My Dentures Are Causing Me Discomfort

Are you missing teeth? Are you struggling with unstable dentures? Restore your ability to eat and speak with ease with the revolutionary All-on-4 dental implant system. Replace missing or broken teeth in 1-3 days. Immediate function, superior aesthetic. Better quality of life.

Can you imagine yourself smiling with a missing tooth? Scary right? Missing teeth can be an embarrassing affair that can refrain you from smiling or speaking freely in public.

What if you could get your missing teeth back? Though it’s not possible to fix the natural teeth back again in their original position, you can opt for dental implants to fill in space with artificial teeth that look just like your natural teeth.

Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that have a screw-like shape. When placed in your jawbone, implants bond with your natural bone to form a sturdy base for new artificial teeth. You can replace one or more missing teeth with the help of dental implants and get back your beautiful smile and the confidence that goes with it.

All On 4 Dental Implants Procedure

A complete permanent dental implant procedure, All-on-4 is an ideal solution for:

  • Patients with advanced gum disease and loose teeth
  • Have natural teeth failing from infection and decay
  • Individuals missing multiple teeth
  • Patients with ill-fitting dentures

With no bone grafting necessary (in the majority of cases), the All-on-4 implant system will correct bite and jaw position, restore facial aesthetics, facial height and renew full functionality. It transforms smiles and lives!

After Care Of Dental Implants

Dental implants need to be cleaned and look after just like your natural teeth. If proper care is not taken, there are chances of dental implants developing an infection. The infection can further lead to bone loss and result in having to remove the implant.

Here are some tips that can help you maintain your dental implants.

Follow the after-care instructions given by the surgeon

The dental surgeon will ask the patient to maintain firm but gentle pressure on the implants using a gauze immediately after the surgery. The first gauze should be changed after 1 hour of the surgery, and after that, a new gauze should be placed in your mouth every 30 to 45 minutes.

To ensure the surgical site heals properly avoid disturbing it with your tongue or fingers. You can also rinse your mouth with salt water the day after of the surgery. You can apply ice to reduce swelling and discomfort.

Use a soft-bristle brush

It is wise to use a soft-bristle toothbrush on your dental implants to thoroughly clean them. You can use either your electric or manual toothbrush, whatever feels comfortable on your implants. In saying that, a soft-bristled brush is recommended, as it provides a more comfortable feel.

Floss regularly

If you thought that flossing regularly was not important, you were wrong! Flossing prevents the build-up of tartar, reduces chances of tooth decay and stops the development of gum disease.

You can take suggestions from your dental surgeon on the specific type of floss you can use for your implants.

Book a professional cleaning session with your dentist

It is a great idea to schedule an appointment with a professional to get your implants cleaned periodically. Professionals can easily clean the threads of the implant and nearby tissue along with your natural teeth. A thorough clean means there is no bacteria formation in your mouth.

Complications that may occur at the time of the procedure

Like any other surgery, dental implants carry the possibility of complications.

When the implants are on the lower teeth, there are chances of the nerve running through the jawbone being irritated at the time of drilling. This will lead to numbness in the lower part of your lip, chin or tongue. The numbness may last for a month and maybe permanent in some rare cases.
