If you’ve lost an entire arch of teeth, there aren’t a ton of options for replacements. Dentures have improved a lot over the years, but the fact is, they still have a few drawbacks you can’t avoid. That’s because your gum tissue changes after you lose teeth, so the fit of your dentures will change over time. If that’s been bothering you, consider how dental implants can provide you with a more permanent replacement for missing teeth.
Implants have not always been capable of providing a full arch replacement, but the new four anchor solution allows for a full arch of replacement teeth to be supported with just four foundation anchors to the jaw. These anchors provide the same stimulation during chewing as the roots of teeth, too, so it can slow down some of the gum tissue loss patients experience. How much depends on the patient, but even if there are changes, the implant anchors support the replacement teeth, so they remain in place securely.
On top of the increased comfort patients report when going with this option, implants provide many other benefits you can count on.
Implants are available to more and more patients every day. Even those who were originally told they are not candidates may qualify for All-On-4 dental implants after receiving additional treatments to provide extra support for the anchors. You never know whether it’s an option for you if you don’t ask, so make an appointment with Drs. Canal and Calem for a consultation today. At your appointment, you’ll have a chance to get specific information about how implants will work for your case, how long the recovery window is likely to be, and when you might be able to schedule a procedure to place them.
