When you suffer from tooth loss, it seems as if you are the only one who has this embarrassing problem, but you are not alone. While losing your permanent teeth is not inevitable, it is common. The next step is to restore your smile, but will you choose dental implants for their stability and bone health benefits or will you opt for affordable, convenient dentures? Dr. Christopher Long offers an option that combines the advantages of dental implants and a denture, implant supported dentures:
- All-on-4 dental implants
- Immediate load implant supported dentures
The Best of Both Worlds
Implant supported dentures take the benefits from dentures and dental implants and creates a unique, effective treatment.
Implant Supported Dentures for Quick yet Stable Tooth Restoration
Dr. Long uses four strategically located titanium posts to secure your denture. Titanium is utilized for its compatibility with the human body and once implanted into the jaw bone it integrates, rendering the strongest bond available for your implants. Your denture can then be anchored to the dental implants for maximum stability. Benefits of implant supported dentures include:
- Ability to eat your favorite foods
- Speak with confidence, without worrying about clicking sounds
- More comfortable than traditional dentures
- Prevents sliding and shifting associated with dentures
Implant Dentures to Suit Your Needs
All-on-4 dental implants, immediate load dentures and Teeth-in-a-Day are all implant denture techniques that allow Dr. Long to place a full set of brand new dentures immediately onto your dental implants. A temporary set of dentures may be needed while your gums and your jaw bone adjusts to the implants but you can still leave our office with a beautiful smile.
