Restoring your smile
Restoring your smile when you are missing teeth can be challenging, as there are so many factors to consider. If you thought that conventional dentures were the only possible solution when you need to replace all of your teeth, you should ask your dentist about All-on-Four.
Q: What is All-on-Four?
All-on-Four is a unique combination of restorations that creates a perfect solution for many smiles that are missing most or all of their natural teeth. All on Four combines the simplicity of dentures with all the benefits of dental implants. This restoration works uniquely by placing four dental implants in strategic places in the jaw and adding a denture that replaces the full arch of teeth.
Q: What are the benefits of All-on-Four?
Because this solution combines the best of two dental restorations, it provides many benefits for those who need to replace one or both dental arches. It would not be practical to replace half or all of your teeth with single dental implants alone, yet many people today don’t like the idea of traditional dentures. All-on-Four conveniently uses a denture or bridge to replace all of the teeth at once, while the implants provide improved stability and unique health benefits for your jaw and gums.
Q: What are the other options for replacing teeth?
There are a variety of other options to replace teeth, depending on how many teeth need to be replaced, and your personal needs. A full dental arch can still be replaced by conventional dentures, and even fewer teeth can be replaced by partial dentures. You may also use implants along with another restoration such as a crown or dental bridge to replace one or just a few teeth. Dental bridges can be used alone to replace a few teeth in a row.
If you have many teeth to be replaced, your dentist would be likely to suggest All-on-Four as a superior restoration.
If you need to replace all or half of your teeth, you should ask your dentist about All-on-Four and find out if this innovative combined restoration could give you your old smile back.
