Problem with Dentures

The number of people with missing teeth continues to rise. Research shows that around 22% of Americans, with ages above 65, have lost all of their natural teeth. Despite progress in dental treatments, majority of these people are still using conventional dentures. While this solution may be acceptable, sophisticated dental services like implants outgrow dentures in several aspects. Although dental implants have become common service among clinics, only 3% of patients with missing teeth get them.

Using loose, ill-fitting dentures may cause several problems. You might experience pain, discomfort, and a less effective sense of taste when you eat. These might also unexpectedly slip off when you eat or speak. Dental implants, on the other hand, may spare you the humiliation of slipping dentures. They are also permanent and may last for a long time with proper maintenance and care.

Innovative Solution to Missing Teeth

Implants are small titanium screws that function as artificial tooth roots to support and secure dental restorations. Titanium’s unique properties allow standard implants to fuse with your jawbone easily for a period of two to six months. Dental implants also provide a permanent base for restorations, which can make your teeth appear more natural.

Patients need a specific amount of bone mass, as standard implants have a diameter of 3.5mm to 6mm and a length of 10mm to 16mm. If you have lower bone density, you might need a bone grafting procedure so the implants can fuse with your jawbone. Fortunately, mini-implants became a convenient alternative to this problem. These are smaller, thinner versions of standard implants, having a diameter of 3.0mm. What is even better is they take less time to heal and allow dentists to attach restorations within a day.

All-on-4 denture implants may just be what you need if you want to replace multiple teeth. This procedure allows us to install and support four to twelve individual restorations. We recommend this solution for people who have lost an entire row of teeth, or those who have no remaining teeth at all.
