Dental Implant Dentures Can Save Your Smile

Dental Implant Dentures Can Save Your Smile

srtillwater all-on-fourWhen you lose several of your natural teeth, the consequences can lead to a shrunken jaw and aged appearance, and negative impacts on your overall quality of life. But with dental implant dentures, we can provide a full set of new teeth in only one day. Our team at our dental implant center in Stillwater, OK knows how to offer teeth-in-a-day with the All-On-Four system.

The Impact of Missing Teeth

What happens when we lose a significant number of our natural teeth? The body will take note and in response, stop sending doses of calcium and phosphorus to the jaw around your lost roots. Without these nutrients, the bone structure breaks down and you risk further tooth loss and an aged appearance. Missing teeth also cause missing teeth to shift from position, leading to misalignment, and can strain your jaw joints, so you’re more likely to develop TMJ disorder and bruxism. You can also have trouble with facets of your daily life, like eating and even speaking clearly. But by securing a set of replacement teeth with dental implants, we can strengthen your jaw and prevent the loss of mass and density, so you can smile with confidence for decades to come.

How Dental Implants Prevent Jawbone Shrinkage

Dental implants are small biocompatible titanium posts that look like tiny screws. These are inserted into the jawbone at specific angles, depth, and positions to stimulate the growth of jawbone structure, as the body will accept them as natural roots. This means your jawbone stops breaking down, and that your new roots can stay in place for decades to come. In comparison, removable dentures need replacement every five years on average. The implants then support the denture portion, even if the jaw has weakened due to tooth loss. No need to undergo grafting or a sinus lift beforehand.

Placing Your New Smile

In the same visit, our team will connect abutments to the post so we can attach your denture. For some, this is the final denture, while others may receive a temporary and will need to have them swapped at a later date. Regardless, you will leave our office with a full smile, one that looks and functions like natural teeth! If you have any questions about how we support a full smile with just four posts per arch, then contact our team today to learn more. A chance to smile with confidence is worth it, and we hope to see you soon.
