Missing all or most of your teeth not only changes your appearance but can have a negative effect on your quality of life, making it difficult to speak, eat, and drink as you normally would. Dentures have always been the traditional tooth replacement option for patients who are missing all or most of their teeth, but our dentists at StoneRidge Dental Care are proud to provide our patients with a variety of restorative dental care options designed to restore the form and function of their smiles. One of our most popular restorative tooth replacement options for these patients is all-on-four, implant-supported dentures.
What Are All-On-Four Dental Implants?All-on-four dental implants are like a traditional denture that is permanently fixed to four dental implants. All-on-four dental implants are designed to replace an entire row (top, bottom, or both) of missing teeth.
The Benefits of All-On-Four Dental ImplantsAs a tooth replacement option, all-on-four dental implants offer a variety of benefits and advantages over traditional dentures including:
- Jawbone support and stimulation
- Superior comfort
- Better function
- Perfect fit
- Easy care
- Natural look, feel, and function
Are You a Candidate for Treatment With All-On-Four?While all-on-four, implant-supported dentures are an excellent restorative dentistry option, they are not right for everyone. Candidates for all-on-four implants must:
- Be missing all or most of their teeth on either or both the top or bottom arches
- Have generally good oral health with no signs of periodontal disease
- Be a candidate for receiving dental implants
- Be healthy enough to undergo dental implant placement surgery
