Do Want More From Dentures? Ask About All-on-4

August 1, 2016

You never really thought this would happen to you, and yet you can see the evidence by looking in the mirror.

You’ve lost an entire row of teeth. Looking back it’s easy to say what you should have done differently.

But there’s no time for that. Now is the time to do something to make your smile — to make your life — better going forward.

Now is the time to call Ira J. Moin, D.D.S., to ask about All-on-4® dental implant-supported dentures.

You owe it to yourself to find out if this could improve your day-to-day experience. Make an appointment at our dentist office in Encino, CA, today.

What Do You Want Back?

We could go through the circumstances that lead to your lost teeth, but that isn’t going to bring them back.

Instead, let’s consider how you life may be different if you could find a strong, durable replacement for your missing teeth.

Would you like to feel comfortable introducing yourself to new people?

Would you like to feel comfortable smiling in family photos, whether it’s a group picture at a family reunion or a “selfie” with one of your grandkids?

Would you like to be able to order whatever you want when you dine out with your friends? (Would you like to feel comfortable dining out with your friends again?)

Do you want to be able to speak to someone without worrying that they are more distracted by your missing teeth than interested in what you are saying?

Would you like to feel proud of your smile once again?

It’s possible to get all these things with dental implants to support your dentures.

The Implant Difference

Back when you had all your teeth, your bite could generate between 200 and 250 pounds of pressure. (We are assuming your bite was within the average range.)

With that kind of force, you can easily bite into an apple or from fresh cooked corn on the cob. That force also makes it easy to chew a bite of steak, fried chicken, or hard vegetables like carrots.

As you may already be aware, all those things become more difficult when you are missing one row or both rows of teeth.

Let’s consider your teeth replacement options.

Option 1 is dentures. Traditional dentures rest over your gums, and modern materials make them look more natural than they previously did.

Eating is better than it would be if you didn’t have any teeth, but it’s still not the same as having all your teeth.

Studies have should that people with dentures can generate up to 50 pounds of force with their bites. That’s 20 to 25 percent of their original bite force at best.

Can you eat steak? Yes, but you will want to cut it into smaller pieces, and you may have to chew it longer now.

Can you bite into an apple? Sure … but there is a chance your dentures will get pulled loose in the attempt.

If we add dental implants to this situation, it’s like giving your dentures a strength and stability boost. Implants replace the roots of your missing teeth, which is why they can hold your dentures securely in place.

That security will allow you to get the maximum benefit from your dentures. With time, you may regain close to 100 percent of your original biting force. In that situation, you won’t have any worries if you decide to fill your plate with corn on the cob and fried chicken at the next family gathering.

The Power of Four

You could get a lot of dental implants, or you could consider the All-on-4 dental implant procedure.

With this pioneering technique, we can place four dental implants in strategic locations in your jaw. This gives you the maximum benefit at a lower cost and a shorter recovery time than other implant placements.

With All-on-4, you are still getting the benefits of implant-supported dentures. Your smile will look great, and with time, you will be able to bite and chew nearly as well as you could with real teeth.

Dr. Moin is a wonderful dentist. He is professional and does excellent work. Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful – so much so that my 6yr old asked if we could go back. We went to him on a family recommendation and I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

-Suzie B, Acton, CA

My family has been going to Dr. Moin since 1996 and since then, he has been and still continues to be a great dentist. He does an excellent job, whether it’d be extracting a wisdom tooth or simply filling a cavity. You should definitely have Dr. Moin as a dentist; you’re in good hands.

Finally, I found a dentist that is compassionate about what he does. His entire staff is courteous, professional, and caring. I’ve been to many dentist through recommendation of friends and although it wasn’t a bad experience, I haven’t experienced service to this degree. I am a professional in the health care field, and because I work nights and long hours, my bad habits include coffee and drinking soda to stay awake. As a results, I destroyed the enamel on my teeth and soon was embarrassed to smile. I came to Dr. Moin through a referral and was immediately greeted by a friendly, warm staff. I sat in the room with Dr. Moin and explained my concerns and needs. He took the time to listen then explain the procedure and informed me of his 20 plus years experience in cosmetic dentistry. I had an inner warmth and security that somehow validated was he was saying, so proceeded with getting Veneers. Let me tell you, choosing Dr. Moin was the best decision I made. The quality is superb and the price could not be beaten. Colleagues who also have Veneers were shocked about the difference in what they paid compared to what I did and some can’t even tell that I have Veneers. I must say, I highly recommend him to everyone!!! Thank you Dr. Moin and Staff.
