All-on-4 implants look, feel and act just like natural teeth
The all-on-4 concept was developed in the early ’90s by Prof Paulo Malo and has since grown in popularity, particularly for individuals who are looking for an alternative to removable dentures.
All-on-4 implants are designed to provide patients with a completely new arch of natural-looking teeth without the need for bone grafting. The process is far quicker than many other restorative procedures, which generally makes it very cost-effective.
But what does it feel like to have all-on-4 implants?
How do all-on-4 implants look and feel?
All-on-4 implants are designed to look and feel just like natural teeth. No one will be able to tell that you have replacement teeth.
After having all-on-4 treatment, you will be able to enjoy a fully functional new set of permanent teeth. All-on-4 implants are fixed, which makes them very stable, so they will not slide out of place like removable dentures. If you have had ill-fitting dentures before, you will notice an improvement in your overall comfort and ability to bite and chew properly.
What are the benefits of all-on-4 implants?
There are several benefits to choosing all-on-4 implants, including:
- Function and look just like natural teeth
- Restores your bite and chewing function
- No food restrictions
- Less discomfort and difficulty than dentures
- Stimulate jaw bone growth
- Prevents jaw bone deterioration
- Fairly simple procedure
Does the all-on-4 procedure cause discomfort?
The procedure itself is also relatively simple and does not cause any considerable pain. While you may experience some swelling and discomfort following the placement of the implants, this will subside with time.
Success rates tend to be much higher than conventional techniques, and it is possible to enjoy results in as little as 24 hours. The process does not require bone grafting, which means it is less invasive than other methods.
Who is the all-on-4 treatment suitable for?
All-on-4 implants are often an excellent option for patients who have lost their teeth some time ago and are looking for an alternative to removable dentures. All-on-4 implants are an effective solution for missing teeth, as well as broken or crumbling teeth, periodontal disease or infection, poorly fitting dentures and weak and brittle teeth.
