If you’re missing teeth, there are a few things you can do. For instance, you may know about dental bridges, dentures, or implants, but have you ever heard of All-on-4 dental implants? If not, we recommend considering this restoration system to complete your smile.
As you may know, implants are designed to fuse with your jawbone to simulate natural roots. All-on-4 implants are designed to offer stability as well but require less bone structure to be successful. This is extremely useful because a lack of supporting bone structure make implants a poor option for some patients, meaning All-on-4 implants can be useful when traditional implants can’t be used.
The All-on-4 implant system also resembles dentures. Artificial teeth are created to fill holes in your smile, but unlike dentures, All-on-4 implants are not removable. Similarly, All-on-4 implants offer a few benefits dentures can’t. For instance, food will not get between these implants and your teeth, the appliance will not slip, and the appliance will allow for more biting force.
Of course, there are certain circumstances that make the All-on-4 system an ideal option. Specifically, our dentist may recommend All-on-4 implants if you have five or more missing teeth in one arch, have gum disease, or suffer from tooth or jaw decay.
