Many patients have difficulty with ill-fitting dentures, making eating and speaking embarrassing and awkward. A full mouth of dental implants is cost-prohibitive for some patients while others want to avoid extensive surgeries.
All-on-4 uses four strategically placed dental implant screws to secure a full arch of teeth in place. In addition to being more secure, All-on-4 dentures have an overall smaller profile, making speaking easier and allowing for the full flavour of foods whilst eating.
The Modern Alternative to Dentures
The All-on-4 advanced dental solution is the modern alternative to dentures using four dental implants to support a full arch of teeth. In most All-on-4 cases, patients can enjoy the convenience of a full set of attractive, natural looking teeth in as little as one to three days.
The All-on-4 concept is a common procedure for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth or for those who do not fit the criteria for traditional implants or bone grafting.
The loss of teeth and the hassle of dentures can have a considerable impact on everyday lives. Thankfully modern dentistry has come a long way over time and offers a variety of solutions to replace and restore teeth enabling us to eat the foods we love and smile with confidence again
The Benefits of the All-on-4
The benefits associated with the All-on-4 include:
- Fully functional teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth
- Immediate replacement of teeth, often in one to three days
- Easy cleaning and maintenance
- Fewer individual dental implants are required
- The technique can be used for both the upper and lower jaw
- Natural-looking gums and lips
- High success rates
Perhaps the most notable benefit of All-on-4 implant-retained dentures is that patients can enjoy more active lives, partaking in sport and social activities that they avoided in the past because of ill-fitting dentures that made it difficult to breathe, speak or chew effectively. All-on-4 dentures can improve patients’ quality of life.
