Patients prefer All-on-4 Implants instead of dental bridges or dentures
Nowadays patients can choose other options to restore their missing teeth, not only traditional dentures. Modern cosmetic dentistry’s has developed surgical techniques like All-on-4 Implants.
The All-on-4 Implants are specially designed by NOBEL Biocare and Doctor Malo, this procedure consists on drilling two vertical implants on the front of the arch of the maxilla or jaw bone, then add two tilted implants on the sides to provide stability and anchorage to a milled titanium bar with new teeth, it helps to get more strength in the bite.
Traditional dentures typically rest on the gums and they aren’t secure. They also tend to cove a larger surface area of your mouth and may alter the taste of food.
Dentures or false teeth must be held in place with adhesive, which often involve an awkward application process that must be repeated over and over again each time the teeth are removed.
They cause difficulties in chewing, eating and speaking. Many patients complain about their dentures because it’s very embarrassing to remove them for cleaning and to apply adhesive.
Patients prefer All-on-4 Implants instead of dentures because:
Comfort Level: All-on-4 Implants offer the same force for biting as natural teeth and they don’t interfere with the taste of food.
Confidence Level: A person with All-on-4 Implants never have to fear to eat and to talk because they function just like natural teeth.
Durability: All-on-4 Implants are stable, they preserve your gum and bone mass, they last upwards of 25 years and in many cases, a lifetime.
Dentures often make you feel and look older, causing embarrassment in social situations when they slip and restrict daily activities. All-on-4 Implants gives you secure bond to mouth, with no slipping or moving around.
However the patient must be evaluated to know if he is a good candidate for this procedure because there are some cases that All-on-4 Implants aren’t
