For edentulous patients, All-on-4 implants have completely changed their lives. Not only do the dental restorations improve a patient’s facial profile, but they also make it easier for a patient to chew, eat, and speak. Therefore, for people with missing teeth, who no longer have their real teeth, All-on-4 implants, along with fixed dentures, do make a big difference.
The Benefits Of All-On-4 Implants And Fixed Dentures
All-on-4 implants make it possible to obtain full dentures affordably and conveniently. Therefore, you can restore your entire smile using only 4 implants. Moreover, you can have the teeth placed in 1 day. The treatment for the procedure involves one surgery. The placement is made securely in the jawbone to ensure that the implants will not loosen or shift. For this procedure, you will not need a bone graft. Even if you have some bone resorption or have lost some bone, we can still add the implants.
Some Things To Keep In Mind
Since you receive the implants and dentures the same day, you cannot test the restorations, as you can with other dentures, to verify the fit. Also, we will not place the implants in the molar area, as the bite force is more significant there and could damage the teeth or lead to other problems, such as chewing issues. If you have been using a fixative to keep your removable dentures in place or you have been taking your teeth out each night to clean them, you will not have to do so when you get your All-on-4 restorations. The All-on-4 implants are both permanent and reliable and are the next best thing to having real teeth. You will still have to take care of the teeth, as you would normal teeth. However, the fixed dentures are easier to maintain than removable dentures.
