8 Reasons to Consider All on Four Dental Implants in Houston Instead of Dentures, PART 2
In our previous article post, we introduced the focus of this four-part series and made a start on discussing the reasons edentulous (toothless) and near-edentulous patients should consider All on Four dental implants in Houston as their tooth replacement solution. This is instead of removable dentures, which are for many reasons a far inferior technology. The first reason we looked at was that All on 4 dental implants in Houston provide patients with a complete set of fixed and non-removable teeth that, unlike dentures, cannot move around or fall out. In this article, the second installment of the series, we shall take a look at three more reasons why patients suffering from rampant tooth loss should consider this sophisticated implant protocol as the future of their oral health, bite functionality and smile aesthetics.
Reasons You Should Consider All on Four Dental Implants in Houston as Your Tooth Replacement Solution
Reason # 2: All on Four Dental Implants in Houston Feel Like Natural Teeth
With all the support needed to hold a customized prosthetic dental bridge in place, All on Four dental implants in Houston do not exert any pressure on the soft tissues in the mouth, nor do they rub against the gums. Dentures, which rest directly upon the gums covering the jaw bone ridge, have a rather nasty reputation for causing pain and inflammation of this soft tissue, and can lead to the development of painful sores that aren’t given a chance to heal. This makes eating and speaking extremely difficult at times, especially when a patient is in dire need of having their dentures refitted due to bone loss in the jaw (to be discussed later…) There are anesthetic gels on the market, which can alleviate this pain. But the ideal option would be to have replacement teeth that are, just like your natural teeth, anchored by the jaw bone via All on Four dental implants in Houston. This allows for normal functioning of the teeth, which subsequently feel natural and not like some foreign piece of plastic floating about in your mouth!
Reason # 3: All on Four Dental Implants in Houston Don’t go Hand-in-Hand with Everyday Challenges
Because removable dentures rely upon their bulkiness to remain stable in the mouth, they tend to come with all kinds of nasty challenges. Dentures impede taste ability and the hard plastic that covers the soft palate can trigger the gag reflex. This is over and above the need to remove them after meals and at nighttime for cleaning. Yet even those that are meticulous about keeping their dentures free of food will notice that they tend to harbor bacteria, causing chronic bad breath. All on Four dental implants in Houston provide solid ‘anchorage’ for a prosthetic dental bridge, which, as a result, doesn’t need to be bulky at all. It is much slimmer construction therefore it doesn’t interfere at all with taste ability, nor does it trigger the gag reflex. Furthermore, being non-removable, the bridge supported by All on Four dental implants in Houston is cared for just like natural teeth: with regular brushing and flossing.
Reason # 4: All on Four Dental Implants in Houston Enable You to Eat All the Foods You Love
One of the problems denture-wearers most frequently complain of is the inability to really enjoy their meals and to eat all the foods they used to love. Unfortunately, because dentures rest upon the jaw bone ridge, they transmit all the forces associated with eating and chewing directly to the underlying soft tissues. This can cause substantial pain and inflammation, thus restricting denture-wearers’ diets to softer, more manageable foods. All on Four dental implants in Houston, on the other hand, transmit these forces directly to the jaw bone, which is the case with your natural teeth. With the much stronger bite force facilitated by All on 4 dental implants in Houston, patients are able to eat all the foods they love without discrimination.
