We know some people find full dentures awkward to wear and if this applies to you, then All-on-Four is one possible solution. All-on-Four can hold a complete arch of teeth firmly in position. This technique is often used to hold lower dentures securely in place as these tend to cause more problems compared to upper dentures. However, All-on-Four may also be used to secure upper dentures.
Especially designed to help people who are edentulous, this technique needs just four dental implants, which is far fewer than is normally required. These are inserted towards the front of the jawbone, where the bone is naturally stronger and thicker. Once fully integrated with the jawbone, these implants are strong enough to support a complete denture.
This can be a very cost-effective solution due to the few number of dental implants required. It can also be good for anybody who has suffered significant bone loss since their natural teeth were removed. Inserting the implants towards the front of the jaw maximises the use of the strongest available bone, minimising the need for bone grafts.
If you currently struggle to wear full dentures and are looking for a long-term solution, it’s worth contacting New Age Dental to find out more about this option.
