Say goodbye to the embarrassing slips and slides that can happen with regular dentures! Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums, All-on-4 implant-supported dentures are anchored into the jawbone by four strategically placed titanium dental implant posts. This added support creates a level of stability that is unmatched by traditional dentures.
Also, All-on-4 dental implants allow patients to chew and speak with more confidence, as they won’t have to worry about their dentures shifting out of place. Thanks to this innovative technology, patients can enjoy a more seamless, comfortable, and secure denture experience.
For those who have lost teeth or have been wearing traditional dentures for some time, the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures can be a shared experience. Fortunately, All-on-4 dental implants offer a more comfortable solution without compromising function. While ill-fitting dentures can move around and cause sore spots and irritation, All-on-4 implant-supported dentures are secure. They are designed to mimic natural teeth for a more comfortable and natural feel.
When you lose a tooth, the area in the jawbone that used to support that tooth no longer receives the necessary stimulation it needs to maintain its form and density. Over time, the jawbone starts to deteriorate and weaken, leading to a loss of jawbone volume and density. This loss is called jawbone atrophy and can cause further tooth loss, and it can also give your face a sunken or aged appearance.
Jawbone atrophy is a common problem for people who wear traditional dentures. This is because traditional dentures rest on top of the gums and do not provide the jawbone with the necessary stimulation to maintain its form and density, making it difficult for dentures to fit correctly.
Dental implants, on the other hand, are surgically placed into the jawbone and provide the necessary stimulation to keep the jawbone healthy and strong. Implant-supported dentures may be the answer to preserving your jawbone health over traditional dentures.
