We Are Your Home for All-On-4 Dental Implants in Florham Park, NJ
Although dental implants are a very effective way to replace missing teeth, they require that you have enough bone mass in your jaw to bond with the implant and hold it in place. The problem with this is that one of the side effects of having missing teeth is losing bone mass. So people who have worn dentures for years, but would like to secure them with dental implants, often find they lack the bone mass to do so.
If you live in Florham Park, Livingston, Morristown or Millburn, NJ, and you are in this situation, there is some good news. You don’t have to continue putting up with loose dentures that slide around your mouth and fly out when you least expect it. Here at The Art of Smile in Florham Park, NJ, we offer a revolutionary dental procedure that allows you to have implant-supported dentures, even if your jawbone has experienced serious deterioration.
All-on-4 takes dental implantology in an innovative new direction. With this state-of-the-art dental technology, we can support a full set of dentures with fewer implants, even if you have low bone mass in your jaw.
The All-on-4 technique uses four dental implants with the back two placed at an angle to make the most of the bone mass you have. This allows the dental implants to have a greater contact surface with your jawbone, even if it has deteriorated. The All-on-4 dental implants will bond with your bone just like traditional dental implants. So they make a strong anchor for a full set of dentures.
The procedure typically takes one day to complete, 2-3 hours per arch. Before you leave, you will be fitted with a set of temporary dentures. So you will have great looking, functioning restorations while your permanent dentures are being built.
Although dentures are certainly an effective alternative to living with missing teeth, they are not without their problems. When the fit of your dentures weakens, as they almost certainly will, they loosen and can slide around inside your mouth. This causes problems speaking and can be unsightly. Even worse, loose dentures can be painful and cause sores in your mouth.
All these problems will be a thing of the past with All-on-4 dental implants. The dental implants will hold your dentures in place, giving you a secure fit and strong chewing power. And caring for them couldn’t be easier. Just brush them like your natural teeth. To discuss your concerns and treatment options or schedule an appointment at The Art of Smile Dental, call us today.
