When the smile has been affected dramatically by periodontal disease, it is often time for patients to seriously consider the benefits of dentures. Dentures are a great way to replace all teeth in the dental arch to restore function and appearance. Unfortunately, some patients with full dentures may find it difficult to keep them in place with denture adhesives and natural suction alone. This is when Dr. Neal Edwards may suggest using dental implants for stabilization.
Located in Riverside, California, Neal Edwards DDS may recommend all-on-X dental implants for patients looking at the different types of dental implant and tooth restoration options.
The all-on-X dental implant treatment is one of many different types of dentures and dental implant solutions for patients to consider at the clinic of Dr. Neal Edwards. Typically, four to six implants along the arch can be used to stabilize a conservative, full denture. This means that the denture attaches to the arch’s implant to keep it fully functional. All-on-4 and all-on-6 implant solutions are great for patients who are ready for a more durable smile restoration than traditional full dentures alone.
It is crucial that patients maintain a healthy smile after the placement of implant-retained dentures to avoid further damage to the bone or remaining teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the office are strongly encouraged. Patients can ask Dr. Neal Edwards about the specific care these restorations need to ensure longevity and functionality for many years to come!
