Benefits of All-on-4 Implant
Arguably the greatest benefit of All-on-4 implants is that they prevent bone loss. Without teeth to stimulate it, the jawbone will shrink over time in a process called resorption. However, implant posts inserted into the jaw will stimulate the bone, preventing resorption. Since bone loss increases the risk of oral health complications and also results in sagging facial features, preventing jaw bone loss supports not just your oral health but also your facial muscles and features.
Another great benefit of All-on-4 implants is that they provide greatly increased patient satisfaction compared to traditional dentures. Though traditional dentures are a cost-effective option for replacing a full arch, many people find essential tasks like eating and speaking difficult and uncomfortable with them. Implant supported dentures offer numerous benefits to oral functions, including a much improved ability to eat and speak. For example, compared to conventional dentures, implant supported dentures offer an increased bite force of over 70%! All-on-4 implants are securely fixed in place, so you won’t have to worry about adhesives or slipping, and you’ll be able to speak and eat with confidence again!
