BiteLock™: All-on-4 Dental Implants in Ennis

Our team at DFW Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery knows that conventional dentures have many shortcomings. They are often uncomfortable and prone to being loose. They lose their fit over time, and they’re not particularly efficient or effective at chewing.

Patients who are facing the prospect of dentures now have a better, more stable alternative—BiteLock™. With this treatment approach, our surgeons place four or more dental implants in the most optimal position. The prosthesis is then secured and adapted to those implants. The patient leaves the office with a full complement of fixed teeth on the same day of placement. Once the implants have healed the permanent prosthesis is fabricated and delivered.

BiteLock is an All-On-4 implant-supported dentures system that appeals to patients who will lose most or all of their natural teeth. This technique allows for full mouth rehabilitation in one surgery. The patients will leave the office with a new provisional prosthesis that is fabricated in the office on the day of oral surgery, giving you teeth in one day. The physical link between the appliance and the jaw helps the prosthetic tolerate more significant chewing forces than an unsupported denture can.

Implant-supported dental prosthesis feels more natural and tend to have a more lifelike appearance, too, which is another benefit of BiteLock.

Let’s be honest – traditional dentures don’t work as well as we would like them to work. Sure, they can do it in a pinch, but a more permanent, functional solution is desirable. We provide the BiteLock system in Ennis, an All-On-4 dental implant solution designed for patients facing the prospect of losing most or all of their natural teeth.

With that in mind, it’s Bite Lock that should be at the top of your priority list. Unlike regular dentures, which can make it difficult to chew properly or to smile with confidence, Bite Lock will restore the original look and feel of your teeth. Four or more implants are used strategically as the base for your new teeth, and the prosthesis is then secured to those implants.

This system of All-on-4 dental implants offered by our Ennis oral surgeons is perhaps the best way to replace missing teeth without giving up anything in terms of your quality of life. Think of Bite Lock as a restoration process for your entire mouth in just a single surgery.

Have you been wearing dentures for years? That’s okay – you still may be a candidate for the Bite Lock system. If you have lost some bone in your mouth and thought that implants were no longer possible, we encourage you to come in for a visit to take a closer look. The implants can be strategically placed where they will be most effective, avoiding the parts of the mouth that have experienced the worst bone loss.

The speed of the Bite Lock solution – and the fact that you will only need to have one surgery – set it apart from the rest of the options available today. Bitelock ensures same-day teeth implants so Ennis residents don’t have to go home with temporary teeth, as we will fit you for a prosthesis right away to restore your smile quickly.

It’s hard to look up a process that could take more than a year to complete and feel optimistic about your oral health. That’s no longer a problem with Bite Lock – so learn more about it from our team and get started right away.
