At Peters Dental Associates, our professionals are here to work with individuals in finding a way to address common dental concerns. Dr. M. H. Peters, Jr. of Houston, TX can assist individuals who are unhappy with their traditional full dentures. These restorations are used to replace an entire arch of teeth, but can be difficult to keep firmly in place. Natural suction and dental adhesives are not the only way to achieve results. Instead, patients may want to ask about the advantages of using all-on-four dental implants to stabilize and strengthen their dentures.
All-on-four dental implants explained
Dentures have a tendency to be difficult to keep in the smile. This is why many patients are seeking alternative ways to replace their missing teeth. However, full dentures are a necessity for those who have lost or extracted all the teeth in the dental arch. With the use of all-on-four dental implants, patients can use their full dentures but ensure that they have sufficient strength and durability to enjoy their favorite foods!
All-on-four dental implants are used for denture stability. Dental implants, which are small titanium posts, are placed along the dental arch. They are then used to hold the full dentures in place, stabilizing them and allowing patients to rest easy, avoiding the need for messy adhesives. This is the best method of keeping dentures in place to ensure proper fit and function.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Most candidates are patients who have enough jaw bone present to make sure the implant procedure is successful. If there is insufficient bone present, due to years of wearing traditional dentures, patients will need to ask about preparatory procedures such as bone grafting. This helps in building up the bone and providing a proper foundation for the implant. Once the implants are in place, the dentures are fabricated to snap into place and ensure functionality.
