How All-On-4® Dentures Can Help You

How-All-On-4®-Dentures-Can-Help-You.jpg

With the support of dental implants, your replacement teeth can look and feel as comfortable and sturdy as your healthy, natural teeth. However, for patients who’ve lost all of their teeth, the need for multiple implant posts can prove challenging. For instance, severe tooth loss can affect the strength and integrity of your jawbone, making implant placement difficult. Fortunately, All-On-4® dentures can help you enjoy the benefits of dental implants by supporting your full denture on only four implant posts.

The Procedure Is Less Invasive

Dental implant posts are designed to mimic the way healthy teeth roots work, and are therefore placed inside of your jawbone. The more implants you receive, the more surgery you’ll require. With All-On-4® implants, we can limit the amount of surgery you need by optimizing your smile restoration with only four dental implant posts.

You Can Restore Both Dental Ridges

The beauty of All-On-4® dentures (and all dental implant restorations) is that they can be custom-designed to help you replace lost teeth on either your upper and/or lower dental ridges. For many patients, All-On-4® dentures are particularly beneficial for restoring the upper dental ridge, where the jawbone is typically less dense than the lower jawbone.

You Can Enjoy Your Smile for Life

Perhaps best of all, dental implant posts can last for life with proper care and maintenance, and implant dentures can last for years longer than traditional dentures. If your prosthesis becomes worn or damaged, then your dentist can custom design a new one faster and with more accuracy thanks to the preservation of your jawbone.

After having lost all of your teeth on your upper or lower dental ridge, the loss can have a significant impact on your oral health, self-confidence, and overall wellbeing. The good news is that dentures are a common and highly effective solution for rebuilding smiles. The better news is that, with All-On-4® implants, you can now enjoy a sturdier and more lifelike denture with only four dental implant posts! If you want to completely rebuild your smile, then speak with your dentist to find out if you should choose All-On-4® implant dentures.

1. The procedure is faster than traditional implant dentures.

The greatest benefit to All-On-4® is that they only require four implant posts to support your complete denture. Each post is strategically placed to maximize the support of your denture, and by relying on only four posts, your implant surgery will be faster and more convenient than traditional implant denture placement.

2. They can be placed on the upper and/or lower dental ridge.

All-On-4® implant dentures can be placed on your upper and/or lower dental ridge, depending on your specific needs. This ability means that more people can enjoy their benefits regardless of which dental ridge needs to be restored. If you’ve lost all of your teeth on both of your dental ridges, then All-On-4® dentures can provide a convenient but comprehensive way to completely rebuild your smile.

3. They’re easy to maintain.

When your dentures are secured to a series of dental implants, they’re significantly easier to maintain and take care of. Easier and more effective hygiene and maintenance means you have a reduced risk of developing oral health issues, like gum disease, due to your restoration.

Benefits Of All-On-4 Dental Implants

For those of you who wear dentures or those of you who may need dentures, All-on-4 Dental Implants are an answer to long-term denture stability. With All-on-4’s your full denture will be supported on only four implant posts. If you were to replace all of your teeth individually with implants, you would need an implant post for every tooth. All-on-4 implants are an extremely less invasive and easier option. In today’s blog, we discuss some of the benefits of All-on-4’s.

Benefits of All-on-4’s

Some of the most important benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants include stability, strength, the prevention of jawbone atrophy, and prevention of the aged look that comes with wearing dentures for a long period of time.

Strength and Stability: Traditional dentures are held in place by natural suction against your dental ridges and denture adhesive, but neither are fool proof. One of the major complaints is that dentures can slip and rub when you talk or eat. This can definitely be disconcerting. With All-on-4 Dental Implants that problem is eliminated because your denture is snapped onto four strategically placed implants that hold it secure, providing unprecedented strength when chewing and stability at all times, especially when eating and speaking.

Jawbone Atrophy: If we did not have teeth, our jawbone would practically disintegrate. That’s because when we chew, the pressure on the roots of our teeth signal our body to send much needed blood and nutrients to our jawbone. This is what keeps our jawbone strong and healthy. If you lose all of your teeth and no longer have roots, your jawbone will begin to disintegrate. By choosing All-on-4 Dental Implants that problem is eliminated because the implants replace your roots.

The Aged Look: When you are completely edentulous (toothless), and your jawbone begins to atrophy, your face will begin to take on a sunken-in, aged appearance. All-on-4 Dental Implants prevent this from happening because the implants keep your jawbone healthy and intact, and the replacement teeth support your facial features.

Question #2: What are the benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?

Answer: There are many benefits associated with All-on-4 Dental Implants. The major benefit is that for patients who have lost one or more teeth on their upper or lower dental ridge, or both, the idea of getting an implant placed for every missing tooth can be downright scary. With All-on-4 Dental Implants that is not necessary. Other benefits include:

  • They won’t slip when you eat or talk
  • No need to take them out
  • No need for denture adhesives
  • You will bite with increased force so you can eat all of your favorite foods regardless of how hard or how crunchy

  • They will restore your facial features

Question #3: How do All-on-4 Dental Implants differ from traditional implants?

Answer: While traditional implants utilize anywhere from six to eight implants or more per arch, All-on-4 Dental Implants utilize only four implants per arch placed at an angle for increased contact using the natural support of your bone. Therefore, they save time, money, and discomfort.
