Traditional dentures and other similar appliances are often uncomfortable because they are dependent on complicated methods to keep them in place. This isn’t the case with implant-supported dentures which are adhered to your jaw just like your original teeth. This gives them a comfortable, natural feel that can’t be beat.
Chew comfortably, speak confidently, and smile beautifully with implant-supported dentures.
One of the most common complaints about traditional dentures and false teeth is how they are prone to slip out of place. This is even more frustrating because they often require the application of messy adhesives to stay in place only to slip!
But slippage isn’t a concern with dental implants. They provide a secure and stable smile by being secured comfortably to your jaw, just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants like our All-On-Four ® treatment don’t only restore the cosmetics of your smile, but also simulate your natural teeth. That’s right! Dental implants can restore any lost function that missing teeth have caused; once again you can enjoy your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile confidently!
All these benefits and more, like reducing your risk of gum disease and stopping jawbone deterioration.
It goes without saying that our teeth are fundamental for dental health. For example, they provide stimulation to keep our jawbones healthy. When you are missing teeth, you are at risk of losing up to 30% of your jawbone density!
This can be avoided and reversed with implant-supported dentures as they provide the same stimulation required for a healthy jaw and strong bite.
Even if you have lost all of your teeth, our dental implants like the All-On-Four ® treatment can provide a brand new smile that looks and feels natural. Incredible, isn’t it? With only four dental implants, you can get a completely new smile that is cosmetically pleasing and promotes proper dental health.
So don’t go another day with an incomplete smile, contact our office to begin the journey to a gorgeous grin.
Dental implants are incredible replacements for missing teeth, but can also replace compromised teeth. If any teeth are at risk of being lost due to factors like dental trauma or advanced tooth decay, removing them can be the first step in getting a brand-new smile.
If this is necessary for your procedure, it will be discussed during a consultation including anesthesia preferences like our sedation dentistry options.
Much of the success of dental implants depends on a healthy jaw. But, as you may know, missing teeth may weaken your jawbone. Not to worry! Here at Oceanside Dental Excellence, we can strengthen your jawbone with a straightforward procedure called bone grafting.
Once the graft is placed, your jaw will begin to incorporate the graft material, increasing the strength of the bone to make it ready for a dental implant.
To simulate a natural tooth and provide you all the oral health benefits of one, dental implants are placed securely and comfortably into your jawbone. This requires minor surgery where the first section of the implant (called a post or rod) is attached to the bone so it can simulate the root of your new tooth.
These posts are made out of top-tier materials like titanium, ensuring your new tooth will last a lifetime.
At Oceanside Dental Excellence, we are dedicated to ensuring that you not only get the best dental care available, but each treatment is also as comfortable as possible. To accomplish this, a recovery period is necessary after the initial implant placement. This helps the implant connect with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, which plays a major role in your implant’s success.
A dental implant is made up of three sections: the implant, abutment, and crown/denture prosthesis. The abutment is the connector piece between the implant and the crown/denture prosthesis. With the implant now secure, we will attach the abutment to the implant by making a minor incision along the gums.
While this is a minor procedure, we still allow for another recovery period to ensure your health and comfort.
After the recovery period from the abutment placement is over, we can complete your dental implant by placing the final section: the crown or denture prosthesis. A dental crown is a prosthetic to replace the chewing part of your tooth. Ours are made of durable, stain-resistant materials like biocompatible ceramic or porcelain. Once placed, they will look and function just like a natural tooth, and you can smile with confidence once again!
Once your implant-supported dentures are placed, they will begin to act just like your natural teeth. However, it can take some patients time to get used to them. Depending on the complexity of the implants (the more teeth replaced, the more complex the procedure), you may experience some dental discomfort.
You can limit discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers and using an icepack if there is any swelling.
Here at Oceanside Dental Excellence, we go above and beyond to ensure you get the right treatment to meet your dental health needs and goals. To do this, we offer several different kinds of treatments, from a single tooth being replaced with a single dental implant, to our All-on-4® treatment concept that can restore every tooth.
Read below to discover which implant suits you and contact us with any further questions!
Traditional dentures or false teeth rest atop of your gums, requiring messy adhesives to stay in place. With implant-retained dentures, you don’t have to worry about adhesives or your new teeth slipping out of place ever again!
