As summer approaches, it’s nice looking forward to vacations and meals al fresco with family and friends. But what if worrying about your teeth — specifically your dentures — has, in the past, put a damper on fully enjoying these warm-weather moments? Are you wondering about teeth replacement options that will give you more freedom?
If so, Naperville Dental Specialists and prosthodontist, Dr. Anthony LaVacca, want to introduce you to worry-free All-on-4® dental implants: a fixed replacement for missing teeth that perform just like real teeth. How can All-on-4 give you the summer freedom you’re looking for? Here, 5 summer scenarios where you’ll be glad for All-on-4 dental implants.
Advantage #1: Eat Your Favorite Summer Foods Without Worry
Corn on the cob. Steak off the grill. Veggies straight from the garden. If you’ve been wearing removable dentures, you’re likely familiar with concerns about your dentures staying put when eating your favorite summer foods. And although many denture-wearers use denture adhesive to help dentures stick, there’s often still a little hesitation.
On the other hand, All-on-4 dental implants let you eat the summer foods you love with peace of mind — they’re a fixed, permanent solution that doesn’t ever require adhesive to stay firmly in place. All-on-4 dental implants act like real teeth, securely embedded into your gums as if they were natural.
Advantage #2: No Denture Cleaning Supplies to Pack
For some, packing for a vacation can be stressful. You have to consider what to pack for the weather, for comfort… and for your health, or course. But with All-on-4 dental implants, one thing you don’t have to pack is denture cleaning supplies. Since you take care of your All-on-4 teeth just like you would natural teeth, all you have to pack is your usual oral care kit for brushing and flossing.
Advantage #3: You Can’t Lose or Misplace All-on-4 Dental Implants
It’s definitely not ideal to lose any belongings — especially your teeth — when you’re far from home. Thankfully, All-on-4 dental implants are impossible to lose since they’re permanently affixed and act like real teeth. Now if only the same assurance could apply to hotel key cards, sunglasses, and your cell phone.
Advantage #4: No Adhesive To Apply Before Activities or Eating
Whether you’re at home or away this summer, the last thing you want is to worry about your dentures coming loose during your day. And while it’s true that denture adhesive can help dentures stay in place, your dentures can still come loose when eating hard, crunchy, or sticky foods. Or maybe when doing physical activities like swimming or snorkeling.
In this respect, you’ll appreciate this difference between dental implants vs dentures: All-on-4 dental implants don’t need adhesive.
Advantage #5: Picture Perfect Teeth for Confident Summer Photos
Once the leaves start to turn and the weather turns chilly, it’s nice to relive the bright, warm days of summer through the pictures you took. What can make you smile bigger and brighter in those photos? A full set of beautiful, natural looking teeth. All-on-4 treatment results in aesthetic teeth for a fully restored smile you can show off.
However, if a full set of teeth isn’t what you need, we at Naperville Dental Specialists offer many types of dental implants and cosmetic dentistry options to help you achieve the picture perfect smile you’re after. At Naperville Dental Specialists, Dr. LaVacca is not only a leading expert in All-on-4 treatment but our team also provides exceptional results with veneers, bridges, and conventional dental implants, too.
How Much Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
Now that you know a few of the perks of All-on-4 dental implants, you might be asking, “How much do All-on-4 dental implants cost?” Simply put, everyone’s teeth are different so costs do vary. And keep in mind that one of the benefits of All-on-4 implants vs treatment like dentures is that they’re meant to last a lifetime.
