If you are one of the many adult dental patients suffering from tooth loss, our Saint Louis restorative dentists are here to help you regain a whole, healthy, and attractive smile again. Today we are going to be giving you more information about one option in particular, All-on-Four treatment. We hope that this short article helps you get a better idea of whether or not implant stabilized dentures are right for you!
What is All-on-Four?
All-on-Four treatment combines dentures and dental implant technology to deliver exceptional results. This treatment allows our dental team permanently ground a full prosthetic in a patient’s jawbone using just a few strategically placed dental implant roots. Often, we can even retrofit existing dentures to work with newly implanted titanium roots.
We call it “All-on-Four” because generally a full denture (or ALL of your replacement teeth) can be placed on just FOUR dental implant roots.
Why do people choose All-on-Four?
There are many benefits of All-on Four treatment:
· Your denture stays in place permanently, and is exceptionally stable
· Eat, smile, and speak naturally
· Keeping consuming your favorite foods and drinks
· Easily care for your smile with your normal oral hygiene routine
· Customized aesthetic results
· Dental implant roots help to support your natural jawbone tissue
All-on-Four treatment is less expensive than replacing all of your teeth with individual dental implants. Many patients choose implant stabilized dentures, because they are looking for a permanent solution, but they are not interested in using stand-alone implants.
So, if you are missing many consecutive teeth, All-on-Four treatment may be the perfect tooth replacement option for you. The best way to find out for sure is to schedule a consultation with our Saint Louis dental team. We can give you all of the additional information that you need about tooth replacement options, and help you weigh the pros and cons of each one.
