Reclaim Your Life With All On Four Implants In Las Cruces
Welcome back to the Advanced Dental blog! Our practice is your trusted source for comprehensive dentistry solutions in Las Cruces, New Mexico. We try to make it easy for you to stay on the good road, as far as oral health is concerned.
We can tell you with great certainty that losing teeth as an adult is never a good thing, but it’s much more common than you might imagine. One dislodged tooth is inconvenient and somewhat embarrassing, but losing several or all of your teeth can have a big impact on your quality of life. Things will never be the same again. But with restorative dentistry we will be able to give you the closest thing to the real thing, All on Four dental implants, which can allow you to take back the life you knew.
Without Teeth, Life Is Difficult
Teeth are pretty important to our daily existence. As such, if you are missing a full arch of teeth, you already know it has changed your life. Not for the better!
When you don’t have any teeth, it can change the appearance of your face. As you lose teeth, you lose bone density as well. This can give your face a collapsed appearance and make you appear much, much older than you actually are. And who wants that?
In additional to the emotional impact of missing several teeth, you will have physical consequences as well. You see, when you don’t have enough teeth, you can’t bite into things, and you can’t chew your food the way you need to.
You won’t be able to eat everything you love or even the things that are really good for you. Ultimately this could mean a limited diet of soft foods and liquids. We can’t imagine you want to spend the rest of your life dining on mashed potatoes, applesauce, milk shakes, and the like.
So, why would someone put off treatment?
In certain instances, embarrassment prevents patients from seeking the dental care they need. We hope that isn’t keeping you away. Rest assured, we would rather see you while you have some teeth to save then see you when it is too late to help in a significant way. There won’t be any lectures or frowns from our crew.
We are very pleased to report that dental implants (including All On Four) can save you from dealing with the problems already discussed and help you begin enjoying life once again.
So, let us explain how we can turn things around.
All On Four Can Help
Dental implants replace the roots of your teeth. Like your roots, your dental implants stimulate the jawbone, and this spurs new growth. This growth keeps your jawbone healthy and prevents bone loss.
To get the full impact of a dental implant, you need to attach something to replace the crowns of your teeth as well. If you were missing one tooth, we would add a dental crown. If you lost three or four teeth, we would recommend a dental bridge.
If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, however, All on Four may be your best option. With All on Four, you can go from having no teeth to having the appearance of a full set of teeth in a day.
That’s pretty amazing, right?
And All on Four from Advanced Dental is just what it sounds like. We start by strategically placing four dental implants inside your jawbone. Then, we attach a set of implant-secured dentures to your implants.
In other words, you regain the appearance of all your teeth on four dental implants.
But All on Four dental implants aren’t just about looks. If that’s all you were interested in, then dentures might be an acceptable option.
The problem with most dentures is that you have significantly less bite force than you did when you had all your teeth. All on Four dental implants give you back both the look of your real teeth and something very close to the function of those teeth as well.
Your dental implants are held securely in place by your jawbone, and that give you significantly more stability than you can expect with other kinds of dentures. With All on Four, you can eat all the foods you love without worrying about your dentures coming loose when you bite or chew.
That solution is just what you need, if that sounds like your situation.
