When a patient is missing all of their teeth or wears dentures, Dr. Scott R. Adishian may recommend All-on-4™ in Pasadena, California. All-on-4 dentures are replacement permanent teeth that look and feel like natural teeth. Each arch is supported by four dental implants. Our dentist places the dental implants at an angle, which increases the support of each dental implant. The All-on-4 procedure does not require bone grafting for most patients as traditional implant procedures often do. All-on-4 dentures can save the patient time, money, and discomfort.
All-on-4 dentures have many advantages over traditional dentures. You will brush them like you would natural teeth. They do not need to be taken out and this type of denture does not need adhesives. All-on-4 dentures do not press down on your gums, so they are comfortable. With All-on-4 dentures, your taste will not be hampered and you will be able to feel hot and cold temperatures in food. These dentures allow you to eat all of your favorite foods. They also prevent the deterioration of bone and restore your face shape.
