You’ve finally had it with your dentures.
The final straw may have been when your “teeth” came out while you were addressing the crowd at your daughter’s wedding reception.
Maybe it was when you spent 10 minutes looking over a menu only to realize that mashed potatoes and soup were the only things you could eat comfortably.
Or maybe you can no longer stand the thought of applying denture adhesive in hopes that you can get through a social event without you teeth coming loose.
Whatever your last straw is or was, Dr. Mark W. Wilhelm is ready, willing, and able to ease your burden. You could get a set of dental implants and leave that same day with a secure and stable set of replacement teeth.
It’s possible with the All-on-4® implant placement technique.
This is just one of our full-mouth reconstruction options at our Woodbury, MN dentist office. To schedule a consultation, call 651-319-9064 or contact us online today!
Imagine Feeling Confident About Your Smile
When was the last time you knew — without question — that your dentures would stay firmly in place no matter what you did?
Imagine spending an evening catching up with an old friend without once feeling nervous that your dentures would come loose.
Imagine going to a job interview knowing that your qualifications and not your loose dentures would be the focus of the conversation.
Imagine inviting your friends to try a new restaurant knowing that you could eat anything you wanted!
If you have slippery dentures, then it’s probably been a while since you felt that way.
We want you to feel like you have your natural teeth back. We want you to feel free to smile, speak, and eat whenever you feel like. We don’t want you to hesitate because you aren’t sure your dentures will go along with what you are trying to do.
Dental Implants Make the Difference
When modern root-form dental implants were developed, it was a game-changer in the history of restorative dentistry.
Implants replace the roots of your lost teeth. Like roots, implants are embedded in your jawbone. They support your dental restorations, much like your healthy roots once did for your natural teeth.
With implants to support your dentures, you will feel like you have a full set of real teeth once again. Implants add a level of stability that simply isn’t possible with traditional dentures — no matter how much dental adhesive you use.
And since your implants are embedded in your jaw, you also restore much of the power behind your bite. This is why you can bite into anything — apples, carrots, corn on the cob — with confidence that your “teeth” won’t move. This is why you can confidently order a steak knowing that you will be able to chew it and that your jaw won’t be sore halfway through your meal.
What Makes All-on-4 Different?
With standard dental implant placements, you may need to wait for months before your restorations are attached. This is so your jaw can heal and support the load of your fixed dentures.
With All-on-4, you can leave my office with a set of temporary teeth replacements on the same day you get your implants. Furthermore, you will be able to start eating with those temporary teeth as well.
Now, you may not want to tackle that apple on that first day. However, you will see a noticeable difference in your biting power if you had been living with traditional dentures.
As your jaw heals, your biting power will get stronger. When your jaw has bonded fully with your implants, you’ll return to get your permanent denture. By that point, you’ll understand just how stable and secure your new implant-supported dentures are.
We feel confident that you can feel like you have your teeth back again!
