When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dentures have been one of the go-to options for quite some time, capable of even restoring one or both arches of lost pearly whites. However, dental implants take tooth replacement one step further—by being embedded directly into a patient’s jawbone, they offer unparalleled support and awesomely unique benefits. One method of this, known as the “All-on-4” method, has become quite popular these days. Continue reading to learn more from your trusted dentist about this innovative treatment option and why patients are quite excited about it!

What Exactly Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

To put it simply, all-on-4 implants are used to support a full denture that’s replacing an entire arch of missing teeth. This method utilizes four strategically placed dental implants, rather than the traditional eight. It’s considered more cost-effective, just as successful, and can easily assist patients who’ve experienced bone atrophy due to tooth loss and might not be able to support standard implants. These implants are also much more secure than bridges or dentures, which makes them ideal for those who chew tough foods or perform regular physical activities.

What Advantages Do All-on-4 Implants Offer?

All-on-4 dental implants offer many praiseworthy benefits that other restorative options don’t. Consider the following:

  • Dental implants prevent bone loss and degradation by providing the jaw with healthy stimulation. Over time, as teeth are lost, the jawbone can weaken, and more teeth can fall out. Implants reduce this risk and allow for more predictable treatment outcomes!
  • Oral functionality and original bite force are restored, allowing for a patient to bite, chew, and eat with ease. It also means that speaking, laughing, and socializing are easier than ever before!
  • The new teeth look natural; others won’t be able to tell that the implants are even there, whereas with dentures, it’s sometimes easy to tell.
  • This solution eliminates the need for denture adhesive or special denture cleaning solutions. The new teeth are also much easier to care for, and there are little changes in terms of daily oral hygiene.
  • Dental implants can last for several decades under ideal circumstances, making them the longest-lasting tooth replacement option around!

Losing teeth can be devastating for several reasons—obviously, your oral functionality is at stake, but also, your self-esteem can take a huge hit. Fortunately, all-on-4 is an incredible solution that’ll set you up for a future of great oral health and soaring confidence!
