Traditional dentures restore your smile and so much more when all your teeth are missing on either or both your upper and lower arches. With dentures, you have the ability to eat all types of food once again, so your body receives the optimal levels of nutrition. Not only that, dentures remove that aged look from your face, as cheek and lip muscles are supported and no longer have that sunken look. However, All-on-Four dentures provide even more advantages over traditional removable dentures.
Despite all the positives of traditional dentures, there are disadvantages. They may need frequent adjustments and relining every year or two. Food debris and tiny seeds can get caught underneath removable dentures, causing pain and discomfort. In public, it can be embarrassing when you need to excuse yourself so you can remove your dentures and clear away the food or seeds. If your dentures are not fitting tight enough, they may clack when you speak, or worse, slip or fall out. All-on-Four dentures do not have these issues.
Supported by dental implants, All-on-Four dental implant dentures are superior to traditional dentures in fit, security and aesthetics. You can say goodbye to dental adhesives, slippage and those embarrassing moments common to removable dentures.
Why Choose All-on-4 Implants?
Dental implants are quickly becoming the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. The cost of replacing each missing tooth on an arch that has no teeth can be remarkably high. All-on-4 dental implants use only four implants to support a full denture. This is not only cost-effective, but it is also a means to have fully-functioning teeth in a short amount of time.
All-on-4 dental implants improve your smile. They allow you to eat all your favorite foods without the worry of dislodging your dentures or having the annoyance of bits of food or tiny seeds getting underneath and causing discomfort. They are also easier to maintain than traditional dentures.
At Family Smiles Dental, after you receive the dental implants, we can create an All-on-4 denture which you will be proud to show off with your smile. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment to learn more about this method of replacing missing teeth.
