What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Losing your teeth can shake your confidence. Traditional dentures can slip, making it difficult to chew your food or speak properly. All-on-4 dental implants offer a better option. They prevent the erosion of the jawbone and stabilize your dentures. This procedure gives you the confidence you need to smile often and enjoy your food. In addition, the treatment is cost-effective as you can avoid bone grafting, which is more costly.
4 Implants or Less
Implants are posts that are secured firmly into the jawbone. With proper placement, it only takes four implants to secure your denture firmly in place sufficiently. Once you have lost your teeth, the bone has nothing to maintain its structure. By implanting the posts into the bone, it prevents erosion which can lead to excessive bone loss. For many people, it only takes four posts strategically placed to hold your complete denture in place.
Implants offer a more secure fit that prevents slipping and sliding. There is less shifting which prevents debris from becoming caught under your denture. You can eat, smile, and speak without fear of your denture sliding out of place. Less movement also means less irritation. Dentures that are secure and firmly snapped into place mean you have the confidence to smile and speak as naturally as possible.
Over time, dentures can wear down just as your gum line may change. That will loosen how your dentures fit, making it harder for you to hold them in place. Slippage can make your dentures uncomfortable. You may have to alter the way you speak to ensure your dentures don’t move or shift out of position. All-on-4 dental implants don’t move once they are snapped into place. They remain secure for as long as your implants are in place.
