How long have you been wearing those same dentures? Here’s a better question: how long have those same dentures been driving you mad? Those answers are probably pretty similar, because let’s face it: dentures are miserable.
For as long as you’ve been wearing dentures you’ve probably been wishing there was a way to replace them with something better, and you might not even realize that there’s a solution available at Westwood Dental Smiles. We’ve been placing All-On-Four dental implants for years, and these amazing permanent full mouth bridges are the perfect way to get rid of your dentures for good!
What Is All-On-Four?
Using just four dental implants – titanium screws that mimic the function of tooth roots – we can attach a full arch of teeth that are fixed in place permanently. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth and are remarkably functional. Once you get used to them you’ll feel like you’re young again!
But we don’t want to spend all day talking about what All-On-Four is. We want to talk about how amazing they are. The best way we can think of to do that is to tell you what life will be like once you’re sporting a new permanent set of All-On-Four teeth!
Eat What You Want
When is the last time you bit into an apple? How about a burger? How long has it been since you were able to enjoy anything without cutting into tiny little bites first? That kind of life is a daily reality for denture wearers, and if you’ve been living like that you’re probably all but fed up.
All-On-Four implants and bridges are able to restore approximately 90 percent of the chewing force that natural teeth have. That means you’ll be enjoying all but the toughest and stickiest foods again – something you could never dream of doing in dentures.
The four implants that support all-on-four dentures are placed at precise angles and locations that are able to bear the entire weight of a set of teeth. Before you know it you’ll be completely used to chewing with a permanent set of teeth again – life couldn’t get better!
Say Goodbye To Irritation
Do your dentures irritate your gums? A lot of denture wearers deal with this, and some deal with it constantly. When your dentures loosen up, which generally happens over time as your bone structure changes, things go south quick. They slide, the slip, they rub, and they push, all of which lead to some serious irritation.
On top of that, think about the structure of your mouth: your teeth are anchored to your bone – the gums aren’t meant to deal with as much force as dentures put on them!
You won’t need to deal with that kind of pain when you wear All-On-Four. Dental implants distribute force the way they’re supposed to: into your bone. Your bridge will rest firmly against your gums but it won’t push on them and cause irritation. All you’ll have to deal with is comfort and an easy smile.
No More Embarrassment Or Shame
Patient satisfaction with dentures decreases steadily the longer they wear them, and it’s easy to see why! The longer you have to deal with the stress of constantly thinking about your teeth the harder it is to simply live your life!
Dentures can be extremely mentally taxing: every single thing you do with your mouth has to be carefully planned to avoid your teeth falling out! Smiling, speaking, eating … some of the most basic things you do become difficult, stressful experiences.
It’s not uncommon to find a denture wearer’s social life suffering pretty severely. Many people avoid seeing family, going on outings with friends, or leaving the house because of the fear of embarrassment or denture accidents. No one deserves to live like that!
All-On-Four will make tooth troubles a thing of the past. You’ll be sporting a set of teeth that will look real, act real, and most of all feel real. We’re confident that you’ll be amazed with your new teeth – you won’t be able to stop smiling!
