Dentures have long been an affordable and reliable solution for patients with many missing teeth. They are a removable prosthetic that allows you to speak, eat and smile with confidence. However, many patients experience a lack of stability when wearing dentures. In these cases, Dr. Jean Pierre Rwigema may recommend anchoring your dentures with dental implants.
Implants can be used to hold dentures in place while they are in your mouth. Your dentures are still easily removable, but you will be able to eat and speak without concern for slippage. Implants also help combat the bone loss that naturally occurs when teeth are gone. In some cases, your current dentures can even be retrofitted for use with implants.
The All-on-4 treatment concept uses only four dental implants to secure a full arch of replacement teeth. This technique allows patients who might not otherwise be candidates for implant dentures to receive benefits. It also means that overall treatment and recovery time is reduced. In some cases, replacement teeth can even be placed on the same day as the implants.
The Trefoil concept takes the simplicity of All-on-4 even further. With the use of cutting-edge techniques and materials, Trefoil allows your complete denture to be supported with only three implants. Only a handful of practices around the country have received the training necessary to perform this procedure successfully, so we are very excited to be able to offer it here!
