The Benefits Of All-On-4 Denture Implants

The Benefits Of All-On-4 Denture Implants

All-on-4 denture implants refer to a type of denture that is permanently secured. These permanent dentures look and feel like natural teeth and they are ideal for people who are missing all of their teeth on either the upper or lower jaw or both. These denture implants provide a permanent denture solution for people who want a denture that does not move or need any messy adhesive while preserving jawbone strength and oral health. Although denture implants involve several steps for implantation and need some time to heal before they are fully functional, once the dentures are in place and healed, they are very low-maintenance and stable while providing a beautiful smile.

Reasons People Get All-On-4 Denture Implants

Bone Retention
When you no longer have your natural teeth, jawbone resorption can occur. When the roots of your teeth are no longer in the jaw to stimulate the jawbone while chewing, the jawbone can begin to shrink. This can cause the cheeks to look hollow and the jaw to become weakened. While there are some ways to help prevent jawbone loss, the best way to prevent resorption when there are no natural teeth left is to get all-on-4 denture implants. Although these implants won’t have as many points of contact with the jaw as a full set of natural teeth, the implants will be evenly spaced throughout the jaw bone and will help to stimulate the jaw to avoid resorption. While some people prefer denture implants for retaining the structural integrity, size, and shape of their jawbone for health purposes, other people choose denture implants because these benefits help to maintain the natural face shape for aesthetic purposes, helping you look youthful for longer.

Because all-on-4 denture implants are permanently fused to the jaw, they are very stable. Denture implants do not move around, they don’t require additional denture adhesives, and they do not come out or become uncomfortable when eating certain foods. Denture implants are the most stable form of dentures and they can give you the freedom to eat, speak, and smile without fear of movement.

Easy Care
Unlike complete dentures, denture implants are permanently attached. This makes all-on-4 denture implants very convenient for wearers. This form of denture needs to be cared for similarly to how regular teeth are cared for.  Standard complete dentures require specific denture care, including removal of the dentures for regular rinsing and washing. Denture implants are simpler to care for at home than other forms of dentures. These all-on-4 denture implants also do not require denture relines the way complete dentures do. People with denture implants tend to have less gum recession and less jawbone resorption, and by limiting these two factors, dentures fit better and don’t need adjustments. Denture implants also do not need denture rebases, as they do not have a base the way complete dentures do.
