Implant supported dentures provide the ability for patients eliminate all the aggravations associated with traditional dentures. No denture adhesive. No concern about teeth movement. No concern about what you eat.
In the past, when most people needed to replace entire sets of teeth, they turn to traditional dentures. However, dentures don’t offer a very high level of comfort or confidence and they must deal with the aggravations associated with denture adhesive.
That is why, at Robert Marc Dental, Dr. Schulman offers a state-of-the-art approach to replacing the entire arch of teeth utilizing 4 implants on the upper and lower part of your mouth- known as the All-on-4 treatment.
Why only 4 Implants?
The reason why only 4 implants are necessary to replace all of your upper or lower teeth is that 2 of those implants are usually tilted backward to avoid your sinus cavity. These implants are longer than the other 2 implants. Consequently, working together, all 4 dental implants can provide the stability needed to support all of the teeth in the upper jaw or lower jaw. Normally, two implants are placed near the front of the mouth, inserted in a nearly vertical alignment. The other two are inserted towards the back of the mouth are
usually placed at a steeper angle for greater stability and support due to the increased contact with the bone of the jaw. This procedure eliminates the costly need to have an implant placed for every tooth that will be placed.
How do I know if Implant supported dentures are right for me?
Counter to advertisements or articles you might read, All-on-4 treatments are not for everyone. It is critical that a trained clinician assess each situation. As a Board-Certified Prosthodontist, Dr. Schulman has the specialization necessary to evaluate each case.
In order to ensure that the All-on-4 treatment is suitable for you, Dr. Schulman takes a dental CT scan and performs further diagnostic analysis. This will determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the dental implants procedure.
What are the benefits of implant supported dentures or other implants?
#1-Better Esthetics & Greater Self-Confidence
Your dental implants will be covered with natural-looking teeth. As a result of their natural appearance and functionality, you will feel much more confident when eating or smiling. There is no need to worry about them moving or sliding when you speak, smile, or eat. Being concerned about loose dentures moving or even falling out won’t be an issue any longer.
#2- Easy to Maintain & More Durable
Your All-on-4 implants can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. You can continue with your normal oral care without the need or hassle for dental adhesives that are usually needed when you have traditional dentures.
#3- Long lasting
All-on-4 implants that are done and cared for correctly can last a lifetime! What’s more, you won’t have to go through fitting sessions that traditional dentures require. This denture-alternative provides you with a long-lasting solution that also offers greater comfort and convenience.
#4- Increased tooth functionality
Since dental implants act as natural teeth, the supportive and stable base of your All-on-4 implants will enable you to have a regular diet. You will not have to deal with concerns about speech clarity, gum sensitivity or movement of your teeth.
