All-on-4 implants are prosthetic teeth replacement solutions. They are used to restore multiple missing teeth, such as in the case of dentures, but are secured firmly in place with the help of dental implants. In recent years, all-on-4 implants are gaining popularity, owing to several exclusive features and benefits that they offer. Here are some of the amazing benefits that make them highly sought-after:
For many years, the only dental solution for replacing multiple missing teeth was dentures. They are made from dental-grade ceramic and acrylic. Though they offer great aesthetics, they do have a few drawbacks, such as less stability, less durability, and the risk of slipping off from the mouth while talking or laughing. But, all-on-4 implants address all these drawbacks, making them the go-to solution to replace a large number of missing teeth.
Dental implants are placed in the jawbone and fixed firmly with the help of dental adhesives. Over time, the bone gradually fuses with the metal implant stud and offers excellent stability. When the prosthetic teeth are mounted on the implants, they remain fixed in one place without getting dislodged or slipping off from their positions. Patients who get all-on-4 implants can bite and chew food without being too conscious of the prostheses getting dislodged.
When the natural teeth are extracted from the mouth, a small amount of jawbone may be extracted along with them. Also, the missing teeth leave a gap in the jawbone, causing it to shrink or deteriorate over time. But, placing dental implants in the jawbone helps to hold it intact and prevent bone deterioration. The screw-like grooves on its surface help to keep it firmly fixed to the bone.
Patients who visit our dental practice with multiple missing teeth often feel uncomfortable or too conscious of their facial appearance when they smile. Over time, this could lead to a lack of confidence, which may not enable them to enjoy socializing with people. But, once they get all-on-4 implants, they have an entire smile transformation. Their cheeks and chin start to appear fuller; they tend to look younger and would be able to smile confidently again.
All-on-4 implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth. They would not require regular modifications, such as in the case of prosthetic dentures, as they are made from durable and long-lasting materials. They would remain in your mouth just like real teeth, which means you need not have to take them off when you go to bed or clean them. In a nutshell, they offer better comfort and convenience to the patient.
