Dentures are the most sought-after solution for replacing multiple missing teeth. They are composed of ceramic teeth mounted on an acrylic base, which is made to mimic the gums. These prosthetic restorations have been around for several decades now. However, they do pose a few drawbacks, of which their instability is a significant concern. Imagine having a denture in your mouth while socializing with your loved ones, and it suddenly slips out when you’re talking or laughing! The embarrassment that you could face is unimaginable.
Hence, we would like to present to you a more advanced and highly stable means of restoring multiple missing teeth – All-on-4 implants!
What are All-on-4 Implants?
The name gives it away – all the teeth of a jaw mounted on just four dental implants. Sounds almost impossible, but it is one of the most popular restorative options in recent time. The dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the mouth and determine your candidacy for All-on-4 implants. If confirmed, you can have a complete smile transformation in a single visit to our dental practice.
What are the advantages of All-on-4 implants?
As opposed to conventional dentures, All-on-4 implants have excellent stability, thanks to the four dental implants holding the prosthetic teeth in place.
They offer unmatched strength and durability, as the teeth are made from dental-grade ceramic, and the implants are made from titanium.
The ceramic teeth can be highly customized to match the appearance of the natural teeth, which helps you smile or talk without feeling conscious of your oral appearance.
Placing dental implants in the jawbone prevents jawbone deterioration or shrinkage, thereby helping maintain its health. This keeps your jawbone from getting disfigured.
Perhaps, the best part about All-on-4 implants is that the entire procedure of removing the damaged/decayed teeth, placing the dental implants, fabricating the prosthetic teeth, and placing them on the implants takes no more than a single visit to our practice. Within a few hours, you can get rid of your displeasing smile and have perfectly fabricated prosthetic teeth in place.
