Dentures Can Restore Smile Function

Metairie, LA dentures

When you lose your natural teeth, this can impact multiple facets of your daily life, including how you eat and your ability to speak clearly. Dentures can address your missing teeth, but with dental implant dentures, we can offer results that are ready to last for years to come. At your Metairie, LA, oral surgery clinic, we’re talking about restoring the function, health, and beauty of your smile with All-On-Four fixed dentures.

The Impact of Advanced Tooth Loss

Losing the vast majority of your teeth could lead to serious trouble for your oral health and your quality of life too. Edentulism, or total tooth loss, means severe limitations on your meal options and overall nutritional intake. You could also have issues speaking clearly and may feel embarrassed when in social situations. Your jawbone could also begin to lose mass and density, breaking down to cause a prematurely aged appearance, such as sunken cheeks and a ptotic chin. But with dental implants, we can secure fixed dentures that preserve your jaw and your youthful facial features.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw through oral surgery. The body accepts these as natural root structure, and they bond with the jaw. This means the body resumes the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jaw around the new posts, which stimulates the growth of structure and prevents your smile from losing mass and density. Patients enjoy new roots that can last for decades to come, possibly a lifetime. Our team will carefully plan the placement so they can look and function like natural roots.

Securing Your New Smile

Once these posts are in place, we will wait for the area to heal to attach abutments and secure the denture. We could do this with traditional dental implant dentures or All-On-Four, which can be completed in one visit. The denture portion is custom-made as well, so it reflects your facial structures and restores your ability to eat your favorite foods and smile with ease. You care for them as you would natural teeth, and there is no need to remove them for soaking or cleaning, you have a new smile that functions like natural teeth and lasts for many years to come, far more than removable prosthetics.
