Having missing teeth can be extremely frustrating. Missing teeth can cause all kinds of issues—from the functionality of your bite to problems with your oral health. Having an entire row of missing teeth is that much more difficult. If you have recently had your teeth removed, they’ve been knocked out, or you would simply like to upgrade from traditional dentures, you may be wondering what teeth replacement options are available. There are actually a few to choose from—one of which being all-on-4. All-on-4 are quite popular due to their strength, longevity, and appearance. But what are All-on-4? What are their benefits? And are they right for you? Below is more information about all-on-4 implants. If you have any additional questions or would like to book an appointment for a consultation, reach out to My Pompano Dentist. We’d be happy to discuss all-on-4 implants with you and see if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
All-on-4 implants provide a combination of two types of replacements—dentures and dental implants. These replacements are fixed permanently in your mouth, allowing you to speak, eat, and smile with ease. They are also very comfortable and are much more comfortable than traditional dentures.
In order for a dentist to place all-on-4 implants, titanium rods are installed in the jawbone of the patient. The implants are then allowed to fuse with the bone. Once this process is complete, artificial teeth are attached via abutments.
All all-on-4 implant prosthetics are customized for the specific patient. We make sure they match your existing teeth and perfectly fit in your mouth. Our goal is to provide you with a perfect smile.
If you would like to learn more about all-on-4 implants, reach out with any questions. We’ll happily answer them for you.
There are many great benefits to all-on-4 dental implants that make them a wonderful replacement option. Some of the key benefits of all-on-4 implants include:
⋅ Natural-looking teeth
⋅ Easier speech
⋅ Greater bite and chew force
⋅ No moving parts
⋅ A slim shape
⋅ No adhesives or pastes
All-on-4 implants aren’t bulky and don’t stick out at all. They are designed to follow the curve of your mouth perfectly. Once you’ve had your all-on-4 implants installed, you’ll be able to bite and chew your favorite foods with ease. These prosthetics don’t slip around.
You are sure to love your all-on-4 dental implants.
All-on-4 implants are a great replacement option for many patients, but they aren’t the right choice for all patients. You’ll want to consider not only all-on-4 implants when you are looking for full-row teeth replacement prosthetics but also other options as well.
One option you may want to consider is snap-in dentures. These are another form of-implant dentures that aren’t permanently secured in place. They are easy to remove for cleaning and they can be taken out easily at night. The main disadvantage is they don’t provide the same security as all-on-4 implants.
If implant-supported dentures aren’t available for you, you’ll need to consider traditional dentures. While they aren’t as secure, they still provide you with a complete smile and added bite strength.
It’s important to keep in mind that your dentist will only replace a full row of teeth if it is a last resort. Dentists prefer to keep as many of the natural teeth of a patient as possible. If you are missing a few teeth, they may prefer a bridge or individual implants instead of dentures. If these options are not available, your dentist may decide to remove any remaining teeth and place dentures.
All-on-4 are a fantastic option for many patients and offer a lot of advantages. With that said, all-on-4 are not available for all patients. There are a few reasons for this.
One reason a patient may not be a candidate for all-on-4 is cost. These are generally the most expensive dentures option. Insurance may cover a portion of these replacements but that is not guaranteed.
Another reason why a patient may not be a candidate for all-on-4 implants is the integrity of their jawbone. In order for the metal rods to be held in place, the jawbone needs to be secure. If it has deteriorated over time (which is sometimes the case), it will not be able to fuse with the implants. With that said, you may be a candidate for a bone graft. This procedure is generally effective and will allow for the placement of dental implants.
Finally, your dentist will opt to not place all-on-4 implants if you don’t need your full row of teeth replaced. Instead, they will consider partial replacement options, like a dental bridge or individual implants.
