Dealing with other people feels different when you have missing teeth. That is because it's difficult to hide them while you speak, making every personal interaction awkward. Thankfully, modern dentistry continues to evolve by innovating more dental technologies and procedures, like All-on-4® in Marco Island.
All-on-4® dental implants don't have to be taken out. They appear and function like natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, these implants don't need adhesives, so they don't press down on your gums. They also allow you to bite with increased force.
All-on-4® dental implants utilize four implants per arch that are placed at an angle to allow increased contact by using the natural support of your bone. They don't require bone grafting in most cases. That's why many patients need to see their dentist fewer times than with other teeth replacement alternatives. Because of this, patients save time, money, and discomfort down the line.
The success rate of All-on-4® dental implants does not solely lie in the hands of the dentists, but also their wearers. Despite completion, they still have to regularly visit their dentist to make sure that the areas around the arches are clean and disease-free.
Smoking can also impact their effectiveness, so patients are advised not to engage in such activity.
You can get All-on-4® dental implants as long as you are healthy and a non-smoker. These implants are also perfect if you already have dentures or are planning to have dentures in the future.
At Island Paradise Dental, we love to see you smile. That's why we work hard to give you back the confidence to do it. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
