All-on-4 Dental Implants
Patients who have lost or are losing their teeth can find themselves struggling to live the life they want. Loss of teeth impacts everything from what you can eat, to your ease of speech, all the way to your self-esteem. Luckily, advances in dental technology have introduced new and effective methods for replacing lost teeth. Whether you are in the process of losing your teeth, or are already wearing dentures, all-on-4 dental implants are the perfect solution to the problem.
What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a permanent set of teeth that are implanted into your jaw using screws. They look and feel just like natural teeth, can be brushed and cleaned like natural teeth, and do not have to be taken out like standard dentures. Patients have customarily praised all-on-4 implant supported dentures for their stability, comfort, and look. An all-on-4 implant procedure can restore both your smile and your other facial features, while also allowing you to eat all of your food again.
Why All-on-4 Implant Supported Dentures Are Better Than Other Teeth Replacement Options
All-on-4 implants are superior to other forms of surgically implanted dentures for four primary reasons:
- Easier Surgery: Normally, implant supported dentures are executed through complicated surgical procedures that involve bone grafting. In most cases, all-on-4 procedures can be done without bone grafting, which reduces the cost and length of the surgery.
- Fewer Implants: Most types of surgically implanted dentures use between six and eight implants per arch. The all-on-4 procedure manages an entire arch restoration with just four implants.
- Quicker Results: In most cases, all-on-4 procedures can be completed in just one day, which leads to more immediate results and patient satisfaction. We don’t just mean one arch per day, but potentially all of your teeth, in just a matter of hours (approximately 2.5 hours per arch).
- Greater Comfort: Where other types of dental implants can press on your gums in a painful and uncomfortable fashion, all-on-4 implants are often praised for a more comfortable, natural feel. In addition, no type of adhesive is necessary with all-on-4 implants.
