The benefits of all-on-4 dental implants
Full arch dental implants are an excellent option for patients looking to replace missing teeth. The implants, also referred to as “all-on-4″ implants, hold full dentures in place without the need for denture adhesives. At Humber Valley Dental of Bolton, Ontario, our team can discuss with you the benefits of this special restorative treatment.
What are the advantages of full arch dental implants?
Here are some of the key benefits to keep in mind:
- Implants both look and feel like your natural teeth. Implants are designed to look and feel just like your natural teeth. They are custom-made to match the colour, size, and shape of your existing teeth, so nobody will be able to tell that you have them. Also, implants are securely fused to your jawbone, so they do not slip or move around as dentures can. This gives you the confidence to smile, speak, and eat without worry.
- Implants are permanent and durable. Dental implants are designed to last a patient’s lifetime. With proper care, they can stay in place for decades without needing to be replaced. Additionally, because they are made from titanium – a strong and durable metal – they are much less likely to either break or chip than natural teeth.
- Implants preserve bone density in the jaw. When you lose teeth, the bone in your jaw begins to deteriorate. This causes your face to change shape and makes you look older than you are. However, because dental implants fuse to your jawbone, they help to preserve its density and prevent further deterioration. That improves the look and contours of your face and helps keep your mouth healthy and functional as you age.
- Implants help you eat and speak with confidence. With dental implants, you can eat all your favorite foods without worry. Additionally, because the dentures are securely fused in place with four implants along the arch, they will not slip or move around when you are speaking, which can be a common problem with dentures. This means you can talk confidently, knowing that your teeth will not slip or fall out.
- Implants are easy to care for. Dental implants are simple to care for. You brush and floss them like you would your natural teeth. Besides, because they do not have any food traps as dentures do, they are not likely to become stained or harbor bacteria. Your implants will stay clean and functional for many years with proper care.
