Can All-On-4 Replace My Upper and Lower Teeth?

All-on-4 is a full arch dental prosthetic that only requires four posts to implant. Even patients who were previously told that they were not a candidate for dental implants due to bone loss may still be able to get All-on-4 because the posts are implanted diagonally rather than vertically so they don’t require as much bone as traditional implants.

Dentures and Dating—What if they find out you’re wearing them?
When patients are told that dentures would be the best solution for their permanent tooth loss, they have a lot of questions. Some of them they ask us, but other questions are left unanswered because the patient is embarrassed to ask, like “What will happen if my date finds out these aren't my real teeth?” All it takes is one web search to confirm that this is a concern for denture wearers of all ages. This question or ones like it are being asked and commented on every day, so that’s why we decided to tackle it here.  Visit Anthem Periodontics' website for more informations about alternatives to dating with dentures!

Dentures vs. Dental Implants

Do I Choose Dentures Or Dental Implants?

There are many reasons why so many people now choose dental implants over conventional dentures. The most commonly cited one being that they can enjoy a much higher quality of life. Dental implants are considered to be far more comfortable than dentures. They are also far more secure, as they are permanently attached to posts set in your jawbone. Instead of using bridging wires to hold them to adjacent teeth or in the case of full dentures, some form of bonding agent. In many cases dentures can make a person look and feel much older than they really are. No one wants to live with the aggravation of dentures, they all want to look and feel as young and healthy as possible.

Discomfort Be Gone!

Not only do conventional dentures cause discomfort, they have the potential to cause significant embarrassment in public. Imagine having your dentures come loose in mid-conversation or while you are eating a meal with guests. Even the best bonding agents fail from time to time, leaving you with teeth that slip and click when you are eating and talking. Dental implants are a permanent installation, they become one with your gums and jawbone. Because of this, you never have to worry about them coming loose or causing you any form of embarrassment.

Dental Implants Restore The Joy of Life

Dentures can be a constant hassle, causing wearers to lose their sense of self-confidence. When you have a set of permanent dental implants, you can eat what you want, when you want and never have to worry about it pulling your teeth out. You will regain your self-confidence as you can once again enjoy a very active lifestyle secure in the knowledge your teeth are not going to fall out. Your family, friends, and coworkers will be able to hear you clearly and understand what you are saying. These are only some of the many advantages of choosing full mouth restoration dental implants over conventional dentures.

Laser Gum Therapy

Anthem Laser Gum Therapy Offers Help for Gums and Your Overall Health
Periodontal disease has become rampant with busier lifestyles and the prolific abundance of sugary drinks and fast food snacks. Add to this a lack of proper dental care or regular dental checkups, and what you have is a nation of American adults suffering from gum disease. It is estimated that more than 50% of adult Americans have moderate to severe gum disease, but fewer than 3% of them seek periodontal treatment.

Why Gum Disease Treatment is So Important
In addition to infections in your gums and jaw, as well as loss of teeth, there are other important reasons for seeking treatment for inflamed gums. New research shows that there is a link between untreated gum disease and other disease processes in the body. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and osteoporosis have all been linked to the inflammation in the gums called periodontal disease.
Researchers have found the chemicals in chronic inflammation associated with periodontal disease travel throughout the body and add to other problems. By getting gum disease treatment patients can reduce their risk of these other diseases.

How Does Laser Gum Treatment Help?
Laser gum therapy in Anthem can help to eliminate gum disease without the need for invasive treatments that have traditionally been used. Ultra-thin laser filaments allow dentists to get down into the periodontal pockets and removed disease tissues and bacteria with the least amount of trauma to the gums and teeth.
With old conventional periodontal treatment, gums are cut open, roots are scraped, and stitches are used once diseased tissues have been removed. With laser periodontal disease treatment there is no need for cutting or stitches and bleeding is minimal. Because the laser gum treatment is capable of much smaller incisions it can remove the diseased tissues and leave the healthy tissues in place. This results in faster recovery, and a much better chance of reversing the course of the disease. As an added benefit the laser kills the bacteria in the pocket and denatures the tartar to make it easier to remove.
Treating inflamed gums is critical not only to dental health but also to your overall health. Because gum disease often has few if any serious symptoms it is easy to overlook or ignore. Regular visits to your dentist will not only help to prevent gum disease but it will also insure that you get the right inflamed gums treatment when and if it is needed.

A Periodontist Can Provide Next Level Dental Care

Dental tools are shown in a treatment room at Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants In Las Vegas
The tools of a periodontist may not differ from a dentist,
but the added education and experience determines the
improved level of treatment you will receive.
Periodontal disease can affect more than just the gums. It can also affect the teeth, jaw bone, and general health of the body. Those with periodontal disease have an increased risk of stroke or heart attack. It is important to see a periodontist, a dentist who specializes in periodontal disease, when seeking treatment options. These professionals receive more education and training to deal with the specialized needs of those suffering from periodontal disease.

A periodontist can treat periodontal disease through surgical or non-surgical methods. When teeth need to be removed due to periodontal damage, implants may be used to replace one or more teeth. A full mouth restoration may be necessary in some cases.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Periodontal cosmetic surgery or sometimes referred to as periodontal plastic surgery may be necessary to correct problems that occur from severe cases of periodontal disease, birth defects, or for cosmetic reasons. Tooth sockets, gums, and areas of the tongue may be altered or repaired, depending on the needs of the patient.

Oral Cancer

A periodontist also specializes in oral cancer screenings to detect any signs or symptoms of cancer anywhere in the mouth. The periodontist will examine the mouth by sight and by touching areas in the mouth to feel for firmness and for unusual lumps or skin abnormalities. If any unusual sores are discovered, a biopsy can be taken to determine if it is cancerous or not.
