4 Benefits of All-on-4 Implants

4 Benefits of All-on-4 Implants

For a long time, options for restoring missing teeth were limited. Your choices were to live without it or get a custom denture or bridge made. With the advent of dental implants, you now have more options. 

 

Dental implants are the strongest and most secure way to replace natural teeth, a process that involves embedding an artificial tooth root directly into the jawbone rather than using a replacement system that sits over the gum and jaw.

 

The dental team at Brooklyn City Dental, in Brooklyn, New York offers a game-changing procedure called All-on-4® implants, which are a great substitute for dentures. Let’s take a look at the top four advantages. 

 

1. All-on-4 implants are highly effective

With All-on-4, four implant posts are surgically placed to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth, or crowns. They're fixed to the implants permanently, giving you beautiful, functional and natural-looking teeth.

You can benefit from dental implants without the time involved in replacing each tooth with an implant by using only four implants per upper or lower arch. 

2. Protects jawbone health

Natural teeth are made up of more than just the visible portion. Every time you bite down, the roots of your teeth perform a crucial function beneath your gums. Your jawbone is stimulated by the tooth roots, and this stimulation keeps your bones' blood and nutrients flowing.

Your jawbone may suffer if you lose just one tooth. Your jawbone's health is seriously compromised if all of your teeth are missing. Dentures can enhance your ability to chew and speak, and they can look great, but they don't do anything to maintain the health of your jawbone.

Dental implants are posts made of titanium that are surgically inserted into your jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root. The post fuses to your jawbone and serves the same function as a natural tooth, stimulating and maintaining the health of your bone.

3. Results that last

All-on-4 implants are long-lasting. Dentures of today last longer than those of the past, but they still don't last as long as an implant that has been properly taken care of.

Unlike dentures, which must be taken off to be cleaned. You take care of your All-on-4 implants the same way you would your natural teeth by brushing, flossing, and scheduling routine dental checkups and cleanings. Your implants should last a very long time with that easy maintenance, and unlike dentures, they don't need to be adjusted.

4. Enjoy a natural look and feel

As you might expect given how closely they resemble your natural teeth, All-on-4 implants look very natural. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth because they are permanently affixed, so you won't have to worry about them slipping while you eat or speak.
