Why Choose Implant-Supported Dentures
Traditional dentures can be uncomfortable, encourage bone loss which can cause a sunken face look and age you, require adhesives to hold them in place and special cleansers to clean them. They can also become lost or damaged after removal for cleaning. No one wants to have their teeth accidentally fall out during a conversation or to give up their favorite foods.
All On Four implant-supported dentures change the game of teeth replacement by offering significant advantages over traditional dentures.
So, What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?
All On Four, All-On-Four, or All-On-4 dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. We use titanium posts set into the jawbone in four places on the top or bottom set of gums, or both. These posts provide strong support for your set of new teeth.
How Long Does It Take To Replace Upper Or Lower Teeth?
According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, this tooth replacement option can be performed in as little as one day. You can get your entire upper or lower arch replaced with natural looking, low-maintenance dentures, often in one visit. That is why some dentists call this popular procedure “teeth-in-a-day.”
Why Are All On Four Implants So Popular?
Just as in implant-supported bridges and implant-supported crowns, implanted posts mimic how natural teeth hold to the jaw. All On Four insets use titanium posts that the jaw bone then grows around. Your new teeth use the tops of these posts as attachment points to hold them securely in place, preventing slipping and speech interruption.
What Is Getting All On Four Implants Like?
- There’s an evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate for All-On-4.
- We take x-rays and impressions of your mouth.
- We place the four titanium posts into your jawbone.
- We create and place your dentures on these insets.
- The posts begin to heal and grow around your jaw, for a firm, permanent hold.
Dental Implant Aftercare Is Important
Once you get your implant-supported dentures, you will need to care for them to ensure they last as long as possible. Like natural teeth, you must floss and brush them regularly to ensure they stay clean.
Types Of Implant Supported Dentures
Did you know that there is more than one type of implant supports for All On Four dentures? In both cases, your new, natural-looking teeth will be crafted from porcelain or acrylic. The connectors may look a little different depending on which your prosthodontist prefers.
- Ball-Retained Implants – Socket connectors on your new arch of teeth directly connect to an attachment point on each implant. These are also called stud-attached dentures.
- Bar-Retained Implants – A metal bar is anchored to your jaw and connected to the dentures.
The American College of Prosthodontists recommends meeting with your dentist to choose which type of tooth replacement is right for you.
How Long Do All On Four Dental Implants Last?
All On Four is a permanent procedure. If you take care of your fixed dentures and keep up with regular dental appointments, they can last from 25 years to a lifetime.
