Dentures are a thing of the Past with Implant technology
Dental Implants are changing lives and are more convenient and affordable than ever before. For those who have or are about to lose all of their teeth and are fearing a life with dentures, there are now better options besides traditional dentures. One of the most reliable, predictable and proven methods of restoring lifelike teeth is a procedure known as “All-on-Four” or “Teeth in a Day.” While traditional dentures reduce chewing function to 10 percent or less of natural teeth, as few as 4 dental implants can restore function back up to 95 percent. Our “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows patients to have the procedure done in one day and avoid the negative side effects of a traditional denture.
The Case for Implants
Implants are used in several ways in medicine. When faced with a failing knee or hip, an implant replaces it. We don’t hear of a wheelchair being recommended when these parts of our bodies lose function. The same is true of teeth. Good functioning teeth are vital to our long-term health and happiness. As a result, our first recommended option should be the most natural restoration, yet many studies show 90 percent of patients are never receiving implants for full restoration of teeth. It is not an overstatement to say permanent tooth replacement with implants has revolutionized dentistry. Implants have transformed the lives of people who are edentulous (toothless) by giving them a solution that is a lot more comfortable, secure, and reliable than removable dentures. Implants also prevent the loss of bone density and volume within the jaw inevitable with missing teeth. Dental implants stabilize and stimulate the surrounding bone, maintaining bone dimension and strength. This is something removable dentures can’t do. In fact, wearing dentures accelerates bone loss.
Implant Access and Affordability
New technology guides dental implant placement with special imaging and less invasive techniques similar to robotic surgery. Functionality isn‘t the only benefit—a beautiful smile results, too. Implants offer life-changing aesthetic improvements for many who have battled tooth decay, crooked or broken teeth, and discolored old silver and gold fillings.
The cost of the procedure, thanks to recent developments in technology, has made this dream much more affordable. At Winterholler Dentistry and Implant Surgery, “Teeth in a Day” is performed with an in-house lab, the latest in imaging and implant placement technologies at the region’s most affordable prices. Patients remain comfortable throughout the procedure with IV sedation administered by a certified nurse anesthetist.
