If you’re interested in a total smile restoration, All-On-4 dental implants are a fantastic solution.
Experiencing tooth loss is a very common problem faced by adults over the age of 35. Statistics show that the average American will be missing 12 teeth, wisdom teeth included, by the time they are 50.
If you’re looking for a solution to your tooth loss or issues with your traditional dentures, consider All-On-4 dental implants. All-On-4 dental implants are a procedure utilizing only four dental implant posts and a set of natural-looking, replacement teeth for a full-mouth smile restoration.
Check out these 10 benefits you’ll experience with All-On-4 dental implants.
1. You can walk out of your appointment with your new smile on the very same day.
The procedure for placing All-On-4 dental implants is surprisingly quick since only four dental implant posts need to be placed. The average patient who is otherwise healthy with sufficient bone structure can have the process completed in a single appointment, allowing them to walk out of the office with their beautiful new smile on the same day.
2. Dental implant posts support your jaw structure, preventing future bone loss and facial sagging.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevent bone loss from occurring. Since the implant post is placed within the jaw bone, you won’t experience the bone resorption and subsequent facial sagging that is so common with untreated tooth loss, traditional dentures, and dental bridges.
3. Taking care of your All-On-4 smile is no different than caring for your natural teeth.
All-On-4 dental implants don’t require special care or products. You will simply care for your new smile as you would your natural teeth, with twice-daily brushing, flossing, and if you choose, a mouth rinse. Even if your All-on-4 dental implants have completely replaced all of your natural teeth, you will still need to care for them in the same way.
4. Your diet will improve as you can return to enjoying all of the same foods you used to love.
After the initial recovery period of a few months, you’ll be able to return to your normal diet. This includes biting into fruit, eating crunchy foods, and no longer needing to worry about pain, denture slipping, or the inability to properly chew. You’ll have about 70% of a natural bite force back so we do advise care when biting into anything very hard or very sticky.
5. The placement technique used for All-On-4 dental implants minimizes the need for bone grafts.
All-On-4 dental implant posts don’t necessarily need to be placed in the same spot as a standard single-tooth dental implant. This makes it possible for your dentist to place your All-On-4 posts in a way that negates the need for a bone graft if bone loss has occurred. If you were previously told you are not a candidate for traditional dental implants, Dr. Bentz may find that you are a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants.
6. Permanently fixing problems with your teeth and gums will also help improve your overall health.
Your oral health and your overall health have a strong connection. Inflammation from problematic teeth, gum disease, or even poorly fitting traditional dentures increase inflammation throughout your body. This increases your risks of heart disease, diabetes, and other serious health conditions. All-On-4 dental implants solve these issues and help you protect your health.
7. You won’t need to deal with any readjusting, removing and replacing, or messy denture adhesives anymore.
Traditional dentures might be an “easy” solution, but many patients find that wearing them is far from easy. All-On-4 smiles are a truly easy option as you won’t need to use adhesives or deal with readjusting or taking your false teeth in and out.
8. All-On-4 dental implants allow you to speak with others without fear of your dentures slipping.
Traditional dentures are prone to slipping, making it hard to speak, and you may have the constant worry of them falling out when you’re chatting with someone. All-On-4 dental implants give you the confidence of being able to speak and eat with others without any concerns about your smile. Additionally, after a quick period of getting used to how your new All-On-4 smile feels, your natural speech won’t be affected as it could be with traditional dentures.
9. You can regain confidence in yourself knowing that your smile looks beautiful, natural, and healthy.
The days of feeling self-conscious over your smile will be gone after getting All-On-4 dental implants. Dr. Bentz will work with you to design a new smile that looks incredibly natural and beautiful. You can customize how your new smile will look, including how bright or white you might want your teeth or the shape of your teeth.
10. You’ll experience a faster recovery time and a higher success rate compared to similar options.
Recovering from All-On-4 dental implants is easier and faster compared to the alternative of getting multiple traditional implants. The fewer implants you have, the less overall swelling and discomfort you’ll experience. Fewer implants also mean a high overall success rate for your new smile. The success rate of an All-On-4 smile is an impressive 93%.
