Dental Implant Dentures In One Visit

el paso all on four

When you have lost most of your teeth, you need a prosthetic to restore function and beauty to your smile again. For a new set of dentures that are fixed in place like natural teeth, we could secure All-On-Four in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Sunny Smiles team talks about secure and lifelike same-day dental implant dentures.

The Impact of Total Tooth Loss

Losing the majority of your teeth could mean that your meals are severely limited, usually to only soft foods. You could find yourself unable to enjoy your favorite dishes and also depriving your body of essential nutrients. Near-total tooth loss also means trouble speaking clearly and engaging in social situations. But the body will also respond to your missing roots by suspending the flow of certain nutrients to the jawbone around them, which means a breakdown linked to a prematurely aged appearance. But with dental implant-supported dentures, we can secure a set in one visit that preserves your jaw and facial structure, while also returning function and beauty to your smile.

Securing All-On-Four Dentures

Our team begins with a detailed examination of your smile and your jawbone with digital imaging technology. We then extract the last few teeth and take detailed images and measurements, which are used to plan the placement of your posts, so we can insert your implants at the right angle, position, and depth. Instead of using between six and eight per arch, we can support a full set with only four posts! Which reduces the chances of requiring grafting or a sinus lift beforehand. We can also complete your new smile in one visit too, no need to be without teeth while waiting for the placement areas to heal and the new roots to fuse with your jaw.

Connecting Your Finished Prosthetic

Once we insert your four dental implant posts, our team will attach abutments to them, which provide structure for us to connect a set of dentures too. We may attach your final dentures in this visit, or we could connect a temporary and swap it for your final at a later date. Regardless, you are leaving our office with a full smile, one that looks and functions like natural teeth. If you have any questions about how we secure All-On-Four in only one visit, or if you have severe tooth loss that needs attention, then contact our team today to get started.
