Full dental implants offer a safe, natural-looking alternative to tooth replacement. As we age, our teeth experience daily wear and tear, causing them to eventually chip or fall out. And depending on the severity of your situation, your dental care team may suggest the use of All -On-Four® dental implants if all or the majority of your teeth are missing.
What are All-On-Four Dental Implants?
Full arch implants, often referred to as All-On-Four, offer a light-weight, full mouth implant solution that stays in place like normal teeth. Using a non-removable dental implant bridge, All-On-Four can replace an entire row of teeth with the support of four implants. Depending on your unique situation, however, your dentist may recommend 5 or 6 implants to help support each dental arch for long-term success.
Implant restorations like All-On-Four are fixed in place, not loose like dentures, enabling you to smile, chew, and talk more naturally. And unlike traditional dentures, implants will also help preserve your jawline and resist bone shrinkage, which can cause you to look older and make eating and speaking more difficult.
