When you suffer from advanced tooth loss, then your jaw could lose stability and structure, leading to an aged appearance. But losing structure could limit your ability to receive dental implants. However, our team can provide a full smile with our All-On-Four dental implant dentures. In today’s blog, we’re discussing the benefits of these fixed and lifelike dentures.
What Happens Following Advanced Tooth Loss?
When you lose a majority of your teeth, this could lead to major issues in your daily life. For example, you could be limited in the types of foods you can eat, which impacts your overall nutritional intake. These gaps could alter your speech and even cause you to feel embarrassed in social situations. More than that, the body will take note of the sudden loss of your roots, and in response will stop sending doses of calcium and phosphates to them. The jawbone loses mass and density, breaking down to cause further tooth loss and a prematurely aged appearance! But even if you lose mass and density in the jaw, we could still offer a complete smile again with All-On-Four dental implant dentures.
Typically, when you lose mass and density in the jaw, this means there isn’t enough structure to support between six and eight dental implant posts per arch. If you want to obtain durable and long-lasting fixed dentures, this means you first need to undergo grafting or sinus lift procedures to ensure there is enough structure to support these posts. But with All-On-Four, we can use only four small and specially placed posts to not only support prosthetics, but stimulate the growth of jaw structure to prevent negative changes to facial structure, and avoid the need for grafting or sinus lifts!
The Benefits of All-On-Four
Our team will use digital technology to plan the placement of the four posts in each arch. We will extract the last few teeth and then insert these posts. We attach abutments to them and in the same visit, connect a custom set of prosthetics. You now have lifelike and durable tooth replacement in one visit, leaving with a complete smile. They look great, last for years to come, and allow you to eat your favorite food again. If you have any questions about how we support a complete set of dentures with All-On-Four implant dentures, then contact our team today to learn more.
