Dental Implants: Securing Your Smile
Dr. Patel offers implant dentistry and can work with you on an individual basis to determine if dental implants are the solution to a permanent, stable and naturally functioning smile. Dental implants can be used to secure a denture and offer several key benefits for your long term oral health:
- Reduced bone loss: the implanted post acts as a prosthetic tooth root and helps to stabilize bone tissue in the jaw.
- Enables a normal diet: there is typically no need for food restrictions and implants allow for normal chewing.
- No slipping dentures: patients feel more confident in their smile with implant secured dentures. The stability also reduces irritation of gums and soft tissues.
All On Four® in Bradenton
Dr. Patel will determine the number of implants necessary to secure your denture and offers the All-On-Four procedure for the replacement of a full arch of teeth. Using as few as four strategically placed implants, All On Four® utilizes advanced planning to coordinate the surgical placement of posts and the attachment of a temporary denture during one visit. Dental impressions, digital imagery and 3-D printing of a surgical guide all play a role in the accurate placement of dental implants to stabilize your new smile.
All On Four can often enable patients with diminished jaw bone to successfully use dental implants to secure a new denture. With this technique, dental implants are placed at angles in the jaw to maximize healthy jaw bone. A custom hybrid denture that is color matched to your appearance will be attached to the implants for a beautiful new smile that feels natural and functions like normal teeth.