Why? Because these dentures are connected to implants directly in your jaw, providing a beautiful smile and improving your dental health. So say so long to slippage with these dentures!
Some patients might not like the thought of permanently placed dentures, and that is okay. At Oceanside Dental Excellence, we offer dental appliances that are easy to place and easy to remove. These snap-on dentures can be clicked into place whenever you need them, and removed for convenience or cleaning while avoiding the need for any adhesives.
Smile on your terms with these removable implant-supported dentures!
If you have suffered from serious dental trauma or the majority of your teeth harmed by disease, infection, or decay, the All-on-4® treatment concept may be the solution you’ve been waiting for. You can replace every tooth with the strategic placement of only 4 implants.
The All-on-4® treatment concept will restore your smile while improving chewing and speaking and lowering the risk of gum disease.
The All-on-6 treatment (sometimes referred to as the 3-on-6), is very similar to the All-on-4® treatment concept detailed above. Like the All-on-4® treatment concept, this procedure can replace every single tooth, whether you’ve already lost all your teeth or have a majority of compromised teeth.
Enjoy all the benefits of implant dentures with limited implants; your new smile will look and feel beautiful and natural!
You have two arches in your mouth, the upper arch and the lower one. If you have lost multiple teeth along one arch, there is a solution! With a full arch restoration, dental implants can replace any lost tooth and any lost function from those missing teeth!
This treatment works with your original teeth to optimize your dental health. Best of all, your new teeth match your natural teeth, providing a beautiful smile.
Where a single dental implant is ideal for a single tooth and the All-on-4® treatment concept is perfect for replacing all teeth, there must be a procedure in the middle, right? That is where implant-supported dental bridges come in.
Designed to “bridge” any gaps caused by multiple missing teeth, this treatment restores the beauty of your smile and provides oral health benefits like letting you chew comfortably.
At Oceanside Dental Excellence, we believe an informed patient is a happy one! That is why we’ve included this section to help answer any questions you might have. And of course, feel encouraged to contact our office if you have any other questions or considerations!
By blending cosmetic and restorative benefits into a single procedure, the results of implant-supported dentures are many. You not only get a new, full, beautiful smile, but your new teeth will also have all the functionality of your lost ones.
That means you can chew your favorite foods again, speak without disruption, and know that the risk of gum disease or jawbone deterioration have been severely reduced.
When teeth are lost, your face can change by getting more wrinkles or sagging around the cheeks and mouth.
While traditional dentures address some of these issues, implant-supported dentures can be more preventative by maintaining the strength and dimensions of your jaw and muscles. Thanks to the implant simulating natural tooth roots, your facial muscles and jaw remain healthy and won’t alter your appearance.
It is obvious that our teeth are essential to day-to-day activities like chewing and speaking. When you are missing multiple teeth, it can be difficult to chew your favorite foods and speak without a slight slur.
Thankfully, these problems are resolved with implant-supported dentures. They replace all major functions of your missing teeth, meaning you can once again enjoy all your favorite foods and speak confidently.
At Oceanside Dental Excellence we are proud to provide individualized care to each and every one of our patients to ensure that their dental needs and oral health goals are met. This means that your treatment will be truly personalized, but the costs will vary from patient to patient.
Not to worry. During your free consultation, all treatment costs and payment options will be discussed to best suit your needs.
Thanks to the great quality of our implant-supported dentures, not only do they look and function like natural teeth, they can be cared for like natural teeth! By brushing twice a day, flossing/waterflossing once a day, and going to regular dental checkups, your dental implants will last a lifetime.
Be sure to mention if you suffer from bruxism as a custom mouthguard may be needed to ensure your implant’s longevity.
There are many different insurance policies when it comes to dental coverage. What this means is that it depends on your policy whether implant dentures are fully covered, partially covered, or not covered at all. But not to worry! Our wonderful staff can help you evaluate costs and inform you of financing options available.
For example, flex spending accounts or health spending accounts may help cover this treatment.
Implant-supported dentures are becoming increasingly common thanks to how they blend the benefits of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. However, there are alternatives. Single implants can be used to restore the loss of a single tooth, and traditional dental bridges (that don’t require an implant) are a fantastic way to restore multiple lost teeth.
