Did you know that you could receive a brand new smile in one day? With same day dentures, people can have dental implants and their custom dentures placed in one convenient procedure. Dental implants help stabilize dentures so that patients enjoy optimal oral function and a beautiful, natural looking smile.
All-on-4 is a method of securing a full arch of prosthetic teeth (dentures) to strategically located dental implants. This tooth replacement method is ideal for edentulous patients. Following is some helpful information about All-on-4 and how it could benefit you.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are prosthetics made from titanium. They resemble a screw because they have a ridged texture and gradually become wider on one end. These prosthetics are used to replace the missing roots of teeth.
When used to replace multiple missing teeth, a series of dental implants are embedded throughout the jaw to support the weight thrust upon a full denture during oral function. Once embedded into the jaw, implants will eventually become stabilized by bone so that they will not move during oral function.
Why Choose All-on-4
All-on-4 is advantageous to patients with significant or total tooth loss because this tooth replacement method increases the longevity and stability of dentures. By anchoring dentures to implants, patients can enjoy a well-rounded diet that includes foods that are difficult to chew with conventional dentures. Additionally, same day dentures can add youth and vitality to one’s appearance by lifting and filling in the mouth and cheeks.
A common issue that affects patients with tooth loss is bone atrophy. This is because the bone becomes inactive due to the loss of the root systems of teeth. Fortunately, dental implants keep bone stimulated to prevent the loss of additional bone structure. Losing bone is another factor that prematurely ages those afflicted with tooth loss.
