Benefits of All-on-4

Though other choices are available, this one provides advantages that others cannot match. You should learn as much as you can about these dental implants and why they might make sense for your health and appearance. Living without teeth is difficult. With this approach, you can have many of the things you have been missing.

An overview of All-on-4 dental implants

Most people are probably familiar with implants and dentures. All-on-4 combines the two, providing a good middle ground for people who have suffered tooth loss. It consists of four dental implants in both jaws, with a gum-colored base attached to the implants. This treatment can work well for people who are missing multiple teeth or all of their teeth. The dentist surgically places the implants deep into the patient’s jaw. The prosthesis has artificial teeth and snaps onto the implants.

Before beginning treatment, the patient will go to the dentist’s office for a consultation. The dentist will take X-rays, make impressions, and extract any teeth, if necessary. During the first surgery, the dentist implants the posts. Once the patient heals from this procedure, the dentist attaches abutments to the posts. The dentist puts on the prosthesis, making sure it is a secure and comfortable fit.

A durable option

Traditional dentures usually last about 10 years. All-on-4 implants can last for up to 10 years or more. Patients who take good care of the appliance and who brush and floss daily should expect a long life span from the implants. The dentist will regularly follow up with the patient to make sure the treatment is effective.

More comfortable

Many people are choosing All-on-4 over dentures because of comfort. The denture base rests directly on the gums. This can cause soreness and irritation in the mouth. All-on-4 snap into the implants, so there should be no concerns of rubbing on the gums. People who wear this appliance should experience far fewer issues of discomfort.

A natural look

People who have large gaps in their mouth may feel ashamed or embarrassed. These individuals may avoid being around other people and may not want to smile. With All-on-4, patients can feel good about showing their smile once again. The artificial teeth match natural teeth in color, size, and shape.

People who have them can eat most foods

When a person is missing teeth, it is difficult to have a healthy, well-balanced diet. It is challenging, if not impossible, to eat certain foods without teeth. All-on-4 implants allow the person to chew most foods. This treatment improves the person’s bite force. It restores the full function of the mouth.

A smart way to replace your missing teeth

You no longer have to choose between dentures or implants. Instead, you can enjoy the benefits that both of these approaches provide. Talk to your dentist today about your aesthetic and oral health goals. Ask whether you are a good candidate for All-on-4 implants. You can once again feel positive about smiling.
