Missing teeth can dramatically change a person’s life. It can affect the appearance of the smile and impact one’s self-confidence. It can cause existing teeth to shift out of place, causing gaps to form throughout the arch. It can also impact the ability for a patient to eat or speak. When these changes occur, it is essential that patients work with their dentist to find a restorative option that suits their needs. Dr. Ira Goldberg of Morris County Dental Associates believes patients can enhance their appearance and restore the function of their smile with the use of all on four implants.
All on four dental implants
Understanding the way dental implants work will help patients in learning how the all on four concept will improve the smile. Dental implants are titanium posts that act as natural tooth roots and are implanted into the bone of the jaw. This is done to act as the proper foundation for a tooth replacement option. In a situation where patients are using special dentures with their implants, a series of four implants are placed along the arch. Then, dentures are fabricated to snap into place with these implants to complete the smile!
How are all on four dentures different than full dentures?
Full dentures are restorations that are made to fit on the ridge of the gum and replace missing teeth, while also integrating in fake gum tissues as well. However, many patients do not feel as though their full dentures stay firmly in place when they eat and speak. With the use of all on four dentures, these restorations are fully attached to the mouth with the use of implant, ensuring optimum strength and functionality.
