Are you curious about the benefits of All-on-4? Perhaps a friend, neighbor, or coworker wears dentures supported by dental implants. Stabilizing dentures with dental implants is a relatively new treatment option that effectively increases oral function.
With All-on-4, people can enjoy far more diverse diets than they can with conventional dentures. This is because denture movement and slippage is eliminated when dentures are secured to dental implants. Since patients who wear All-on-4 typically enjoy a bigger variety of foods than those with unsupported dentures, those with All-on-4 tend to have overall better nutrition.
What is All-on-4 exactly?
All-on-4 is a specific method of securing dentures to dental implants by strategically embedding four dental implants throughout the jaw. Since these implants are strategically located and spaced apart just right, an entire denture can be supported by just four implants. Once dental implants are loaded into the jawbone, custom dentures are attached to them via abutments on the end of dental implants.
Will my smile look natural?
All-on-4 does lend a very natural looking appearance to one’s smile. One reason for this is the fact that dental implants will keep dentures from moving during speech or meals. With increased oral function and the ability to enjoy life without fear of denture movement, patients can enjoy prosthetic teeth that function more like biological teeth.
Secondly, today’s dentures are crafted from very beautiful and lifelike materials by trained dental laboratory technicians. Every denture is made for the individual and the specifications used to produce a denture are very precise so that prosthetics fit comfortably and accentuate one’s unique oral anatomy and facial features.
