nutrients and minerals to your jawbone, keeping it in good condition.
