If you have one or more teeth from your smile, dental implants may be part of your solution to replacing them. However, the loss of several teeth or your entire smile can make the prospect of dental implant surgery intimidating. Fortunately, there is an option to replace all of your teeth or just a section of your smile with fewer implants than teeth. With All-On-4 implant dentures, your dentures can be supported by only four strategically placed implant posts. Traditional dentures would need to be supported by at least six to eight posts.
Easier To Maintain
Dentures supported by implants are easier to clean and care for than dentures that are glued or clipped in. Dental implants act like prosthetic roots of your teeth. Dentures that are secured by implants are closer to your gum line than traditional dentures. This close proximity allows for a more lifelike appearance, but it also makes it harder for bacteria to hide between the gums and dentures. Implants help to minimize the risk of potential loss of bone density in your jaw. When your jaw bone can lose density, it can change the shape of your jaw over time. A changing jawbone can affect the way your dentures fit. All-On-4® dentures help to decrease the risk of bone loss and an ill-fitting set of dentures.
Works For Top, Bottom, or Both
Whether you need to restore your upper ridge of the teeth, your lower ridge, or both, your smile can benefit from All-On-4® implant dentures . The system can be customized and planned to suit your specific needs. The implants are placed in such a way to absorb the pressure from your bite.
Fewer Implants; Faster Treatment
