Dentures are more natural looking and feeling than ever before. Philadelphia dentist Dr. Pamela Doray offers a variety of options for replacing missing teeth with dentures including partial dentures, cosmetic dentures and dental implant supported dentures.
There are thirty-five million American adults who do not have all of their teeth. Ninety percent of those individuals wear dentures. Not all dentures are the same. Poor fitting dentures can cause a host of issues including:
- Deterioration of the jaw bone
- Impaired speech
- Premature aging in the face
- Difficulty eating
- Poor nutrition (due to difficulty eating)
- Negative self esteem
Dr. Doray is one of the most sought after and highly trained dentists in Philadelphia. She offers dental implant solutions that stabilize dentures and provide better long term health benefits for edentulous patients. In our Philadelphia dental office, the All-On-4® procedure is a popular treatment to replace all of a person’s missing teeth (on one arch).
What is All-On-4®?
All-On-4®, also known as “Teeth in a Day”, is the name for a dental implant procedure that allows for the immediate restoration of missing teeth. As few as four dental implants will be placed to support a hybrid bridge or overdenture. Dr. Doray and her surgical team will secure the restorations to the implants on the same visit as the surgery so you never have to go without your smile.
Is All-On-4 New®?
The All-On-4® treatment was recently introduced in the United States, however, it has been successfully utilized throughout Europe for more than a decade.
How Does It Work?
Comprehensive treatment planning is key to the success of the All-On-4® procedure. The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Doray. She will evaluate your condition and help you decide if dental implants are right for you. Dr. Doray will create a treatment plan and coordinate the procedure with a dental implant surgeon.
