Living with tooth pain isn’t just uncomfortable, it can cause serious health issues if left unchecked. Whether the pain is caused by decay, a fracture, a damaged filling, infected gums, or some other disease, the symptoms are uncomfortable at best and dangerous at worst.
WebMD recommends going to see your dentist if you have a toothache that lasts longer than one or two days, if your pain is severe, or if you have a fever, earache, or pain when you open your mouth wide.
Depending on the cause of your pain, your dentist might recommend a tooth extraction if the symptoms of decay are severe enough. While there are a few popular options available, Dream Dental’s All-on-4® dental implants should be at the top of your list.
Where traditional dentures have long been the go-to option for pain-causing tooth replacement, the All-on-4® method has the advantage over traditional dentures in every way. Here are just a few of the reasons that Dream Dental’s All-on-4® dental implants are the best choice for tooth replacement.
Replaces all teeth
The name All-on-4® comes from the ability to replace all of your teeth, top, and bottom, with as few as four implants. That means the procedure can be done in as little as one day. With a practice that is dedicated to implants only, Dream Dental specializes in replacing all of your teeth.
Feels and functions like natural teeth
Another advantage that comes with the All-on-4® method over traditional dentures is how your new teeth will feel and function after the procedure. Patients say these implants feel like your natural teeth — not something taking up space in your mouth. This permanent solution has a biting force close to that of your normal teeth — up to 250 pounds.
Teeth are permanently fixed into place
Unlike traditional dentures, these devices are built on a foundation of dental implants that fuse to your natural bone, allowing the dental implants to literally become part of your body. This method allows for a more stable, durable, comfortable, and beautiful option for patients who want to permanently get rid of tooth pain.
Eat the foods that you desire
Dentures don't allow for a wide range of food options. By their nature, they can't give you the bite force that your natural teeth — or implants — can give. With All-on-4® dental implants, you have the ability to eat your favorite chewy foods such as steak, apples, and corn on the cob without a problem.
Preserves your jawbone and helps maintain a more youthful facial structure
One problem that traditional denture wearers face is the inevitable decay of the jawbones. Once a bone begins to decay, so does the shape and structure of your face.
With All-on-4® dental implants, the titanium screws used to secure your implants fuse to the bone and become a part of it, keeping your bones healthy and thriving for life. You'll have a much more youthful facial structure when compared to the lifetime effects that traditional dentures have.
A long-term solution that is the best value
Dream Dental’s All-on-4® dental implants are a long-term, rest-of-your-life solution to tooth pain and decay, and it’s a great value. Traditional dentures require constant, costly adjustments to ensure fit and comfort, not to mention other expenses for adhesives and soaking solutions. Over the years, these costs add up.
However, with the All-on-4® implants, there is no need for relines and adjustments. Because the prosthetic is fused to the bone, there are hardly any costly maintenance expenses required.
Some patients requiring tooth extraction might be concerned with how they will look after the procedure. With traditional dentures, this would be a valid concern. Your smile, face, and mouth might all look slightly different and unnatural. Not to mention, your speech might be affected.
With All-on-4® dental implants you can have complete confidence in smiling, laughing, eating, speaking, and enjoying all your normal social situations without fear of looking unnatural.
