Today we want to share some more information about a specific dental implant system call All-on-4 dental implants. This system is great for people who are missing entire arches of teeth.
Get More Stability in Your Teeth
The typical way to replace missing teeth is with dentures. This restoration hasn’t changed much over the years. Dentures function best resting on the gums and rely on fit — or adhesives — to stay in the mouth. The big issue with dentures is that they often slip and slide around in the mouth, especially if you have been without teeth for a long period of time because the jawbone naturally recedes once the teeth are lost. Studies have found that dentures only give you about 25 to 50 percent of the biting force of natural teeth. That means you’ll be missing out on a variety of foods, if you wear dentures.
At North Bay Dental, we can replace large gaps in the smile with implant-supported dentures or All-on-4 dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are just that. We place a few implants around the arch and then retrofit dentures to the implants. You can pop out these implants for easy cleaning.
But some people don’t want teeth that will come out. That’s why many of our patients are finding stability using All-on-4 dental implants. This system is different than your traditional implant-supported dentures. All-on-4 is a procedure we common use whenever someone is losing an entire arch of missing teeth.
Here are a few things you need to know about All-on-4 dental implants:
- It’s called All-on-4 because the we only use four implants around the arch to support new teeth
- The implants merge with the jawbone and literally become part of your body once they have healed
- The implants are placed strategically around the arch to spur jawbone growth
- The implants are restored with bridges
- The upper restoration leaves the upper palate open, allowing you to experience more cold and hot sensations
- Once the teeth are placed into the implants, they can only be removed by a dentist
People who replace their teeth with dental implants enjoy more biting force and never have to worry about their teeth popping out. Because of the implants stop jawbone recession, you’ll also enjoy a more youthful smile.
