A Full Smile With Only Three Dental Implants

santa rosa trefoilWhen you lose most or all of your teeth, you need more than traditional removing dentures. You need an implant-secured one to preserve your smile and prevent an aged appearance. But did you know we could support one with only three posts? In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgeons talk about the benefits of TreFoil™.

When You Need a Full Dental Prosthetic

We recommend a set of dentures when you have lost most or all of your teeth. When we suffer from advanced tooth loss, the body stops sending doses of calcium and phosphorus to the areas without tooth roots, causing the bone structure to break down and weaken. You develop an aged appearance! But with dental implants, we can add posts that stimulate the jawbone to prevent this break down and to support a complete set of dentures, which are fixed in place and never slip. You also don’t need to remove them for maintenance either! When you have sustained major tooth loss, consider seeing our team for an implant-secured denture.

Preparing Your Smile

We will begin by gently removing the last few teeth. After we extract them, we can take detailed digital images of your smile to plan the placement of the posts, choosing the best angles and positions to support your new prosthetic. Our team will employ a local anesthesia and sedation to ensure the procedure is a comfortable one, so you feel relaxed and calm, ensuring a positive experience in the office.

The TreFoil™ System

With TreFoil™, our team will insert three unique titanium implant posts in each arch of the jaw. We then connect these posts with a powerful and load-bearing bar. Once these are in place, our team will attach the denture in the same visit. The denture portion will be custom-made to ensure a lifelike appearance, and the stability to handle daily bite forces and pressures. In only one visit, you can obtain a full smile, with replacements that can last for decades to come, possibly a lifetime!

If you have any questions about tackling your advanced tooth loss with the TreFoil™ system, then please reach out to our team today. We look forward to helping you smile with confidence again, with results that can potentially last a lifetime and offer a lifelike appearance in the process.
