More and more adults are turning to Dental Implants to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures or partials that can slip or rub, implants are held by the jaw bone, just as natural teeth. This restores chewing stability and speaking dependability that is most like the teeth you once had.
However, for individuals who have been long-time denture or partial denture wearers, traditional Dental Implants may require additional treatment steps. Without the presence of natural tooth roots in the bone, the foundation that supports a denture or partial will begin to shrink over time. This is what contributes to movement when eating or speaking.
When bone loss has occurred to the extent that makes implant placement risky, the bone must first be rebuilt. This can be done with a bone graft or bone rebuilding materials. While either process is a dependable way to restore bone mass, they add to treatment expense and time.
Although treatment costs for traditional implants is less with types that have removable teeth, many people are not thrilled to continue the same process for cleaning teeth or sleeping that they’ve practiced with dentures or partials. They want teeth that do not come out. The added cost for non-removable implant systems has been a deterrent to some.
The All-On-4 Dental Implant systems solves these problems for denture wearers. For people who have experienced even severe bone loss, All-On-4 implants are placed at unique angles that do not require as much bone mass for support. Additionally, costs are less since only 4 implants are needed to support a full arch of upper or lower teeth.
