How Does All-On-4 Address Advanced Tooth Loss?

The loss of several teeth impacts everything from our ability to eat to how we speak. To address missing teeth and restore your oral health, we may suggest the All-On-4 system. How do implant dentures help our Urbandale, IA, patients enjoy a complete smile once more?

The Dangers of Multiple Missing Teeth

Losing several teeth, or a majority of them, impacts our ability to eat. Unable to enjoy a variety of food, we end up depriving ourselves of essential nutrients. patients with advanced tooth loss also have trouble speaking clearly. Not to mention, the lack of teeth means the body stops supplying the jawbone with critical doses of calcium and phosphorus. Without these nutrients, the bone tissue deteriorates and people develop an older appearance, including sunken cheeks and ptotic chins. However, by addressing your tooth loss you can enjoy a healthier smile and more youthful facial features.

All-On-4 Implant Dentures

Instead of relying on metal clasps or natural suction like traditional dentures, their custom-made dental prosthetics are instead attached to multiple dental implants. The All-On-4 system secures an entire denture on just four dental implants per arch. Specifically placed, they support the denture while also stimulating the growth of jawbone structure, which preserves your facial structure. Implant dentures remain in place for decades with proper care and attention, while removable dentures often require replacement every five to ten years. We will create each prosthetic using lifelike materials, ensuring they look natural and reflect your unique facial features. If you have advanced tooth loss, don’t resign yourself to poor oral health, talk to our team. Using implant dentistry, we want to help you enjoy a full and healthy smile that you’ll be eager to show off to the world!
