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.
