How All-On-Four Protects Your Facial Structure

When you lose most of your teeth, or all of them, the body could stop sending key nutrients to the jaw. Without these, you risk jawbone shrinkage and an older appearance. To protect your structure, you may need dental implants to prevent this erosion in your jaw. Our team at our dental implant center in Stillwater, OK can help with All-On-Four dental implant dentures.

The Loss of Jawbone Structure

How does our smile lose structure in the jaw? When we lose teeth, the body responds by suspending the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the bone structure around the missing root. Without these nutrients, the bone begins to lose mass and density, weakening and breaking down to cause further tooth loss. Over time, this could mean sunken cheeks, a ptotic chin, and other serious signs of aging. For many, this could also limit your ability to receive dental implants without first undergoing a grafting or sinus lift procedure. But with All-On-Four, we can help those who have lost mass and density obtain implant-secured dentures without the need for oral surgery beforehand.

The Benefits of Placing All-On-Four

Traditional dental implant dentures need between six and eight posts per arch. But with All-On-Four, we only need four of them per arch. These posts are designed to require less structure to support, and are smaller and more affordable. We use digital technology to plan the placement, so we choose the right angle and position to place them, and ensure they’re secured at the right depth too. Once in place, we don’t need to wait months for the area to heal. Instead, in the same sitting we connect abutments to the posts and attach a denture. The prosthetic is designed to look natural and contains a full row of ceramic teeth, which can handle daily bite forces with ease. You will leave our office with a complete smile!
