Today's patients have numerous options for teeth replacement. Whether you have lost your teeth to periodontal disease, decay, or injury you should seek immediate treatment to replace your missing teeth and preserve your jaw bone. As we lose teeth, the bone will begin to deteriorate without a root to anchor our jaw bone. This lack of bone density can cause problems later when patients start to seek treatment. Dr. Peter Masone at Denture and Dental Services specializes in teeth replacement.
Implant retained dentures can replace both upper and lower teeth, giving you a secure, natural-looking option that is not only more comfortable, but also more convenient than traditional dentures. Shifting and moving is one of the most common complaints with patients who wear removable dentures. If this is a concern, we can recommend the placement of dental implants that offer the ultimate in stability and virtually eliminate uncomfortable movement.
Implant retained dentures look and feel more like natural teeth. They are inserted directly into the jawbone like the roots of natural teeth and the denture is securely fixed to the implants, so you won’t even know you have any false teeth at all. If you add just two implants to secure your dentures, studies have shown that you can double your chewing power and reduce your chewing time by half. Using four or more implants, we can eliminate the need for dentures altogether. By keeping the supportive structures of your mouth engaged, implant retained dentures help preserve your function and appearance.
All-On-4™ Treatment Concept
There is great news for patients seeking dental implant treatment who might have issues with bone density or volume. Dr. Masone provides the All-On-4™ Treatment Concept that is designed to supply a whole set of new teeth while utilizing only four implants! This technology allows for the immediate function of teeth and rarely requires bone grafting procedures, making All-on-4™ an excellent solution for patients with low bone density. Over the past decade, patients have benefited from a 98.5 percent success rate at the four-year follow-up appointment. After the dental implants are placed, your new or existing dentures act as a temporary set of teeth and are anchored on top of your dental implants that same day. You will never be without your teeth! After fully healing, which takes about three to six months, a new and final set of teeth are made and attached permanently.
Denture and Dental Services works closely with the dental surgeon to fabricate a denture to fit correctly to existing implants. We work with one of the top oral surgeons in the Southeast who removes your teeth, then places your implants – all while you’re comfortably sedated. When the process is complete, Dr. Masone will fit your new dentures.
Benefits of All-On-4™ Treatment Concept:
• Long term results
• For many, no bone grafting procedures needed
• Shorter recovery time
• Stabilizes bone level
• No need for troublesome removable appliances
• Enjoy and eat any and all foods
• Simple home care and oral hygiene
