What Are All-on-4 Implant-Supported Dentures?
Dentures that rest on a set of surgically placed implants in the patient’s jawbone are known as Implant-supported dentures.
Each implant in your jawbone has an attachment that can snap into the dentures. These attachments may include sockets or dentures with bars. Easily removable, these dentures can be taken off for cleaning & also during the night while sleeping.
The All-on-4 dental implant technique requires just four implants per arch to secure a set of dentures to give you a solution to the issues created by traditional dental implants.
Positioning implants at a strategic angle with the motive of optimizing bone-to-implant ratio, Dr. Gaurav Sharma at Kirkland Premier Dentistry performs dental implant surgery on candidates who have less jawbone density which is not feasible with traditional implants. With a quicker and more efficient procedure, the experience is relatively more comfortable and delivers excellent results.
Who is the right candidate for All On 4 Dental Implants?
Used to fix dentures on the upper arch, the lower arch, or both arches, depending on the needs of the patient, the All-on-4 implants treatment is considered ideal for both existing denture wearers and also the patients who want the dentures fitted for the first time.
Patients who already wear dentures make especially good candidates for the procedure as unlike traditional dentures, All-on-4 implant-supported dentures do not slip or shift out of place, giving them more comfort.
The treatment restores their ability to chew, speak, and smile with restored comfort and confidence.
To be able to get All-on-4 implant-supported dentures, one should
- be missing most or all of their teeth on one or both arches
- be in good overall health to endure surgery
- be a nonsmoker or avoid smoking while recovering
- have a reasonable jawbone density
What Are The Advantages Of All-on-4 Implant Supported Dentures?
Being anchored to the jawbone instead of resting on implant-supported supported dentures offer you much more stability as compared to traditional dentures, allowing the patients to enjoy their favorite foods. You don’t need to avoid chewy or crunchy foods which are not possible with traditional dentures as there is always a fear of their slipping or sliding around the mouth.
Moreover, the speech can also be impacted by traditional dentures because there is always a chance of their shifting
but dentures with implants allow the patient to speak with greater ease.
Improve Quality Of Life
Having a set of dentures that will fit properly can improve a patient’s quality of life because it boosts the patient’s self-esteem. These dentures allow patients to have smiles that are attractive and comfortable. The dentures also provide a functional smile, allowing patients to eat a wide variety of different types of foods.
Improve Oral Health
Traditional dentures can begin to eventually wear down the gum tissues in a patient’s mouth. Whereas, implant-supported dentures not being supported by the gums, do not wear down parts of the patient’s mouth protecting the overall oral health.
Confident Smile always
All-on-4 dental implants can virtually last a lifetime with adequate oral care and hygiene giving you a confident smile that lasts forever. All-on-4 Implant-supported dentures will not need to be adjusted as often as traditional dentures. Because the jaw will retain its shape, the implant-supported dentures will continue to fit properly.
Without the roots to stimulate the bone of the jaw, the jaw gradually loses its bone density causing your facial structure to collapse. All-On-4 implant-supported dentures can help to improve your face aesthetics to a large extent as implants act as replacement roots for the teeth and help to stimulate and retain the jawbone, preventing your facial structure from collapsing down and giving a hollow look.
Dentures without implants can make you lose bone much faster whereas dental implants help you retain this bone & your youthful appearance giving you fewer wrinkles and a dashing smile.
All-On-4 procedure requires only four dental implants to support the dentures, so it’s generally less expensive than the other implant denture options that require six to eight dental implants per arch to support the replacement teeth. All-On-4 is likely the most cost-effective implant denture option available.
All-On-4 implants offer immediate results. Most of the dental implant options require a bone graft followed by a healing time before you can get the implant surgery, lengthening the process by months. However, the All-On-4 implant is designed to put an end to the need for a bone graft in most patients. Placed at a strategic angle, these implants can support your replacement teeth with relatively less jawbone. Temporary dentures are provided after the implant surgery until you heal and your permanent restorations are ready.
A single appointment can give you a brand-new smile and a comfortable, secure fit.
Implant-supported dentures are an effective way to replace your missing teeth and restore both your smile and confidence. Implants not only help you maintain your bone density but also help to keep your dentures stable.
These dentures do not need to be adjusted often and thus can save you much time in the long run. Dr. Gaurav Sharma has been helping many patients smile with ease and confidence with All-in-4 implant-supported dentures.
