At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we welcome patients of all ages. We’re pleased to see that older Americans are having fewer cavities than they used to, but concerned that about twenty-five percent of those above sixty-five have lost all their teeth, and need dentures.
Patients who have lost all of their teeth are usually looking for dentures: removable, custom-made replacement teeth. Traditional dentures never feel like natural teeth, of course, and they take some getting used to. But they help to improve your appearance and smile, and to eat and even speak more comfortably.
An increasingly popular option for denture-wearers are All-on-4 dental implants. In this procedure, four titanium posts are surgically implanted into the patient’s jaw, and used to support a set of artificial teeth.
Anyone who has lost all of their teeth and wants to have a permanent, natural-looking set of dentures will benefit from All-on-4 implants. One of the things that patients love most about them is that they can eat whatever they want to, without worry of slippage.
Koch Park Dental in Florissant provides both traditional dentures, and All-on-4 dental implants. Contact our office to find out more. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
