Reasons to Replace Your Teeth With All-on-4
Should you replace your damaged or missing teeth with dentures or All-on-4 replacement teeth? The short answer is yes! All-on-4 replacement teeth are the absolute best option for people needing full-mouth prosthetic teeth.
Why get All-on-4?
Getting replacement teeth presents a challenge. Multiple factors enter into the decision-making process, but comfort level should be near the top. After all, these teeth will be in place for the rest of a patient’s life, so they should fit and function as comfortably as possible.
Traditional dentures rest directly on the gums, secured with an adhesive creme. Initially, traditional dentures fit snugly and stay put. Unfortunately, the tight fit does not last. With traditional dentures, bone loss will continue in the jaw. The shape of the mouth and gums will change, which affects how traditional dentures fit.
Changes in the mouth cause dentures to slip and rub against the fragile gum tissue. This leads to discomfort and even pain as irritated gum tissue gives way to open sores under the denture plate. Infection often follows, preventing a person from even wearing the dentures at all. With All-on-4, there is no need to worry about any of these issues. All-on-4 teeth provide a permanent, immovable denture arch. Dental implants anchor both upper and lower arches to create a stable fit. The arches rest on the titanium implants, not against the sensitive gum tissue.
People who wear traditional dentures often find their food choices diminished. Despite the claims of advertising campaigns, the truth is that most denture-wearers avoid certain types of food. Crunchy, sticky, chewy or tough foods fall off the menu for traditional denture-wearers because they threaten the stability of the dentures. No one wants to bite down on a nice, juicy carrot and have their denture plate come off; that will not happen with All-on-4 teeth. The implants that anchor the replacement teeth arches prevent movement. All-on-4 wearers enjoy eating any type of food they desire without worrying about damage to prosthetic teeth.
Another important cost factor to consider long-term is how replacement teeth make someone look and feel. They give them satisfaction in their smile –– or not. They prevent jawbone loss and provide support for their cheeks to remain full and youthful –– or not. The condition of the teeth contributes to one's sense of self-confidence. What’s the bottom line? All-on-4 teeth have the look and feel of natural teeth and gums. The implants that anchor the arches also prevent bone loss and may even contribute to bone growth in a compromised jaw. When it comes to gaining or retaining a healthy sense of comfort and self-confidence in a smile, All-on-4 teeth give a person what they need.
Teeth do more than just chew your food. When you have to replace them, you need to consider multiple issues. In the critical categories of comfort and function, All-on-4 replacement teeth provide the overall best solution.
