Dr. Konstantine Trichas uses implant supported dentures, All-on-4, and All-on-6 anchored dentures to reduce slippage, minimize gum irritation, and eliminate the need for adhesives.
New York, NY – Dr. Konstantine Trichas, a cosmetic dentist in New York City, is dedicated to keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in dental technology and providing his patients with the advantages these new technologies can offer. Missing teeth are a problem that dentists have been working to fix for generations. While dentures can improve the appearance and the function of a patient’s mouth, “traditional dentures often entail messy adhesives, can cause irritation along the gum line, and may cause a feeling of ‘slippage’ that impairs your ability to speak, eat, and drink with ease,” says Dr. Trichas. To address these concerns – as well as provide a more cosmetically appealing solution – the dentist offers patients at Upper East Side Dental Arts the solution of implant supported dentures.
Dr. Trichas highlights that, with the use of dental implants, he is able to provide his patients with replacement dentures that achieve superior stability and comfort. “By strategically placing a select number of dental implants along the gum line, your replacement denture can be securely fastened into place for a precise, comfortable fit,” says the New York City dentist. He notes that the benefits of implant supported dentures also include the elimination of all adhesives, minimized risk of bone loss, and reduced stress to the gums.
For Dr. Trichas’ restorative dentistry patients seeking denture replacement without the wait, he offers All-on-4® and All-on-6® anchored dentures – a procedure that can be performed in one day. While also using dental implants to secure the replacement denture into place, All-on-4® and All-on-6® anchored dentures use angled posterior implants to maximize bone-to-implant contact. Because of this advantage, Dr. Trichas notes that “patients with minimal jawbone density who may not be ideal candidates for a full set of dental implants or implant supported dentures may be candidates for All-on-4® and All-on-6® dentures.”
Dr. Trichas uses one-on-one consultations to thoroughly review medical records, perform an oral exam, and carefully listen to each individual patient’s concerns before recommending which denture replacement approach might best meet the patient’s needs and expectations.
