If you need multiple teeth restored or you are facing widespread dental decay, then dentures might be the solution you’re looking for. Here at Aspen Ridge Dental, we can offer you permanent dentures supported by dental implants thanks to the All-on-4® treatment concept.
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a full set of implant dentures. They replace your entire upper or lower set of teeth in a comfortable and natural looking way.
All-on-4® treatment concept dentures are a modern treatment choice for permanent tooth replacement that is more comfortable than traditional dentures. They are natural looking and will give you full mouth functionality.
How Does the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Work?
The All-on-4® treatment concept has your dentist or dental surgeon attaching four titanium posts into your jawbone. These four titanium posts act as anchors for the whole set of dentures. The permanent dentures, which are a full arch of either your upper or lower teeth, are then attached to those four posts.
Traditional Dentures vs. All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Many patients find that All-on-4® treatment concept denture implants offer more benefits than either traditional dentures or traditional dental implants.
Traditional dentures are often ill-fitting and uncomfortable. Many patients with traditional dentures find that basic activities such as eating and talking are more difficult than they were before dentures. Plus, the risk of these dentures slipping out of place at inopportune moments is much higher than with denture implants.
Single dental implants offer many of the same benefits you get with All-on-4® treatment concept dentures. They are custom-made, comfortable, easy to care for, and natural looking. The difference comes in when it comes to the implant procedure.
Regular dental implant procedures means that each tooth has its own post attached to the jawbone. This results in longer recovery times, and it can take a while to replace multiple teeth using this treatment method.
Benefits of Permanent Dentures
As dental surgery and treatment evolves, we get more and more treatment options when it comes to our smiles and oral health. It’s important to discuss your options with your dentist, since they will know you and understand your unique situation best. Permanent options are just that, permanent, so you will want to consider all treatment plans before making your choice.
While the word permanent can seem scary, permanent dentures have many benefits including:
- Shorter healing times than conventional implants.
- Even distribution of biting force.
- Easy maintenance—you can care for them just like you would your natural teeth.
Permanent dentures are also immensely helpful for maintaining your jawbone health. Without regular tooth roots or implants to replace those roots, the jawbone will shrink away from not being used. The denture implants of the All-on-4® treatment concept will go directly into the jawbone—keeping the jawbone stimulated and strong for a young and healthy facial structure.
Should I Get the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?
If you are receiving restorative dental treatment, All-on-4® treatment concept dentures can be a great choice for a quick makeover. However, they are not the perfect treatment plan for everyone. If you only need to replace one or a few teeth, other options may work better for you.
If you need to replace all of the teeth in either the top or lower half of your mouth, the All-on-4® treatment concept is the most efficient and effective way to do so. With just four strategically placed implants, you can get a full arch of teeth restored in no time!
