Full Dental Implants/All-on-4
Are you tired of the slipping and sliding of traditional dentures? Or do you have missing teeth and are unsure how to restore your smile? Let us introduce you to dental implants. Dental implants are the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement. They are strong, durable, and look and feel just like your natural teeth.
What Are Full Dental Implants?
Those who are missing most of their teeth can benefit from full mouth restoration using dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed into your jawbone to serve as a replacement for your natural teeth that were lost due to decay or injury. Once the implant is in place, an artificial tooth (called a crown) is placed on top of the implant.
What Is All-on-4?
All-on-4 dental implants work by placing four titanium posts into your jawbone. These posts act as anchors for your new teeth. The implants are placed at an angle to fuse with your bone and provide maximum support. Once the implants are placed, your new teeth will be attached to them.
What Is The Difference Between Full-Mouth Dental Implants and All-on-4?
All-on-4 is the same concept for replacing missing teeth but differs from full-mouth dental implants because fewer implants are required to restore your smile. With full-mouth dental implants, an implant will be placed for every missing tooth. With the All-on-4 dental implant procedure, 4-6 dental implants can support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth.
What Are The Benefits of Full-Mouth or All-on-4 Dental Implants?
There are many benefits of dental implants over other methods of tooth replacement, such as dentures or bridges. First and foremost, dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you want without worry or embarrassment. Additionally, dental implants are much more durable than other options and, with proper care, can last a lifetime!
And with full mouth or All-on-4 dental implants, you can say goodbye to:
- Removing your teeth at night
- Missing teeth
- Difficulty eating foods
- Discomfort (or an uncomfortable fit)
- Denture adhesive
- Denture cleaning solutions
- Removing your denture for oral care
- Slippage when speaking, chewing, or eating
- Misaligned bite
- Facial sagging
- Lower self-esteem
- Hiding that beautiful smile of yours!
