Today, artificial teeth are very important. Dentures are a prosthetic device that not only allows you to eat, speak, and smile confidently but is also comfortable and designed for long term wear.
Dentures have greatly improved over the years. In the past, a custom mold would be created to fit your mouth but structural support was always an issue.
Loose or ill-fitting dentures can affect speech, self-confidence and even your diet. Having a good set of healthy teeth allows you to chew healthy foods like raw veggies so you can get the nutrients necessary for your body to thrive. If placed incorrectly eating can be very difficult and the dentures can cause pain or slurred speech.
For those who have lost most or all of their teeth due to injury, tooth decay, or age, immediate implant supported dentures are a great way to recreate a great functional smile quickly.
All on 4 Immediate Implant Supported Dentures
The All on 4 dental implant system focuses on retention and anticipates muscular function as to not compromise denture stability. We use our mouths to communicate and eat, so we need a device thatís flexible enough to allow us to perform everyday facial gestures effectively. Itís also a great option for those who are looking for a quick solution since your teeth can be created in just one day.
Implant supported dentures take advantage of implants to create more stability in your smile. Rather than creating a mold of your teeth that sits on top of your gums, four titanium posts are inserted into the upper and lower jaw and the bottom of the denture fits into the posts, clicking into place. The results are permanent teeth that mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
Immediate dentures that are comfortable and fit comfortably can improve a patientís quality of life and offer many psychological benefits.

Although designed for long term wear, your traditional dentures will need to be realigned or remade overtime since your mouth changes as you age. This can cause dentures to feel loose and irritate gums so see Dr. Gray for a check up on a regular basis.
