A denture is a removable dental appliance that restores your smile by filling in missing teeth. Dentures are custom made to fit the specific bite of the patient. It is meant to replace natural teeth and provide support for the cheeks and lips. While modern dentures fit more comfortably and securely and they look more like the patient’s natural teeth, they are not without issues. Over time they can get loose, get worn down and sometimes even break.
At Grove City Dental, we offer patients a new kind of denture that drastically lessens the issues caused by traditional dentures.
All On 4 Dentures
Today’s dentures are capable of fitting more securely while reducing irritation to patients’ gums and other soft tissue of the mouth. This is done by combining the structural support of dentures and the stability of implants. These hybrid dentures are called All on 4s. These dentures involve inserting 4 titanium implants into the jaw bone, with two on each side of the mouth. The titanium implants provide a strong foundation for the denture which keeps the appliance from sliding and slipping and irritating the gums. The reduced movement of the dentures help to also preserve the bone structure of the jaw. Eating and cleaning one’s teeth is easier with All on 4 dentures.
