As we age, it isn’t uncommon to lose teeth, either to decay or accidents.
In the U.S., more than 35 million adults are missing all of their upper
or lower teeth. Dentures are one common solution to this problem, but
they often are uncomfortable and difficult to wear. All-on-4 dental implants
may be a better dental restoration for many denture wearers. Learn more
about this revolutionary implant system.
All-On-4 Implants vs. Traditional Implants
A dental implant works much the same, whether it is a traditional implant
or an all-on-4 implant. A titanium screw is placed into the jaw, replacing
the root of a tooth. A realistic and functional crown is attached to the
screw, providing you with a prosthetic tooth. With traditional dental
implants, each tooth requires a screw to be placed. However, it is possible
that 4 carefully placed screws can give you a full arch of beautiful teeth.
The all-on-4 implant is just this—4 implants to hold an entire arch
of teeth in place. The procedure can be used for both upper and lower
teeth. Titanium is a unique metal and is perfectly suited to dental implant
uses, since it can fuse to living bone. These implants will become a part
of your natural jaw, providing a solid foundation for your new teeth.
Titanium can also prevent future bone loss in the jaw, maintaining a more
youthful facial structure.
All-on-4 implants can help you have a healthier mouth, which can be life-changing.

you may be eligible for the transformative procedure.
The Benefits of an All-On-4 Dental Implant
There are a number of benefits to choosing an all-on-4 implant over a series
of traditional implants or dentures. Replacing missing teeth with a permanent,
full-arch implant can help you live your life more comfortably, but that
isn’t the only reason. Here are some of the reasons to consider
an all-on-4 implant.
Why spend one more day coping with the hassle of dentures? In as little
as a single day, you can replace your dentures with a permanent, implant
supported bridge using an all-on-4 dental implant.
Improve Your Appearance
Your smile is often the first thing people notice, so it is important that
yours looks its very best. The all-on-4 implant can help to preserve your
jawbone and prevent deterioration of your facial structure that can occur
when teeth are missing. In addition to protecting the health of your jaw,
these implants can also smooth out wrinkles that happen due to missing
teeth and help you appear younger. Finally, your new implants can give
your teeth a far more youthful appearance and take years off your smile.
Never Worry About Eating Again
With an all-on-4 dental implant, you never have to worry about where, when,
and what you’ll eat. You can enjoy your favorite foods, and never
have to deal with the hassle of cleaning dentures again.
Enjoy a Long-Lasting Smile
Unlike dentures, your all-on-4 dental implants are a permanent set of teeth,
supported by a non-removable implant. You will never need to take out
your teeth again, and your implant is designed to last a lifetime.
Enhance Your Quality of Life
All-on-4 teeth look and function like your natural teeth, so you will gain
the confidence to speak, smile, and eat when you choose. These implants
are also far more comfortable than dentures, since they fit like your
natural teeth would, and will never slip. Enjoy feeling better, looking
better, and having a renewed outlook on your life.
Eliminate the Health Issues of Missing Teeth
All-on-4 implants can reduce the chances of periodontal disease, which
leads to a healthier mouth and body. Periodontal disease has been linked
to strokes, heart attacks, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and a
number of chronic illnesses. With routine, but easy, dental care, you
can enjoy a healthier mouth and a decreased risk of illness.
