Not so long ago, dentures and bridges were the only teeth replacement options out there. However, they only replaced the visible portion of the missing tooth instead of replacing the entire tooth with the roots. However, while dentures are made to look like natural teeth, they can hinder normal oral function if they are not fitted properly, or if they fall away. Also, since dentures have to be removed for cleaning and sleeping, they are not as stable as you want them to be.
Dental implants, on the other hand, replace even the roots of the tooth. These are small titanium posts that are embedded into the jawbone to provide an anchor for dentures of bridges. The titanium post will stimulate jawbone growth like a natural tooth, and will completely bond with the bone in a couple of weeks.
The All of 4 teeth replacement technique uses 4 strategically placed dental implants to support the replaced teeth. Since only 4 implants are used, All on 4 becomes a cost-effective procedure. The greatest benefit of All on 4 implants is that they look and function like your natural teeth to the point where you (and the people you meet) will hardly notice any difference between the implants and intact teeth in your mouth.
Your chewing and tasting abilities will be restored, and there will never be chance of the implants slipping out, which is always a risk with dentures. Most importantly, you will be able to talk and smile in front of everyone with complete confidence because no one will notice that you are wearing dentures. In fact, All on 4 implants even retain the shape of your jaw line so that there is no visible change on your after the procedure.
