Implant-Supported Dentures (All-on-4) in Elk Grove Village, IL
When you’re missing multiple teeth (or all of your teeth), you face many issues. Missing teeth may affect your speech and you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. Eating is also a challenge as it’s hard to maintain a healthy diet when you can only eat soft foods.
In the past, the only solution to missing teeth was dentures. There are some drawbacks, however, to wearing dentures. Patients may feel uncomfortable talking at first, and it does take time to learn how to eat many of the foods you enjoy because the dentures can sometimes slip or move around when chewing. There is also a learning curve to getting used to having the full plate in your mouth.
Dental Implants: Another Option for Denture Wearers
Dental implants can provide extra support for the denture, which allows for a more comfortable fit. Implant supported dentures can alleviate denture movement when chewing by anchoring the denture on each side of the jaw. This, in turn, helps the patient get used to their denture more quickly and improves health by allowing the patient to eat the healthy foods they’re used to.
How is this accomplished?
Dr. Advani will carefully place dental implants on each side of the jaw. After the right amount of healing time, which can vary based on a number of factors, the denture is fitted so that it snaps into place with the implants acting as the anchors. This allows for a very secure fit while patients are still able to remove the denture for cleaning. Patients with implant supported dentures tend to adjust to talking and eating with their appliance more quickly.
Am I a Candidate for Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures are not for everyone. You must have enough healthy jawbone to support successful implants. Patients who are smokers or are in poor overall health may not be able to support an implant. It’s also very important to keep up on your oral health and have regular denture checks so that Dr. Advani can ensure that your implants are healthy and your denture is fitting correctly.
