Restore Your Confidence
Many people who have conventional dentures don’t like to wear them because they don’t stay in place. One Shot Smile™ offers a way to keep dentures secure and allows you to go about your daily life with confidence.
Conventional dentures are designed to give you the appearance of natural teeth, but not actually replace your natural teeth. You may have noticed that your denture that once fit well now slips constantly and requires costly visits to the dentist for adjustment. That’s because every day that you were a denture the bone in your jaw shrinks a little more. Eventually, the denture won’t fit at all and you will have to replace it.
One Shot Smile™ is a very different solution. You will still have beautiful natural-looking teeth, but now they will also function like natural teeth. Dr. LaViola offers the One Shot Smile™ solution that secures your denture to surgically placed dental implants so that you can eat, speak and live confidently without the fear of slipping dentures.
Fix Common Denture Problems
- Difficulty chewing certain foods
- Slurred speech and embarrassing clicks, whistling or smacking
- Slipping or moving of the denture
- Gum and mouth irritation
- Mouth infections
- Pain caused by poor-fitting dentures
Tired Of Your Loose Denture?
Millions of people around the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of a denture. Many struggle with loose or poor-fitting dentures. If you have this problem, you already know the embarrassment of slipping dentures, not being able to eat the foods you love, and the problems with messy denture adhesives.
The One Shot Smile™ Solution
After you have met with Dr. LaViola and created a personalized treatment plan, you will schedule the One Shot Smile™ procedure with the Dental Masters of Alexandria team. During the procedure, 4 to 6 implants are surgically placed into your jaw with abutment posts. Your denture is then secured to the abutment posts with special prosthetic screws. The One Shot Smile™ procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anesthesia. Dr. LaViola will either use your existing denture or have a denture created prior to the procedure so that you walk out that day with teeth. Discomfort from One Shot Smile™ is usually minor and temporary. Dr. LaViola may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet will be required during the initial healing phase.
After The Procedure
After the procedure, the use of a medicated mouth wash is often recommended for two weeks. You will not brush or use a water pick during that time. After two weeks, you can start using a water pick on a slow speed. Follow Dr. LaViola’s instructions and maintain your dental hygiene to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.
