Are Dental Implants for Me?

Deciding to get dental implants can be difficult. Although there are other options, “All-On-4®” implants provide many more benefits for individuals than dentures. Before discussing the benefits these implants offer, one should determine if dental implants are right for their needs.

Do I Need Dental Implants?

Regardless of age, “All-On-4®” implants are perfect for patients with missing teeth and healthy gums. Those suffering from periodontal disease or autoimmune disorders might find that these conditions interfere with implant treatment plans. Although individuals may already be using dentures, they can still be an ideal candidate for “All-On-4®” implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are many benefits in replacing weak, worn, or missing teeth. Some of these benefits are:

  • Increase in oral comfort
  • Improving the ability to eat
  • It makes it easier to speak
  • Improves jaw health
  • Longlasting and durable

All-On-4®” implants allow people to improve their life. Giving individuals the ability to eat the foods they once could without fear of teeth falling out. Moreover, these people can live without being in constant pain or discomfort from biting and chewing. Additionally, replacing missing or broken teeth makes it easier for a person to speak and to talk without the embarrassment of having teeth issues. 

Missing teeth can have adverse effects on the health of a jaw. For example, a jawbone begins to weaken when there is tooth loss. This leads to bone mass deterioration, which dentures are unable to stop. However, the use of “All-On-4®” implants can prevent bone mass loss from occurring. 
Additionally, “All-On-4®” implants are permanent solutions, whereas dentures are temporary solutions to jaw health and teeth loss. Individuals can treat these implants like natural teeth, brushing, flossing, and eating regular diets. However, after this type of dental procedure, one should carefully follow all post-procedure directions, including eating soft foods. Following dental instructions will aid in ensuring proper healing takes place and ensure the lifespan of the “All-On-4®” implants. If one has questions or concerns about “All-On-4®” implants, please set up a time to discuss these concerns with a dentist specializing in dental implants.
