We live in an age where we have multiple options for tooth replacement. Vela Loftin Dental Center can provide traditional dentures, but for those looking for an alternative, Dr. Vela and Dr. Loftin also offer all-on-four implants that will provide you with those most natural looking smile.
Health-Conscious Dental Technology in Alice
Dental implants have significant health benefits over traditional dentures: they minimize bone loss, and they maximize healthy gum tissue. By using two implants on the upper and lower jaw, our Alice dentists can provide you with dentures that have the look and feel of a beautiful and natural smile. All-on-four implant dentures offer the least amount of posts to support the most amount of teeth. This implant technology also provides more comfort than traditional dentures.
Regain Your Confidence
Multiple oral health factors tied to implant-supported dentures can cause the wearer to feel more confident. This confidence that people regain after implant-supported dentures have been implemented is invaluable.
Traditional dentures can slip and not feel secure, a potential cause for feeling insecure with your smile. This is completely eliminated with implant-supported dentures, as their stability causes them to feel much more like normal teeth. They are more comfortable than traditional dentures because they do not press down on your gums and they don’t cover the roof of your mouth. In addition to removing that claustrophobic sensation, you can taste your food better and experience temperature as you have always been used to when the roof of the mouth is exposed. Implant-supported dentures can even restore your facial muscles, which may have begun to sag without the support of teeth. Because of these elements to implant-supported dentures, you can smile again with confidence!
How Do I Know if I’m a Candidate?
A thorough exam must be done by Dr. Vela or Dr. Loftin to see if implant-supported dentures are right for you. Since bone loss occurs when you lose teeth, it is very important to make sure there is sufficient bone structure available in order to place the dental implants. You may require additional preliminary work before receiving dental implants.
