All-On-4 Implants: Get Replacement Teeth That Won’t Fall Out!

Read Transcript

If you are missing one of your front teeth, you have a few problems. Your smile does not look good anymore. You can have trouble eating certain foods. Your words might even sound different. All of that from just one missing tooth. Now, what happens when you are missing all of the teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth? Having that many missing teeth is a big problem. That’s why we offer All-on-4 dental implants at our Jeffersonville, Indiana dentist office to give you a brand-new set of functional, beautiful teeth.

All-on-4® Dental Implants

Read Transcript

All-on-4 is a patented implant method for missing teeth. The procedure starts with a full arch of replacement teeth. They are made to look and feel like natural, healthy teeth, so you’ll be able to smile, eat, and talk normally again as soon as they are placed. All-on-4 uses four implanted titanium roots that connect to the replacement teeth. This means your new teeth will be as secure as they can be. You will not have to worry about them sliding around or falling out unexpectedly, because they simply can’t.

All-on-4 Are Different From Dentures

Read Transcript

Both dentures and All-on-4 dental implants use replacement teeth in a gum-colored base. The big difference is how the implants are placed and secured.

  • Traditional dentures use adhesive and suction to hold onto your gums. These can fail, meaning your teeth can suddenly move or even fall out.
  • Implant-retained and implant-supported dentures use implanted titanium roots to hold onto the gum-colored base. Since these roots are placed in your jawbone, your dentures are not likely to fall out. Both can be removed by a dentist, and implant-retained dentures can be removed by you.
  • All-on-4 implants use implanted roots as well. However, the back two implants are surgically placed at a special angle. This gives All-on-4 dental implants even more stability and hold.
  • Dentures can cover your palate, interfering with how you taste food. All-on-4 implants do not cover the palate. You’ll be able to taste like normal.

All-on-4 Dental Implants: A Healthier Choice For You

All-on-4 dental implants offer several health benefits. First, you’ll be able to eat nutritious food again thanks to the replacement teeth. Because they are very secure, you won’t have to worry about certain foods like apples ruining your day. Second, the pressure from biting goes to your jawbone like it does with natural teeth. With traditional dentures, that force goes to your gums. You can irritate and even hurt your gums that way. But with All-on-4 dental implants, you mimic having natural teeth by moving that force to the jawbone. This keeps the bone strong.

Last, your jaw expects to have roots in it. When you are missing teeth, you are also missing roots. Over time, the bone tissue in your jaw will start to deteriorate if there are no roots there. All-on-4 dental implants extend into the jawbone and support permanent, working teeth on top. Not only does that give such great stability and strength, but it also helps keep the bone tissue in your jaw healthy.

With All-on-4 dental implants, you get the advantages of dentures without the disadvantages. Plus, All-on-4 dental implants can help keep you healthier. Call your trusted Jeffersonville, Indiana dentist today at 812-406-0914 or use our convenient online form for your next appointment.

I come in here and I was a nervous wreck. I hadn't been to a dentist in years because of finances and because I was told at 18 years old that my teeth were going to rot from the inside out and there was nothing they could do, so I gave up on my mouth. I was told that and I gave up. I come in and he ...
