Woodbridge dentist Dr. Joseph Cavallo offers options for replacing missing teeth and restoring a functional, healthy smile.
When a patient is missing most or all of his/her teeth, dentures are typically the best option for replacement. Missing teeth affect your daily quality of life: teeth are instrumental in chewing, speaking, eating, etc.
There are several types of dentures a patient can choose from, and Dr. Cavallo will recommend the one most suited to your dental health needs, personal concerns and budget. Whenever possible, he will recommend using dental implant secured dentures because they can provide a better quality of life for patients when compared to conventional dentures.
Benefits of implant secured dentures:
- No daily maintenance and use of adhesives
- Secure, stable fit with no worried about slippage
- Support bone stability in the jaw for better overall health
- Custom color matched and fit to enhance your natural appearance
Dental implant secured dentures look and function like natural teeth. Designed to be long lasting, they allow for more natural biting, chewing, and speaking. Dentures that are secured by implants reduce bow loss and jaw shrinkage because the tiny implanted posts will act like a tooth root and stimulate healthy bone growth.
To place dental implant secured dentures, also known as “all-on-four”, several strategically placed implants are placed into the jaw bone. The implant will need several months to heal and bond with the jaw bone. Temporary dentures can be worn during this time. After the implants and jaw have healed sufficiently, your new dentures can be attached to the implants.
Your beautiful new smile will not only restore your quality of life, but also boost your confidence in your appearance.
