If you’ve been wearing dentures for a long time, or if you feel you cannot afford the cost of a complete oral rehabilitation treatment with dental implants, then implant-retained dentures are the perfect solution for you! At Dr M. Andrew Johnson DDS, we use the all-on-four, or all-on-six approach to fix complete dentures in place with the help of implants. There numerous benefits associated with this treatment, the most prominent of which include: zero chances of denture displacement or movement in the mouth when the patient eats or speaks, no need to use denture adhesives, better support and better aesthetics, firm anchorage for the dentures, and no chances of losing the prostheses!
With the help of just four or six dental implants, patients who have no teeth present in their mouth, can regain their masticatory and speech function completely. Titanium implants have unmatched strength, and fuse well with the surrounding jaw bone, thus giving the denture plates adequate support. The results so far have been outstanding, and more and more patients are getting drawn towards the treatment owing to its many benefits, and affordability factor. Radiographs and complete medical/drug/family histories are taken from patients before deeming them eligible for the procedure.
