Implant Supported Dentures
When it comes to replacing a full arch of upper or lower teeth, dentures are the recommended solution. While traditional dentures have come a long way, in terms of fit and appearance, patients are still subject to many drawbacks such as dentures slipping, gum irritation, restricted eating habits and the hassle of cleaning removable dentures. Fortunately, implant dentistry can resolve these concerns and provide the most stable denture possible. Carolina Commons Dentistry proudly offers implant supported dentures as part of our comprehensive services in restorative dentistry.
An implant supported denture allows a full arch of prosthetic teeth (denture) to be anchored to dental implants. In doing so, the denture is securely fixed in place, without the risk of slipping out of place during eating, speaking or laughing. In addition, bone loss can be prevented using implant dentures since the jaw bone will be adequately stimulated by the implants. Implant-supported dentures also eliminate the need to use messy adhesive creams or special cleaning regimes. By choosing to anchor your dentures to dental implants, you can gain the closest replica to real teeth and a long-lasting confidence in your smile.
One of the most innovative treatment options in implant dentistry are All-on-4 implants. This treatment concept allows a full arch of prosthetic teeth to be attached to a set of four dental implants. The implants use a smaller design and angled placement that require less bone structure than traditional implants, which means that some patients may avoid bone grafting. Most importantly, All-on-4 dental implants can be accomplished in a much shorter timeframe with less recovery involved. Proper imaging of your mouth and a brief consultation with Dr. Sagunarthy can determine your candidacy for All-on-4 implants.
At Carolina Commons Dentistry, we realize that there are many options in teeth replacement. It can quickly get overwhelming to choose a new smile. However, you can trust Dr. Sagunarthy and our dental team to patiently explain your options and help you make an informed decision about your restorative solution. Implant dentures can require a notable expense, but it is important to consider the long-term return on your investment. Implant supported dentures can bring drastic advantages towards your dental health, overall health and quality of life.
