Are all of your teeth missing? Are you looking for an alternative to dentures?
All-on-4 dental implants are extremely popular for people who need to restore all of their teeth at one time. With All-on-4 treatment, a hybrid restoration is permanently fixed onto four implants placed at strategic points in your jaw. Since the weight of chewing is distributed evenly, it’s rare to require more than 4-6 implants total for a full-arch prosthesis. There’s no need to place an implant at the location of each missing tooth.
Benefits of All-on-4 Implants
All-on-4 designs are more streamlined than traditional dentures. The contoured restoration follows the natural curve of your smile, freeing up the roof of your mouth. They’re extremely easy to speak and eat with. Even firmer textures of foods are no trouble to chew with these full-arch designs.
The most noticeable benefits of a hybrid implant appliance (vs. dentures) are perks like:
- More comfortable to wear
- Designed to look and function like natural teeth
- No dietary restrictions
- Normal speech and chewing function
- Support your facial profile, bone, and soft tissues
Since dental implants help delay bone loss, they prolong a more youthful facial profile when compared to a removable appliance. While traditional denture are still extremely beneficial to a wide number of our clients, they may not necessarily be the best option for everyone. Understanding what your choices are can make moving forward with smile rehabilitation something you feel more confident about.
