If you’re worried about whether you can still have a healthy, beautiful smile after gum disease treatment, look no further. Knoxville, TN gum disease patients can still benefit from a full arch of permanent dental restorations with All-On-Four implant secured dentures. Using just a few tiny dental implants, Dr. Robert Cain can permanently secure your restorations for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
Permanent Dentures After Periodontal Disease
Commercially known as All-On-FourⓇ implants, implant-secured dentures are a relatively new treatment that restores the appearance and full functionality of a full arch of teeth without the problems normally encountered by denture users. Using modern 3D computer imaging and treatment planning, Dr. Cain can design your prosthetic arch of teeth which will then be permanently mounted in your mouth on only 4 implants giving you a youthful, healthy smile.
In addition to restoring the natural appearance of your smile, All-On-Four dentures improve the health and integrity of the jawbone due to the implants promoting the growth of healthy new bone tissue. Best of all, implant-secured dentures eliminate the need for messy denture adhesives and the worry of embarrassing denture slippages, allowing recipients to eat, drink, speak, and smile confidently for a lifetime.
How Does All-On-Four Work?
Depending on how much bone deterioration occurred from gum disease, anywhere from four to six implants can support a full arch of permanent dentures. All-On-Four is often used in patients who have been missing teeth for a long time or who have completed gum disease treatment. Dr. Cain will carefully examine your jaw and use detailed treatment planning to place your implants correctly.
Dental implants preserve the integrity of the underlying jawbone tissue while also promoting the growth of new, healthy bone. And, instead of replacing only one or two teeth at a time, All On Four can restore a full arch in one appointment. You’ll leave with a temporary restoration while the implants heal so you’re never without teeth, and you’ll return later for your permanent restoration.
With good daily oral hygiene and regular checkups, All-On-Four implant-secured dentures can last a lifetime. You’ll keep your new smile for the rest of your life!
