What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

The All-on-4 implant is a mixture of various dental procedures and technology that provide the replacement teeth with a clear and safe connection that is far more durable and effective than conventional denture attachment approaches, such as basic natural suction or denture adhesives. To have a firm and solid base that keeps the permanent teeth in place, All-on-4 uses a series of fixed dental implants that are implanted in the patient’s jaw. All-on-4 is often sometimes referred to as a type of ‘implant assisted dentures’ because of this, but this is a general concept that often includes other replacement teeth types.

The dental implants used in the All-on-4 treatment protocol vary slightly from the usual dental implant, which is actually meant to replace a single tooth. The part of the implant that is attached to the interior of the jaw bone is exactly the same, but the part of the implant that is exposed to the top replaces the artificial tooth of a normal implant with a specialized cap-shaped tip. These four tips are used to get a tactile connection between the jaw and the artificial teeth, which has a similar collection of four receptacles on the underside. It is this clear tactile connection between the implants and the new teeth that gives the patient a much more normal feeling.

The advantages of the All-on-4

The advantages of the All-on-4 approach are various, both directly related to your oral health and implicitly related to benefits in other aspects of your life.

 

Prohibiting Bone Loss

One of the most common consequences of damaged and broken teeth is bone loss in the jaw as a result. The All-on-4 method is effective in reducing the impact of bone loss as the implants are directly attached to the jawbone and function in a manner similar to the roots of natural teeth. The pressure exerted on the jawbone is close to that of natural teeth, facilitating bone mass preservation and giving strength to the region.

Also in patients who have undergone any degree of bone deterioration, the All-on-4 system can also be used. Since the implants have such a secure link to the original jaw bone, there is a greatly decreased probability that a bone graft would be required to proceed. By eliminating the need for bone graft, deadlines for healing and care are greatly shortened.

 

Greater self-confidence

Patients who undergo All-on-4 therapies end up with a full collection of natural-looking teeth attached safely and easily in their mouths, allowing them to enjoy all their preferred food and a wide range of food and drink without fear. Knowing that the teeth will remain in alignment at all hours, patients feel a great boost of self-confidence when they no longer need to think about circumstances where missing dentures can be a cause of shame.

Easier treatment and proper cleanliness

Caring for all-on-4 teeth and implants is simple and incorporates many of the usual oral care routines that you are still acquainted with. Brushing, flossing, oral rinsing, and daily dental check-ups are all the practices you need to keep up with. All-on-4 has the added advantage of removing the need for any sticky or expensive adhesives that are typically used in most conventional denture types. This saves time, trouble, and money in the long run.

 

Permanently settled

One of the main advantages of All-on-4 care is that the effects are lasting and do not require regular fitting sessions that conventional dentures require. Since the All-on-4 device uses dentures that are firmly connected to the mouth by implants, the attachment is not vulnerable to the same problems that arise from gum recession that allow conventional dentures to become loose and painful over time. All-on-4 is a permanent alternative that offers the patient more ease and ease.
