You may have heard the words All-on-4 thrown around and been confused. Is that a new golf swing? Or a new social media site? Nope, all-on-4 refers to a new and fantastic way to get your smile back. It is an implant supported smile where most of the procedure is done and completed in one day. This way, you can walk into the office with no teeth and walk out with a beautiful and restored smile. Here are the answers to 5 of your most common questions.
1. Do All-On-4 implant dentures come out at night? No, they stay in just like your regular teeth. Once your implant denture is placed you will brush regularly.
2. Can you taste food? Traditional upper dentures cover the palate of the mouth. This can decrease your ability to enjoy foods you once loved. All-on-4 implant dentures do not cover the palate of the mouth. This allows the taste buds on the roof to be exposed and help you enjoy the rich flavor of food.
3. Do All-on-4 Implants fall out? No, unlike traditional dentures, the denture is attached to an implant or screw in your jaw bone making it a permanent solution to missing teeth.
4. Are they expensive? The cost of the procedure will depend on your individual circumstances. But it is a cost-efficient way to replace all of your missing teeth.
