If you’re concerned you won’t be able to enjoy food as much with replacement teeth, call Lakewood Dental Centre at (204) 977-8515 to learn about the many perks of All-on-4 dental implants!
We offer a wide variety of dental implants and other restorative dentistry options at our Winnipeg, MB dentist office to suit your specific needs. Whether you need all the teeth replaced in your upper or lower jaw or both for a full-mouth reconstruction, we have options for you!
All-on-4 dental implants are very convincing and many of our patients love them for various reasons. Here are just a few:
- Because dental implants fuse with your jawbone through a process called “osseointegration,” they create a sturdy foundation and allow you to chew with a lot of power
- Since All-on-4 dental implants are attached to your jawbone instead of resting on your gums, they are in a more natural position
- By filling the place that your natural tooth roots used to occupy, dental implants prevent jawbone deterioration, helping you maintain both the health of your jawbone and your youthful look
- All-on-4 dental implants can be cared for easily and treated just like your natural teeth so you don’t have to deal with special cleansers and soaking agents
For your convenience, we offer some flexible hours outside the standard nine-to-five that you probably expect from a dentist. We stay late some days (as late as 8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays!) and open early at 7:00 a.m. three days a week.
Regain Your Oral Function With All-On-4 Dental Implants
Dentures are a great restorative treatment that has been used in some capacity or another for hundreds of years. While they have undergone a lot of updates throughout modern dentistry, dentures do have some drawbacks compared to other options.
Some of these drawbacks, like having to use denture adhesives and sealants, may come to mind if you or someone you know has dentures. But other cons of dentures – like how you experience food – may not come as immediately to mind.
All-on-4 dental implants can replace a full arch of teeth just like dentures, but they are held in place by four dental implants per arch that are specially positioned and angled for optimum strength and function.
Because of how they are attached, All-on-4 dental implants do not need to cover the roof of your mouth. (Traditional dentures in your upper jaw do cover your palate, mainly to create extra suction for a secure hold.)
Since your palate remains uncovered with All-on-4 dental implants, you’ll be able to enjoy your food more fully. And if you don’t think that your palate affects how you experience certain foods, just think of how often you touch the roof of your mouth when you are eating peanut butter!
All-on-4 dental implants also maintain a strong hold that traditional dentures simply can’t match. You won’t have to worry anymore about your teeth coming loose when you are biting into a juicy steak or crisp vegetables. Your replacement teeth will stay firmly in place and deliver a strong bite. You may even forget that you’ve had your teeth replaced!
Because you’ll be able to eat the foods you love again, you may even improve your overall health as well. You’ll be able to eat a balanced diet of foods that are good for you but are difficult to chew with traditional dentures.
You may also improve your overall health with All-on-4 dental implants as well because you might chew your food more thoroughly, thus improving your digestion.
In order to be a candidate for dental implants, your jawbone will need to be healthy, dense, and strong. To determine if All-on-4 dental implants would be a good solution for your situation, we will thoroughly evaluate your particular case.
Regardless of which procedures you get from us, we will always do our part to make you comfortable. If we suspect you may experience any discomfort, we will numb your mouth with an anesthetic. We also offer various amenities, including dental sedation to help relieve dental anxiety if you’d like.
Our friendly team will answer any questions you may have and listen intently to your concerns.
