Losing multiple teeth is a common occurrence as you age. When you lose all or most of the teeth on your upper or lower jaw, your ability to speak and eat is hampered. Fortunately, there are tooth replacement options that can give you a full set of functioning teeth so you can continue to eat the foods you love and communicate clearly. You’re probably familiar with traditional dentures, but did you know there is a more comfortable, natural-looking option when it comes to full-arch tooth replacement/ All-on-4 dental implants are reliable, fully functional and known to last for years. Here are a few reasons to choose All-on-4 dental implants over traditional dentures.
All-on-4 dental implants use several implant posts to hold a prosthesis in place. These posts give the prosthesis impressive strength and durability. If you take good care of your All-on-4 implants and have a skilled periodontist place them, they will last for many years.
Since the All-on-4 dental implant system is secured tightly to your jaw bone, it doesn’t “float” uncomfortably on top of your gums. You’ll be surprised how quickly you get used to the feel of the tooth replacement system in your mouth and how comfortable it becomes over time.
All-on-4 dental implants look like real teeth. They also function and feel like real teeth. When your teeth look good, your self-esteem inevitably improves and you can enjoy life with greater confidence.
Unlike traditional dentures that only come into contact with the gums, All-on-4 dental implants have implant posts that are placed directly in the jaw. The posts provide consistent stimulation to the jaw bone and discourage degradation.
