If you’ve read this blog or have visited our website, you know that we are huge proponents of dental implants. More specifically, we are focused on using All-on-4 dental implants to help patients who are missing all of their teeth — or struggling with removable dentures.
All-on-4 dental implants are our go-to service when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Today, I want to tell you about the biggest advantages of All-on-4 dental implants. You’ll learn what they are, how they work, and the major advantages.
What are All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants is a special implant system used to eliminate the need for removable dentures. We place a series of dental implants in each arch —four in one arch and four in the another. We can place a few more dental implants if necessary. Once the implants are in place, we restore the implants with zirconia bridges that are lifelike and durable.
Biggest advantages of All-on-4 dental implants
Dental implants are stable and provide support that nearly matches your natural teeth. Dental implants, which are made from titanium, do not get cavities and naturally merge with the jawbone. The implants also preserve the jawbone. Those are a few general advantages of dental implants. Now here are some specifics about All-on-4-dental implants.
- Permanent replacement teeth. Most full-mouth replacement tooth options are not permanent. Implant-supported dentures are removable and the dentures can still break or be misplaced. All-on-4 dental implants are permanent, in that they can only be removed by a dental professional. You’ll never go looking for your teeth again, and you’ll never have to worry about denture adhesives again.
- Strong, durable material. The material is everything when it comes to a dental restoration. All-on-4 dental implants are restored with zirconia bridges. Zirconia is one of the strongest materials used in dentistry and is lifelike. Zirconia is also non-porous, which means it does not stain.
- No more covering the roof of your mouth. Removable dentures and even implant-supported dental implants cover the roof of the mouth. This may seem like a small inconvenience, but it’s more than that. When the roof of your mouth is covered, you block some of your taste and cannot experience some cold and hot sensations. You’d be surprised how excited All-on-4 dental implants are about feeling their hot coffee or soup on the roof of their mouth again.
Those are some of the big advantages of All-on-4. We look at All-on-4 as a blend between implant-supported teeth and replacing every missing tooth with a dental implants. All-on-4 gives you great support.
We’ve seen All-on-4 dental implants turn around a person’s oral health. They get their teeth back. They get their confidence back. And with dental implants keeping the jaw bone from receding, the patients even look younger.
