What are implant dentures?
You might have heard terms like implant-retained dentures or implant-supported dentures. We offer implant dentures in our Albuquerque dental office to improve the fit and function of dentures for our patients. Having dentures that fit well and feel comfortable can improve patients’ nutritional choices and self-esteem, opening the door to having a happy social life without worry of embarrassing denture mishaps like falling or shifting.
At Essenmacher Family Dental, we offer All-on-4 dentures for our Albuquerque dental patients. All-on-4 requires only four dental implants to secure an entire arch of denture teeth. All-on-4 has a number of advantages over traditional dentures retained by dental implants.
A Smaller Profile
Rather than covering the entire palate, All-on-4 allows us to provide stability through anchor implants, reducing the size and shape of the denture. Patients can taste their food better and find them easier to get used to.
Your dentist will choose the ideal location for the dental implants, often being able to avoid additional bone grafting procedures.
A Permanent Solution
Your new All-on-4 dentures are a long-term solution to missing teeth. Because they are not as affected by changes in bone structure, you can enjoy more extended results than the traditional five to seven years of complete dentures.
