The Right Dentures ‘Four’ Your New SmileOctober 1st, 2016
It can happen faster than you expect. One day you are eating corn on the cob and fried chicken, and before you know it, you don’t have enough teeth to chew anything.
Fortunately, you can change this situation with implant-supported dentures if you live in or near Geismar, LA. Our dentist offers this service because he knows that losing your teeth affects more than just what foods you can eat.
Losing your teeth can affect you emotionally as well. We’ve seen that this can and does leave some people feeling embarrassed or ashamed. We don’t want anyone who visits Ascension Premier Dental to feel that way.
Dr. Calvin Bessonet can give you back your smile (and more) with the All-on-4® procedure. To learn more about this restorative treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bessonet as soon as you are able.
The Right Solution For Missing Teeth
More than 30 million individuals in the United States are missing at least one row of teeth. Many of them use traditional dentures to replace those lost teeth. But we have to ask, do dentures really fill the role of teeth replacements?
Sure, modern dentures can be crafted with materials that remarkably similar to natural teeth. This can give you a natural-looking smile as long as your dentures stay in place.
And that’s the rub with dentures, isn’t it. They don’t always stay in place.
Dentures rest over your gums. There is nothing securing thing in position. You can use some adhesive for a temporary improvement, but even that is limited in how much it will help.
If your dentures can fall out while you are speaking (and they can), then it won’t surprise you that eating can cause your dentures to get pulled or pushed out of place.
That doesn’t have to be the case. If you get dental implants at Ascension Premier Dental, you will have added security for your dentures — and you won’t have to fuss with adhesives
Dr. Bessonet will carefully place implants in your jaw to provide the maximum stability, security, and strength. You will be able to speak with confidence that your dentures will stay in place, and you will be able to eat comfortably knowing that you can bite into and chew anything you would like to eat.
The Right Place For Your Teeth Replacement Procedure
What makes Ascension Premier Dental the right place to go for your implant-supported dentures? Dr. Bessonet and the All-on-4 procedure. (We’ll talk more about All-on-4 in a moment.)
Dr. Bessonet is a graduate of LSU and LSU School of Dentistry. Since completely his formal dental education, he has remained committed to learning more about advancements in dental care.
His love of learning has led him to complete more than 500 hours of continuing education, and that added knowledge and training benefits every patient who visits our office.
Dr. Bessonet has complete an intense 400-hour implant and bone regeneration program under the direction of Dr. Hilt Tatum. Dr. Tatum is considered a pioneer in implant dentistry and invented many advanced surgical techniques.
Dr. Bessonet also is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, which tells you that his skill in implant placement is respected by his peers.
Just as important, he is a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, which means you can rest assured that your implant placement procedure will be handled comfortably and professionally.
In fact, we are a rare dentist office in the area that is licensed to provide IV sedation for our patients. This is an ideal sedation option for patients undergoing procedures like implant placement.
The Right Kind Of Implant Placement
What makes All-on-4 so different from other implant-placements?
Well, some of the things are the same. You will have implants placed in your jaw. You can count on having dentures that feel stable and comfortable.
With All-on-4, however, we carefully place the placement of four implants. This can save you money (since fewer implants are needed), but it also allows you enjoy the benefit of implant-supported dentures more quickly.
With All-on-4, we can place a set of temporary dentures on your implants that same time. With other implants procedures, you have to wait months for your jaw to fully heal before dentures can be attached.
Now, your mouth will still need time to heal with All-on-4 before you enjoy the full benefits. In the meantime, however, you won’t have to walk around with an empty row of teeth.
