All-on-Four Implant Dentures
All-on-Four implant dentures are an innovative solution to traditional dentures. Those who have lost all of their teeth due to age, injury or disease benefit most from this permanent and secure option. This revolutionary procedure involves the placement of four dental implants into the jawbone, which then anchor a full arch of prosthetic teeth in place.
First, your dentist or dental surgeon will preform a minor surgical procedure to place dental implants in your jawbone. As your mouth heals around the implants, the titanium posts will fuse into your jawbone. After healing, your dentist will place the implant denture.
With All-on-Four implant dentures, patients can enjoy improved chewing and speaking abilities, as well as a more natural looking smile. Patients love the all-on-four option because it gives their dentures a strong, long-lasting foundation.
Full Dentures & Partial Dentures
For patients interested in removable dentures and partial dentures, we can provide full and partial sets of custom-made dentures. Our traditional dentures consist of replacement teeth that we attach to a plastic base with a metal framework. Patients who choose our custom-made modern dentures get a wide variety of benefits including improved aesthetics, functionality, and long term durability.
What are Traditional Dentures?
Traditional dentures have been around for centuries, providing a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a combination of acrylic resin and metal. Traditional dentures are removable and easy to clean, making them an ideal choice for those looking for an affordable dental prosthetic. With proper care and regular check-ups, traditional dentures can last up to five years or more.
What are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are custom-made prosthetic devices that fit into the spaces left by missing teeth, restoring both form and function to your mouth. Partial dentures can consist of a variety of materials, including acrylic resin, metal, or a combination of both. Our dentist can also use them in conjunction with other dental procedures such as bridges or implants for a more complete restoration. By replacing the missing teeth with partial dentures, patients can enjoy improved oral health, better chewing ability, and an enhanced smile.
If you are looking for a firmer fitting denture, we can offer you implant-secured dentures. Unlike all-on-four, implant dentures are removable yet they still anchor your dentures in place while in use. Dr. Wainwright can help you determine which smile restoration option will best meet your dental health needs and budgetary goals. Patients interested in pursuing dentures of any kind are encouraged to schedule a consultation today. We look forward to seeing you soon.
