Do you wish you could speed up the process of replacing lost teeth? Are you tired of living with a noticeably incomplete smile? Fortunately, All-on-4 is a same-day procedure that addresses the loss of teeth with dental implants and dentures. By using dentures supported by dental implants, a patient can enjoy increased oral function and longevity of their prosthetics because they are anchored by the jawbone. Our periodontist offers All-on-4 for people suffering from tooth loss in our community.
What is All-on-4?
All-on-4 is a tooth replacement method that replaces the lost roots of teeth with dental implants and replaces the missing structures of teeth with dentures secured to dental implants. This tooth replacement method increases oral function by stabilizing prosthetic teeth beneath the surface of the gums with dental implants. With All-on-4, patients can enjoy a balanced diet full of diverse foods without dentures moving – especially when compared to conventional dentures. The way All-on-4 works is by strategically embedded implants supporting the weight of a full denture. Implants are placed in very precise locations by our periodontist to ensure that dentures will receive optimal support.
What makes All-on-4 beneficial?
All-on-4 presents a few unique benefits to patients. First, denture stability is greatly increased with dental implants used as anchors. Once implants are stabilized, patients will not experience denture movement when eating or speaking. Secondly, dental implants will keep the jawbone healthy and active, which will help patients retain a youthful appearance. With a diminished likelihood of bone deterioration, dentures will fit properly.
Will my smile look natural?
Today’s prosthetic teeth are unlike prosthetics of the past when it comes to their durability, functionality, and appearance. A denture is made to very exact measurements from lifelike materials such as porcelain and pink acrylic. Porcelain beautifully mimics the appearance of biological teeth while the acrylic bases of dentures fade into the gums seamlessly. A smile with All-on-4 is both beautiful and practical.
