Dental implants are highly recommended by dentists for people who have one or a few missing teeth, but what if you have lost many teeth or even have a full arch of missing teeth? Fortunately, you can still experience the benefits of dental implants without worrying about the cost of replacing all of your teeth with individual implants. All-On-4 dental implants provide the affordability of dentures with the longevity of dental implants. Here are three ways you can benefit from this innovative tooth replacement system:
As mentioned already, All-On-4 dental implants are an affordable way to replace all or most of your teeth. They only require four dental implant posts to be placed in your jaw. Once this is done, a natural-looking prosthesis is attached to the top. Replacing your teeth in this manner is more affordable than replacing all your teeth with individual implants.
The All-On-4 system offers more stability than traditional dentures because the prosthesis is firmly attached to implants in the jaw. You can choose between bar-retained and ball-retained implant-supported dentures, but both options provide more security than standard dentures and keep your new teeth from moving around in your mouth.
- No Bone Graft Required
Sometimes, bone grafts are required before standard single implants can be placed in the jaw. With All-On-4 dental implants, bone grafting is rarely required. This is because the implants are placed at a strategic angle in places where bone density is most healthy. Treatment requires just one surgery and provides you with a full set of new teeth in just one day.
