Your search for new teeth is a personal and important journey that will impact your life and your finances indefinitely. If you are among the many adults who have experienced total tooth loss, or if years of dental problems have left you contemplating dentures, choosing new teeth that offer stability and peace of mind can provide you with a fantastic new outlook on life.
A growing number of adults are learning that the All-on-4 procedure eliminates virtually all of the shortcomings of the traditional denture. As an alternative to the traditional denture that is supported only by a metal or acrylic plate, the foundation for the All-on-4 procedure is the same as the foundation for a natural smile – the jaw bone.
In the upper or lower jaw, where all of the natural teeth have been lost, a set of four titanium implant posts can be surgically placed in order to create a stable platform for a whole new set of teeth. The prosthetic teeth are customized for an appealing look and then they are permanently connected to the implants. Now, rather than a bulky denture plate that slips and slides, it is possible to enjoy high-performance teeth that won’t leave you feeling inconvenienced or uncomfortable.
This low-maintenance denture solution is also highly touted because it can be trusted to look and feel great without a lot of fuss. From the moment that you jump out of bed in the morning to your late-night refrigerator raid, you won’t waste a single moment looking for your teeth. Nor will you find yourself clipping coupons for denture glue after only a few months or years. Whereas the jawbone can be expected to deteriorate due to life with conventional dentures, the implants will provide enough continuous stimulation to preserve a healthy bone volume.
The presence of the dental implants can slow the rapid aging that occurs when the natural teeth are missing. You’ll experience a sense of security, confidence, and peace when your artificial teeth are anchored to the foundation that once supported your real teeth. After a short period of time, the dental implants and teeth attached to them will start to feel like your own natural teeth.
