Hello Monroe! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Bayou Dental Group. The holidays are here and everyone has started to get into a little bit of the holiday spirit. The holidays are alway a particular fun time of year at the office, because our patients also seem ready and eager to smile! But if you’re missing a significant portion of your teeth, you may never feel like you’re ready to smile.
Recently, a patient came into our office with a oral health dilemma. He had worn dentures for years, but was sick of them falling out at inopportune times. He told us that his grandchild were getting older, and he wanted them to be proud of him. But he felt like his missing teeth made him look a bit silly and hard to take serious. He was was considering a new set of dentures, but wanted to know if there was a better solution.
At the Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, we were thrilled to inform him that here is in fact a better solution for missing teeth. We’re proud to offer both All on 4 dental implants and All on 6 dental implants. These revolutionary dental implant procedures can replace your entire set of teeth with permanent, non-removable replacement teeth. After undergoing one of these dental implant procedures, you’ll be able to smile again with an incredibly lifelike and functional set of teeth.
All on 4 dental implants and All on 6 dental implants use a series of dental implants (either 4 or 6) to support a set of permanent dentures. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is embedded into your jawbone is a painless and comfortable oral surgery. Once a dental implant has been placed, it will begin to integrate with your jawbone. Dental implants are nearly as strong as a natural tooth root, making them an ideal for supporting permanent dentures.
Your permanent dentures will then function just like natural teeth. You’ll never have to worry about your dentures falling out or slipping when you’re eating or speaking. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods once again. Even foods that were impossible to eat with dentures – like corn on the cob – will be back on your menu once again.
If currently have a few remaining teeth, we can painless extract them to make room for your full mouth reconstruction. Or we can replace your outdated and unsightly dentures with these excellent options for non-removable replacement teeth. Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, is one of very few dentist offices in the country to offer All on 4 dental implants and All on 6 dental implants. We love seeing patients smile with a new found confidence after undergoing these dental implant procedures.
All on 4 dental implants and All on 6 dental implants provide more stability and durability than traditional dentures. But they also have a range of other benefits that can ensure that your treatment is a breeze. Patients often come into our office and tell us that these dental implant procedures truly changed their lives.
In the past, full mouth reconstructions were both prohibitory expensive and time-consuming. A dental implant had to be placed for each individual tooth which was being replaced. All of 4 dental implants and All on 6 dental implant procedures are faster and less expensive because far fewer dental implants have to be placed.
Undergoing a traditional full mouth reconstruction used to take months.
