16 May Who are All-on-4 Dental Implants for?
Losing teeth can negatively affect a person’s confidence while also making it difficult to eat and speak. For patients feeling self-conscious or struggling with tooth loss, dental implants can improve their overall well-being.
In this blog, we’re going to talk about all-on-4 dental implants and who can benefit from them. Read on to find out if you are eligible for all-on-4 dental implants.
What are all-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 implants are a set of artificial teeth that have been created to appear and feel like your natural teeth. Using 4 implant screws, rather than 6 or 10, these implants are surgically secured into your jaw to feel and act like a natural set of teeth.
As an alternative to dentures, they are permanently fixed into place so that they last a long time without requiring you to get other procedures. If the all-on-4 dental implants are well-maintained and kept in a healthy condition with good oral hygiene, then they can last between 10-25 years.
What are the benefits of all-on-4 dental implants?
For most patients, the biggest benefit is the natural appearance and feel of the all-on-4 dental implants. Just like your natural set of teeth, they can’t be removed and require regular brushing and flossing.
Another benefit is the timeframe. All-on-4 dental implant surgery can be completed in just one day and you will almost immediately reap the benefits of the implant. It also means that you will be able to eat properly and enjoy mealtimes once again.
Another big factor for patients is appearance. For many, getting their natural smile back gives them a huge confidence boost. They start feeling comfortable and more like themselves again.
Who are all-on-4 dental implants for?
All-on-4 dental implants can be really beneficial for a range of patients. We would recommend this type of implant for patients who have trouble with their speech or struggle to eat, as mentioned previously.
Patients suffering from loose dentures are also eligible, along with patients who have severe gum disease. Patients who have failing crowns or bridges may also want to consider all-on-4 implants, as will those who have severe bone loss. Sometimes dentists will recommend all-on-4 dental implants to patients if they need bone grafts for implants.
