What Are All-on-Four Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are small, titanium screws that are surgically placed into your jawbone that are designed to integrate with surrounding tissues to provide a firm foundation for a custom implant-supported restoration. Each time you bite down, the implants will stimulate the nerves within your jawbone, eliminating jawbone degeneration, an issue often experienced when wearing traditional dentures.

In order to qualify for traditional dental implants, you must have adequate jawbone strength. However, all-on-four dental implants provide patients facing poor jawbone density or who are looking to avoid bone grafting an immediate tooth replacement solution. Each implant is strategically placed to provide adequate support. At your consultation, Dr. Denes, will examine your mouth to determine your eligibility.

All-on-Four Implants are Stable

A major complaint with traditional dentures is the possibility of them clicking or slipping out of place during mealtimes. An implant-retained denture supported by all-on-four dental implants provides optimal stability and allows you to once again enjoy social dining. This factor alone makes this procedure a desirable one for patients facing significant tooth loss.

Aside from making mealtime more enjoyable, your implant-retained denture will be more comfortable to wear. Over time, traditional dentures can shift or slide around in your mouth when speaking, causing gums to become sore and irritated. We have found that patients wear their all-on-four implant dentures more often then traditional ones because they fit securely and comfortably.

All-on-Four Implants Eliminate Facial Collapse and Provides Improved Aesthetics

Traditional dentures do not stimulate the nerves within your jawbone because they simply rest directly on your gums. Because of this, bone begins to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Over time, this can lead to changes in your jawbone structure and facial collapse.

Because all-on-four dental implants fuse with your surrounding jawbone, it can imitate your natural tooth roots and stimulate healthy bone regeneration and maintain proper facial structure.

Aside from maintaining facial structure, your smile will appear natural and beautiful after your procedure. Dr. Denes carefully chooses the right shade for your replacement teeth to provide natural-looking aesthetics and an appealing smile.

All-on-Four Implants Require Minimal Maintenance

Traditional dentures can be difficult to maintain and generally require replacing every five to seven years. A lengthy bedtime routine could prevent you from properly caring for your oral health, opening yourself up to periodontal disease. However, implant dentures are easier to care for and are designed to last a lifetime. Dr. Denes advises patients to remove their prosthetic teeth each night for cleaning and when sleeping. While the teeth are out of your mouth, brush them and your gums effectively to remove built up bacteria. It’s important to brush around and over your dental implants to reduce risk of infection.

If you’re looking for an easy, beautiful solution to replacing your missing teeth, schedule your appointment with Dr. Denes today. Call 559-297-1294 to speak with a friendly Fresno, CA staff member.
