Dental Implants

If you have missing or broken teeth, you may understand the embarrassment caused by smiling, or the pain involved in chewing or biting. Dental implants are a long process, but once installed, they look and act like real teeth—which means you can smile and laugh as you like, and can eat whatever you please. If you’ve ever felt nervous of what you can or can’t do with your dentures or missing teeth, full mouth rehabilitation implant treatments like All-on-4 will benefit you. There is no more anxiety that is often the case when wearing traditional dentures, and their natural sturdiness protects you for years to come. It’s truly liberating.

70% of Adults Have Lost At Least One Tooth

Dental implants are widely considered to be the healthiest and most natural way to replace missing teeth. Just like natural teeth, dental implants stimulate the jaw bone and perform several other vital functions in the mouth. Implants will put a stop to any further natural bone resorption over time.

Prevents Additional Tooth Loss

Your teeth need one another for support. One missing toot alone can result in more strain on the teeth and cause several problems, including misalignment and tooth loss. Your jaw muscles create an incredible amount of crushing force. The job of managing this force falls on healthy teeth as they provide strength and stability while protecting the jaw. Missing teeth means exerting more stress on the remaining teeth, which can lead to further dental health issues.

Difficulty Chewing

One missing tooth may not have a huge effect on your chewing abilities but if a domino effect occurs and leads to multiple missing teeth, you may not be able to enjoy certain foods. As a result, your diet will become limited to softer, more processed foods that are generally not enjoyable or healthy. These foods tend to be starchy or high in carbohydrates and often result in unhealthy abdominal fat buildup and chronic fatigue. Sometimes, problems such as weight loss, indigestion, and constipation can occur.

Bone Loss

Every tooth is surrounded by a special type of bone that exists solely to hold your teeth in place. When a tooth is lost, that bone ceases to have a function and will become resorbed by the body. This can cause many functional and aesthetic problems. Since a good portion of this deterioration occurs within the first year of tooth loss, it is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible.

Facial Collapse

The back teeth can wear down more quickly than the front teeth because this is where most chewing takes place. When you lose a tooth or teeth, the remaining ones tend to drift, shift, and tilt. Together, these effects can cause the vertical height of your face to shrink. This means that the chin will move upward while the nose and lips move downward to form a frown-like appearance.

Cavity Resistance

Dental Implants are made from biocompatible materials such as zirconium or titanium. These materials simply do not decay, unlike natural teeth. The implications for this is most important for our patients who have dry mouth syndrome (xerostomia)—the lack of protection from a healthy saliva flow will cause most types of conventional dentistry to fail, sometimes within a few months.

When a complete set of new teeth are installed with All-On-4, we often see our patients gain about 5-15 lbs. because of their new teeth as they get better access to nutrition. The Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of the world famous, Dr.  Mayo Clinic stated that “people who keep their teeth live and average 10 years longer than people who lose their teeth due to poor nutrition.” Now that’s truly life changing!
