Because of the way that All-on-4 implant denture is engineered, it can support itself with less bone, which means that most people don’t need a bone graft to get the procedure.
The implant dentures are also designed to be highly attractive. They’ll look natural, too. The All-on-4 implant system has been widely tested, and we know that it gives long-lasting results.
But, despite all these other benefits, All-on-4 can be less expensive than other full-arch replacement strategies for implant dentures. That’s because it uses fewer implants than other treatments.
How All-on-4 Implant Dentures Work
All-on-4 implant dentures are based on a careful study of the jawbone anatomy and the pressures that chewing puts on dentures. This study revealed that a full denture could be supported with just four implants if those implants were placed in the areas where the body naturally retains more jawbone. In addition, the implants in the rear of the mouth are angled so they have contact with the most bone possible. This provides a firm foundation for the implant dentures.
The denture also helps balance forces on the implant so that none of them get too much force to heal. That’s why the denture can be placed right away so you can enjoy teeth in one day from Dr. Appolon at her Midtown Manhattan dental office.
Your initial denture will be temporary which will be replaced when your implants are healed, and we can decide what is the best implant denture for you.
