When you find yourself in a position where you are missing multiple teeth on either or both arches, you may be tempted by the affordability and ease of traditional dentures. Before you make this decision, do yourself a favor and visit Dr. Geomel Bebing, Dr. Harun Ayouby and the team at Signature Smiles Dental in Riverside, California. Dr. Bebing can tell you how All on X dental implants are a tooth replacement option that will benefit your oral health and provide other benefits that tooth replacement options such as dentures and bridges cannot match.
When you choose All on X dental implants, you choose a dental solution that will last you a lifetime. Utilizing just four dental implants, in combination with a tooth restoration option, including a dental bridge or dentures, you can expect your implants to last forever with proper dental care. This is made possible through a process called osseointegration, during which your dental implants will physically fuse with your jawbone, becoming an actual part of your mouth. This creates a solid and durable anchor that will make your replacement teeth feel completely natural and last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene.
When you choose a tooth restoration option that is not an implant, you risk that it will not remain as durable or stable as a dental implant-supported tooth. A great example is a denture that is held in place by nothing more than dental adhesive. These dentures can sometimes slip and slide around in the mouth and even fall out. Because they are not as durable or stable, you can even have trouble eating certain foods that require a more challenging chew. When you choose All on X dental implants, they will be surgically inserted into the jawbone, providing unmatched strength and stability. You can then elect for implant-supported dentures, which will attach to the implant, allowing you to have a great-looking set of teeth that remain in place and provide the chewing power you require.
If you are looking for a tooth replacement option but, for whatever reason, may lack some of your jawbones, you are not automatically disqualified from being a good candidate for All on X dental implants. The truth is that when you have lost a tooth or teeth, you may have had to choose a more affordable option such as a dental implant or bridge. These solutions do not provide the stimulation your jawbone requires to remain healthy and intact, so, over time, you may have had some jawbone degradation. But now, you are hoping that you can take advantage of dental implants for the many benefits they offer. You could still be in luck because, even if you have some jawbone deficiencies, there are situations where the implants can be inserted into the zygomatic bone, and you can avoid bone grafting.
Have you ever known somebody with traditional dentures who had to give up some of the finer foods in life, such as a nice juicy steak? Because traditional dentures are held in place by dental adhesive, foods that require more extensive chewing often become a thing of the past for those who wear them. This extensive chewing can cause dentures to come loose, slip, slide, or even fall out of the mouth. With dental restorations held in place by All on X dental implants, you never need to worry about this. You can enjoy all the foods you did when you had your natural teeth because these implants are solid and stable.
When it comes to All on X dental implants, cleaning and maintenance of your implants are as easy as cleaning your natural teeth. Because dental implants are joined to your jawbone, removal is not necessary when it is time to sleep or clean them. With other tooth replacement options, such as a denture, you would need to remove them, clean them, and soak them in a specific solution overnight when sleeping. You would then need to ensure your gums, mouth, and tongue are properly cleaned before putting the denture back in using adhesive. When choosing dental implants, you must brush and floss daily and keep up with your regularly scheduled dental examinations and cleaning appointments.
