Missing a tooth is more than just a cosmetic concern. Missing teeth can impact the quality of life and your health. Missing teeth should be replaced for your long term wellness. Chesapeake Center For Complete Dentistry in Chesapeake, VA offers comprehensive advanced restorative dentistry for patients missing one, or all of their teeth.
For patients missing all of their teeth, replacement options have improved with advancements in dental technology. Traditional options such as dentures are still available but many patients feel that they may affect eating habits, diet, and social interactions. Dr. John Cranham uses the All-On-Four technique to secure dentures for a natural looking and functional missing tooth replacement option. Implant secured dentures are a permanent dental restoration that can replace a full set of missing teeth.

The All-on-Four procedure. All-on-Four procedure requires careful planning. Dr. Cranham will strategically place 4 dental implants that will be used to secure a custom designed denture. The implants will secure the denture offering a comfortable, stable fit. With an implant secured denture, there is no need to use adhesives and adjust their daily diet because of slipping dentures. All-On-Four dentures help secure bone retention in the jaw minimizing jaw shrinkage often associated with missing teeth.
