If you are missing full sets of your upper and/or lower teeth, you can eliminate the need for traditional dentures with a much stronger and more stable treatment known as the All-on-4 anchored denture procedure.
The All-on-Four technique is designed to reduce the need for messy dental adhesives and stop dentures from moving or slipping along the gum-line. It can result in new sets of artificial teeth that are as close to permanent as possible, restoring both form and function with exceptional results.
You will not need to remove them for cleaning, and you will be able to eat the foods you enjoy.
How Does All-on-Four Work?
The All-on-Four anchored denture procedure uses four dental implants placed in the upper or lower gums. The titanium implants are anchored to the bone, and will eventually fuse to the bone itself through a process called osseointegration, where they will ultimately become a permanent part of your mouth like natural teeth roots.
Since the implants can often take full advantage of existing bone in patients who qualify for this procedure, there is typically no need for a bone graft. Full sets of dentures are anchored to the four implants, which give them significantly more stability without the need for a separate implant to replace each tooth. As a result, the All-on-Four implants tend to be a more cost-effective solution for missing teeth.
The procedure can often be completed in a single day, and most patients are able to resume normal daily activities the day after treatment. The results of All-on-Four anchored dentures can be permanent, giving you a natural-looking set of teeth that feel comfortable and do not slip along the gums.
