The Benefits of ‘All-On-4’
There are multiple benefits of an ‘All-on-4’ type of dental implant prosthesis. Most people only know it can help to restore the healthy and beautiful smile they used to have before trauma or neglect took it away. But that is not all, an ‘All-on-4’ type of dental implant prosthesis can do. Here are 3 other benefits that have patients raving about them:
1. An ‘All on 4’ type of denture does not get cavities. You will still need to have your hygienist clean around the implants on a regular basis, and it is critical to continue brushing and flossing in order to keep your gums healthy. You will initially need to be careful about brushing and flossing right after the procedure, but Dr. Strutz and her team will provide you with aftercare instructions.
2. Dental implants can improve how strong your jawbone is. The titanium implant that is placed into your jawbone to hold the denture can actually make your jaw stronger. Bridges and partial dentures can weaken your smile because they are fused or dependent upon your other teeth not your jawbone. This also helps you to keep from getting the caved-in facial look as you age. Why not stay as youthful looking as you can?
3. The implants that are placed then allow a denture to be fixed. This means your denture will not move around when you eat or talk. It also means that you can have an upper denture without a palate, allowing you to enjoy your meals more.
Don’t live with a smile that you do not love. This state of the art option can give you your smile and your self-confidence back.
