A New Smile In One Visit Is Possible

When you lose several of your natural teeth, or possibly all of them, your oral health, bite function, and quality of life can suffer, as can your facial structure. But we can counter these complications with the placement of dental implant dentures. In fact, our team at our dental implant center in Stillwater, OK can provide a full smile in one visit with All-On-Four.

The Impact of Advanced Tooth Loss

What happens when you lose the majority of your teeth, and how does this happen? Advanced tooth loss is often linked to periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease. As you begin to lose teeth, the body will stop the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the areas near your missing root. Without these nutrients, the bone tissue breaks down, which means further tooth loss. Over time, this could lead to jawbone shrinkage and an older appearance. We don’t want your tooth loss to impact how you eat or speak, and make negative impacts on your appearance and quality of life. Our team can secure a full set of dentures, even if your jawbone has lost structure.

Starting Your Treatment

To begin, we will examine your smile to understand the severity and causes of your tooth loss. We may offer care to manage underlying issues to protect your new teeth. For some patients, receiving implant dentures would mean first undergoing grafting or sinus lift procedures to strengthen the area. But with All-On-Four, our team only needs four posts per arch, and these are smaller and designed to require less structure to support, so you could still obtain a full smile in one visit, even if your tooth loss has weakened your jaw somewhat.

The Benefits of All-On-Four

As we mentioned above, placement could be possible without the need for initial surgery, such as grafting or sinus limits. The post helps stimulate the growth of bone tissue, so you don’t obtain an older appearance and your new roots can stay in place for decades. In the same visit, we will connect abutments to the posts and attach a set of dentures. This could be a custom-made and final denture, or we may attach a temporary and swap it for the final one later. Regardless, you will leave our office with a full and beautiful smile, and as the placement area heals, you can begin eating your favorite foods again.
