All-On-4 Implant Dentures is one of these technological advancements. These modern marvels let you replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 dental implants, and the procedure can be completed in just one day. This fairly new approach to replacing an entire arch of teeth is growing in popularity because it let’s you replace teeth without a bone graft, gives attractive results, and can be less costly than regular dental implants.
The procedure works by supporting a full arch of teeth using only four implants placed where the body naturally retains more jawbone, providing a firm foundation for the implant dentures. If you’re unfamiliar with dental implants, here are the basics: dental implants are a titanium implant (or other metal) that is surgically inserted into the jawbone and functions like a natural tooth root. After insertion, the bone and muscle tissue fuse with the implant in a process known as osseointegration. The bond created through this process is incredibly reliable, which is one of the reasons dental implants carry a 98 percent success rate.
After these implants have been successfully inserted into the jaw, your custom-crafted dentures made from material that is both aesthetically pleasing and durable is attached to the implants, giving you a semi-permanent set of dentures that require no special cleaning. To maintain your new set of teeth, simple practice your normal oral hygiene routines: brushing and flossing twice a day, and keeping up with your regularly scheduled check-ups every six months.
All-on-4 implant dentures are appropriate for people who have never had dentures as well as for replacing traditional dentures.
