Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants offer all the benefits of traditional dental implants with less invasive surgery and can give you a dazzling smile.
Jaw Bone Retention
One of the significant drawbacks of traditional dentures is they don’t stimulate your jawbone. With natural teeth, each tooth is anchored in place with a root, but your roots do more than keep your teeth in place; they take the bite force of chewing and stimulate your jawbone to prevent bone loss. Bone loss occurs similar to muscle loss. If you aren’t using your muscles, they get smaller. It’s the same with your jawbone. Without stimulation, it’ll reduce, and your face may begin to look sunk-in and smooshed.
When you get all-on-4s, the implants stimulate your jawbone. Your facial structure will remain intact and youthful.
Dental implants are long-lasting. There hasn’t been a study long enough to determine the lifespan of a dental implant that failed due to durability. As long as you take care of your gums by brushing and flossing daily, visiting your Anchorage implant dentist as often as recommended, and not smoking cigarettes, your implants can last you a lifetime. There are instances where dental implants fail, but those are few a far between. As long as you meet the candidacy requirements, take care of them, and choose a skilled dentist, you’re golden.
The dentures that sit atop your implants can last 10-15 years before needing replacement. The better you keep your mouth healthy, the longer they’ll last.
All-on-4 dental implants are a fully functional set of teeth. You won’t have the headaches associated with traditional dentures, and you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods, including those that are tough, like biting into an apple, eating steak, and other crunchy foods.
You’ll experience an enhanced appearance with all-on-4s. Since the teeth sitting atop your implants look, feel, and act like natural teeth, you and your friends won’t be able to tell the difference. You’ll smile beautifully all day long.
