When a person is missing all of their teeth, getting a set of dentures is a common treatment option. However, implant-supported dentures may be the most ideal option to really restore the aesthetics of your smile as well as your ability to bite and chew without hassles. At Allied Denture Clinic we do not place implants, but rather we work in conjunction with the Dentist who places the implants.
A Full Set of Upper and/or Lower Teeth
All-On-4® gives patients a full arch restoration. Because of the effectiveness of the All-On-4® system, the procedure can be performed on both the upper dental arch and the lower dental arch. In fact, a full set of dentures for upper and lower teeth can be placed using All-On-4®.
Excellent Smile Aesthetics
The craftsmanship of the All-On-4® system is extraordinary. Patients with an All-On-4® denture can laugh, smile, and speak with total confidence. Even up close, people will not notice that you have a denture in place. You’ll experience renewed confidence in the way you look.
Restoring Facial Aesthetics in the Process
People missing most or all of their teeth can experience serious issues with facial aesthetics. Lips may seem slack or loose, and checks might appear sunken inward or hollow. Dentures help fill out facial features, improving your overall appearance in the process.
Restores Ability to Bite and Chew
From a purely functional standpoint, All-On-4® can restore your ability to bite and chew your favourite foods. You will no longer need to rely on soft foods or liquified foods in order to meet your nutritional needs.
Dental Implants Are Sturdy and Strong
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically anchored into your jawbone. When they heal, the implants fuse with the bone structure. This allows a level of stability not possible with even the strongest dental adhesives. With a denture supported by dental implants, even tricky foods like corn on the cob won’t budge your appliance or cause it to fall out/come loose.
Prevents Bone Loss and Gum Recession
Tooth loss causes unavoidable bone loss and gum recession along the dental arch. This happens because there is no root structure in place for the bone tissue to support. With dental implants, issues with bone loss and gum recession are prevented. This leads to better overall dental health in the long run.
Dentures Fit Snugly Against Dental Arch
Thanks to All-On-4®, the patient’s dentures are snapped snuggly into place along the dental arch. This means increased comfort when biting and chewing as well as less of a seam along the dental arch where the denture rests. This improves smile aesthetics as well as overall function.
