What exactly are All-On-4 dentures?
Like the name implies, All-On-4 dentures are custom-made, high-quality prosthetics that are supported by just four dental implants on the top or bottom arch of the mouth. These four implants are placed at strategic angles throughout the jawbone so that they can support the new denture, and their fixed position allows them to function like a natural smile.
How are All-On-4 dentures different than traditional implants?
With traditional implants, six to eight implants would be required to stabilize the new denture. However, when a patient has lost many teeth, their jawbone has often deteriorated to the point that it cannot support this many implants – at least, not without a time-consuming bone grafting procedure. Thankfully, All-On-4 dentures are able to achieve very similar results while saving our patients valuable time and money!
What are the benefits of All-On-4 dentures?
- They don’t have to be taken out and cleaned separately from the rest of the mouth.
- The patient won’t need any messy adhesives.
- They prevent further jawbone deterioration.
- They help support your facial features and can revitalize your appearance.
- They’re typically completed in a single appointment, which means you won’t have to be without a strong, confident smile!
