As far as teeth replacement options are concerned, dental implants provide more stability and durability than dentures and bridges. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are fixed into the jaw, which provide a base for dentures or prosthetic teeth to be fixed later on. The thing about titanium posts is that they stimulate the growth of the jawbone like a natural tooth. In other words, a dental implant replaces the tooth root as well, whereas dentures only replace the visible portion of the tooth.
Due to this reason, dentures can slip and move, and they hinder your everyday activities, especially eating. So while today’s dentures are easy to maintain and resemble natural teeth, they cannot match the stability of dental implants.
The All on 4 uses dental implants to support replacement 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 if you had natural teeth.
Natural abilities of chewing and tasting will be restored, and there will never be chance of the implants falling out or slipping, which is always a risk with dentures. Most importantly, patients will be able to talk and smile in front of everyone with complete confidence because no one will notice that they are wearing teeth replacements. In fact, All on 4 implants even retain the shape of your jaw line by retaining bone that would naturally recede when wearing dentures.
