Without a doubt, permanent tooth replacement using implants has revolutionized restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Implants are comfortable, secure, and reliable, while stabilizing and stimulating the bones around them. As a state-of-the-art implant system, All-On-4 Dental Implants provide a minimally invasive solution, enabling a small number or implants to support a maximum number of teeth. This means that as few as 4 implants can be used to support a fixed full arch of the upper or lower jaw. As a remarkable concept for cosmetic and restorative dentistry, the proven formula of success with All-On-4 can be accomplished in one single day!
Gordon Dental of Leawood makes every effort to provide dental care of the highest quality to patients in Johnson County. We realize that All-On-4 Dental Implants provide patients with a new reality through planning and predictable outcomes. People who previously could not benefit from implants, whether due to lack of bone or cost, are now able to receive affordable, topnotch dental treatment using All-On-4. If you would like to know more about dental implants using the All-On-4 system, contact Gordon Dental of Leawood today.
Advantages of Implant Dentures
EAT THE FOODS YOU LOVE
Enjoy your favorite foods again without your dentures sticking or slipping. Implant-retained overdentures will stay in place, even when eating chewy or sticky foods that cause problems with conventional dentures that use adhesives.
REGAIN SELF CONFIDENCE
With implant-retained overdentures, you can feel confident to laugh, smile and join in the conversation, without worrying about your dentures slipping since they are anchored in place. Plus, your implant-secured dentures help you retain the contours of your facial muscles for a more youthful appearance.
NO MORE ADHESIVES
Throw away those tubes of denture adhesive that are messy, affect the taste of your food and still don't hold your dentures securely in place. With implant-retained overdentures, you will not need any adhesive to keep your dentures securely in place. Enjoy a talking, eating and laughing again without needing expensive and annoying adhesive to keep your smile from slipping.
IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE
You deserve a beautiful smile that you can feel confident to show the world. With implant-retained overdentures, you can have that beautiful smile along with all the benefits of natural teeth, including enjoyment of your favorites food, improved speech and an overall improvement of your quality of life.
PREVENT BONE LOSS
Without your teeth, you can begin to lose bone in your jaw, causing a deterioration or shrinkage of your jaw structure. This process can even be accelerated with the use of conventional dentures with pressure put on the gums and jaw. With the addition of titanium implants into your jaw bone to secure your overdentures, the living tissue in the jaw adheres to the post, preventing further bone loss while retaining your jaw and facial shape.
The Implant Denture Process
The first step in the implant denture process is a free consultation to learn more about the procedure. Your doctor will explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions you have and create a customized treatment plan based on your needs. You receive all the information you need to make a decision, including exact pricing for your new implants and dentures.
Once you make the decision to proceed with the dental implant procedure, we will schedule your pre-implant appointment. During this visit, we will get everything we need to complete your implant procedure, including models, x-rays, measurements, before-photos and scans. We will collect any data needed so we are ready to go once your implant procedure day arrives.
IMPLANT PLACEMENT PROCEDURE
In one day, we put your implants in place and you will be on your way to your permanent new smile. Once your appointment is over, you will go home with implants and temporary teeth that look great and function until your permanent overdentures can be put in place.
POST IMPLANT APPOINTMENTS
After your dental implant procedure, your jaw bone will need time to heal and adhere to your new implants. For at least several weeks, most patients need to restrict their diet to soft foods that will not interrupt the healing process. As part of your procedure, we will ask you to come in to our office for several post-operative visits to monitor your healing process. These checkups are all included in the fee for your implants and will not cost you anything extra.
RECEIVE YOUR PERMANENT TEETH.
Today is the day you have been waiting for. Once your implants have completely healed and are stable, we can install your new overdentures and you will leave our office with your beautiful, permanent smile.
