Permanent. With All-on-4 implants, you replace all of your missing teeth with a permanent prosthodontic device that never has to be removed. Our doctors surgically implant small titanium posts at strategic points along your upper or lower jaw. These implants not only hold your dentures in place, but they also promote healthy new bone tissue growth. This means there is less risk of having the sunken facial features that often plague edentulous people. Your dentures will be outfitted with brackets that snap in to place along the posts.
Decrease in Gum Disease. People with missing teeth are more susceptible to periodontal disease (gum disease), a chronic bacterial infection that can not only be the result of missing teeth, but the cause, as well. Gum disease is a bacterial infection that has been linked to systemic ailments including diabetes, pneumonia, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis. With a permanent tooth replacement like All-on-4, gum disease is less likely to develop because you will need to regularly brush and floss as you would with natural teeth. This oral hygiene goes a long way in avoiding gum disease and maintaining oral health.
Healthier Eating. Edentulous people often suffer from malnutrition because they can’t chew the foods that make up a well-balanced diet. This includes produce such as fresh fruits and vegetables, proteins like meat and beans, and complex carbohydrates such as hearty whole grain breads. All-on-4 restores a patient’s functional bite so they can once again eat all the foods necessary to remain healthy.
