Restorative dentistry has many advanced options for restoring complete smiles. Conventional dentures are no longer the only option for restoring a complete smile. All-on-4 dental implants offer the convenience of dentures paired with the stability and function of dental implants. Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces offers All-on-4 dental implant smile restorations at our clinics in San Antonio.
What Are All-on-4 Dentures?
Traditional dentures are held in place by adhesive and are removed for cleaning. While they are functional, the biggest complaint with dentures is that they can slip and move. They may even fall out when eating, talking or laughing. Many people with dentures feel self-conscious, worried that their dentures will not function naturally. All-on-4 combines dentures with dental implants to secure dentures in place.
With All-on-4 dental implants, four dental implants are placed in the jaw, two on the upper jaw and two on the lower jaw. These implants connect to a specialized complete set of dentures. The dentures are held securely in place with no slipping or moving. Patients can eat and talk without worries about their dentures for a more natural, functional smile.
Are You a Good Candidate for All-on-4?
All-on-4 dental implants are more affordable than a complete dental implant mouth restoration. Plus, even those who have some bone loss, common in those with missing teeth, may be good candidates for All-on-4. Patients that have been told they are not good candidates for traditional dental implants may be able to use All-on-4 due to the special implant process.
All-on-4 dental implants are a wonderful restorative solution for those who want alternatives to conventional dentures.
