In the past, dentures were the only real option for replacing your teeth. However, they could be ill-fitting and inconvenient to care for. Luckily, technology has significantly improved. Here at Atlantic Dental Partners, we offer All-On-4 implant dentures. What are they and how do they work?
What Are All-on-4 implants?
When you’re missing a full arch of teeth, All-On-4 dentures restore your smile. First, implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. These take the place of your natural tooth roots. After a period of healing, you’re ready for your dentures. A full set of upper or lower dentures are fit on top of the implants, locking them into place. That means no more slipping around!
Benefits of All-On-4 implants
Implant-supported dentures have many benefits over traditional dentures. The first is that because they’re fit on top of the implants, they’re extremely secure. That means you can eat whatever you want and you don’t need to mess with adhesive creams. These dentures don’t even need to be removed or soaked. You care for them with brushing and flossing like your natural teeth.
The last benefit is that implants preserve your oral health in the long-term. When you don’t have a tooth root, your jawbone weakens over time. This leads to facial sagging, making you look older than you are. With implants, however, we’re putting in a substitute tooth root. The All-On-4 system preserves your jawbone and the shape of your face.
Concerned you don’t have enough jawbone to begin with? The All-On-4 is designed to work with minimal bone structure, so you don’t need to worry about bone grafting. We can get you all set up with implants and dentures much faster than with other methods.
