Spodak Dental Group: Dentures are Not the Answer

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Unfortunately, wearing unsecured dentures can often be painful, inconvenient, and awkward. Dentures make chewing foods difficult, which will often hinder people from eating the foods they once enjoyed. Additionally, poorly fitting dentures can lead to sore spots or painful blisters on the gums that may lead to infection.

Missing teeth can also cause the jawbone to shrink through bone loss. This is because the bone is no longer stimulated when you chew food – something that happens routinely when you use your natural teeth. This bone loss causes physical changes to your face, and you begin to appear older than you really are. As the jaw line shrinks, it also causes dentures to lose their fit. They often slip, cause pain, or even become embarrassing, require the use of messy creams and adhesives to stay in place, and must be removed each night for cleaning.

The most common complaints we hear from our patients at Spodak Dental Group are that they often feel restricted, less attractive, and less confident, which impacts their personal and professional lives. In short, their quality of life is definitely diminished.

Attractive, healthy teeth are important for health and overall well-being, and dentures are clearly not the answer.

The Best Solution

Modern implant-based dentistry has provided a solution to the edentulous (toothless) patient that traditional dentures have never been able to deliver – immediate functionality with substantially increased quality of life.

The "All-on-Four" Procedure

Spodak Dental Group accomplishes this through the use of a prosthesis held solidly in place by four dental implants (the "All-on-Four" Procedure) which not only provides the comfort and security a patient is likely to be missing with removable dentures, but as importantly also preserves bone in the jaw.

This "All-on-Four" solution is attractive to patients wanting to get rid of their dentures, and to people with failing teeth in need of a full upper and/or lower restoration. This procedure, as the name implies, only requires four dental implants per jaw to support a fully customized set of replacement teeth. The entire "All-on-Four" treatment is completed while the patient is comfortably asleep using sedation dentistry, and the best part is that the procedure is painless and the patient receives their full set of replacement teeth in just one day.

Another tremendous benefit afforded by the "All-on-Four" procedure is its ability to almost always bypass the need for bone grafting – a surgery frequently required by more traditional treatment for patients with substantial loss of bone in the jaw.

The "All-on-Four" procedure eliminates the day-to-day frustrations and discomforts of dentures, and patients can once again enjoy the dietary freedom of those with natural teeth. It is the most sophisticated solution there is to tooth loss and edentulism. Its advantages over dentures have made it the preferred option to the millions of people that require extensive oral rehabilitation.
