You’re at a party, standing in a circle of old friends and new acquaintances. You make a joke, and everyone laughs. You laugh with them, but you have to cover your mouth as you do so because this is always the moment your dentures dislodge.
Sound familiar? If you wear dentures, you’re probably well acquainted with the various ways in which they can hamper your freedom of expression and your quality of life.
If you received your dentures in the past decade or two, you may have considered and ultimately dismissed dental implants as an option because of the time and cost associated with them. In the past, restoring a full set of teeth with dental implants sometimes meant upwards of 8 implants per arch. It was a long process that required multiple visits. Under those circumstances, we understand how, even with all their drawbacks, dentures appeared to be a practical alternative.
But what if you could schedule a visit with our world-class dental team and come out the same day with a full set of natural-looking, fully-functioning teeth that won’t slip?
Believe it or not, that’s exactly what we can provide for you.
At Town Center Dentistry, we make it a point to stay informed on innovative technologies, and the All-on-Four dental implant concept is the best there is. Our resident implant specialist, Dr. Thomas Gonzales, has replaced the dentures of hundreds of San Diegans and Southern Californians with a fixed full arch using just four of the highest quality Nobel Biocare implants per arch.
The All-on-Four dental implant surgery takes approximately 2.5 hours per arch. Our expert specialists will place the implants and the arches of your new teeth while you are comfortable and sedated. By combining the precision of the All-on-Four technology with our highly experienced team, we can restore your beautiful smile in just one day.
The procedure will not only give you a fully functioning set of teeth that allows you to smile freely, but it will also restore your facial and muscle tone and prevent future bone deterioration in your jaw.
After the All-on-Four implant surgery
When you leave our offices on the day of your procedure, the actual teeth attached to your implants will be temporary but still fully functional. The reason for this is that your implants need time to heal and to fuse to your jawbone. Once that bond has happened, you will return to Town Center Dentistry and our team will replace your temporary teeth with your new permanent ones. With good oral hygiene practices, these teeth will last the rest of your life.
Unlike with dentures, you’ll have no need for adhesives or worry about slippage. You’ll be able to eat as you please and smile as often as you like, without covering your mouth.
If you are ready to self-express freely and to laugh with your mouth wide open, please contact us at Town Center Dentistry. We’ll help you get back that quality of life you deserve.
