Full-Arch Dentures on Only 4 Implants
One of the most important benefits of dental implants is that they stimulate your jaw when you bite and chew, which promotes a healthier flow of minerals and nutrients. However, if it’s been a while since you’ve lost teeth, or if you’ve lost all of the teeth on one of your dental ridges, then your jawbone may have a chance to lose some of its mass and density. This can affect its ability to receive a full row of implant posts. Yet, with All-On-4® implant dentures, we can design a complete, full-arch denture and support it on only four dental implant posts.
How Do All-On-4® Implant Dentures Work?
All-On-4® implant dentures are designed to help more people enjoy the benefits of dental implants without needing extensive prerequisite work, such as jawbone grafting, beforehand. By strategically planning and placing each implant post to absorb a maximum amount of your bite pressure, we can ensure more than adequate support for your custom denture. By limiting the number of implant posts needed to only four, we can also minimize the amount of surgery you need to receive your new prosthesis, and the amount of healthy jawbone structure you need to support them.
What Are the Benefits of All-On-4® Implants?
Because All-On-4® implant dentures only require four implant posts, the length and extent of your placement procedure will also be limited. The ability to minimize this process helps more patients avoid the need for jawbone grafting to fortify their jawbones before implant placement. With your All-On-4® dentures in place, your implant posts will also help support, preserve, and strengthen your jawbone thanks to their stimulation every time you bite and chew.
