Dentures are an incredible way to replace missing teeth, whether through a partial set or a complete, full-mouth restoration.
When you think of dentures, you may also think of adhesives and jars on the bedside table. We have some exciting news on that account: adhesives are no longer the only viable way to attach dentures!
With the All-on-4® treatment concept, we can use dental implants to craft a more permanent solution for you with minimum worry and maximum quality.
Dental implants involve the placement of a synthetic tooth root into the jawbone. This root is usually made of titanium. It can also be crafted from high-grade dental ceramic.
Once this implant has healed together with the bone of the jaw—a process called osseointegration—a crown is placed atop it, completing the replacement tooth structure.
Implants can also be used to support full sets of dentures, rather than just a single crown. The All-on-4® treatment concept does exactly that. As the name suggests, these dentures are supported on just four implants that are strategically placed to provide the most secure hold possible.
With your dentures firmly and comfortably anchored to the implant roots, they not only restore your biting surface, but your denture implants also help keep the gums and jawbone healthy.
Benefits of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Implants are a wonderful addition to dentistry, but it isn’t always either possible or feasible to replace an entire mouthful of missing teeth with individual implants. The reasons for this can vary from insufficient jawbone mass to prohibitive time and costs.
That’s where the revolutionary nature of the All-on-4® treatment concept comes in to become such a great choice for so many people. This method takes the strength, durability, and longevity of dental implants and combines it with the convenience and customizability of dentures. Together, you get the best of both worlds in a streamlined and efficient format.
The benefits don’t end there! Implant-supported dentures are:
- Hypoallergenic. Titanium implant rods have an extremely low rate of negative reaction.
- Durable. Some patients report excellent results after thirty years of use.
- High-quality. Each set is made specific to you and only you.
- Strong. An implant-supported attachment won’t slip or come loose throughout the day.
These benefits can give you both comfort and security when you need to replace your teeth.
