A Closer Look at All-on-4®
All-on-4® is a full tooth replacement treatment similar to full dentures; however, All-on-4® utilizes the support and strength of dental implants to anchor replacement teeth on both the top and bottom jaws. Just like full dentures, qualifying patients must have no remaining teeth (or a dentist or oral surgeon must remove any remaining teeth. Dr. Stein then places four titanium implants into both jaws to provide permanent support that prevents slipping like traditional dentures. Once implant placement is complete and the mouth has healed, our team designs and places custom prosthetic teeth to mimic a very natural-looking and fully-functional smile.
All-on-4® is a popular option for those who are looking for a stronger alternative to traditional dentures. However, we want to make sure that every patient receives a successful treatment. Determining the right patients for this procedure includes examining each prospective candidate’s:
- Oral health history
- Medical history
- List of prescribed medications
- History of tobacco use
Poor gum health can lead to implant failure, so treating and eliminating any present gum disease is crucial before treatment can begin. Systemic health conditions that could alter your mouth’s ability to heal, such as diabetes, should also be discussed with Dr. Stein. Additionally, any past or upcoming radiation therapy near the jaw could be a barrier to receiving implants.
Benefits of All-on-4®
When it comes to teeth replacement, All-on-4® treatment provides so many aesthetic and restorative benefits, including:
- No more “slipping” dentures
- Immediate teeth replacement for qualified candidates
- Fewer dietary restrictions when compared to traditional dentures
- Confidence and comfort when eating and drinking
- Improved digestion thanks to stronger chewing abilities
- No more denture palate over the roof of the mouth which could alter speech
Overall, All-on-4® functions a lot more like your natural teeth than traditional dentures.
