Would You Be a Good Candidate for All-on-4 Dentures?
Posted on 1/13/2018 by Marilyn Pierce
Replacing an arch of teeth with an All-on-4 implant is much better than dentures that are extremely painful or those that do not fit well. But to understand your suitability, you need to know if it really suits your needs and whether you qualify for one.
An All-on-4 denture is a new dental treatment process that allows you to have a set of teeth in less time. Dentures are attached and secured on four implants and fixed on a single arch making it snug and fitted. It allows you to sleep with your teeth and wake up with your teeth without the inconveniences of traditional dentures.
Losing Many or All of Your Teeth
The most ideal patient for an All-on-4 denture implant is someone who has suffered from poor oral health and has lost almost all of their teeth. It is a permanent dental solution without going through the discomforts of fitting a traditional denture or the embarrassment of having a loose one.
Considering that a lot of factors affect our teeth, including poor oral health or severe bone loss because of periodontal ailments, having an All-on-4 denture is a good alternative to replace and reconstruct your pearly whites quicker.
If You've Been Living with Dentures for a Long Time
The appearance of All-on-4 implants is what makes it ideal for people who have lived for a long time having traditional dentures. Not only does it look and feel like a real set of teeth, but the denture makes it convenient as you no longer have to remove it from time to time.
Additionally, since your dentures are already rooted to your gums, you do not have to worry about it falling off and causing you embarrassment. It is a cost-effective approach to getting a new set of teeth, providing convenience and having quality results at the same time.
