What Is the Best Alternative to Dentures?
Updated: Jul 29, 2022
Many adults with missing teeth often find themselves looking for better alternatives to dentures. Missing teeth, or the complete loss of top or bottom teeth—or both, also known as edentulism—is a common problem faced today by older adults. Tooth loss can have a negative impact on many aspects of a person’s life, including their appearance, speech, self confidence, nutrition, and overall health and quality of life.
In the past, adults missing teeth have commonly turned to dentures. Dentures have been around for a very long time, and they have been the tried-and-true answer for most of the population. However, there is now a more comfortable, modern alternative to dentures: dental implants.
Meet the Best Alternative to Dentures: Dental Implants
Dental Implants are the best alternative to dentures—but not just any dental implants. The All-On-4 dental implants will return your smile back to its original beauty, with a much shorter surgical procedure and recovery time than traditional dental implants. Dr. Nicolas Bebeau specializes in this revolutionary tooth-replacement option.
The All-On-4 dental implant solution is a better alternative to dentures as they are a fixed (not moveable like dentures) and permanent solution to missing teeth. In addition, dental implants maintain your current bone while dentures allow for further bone deterioration resulting in the elderly, sunken-in look.. An All-On-4 treatment solution will provide you with a more natural looking and feeling smile.
More Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants
Perhaps the best part of the All-On-4 dental implants is how quick the procedure and recovery time is for the implants. Commonly referred to as “same-day smile”, or “smile in a day”, the procedure allows you to get dental implants and bridges in your entire mouth in just one day - a single surgery!
While traditional dental implants would require an implant and a crown for each individual tooth, as well as an extensive recovery time, the All-on-4 treatment only requires 4 implants for an entire bridge of new teeth! For a full set of teeth (top and bottom), you will only need 8 implants.
Why should you choose All-On-4 Dental Implants as an Alternative to Dentures?
Dentures need to be removed before bed each night.
All-On-4 dental implants are permanently fixed to the jaw. No removing at night!
Dentures require additional tools, such as adhesives and special cleaning solutions, which will cost you money. Dentures must also be soaked every night and cleaned extensively in the morning before you put them in your mouth.
All-on-4 implants can be cleaned in a very similar manner to the way you cleaned your natural teeth.
All-on-4 implants are a more permanent solution.
All-on-4 implants can replace an entire set of teeth in one day and a single surgery.
All-on-4 implants are more natural looking than dentures.
If you’re considering the All-on-4 procedure as an alternative to dentures, one of the most important things you can do is find a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who regularly performs the procedure with an impeccable reputation.
