Are you among the 35 million adults who do not have any remaining natural teeth? You have likely tried traditional dentures to restore your ability to chew and speak, but they did not give you the results you wanted. Although new innovations allow them to look more realistic, they never truly feel natural. You can enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth with All-on-4 in Reno. Dental implant posts anchor your denture to your jawbone, so you never need to worry about slipping or irritation again.
Traditional dentures rely on suction or an adhesive to hold them to your gum tissue. Even with the best fit possible, you still need to avoid certain foods because they are too difficult to chew. You can regain as much as 70% of your biting force with All-on-4.
4 implant posts are strategically placed into your jawbone. This stimulates new bone growth because they act as tooth roots. As a result, your bone fuses to the posts to create a stable foundation for your new smile.
If you are missing all your teeth on the top or bottom arch, you are often a candidate for All-on-4; however, you will require a consultation. The long-term success of dental implants relies on your jawbone’s ability to fuse to the posts. As a result, you cannot have compromised bone density in your jaw. If you do, you can still become a candidate for dental implants with bone grafting.
Besides your jawbone’s density, you cannot have any oral or general health issues that impact the bones or your body’s ability to heal and fight infections. You must also be committed to your oral hygiene to keep your smile infection-free.
The materials and unique process used to replace your missing teeth with All-on-4 allows you to enjoy several benefits when compared to traditional dentures.
Traditional dental implants replace a single tooth. They consist of an implant post, an abutment, and a dental crown. You cannot replace an entire arch using this method. Instead, 4 implant posts are inserted into your jaw to support the denture. Each post is fitted with a special fixture that allows the denture to clip or clasp onto the implant posts to hold it in place. Unlike traditional dentures, you can often fully complete your smile in just one day instead of having to wait several months for your jawbone to heal. We can fit you with a temporary denture while you heal, so there is no need to go without your teeth.
