Benefits of All-on-4 ® Implant Dentures
All-on-4 ® implant dentures are a middle path between highly expensive tooth replacement options that rely on many dental implants and traditional dentures that are loose, ineffective, and uncomfortable.
With its advanced technology and intelligent approach, All-on-4 ® offers many benefits, including:
- Replace all your teeth in just one day
- Replacement teeth look and function like natural teeth
- Denture won’t slip
- Teeth can be either completely fixed or removable
- Replace teeth without bone graft
- Less expensive than other treatment plans
- Great long-term survival
With All-on-4 ®, you get a high quality denture placed on the top, bottom, or both. This procedure can be completed in just one day–you’ll leave our office with a full set of teeth. When healing is complete, your implant dentures will function just like natural teeth. And you can avoid the expense and time that it takes to do a bone graft.
But the success rate for All-on-4 ® is just as high as for other dental implants, and studies show that as much as 98% of restorations last 10 years or more.
How Does All-on-4 ® Work?
How can All-on-4 ® achieve all these benefits? It’s a highly engineered system that builds on decades of dental implant experience. Designers of the system identified the areas where the jaw has the best bone density, then designed implants to maximize the support of that bone. Two of the implants are angled so they can be longer and get more support. That’s how the system avoids the need for bone grafts in most cases.
The system is designed so that the four implants share the burden. This gives implants the right amount of stress so that they heal and grow strong bone, but not so much that can impair healing and lead to failure.
Because the forces are balanced, most people can get a temporary denture installed the same day the implants are placed. This attractive, highly functional denture fosters healing and gives you a beautiful smile. Once healing around the implants is complete, you will be fitted with a permanent restoration. At that point, we will decide whether a fixed or removable restoration is best for you.
A Natural Appearance
All-on-4 ® implant dentures are designed to look very natural. You have several options in selecting your final restoration, but many people choose the durable, attractive zirconia dentures. These don’t just have the color of natural teeth, they have the same reflective luster as natural teeth. And their stain resistance means they can look attractive for a long time.
We can also make sure the custom-designed to achieve your cosmetic goals and match your personal appearance.
And because the system is all made at once, there’s no risk that you’ll end up with a mismatch, the way you might if you get individual implants and crowns.
Is All-on-4 ® Right for You?
Because of its superb engineering design, All-on-4 ® implant dentures are a great choice for most people. However, they are not right for everyone.
In some cases, you may not have enough bone or your bone may not be configured properly for the system.
People with current or recurring gum disease may not be good candidates for All-on-4 ®. Anyone who does get the system should be committed to good oral hygiene to ensure healthy, long-lasting results.
