Dentures often end up fitting poorly as your jawbone deteriorates with age. The teeth on the dentures shift further towards the back, causing your lips to lose natural support and your dentures to become loose and uncomfortable.
Rather than living with the discomfort and hassles of dentures, many patients are opting for a revolutionary treatment with dental implants known as All-on-4. At Glenholme Dental Centre, All-on-4 dental implants in Basingstoke provide patients with a new arch of teeth that is secured by as little as four dental implants – all installed on the same day. This treatment is ideal for patients who already have or need dentures because they have lost most of their natural teeth.
How do All-on-4 dental implants differ from regular dentures?
All-on-4 dental implants are different from dentures in many ways. To start with, they are permanently fixed in your mouth and do not need to be removed after meals or while you sleep. They also restore your biting and chewing power considerably, allowing you to eat your favourite foods. All-on-4 dental implants are not supported by your gums like conventional dentures, therefore they are less likely to cause irritation or inflammation. More importantly, they can prevent bone loss and encourage the growth of new bone tissue. Finally, All-on-4 dental implants are very cost-effective in the long run because they do not incur repeated expenses such as dental adhesives, soaking solutions or other products needed for conventional dentures.
Am I a good candidate for All-on-4 dental implants in Basingstoke?
When it comes to dental implants, age is not an issue. Most patients are eligible for All-on-4 dental implants as long as they have lost most of their natural teeth. During your initial consultation, we will assess the state of your teeth as well as your medical history, looking out for factors that could render oral surgery risky, such as gum disease or diabetes.
