| The All-on-4 implants are an attractive solution for patients who are ready to ditch their removable dentures, and people with failing teeth also look toward this treatment option, as well.
This procedure only uses four dental implants in each jaw in order to support a full set of replacement teeth. If you are considering All-on-4 implants, there are a variety of benefits that you should know about this treatment method.
Unlike traditional dental implants in which you'll need two separate procedures - one to place the implant and another to place the crown - you'll have everything completed in the same appointment with All-on-4 implants. This can help you to get the fastest improvement in your comfort, tooth stability, and chewing ability.
Fewer Lifestyle ChangesAll-on-4 implants allow you to live your life how you want to, and you won't need to make the lifestyle changes that are often required of you when you have traditional braces. Since your All-on-4 implants are anchored into the jawbone, you'll be able to eat what you want without worry that your teeth will slip or move. You can also avoid the messy adhesives and pastes that denture wearers use to keep their appliance in place, saving you time, money, and a major hassle.
This procedure will help to preserve your jawbone, and it can prevent facial structure deterioration that often occurs when the teeth are missing. By pursuing All-on-4 implants, you won't need to worry about wrinkles or puckering of the face that often occurs with jawbone loss.
Health BenefitsMissing teeth can be connected to health issues, both with your mouth and your overall health. Periodontal or gum disease has been linked to strokes, diabetes, heart attacks, and other chronic diseases. Since your mouth will be restored, dental implants can actually help to fend off future gum disease.
