Have you wished for an alternative to traditional dentures? Let someone from Texas Dental Resources talk to you about All-on-4s. Traditional dentures may fit just fine when you first get them, but over time the ridges on your gums can become worn by friction, resulting in dentures that don’t fit properly anymore. This won’t happen with All-on-4s because they’re held in place by four small dental implants.
The Difference between Dental Implants and All-on-4 Dental Implants
While dental implants can be used to replace everything from a single tooth to a full arch, All-on-4 implants are used to anchor just a full arch. What’s more, because two of the All-on-4 implants are placed at an angle, not as much bone is required for the procedure. As a result, patients who aren’t able to receive a normal implant may be able to receive treatment with All-on-4 implants.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Both All-on-4 implants and traditional implants produce results that look and feel more natural. That’s because your implants will act like prosthetic roots. Besides stabilizing your denture, they’ll nourish and strengthen your jaw over time. And because you can expect more solid results with dental implants, you can also enjoy a more balanced and nutritious diet.
