If you have one or more teeth lost to extraction or fallout, dental implants may be able to offer a comprehensive and lifelike solution to replacing them. Losing several teeth or your full smile may make the prospect of dental implant surgery seem quite intimidating. Fortunately, there is a way to replace an entire smile or just a section of your smile with a limited amount of implants. With All-On-4® implant dentures, you can receive the benefits of dentures supported with implants with only four strategically placed implant posts. Traditionally, dentures would need to be supported by six to eight posts.
Implant dentures are easier to maintain than traditional dentures. Implants act like prosthetic roots to your teeth. When dentures are secured by implants, the dentures themselves are closer to your gum line than traditional dentures. This proximity allows for a more lifelike appearance, but it also makes them easier to clean. Implants also minimize the potential loss of bone density in your jaw. Without implants, your jaw bone can lose density, which can change the shape of your jaw over time. This changing shape can affect the way your dentures fit. All-On-4® dentures allow for permanent support of the bone with a good fit for the dentures.
Your smile can benefit from All-On-4® implant dentures whether you need to restore your upper ridge of the teeth, your lower ridge, or both. The implant system is customized and planned to suit your smile’s specific needs. The four implants will be precisely placed in a position and angle to absorb the pressure from your bite.
All-On-4® implant dentures are designed for patients who are looking to rebuild their smiles with dentures. Fewer implants needed to support the dentures means minimizing the extent of surgery needed to insert the implants.
All-On-4® dentures can fully restore your smile with just four implants. To schedule a consultation with Austin Prosthodontics in Austin, TX, call 512-250-9444. We also proudly welcome patients from Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Leander, and all surrounding Texas communities.
