If you have missing or failing teeth due to decay or injury, dental implants are a great way to restore your smile and quality of life. Your teeth rely on the gums and jawbone to support them and that’s why replacing missing teeth is important to preventing further tooth loss, gum recession and bone atrophy. Fortunately, modern dentistry has developed several options for replacing missing or failing teeth. The All-On-4® technique, provides a solution for tooth loss by placing four dental implants in strategic locations in the upper or lower jawbone to permanently stabilize the prosthetic teeth. The implants will fuse to the jawbone, providing a durable long lasting smile.

Everyone is self-conscious about something. The impact it has on one’s life can be damaging. Unfortunately, for many people who wear dentures, the experience is often one of extreme self-consciousness.

In 2015, a US Oral Care Survey (Biting Into Denture Care) revealed the negative impact dentures (also called snap on teeth) have on self confidence for people who wear them. One surprising result of the survey was that 53% of respondents said they received their first set of dentures at the age 44 or even younger.
