What can I do if I want to replace teeth but don't want dentures?
We offer several options for tooth replacement. Dental implants or bridges are appropriate if you’re missing just a few teeth; however, dentures are often the go-to-choice if several or all teeth in an arch are missing.
You may not love the idea of dentures, which is understandable. After all, many people have a love-hate relationship with their dentures. The good news is that we have seen some remarkable advances in the ways dentures are created and stabilized that allow us to customize your denture to make it one of a kind!
An All-on-Four™ denture completely stabilizes and permanently secures the denture base so you don't have to worry about slipping or discomfort! The secret to stable dentures is dental implants. That’s right, now we can create a perfectly secure and comfortable set of full dentures that do not come out of your mouth!
The All-on-Four™ is built upon four (or more in some cases) dental implants that are placed at different points in your jaw. Your dentures are made to permanently attach to the implants. That means you don't have to worry about your dentures moving around or popping out of your mouth when sneezing or laughing! Even better, we can often perform the entire procedure of placing the implants and securing the interim denture all in one visit to our Orland Park dental office!
