Before utilizing implants to support prosthetic teeth such as full and partial dentures, patients had limited tooth replacement options that were comfortable and natural looking. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons use the All-on-4 Nobel Biocare system for supporting dentures and restoring oral function.
Due to a natural process called jaw atrophy, long time denture wearers’ mouths would change shape over time as the gums receded and jawbone mass was lost to resorption. This would cause dentures to move when eating and speaking because they no longer fit properly. Because of these physiological changes, patients would have to have their dentures relined, use messy adhesives, or receive new dentures to eat and speak comfortably.
Fortunately, All-on-4 dentures eliminate the need for messy adhesives and diminish the need for multiple sets of dentures over time by anchoring dentures in place with dental implants and promoting jawbone health, so that patients can retain as much bone and gingival tissue as possible.
How All-on-4 Dentures Work
The All-on-4 method works by using a series of small dental implants embedded in strategic locations to anchor and support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth. Four dental implants are surgically placed directly into the upper or lower jawbones. After the procedure, the jawbone will fuse around the titanium implant posts ultimately securing them in place. An arch of dentures is then attached to abutments on the implants. This allows patients to eat and speak comfortably without denture movement. An added benefit to implant supported dentures is that implants act similar to the roots of teeth and help prevent jawbone atrophy.
All-on-4 Cost and Affordability
When compared to the costs associated with relining traditional dentures and the need for receiving new sets of dentures as the mouth changes shape, the All-on-4 method is more cost effective. Furthermore, because dental implants support and promote bone health, patients are less likely to require invasive procedures in the future such as bone and gum grafting treatments.
To learn more about your tooth replacement options, our team welcomes you to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced and caring oral surgeons.
