…unable to chew the foods you love?

…looking for a dentist in Oregon City who can make it happen?
Then you came to the right place! Fortunately, through the modern marvels of restorative dentistry, we will be able to give you the next best thing to real teeth, All on 4 and All on 6 dental implants, which can allow you to take back the life you enjoyed before losing teeth.
Teeth Aren’t All That You’ll Be Missing
Teeth are a big player in our daily lives. So, if you are missing a full arch of teeth, you won’t be on top of your game, so to speak.
First of all, when you don’t have all your teeth, it can change the appearance of your face, and not for the better. As you lose teeth, you lose bone density too. This can give your face a sunken-in look and make you seem old beyond your years. No one wants that!
The whole experience of losing teeth will be upsetting. Beyond the emotional aspect of missing several teeth, you will have physical consequences to deal with too. Think about it: if you don’t have all of your teeth, you can’t bite into things the way you used to, and you can’t chew your food the way you need to. That won’t be a very sustainable model because you won’t be able to eat the things you love or even the things that are really good for your health, like fiber-rich fruits.
At the end of the day, this could even mean a limited diet of soft foods and liquids for you. That doesn’t sound so good, does it?
That being the case, why would anyone want to ignore the situation?
In some instances, embarrassment or dental anxiety prevents patients from seeking the care that they deserve.
Don’t let that be you! If you are feeling apprehensive, just remember that we promise to go easy on you. We would rather see you while you have some teeth to save then see you when it is too late to help in a substantial way.
All On 4 And All On 6 Will Improve Your Outlook
So, by now, you are probably wondering how it all works with dental implants and so forth. As it happens, dental implants replace the roots of your teeth. Much like your original roots, your dental implants stimulate the jawbone, and this spurs new growth. This growth, in turn, keeps your jawbone healthy and prevents major bone loss. That will help you greatly, whether you realize it or not!
In order to get the full benefit of a dental implant, you need to attach something to replace the crowns of your teeth as well. If you were missing one tooth, we would add a dental crown. If you lost three or four teeth, we would recommend a dental bridge. For a full arch, that is a little different case.
Around here, we use a special type of dental implant system to replace full arches of missing teeth: All on 4 and All on 6 dental implants. These two methods are particularly good at supporting full arches of permanent teeth, but they are different than conventional dentures.
For these procedures, we place a series of dental implants around the arches, but add two implants placed diagonally in the back of the mouth to offer optimal support. The big advantage of All on 4 or All on 6 dental implants, in addition to the support, is that the permanent teeth are designed to leave your palate open. By leaving the palate open, you can have your teeth and your taste back, which is a pretty big deal.
By the time we are through with you, you will be able to rest assured knowing that your dental implants are held securely in place by your jawbone, and that they give you significantly more stability than you can expect with other kinds of dentures. With All on 4 or All on 6, you can go back to eating all the foods you love without worrying about your dentures coming loose when you bite or chew. No more embarrassing moments!
