How Do All-On-4 Dental Implants Work?
All-On-4 dental implants are a unique type of implant denture. Implant dentures don’t rely on natural suction from your gums in order to stay in place. Instead, they’re anchored directly into your jawbone with small titanium posts call dental implants. Dental implants fuse with the jawbone to essentially replace the root structure of missing teeth, providing a strong, reliable, and natural foundation for replacement teeth, such as a denture.
However, traditional implant dentures require a certain level of jawbone density to maximize chances of successful treatment. This can be quite a problem for patients facing significant tooth loss, as the jawbone begins to deteriorate once a tooth goes missing. As an alternative to spending time and money on preliminary procedures like bone grafting or a sinus lift, All-On-4 dental implants can help! We’ll place four dental implants into the thickest parts of the jawbone at precise angles to completely support a full denture.
