Denture wearers can enjoy all of the advantages of dental implants, thanks to All-on-4. The implant system offered by Dr. John Stockdale, your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist at Renaissance Dental Care, can be a good choice whether you've had dentures for years or will soon be getting them.

What is on All-on-4?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace natural tooth roots. They're connected to dental crowns to completely restore missing teeth. Implants are placed in openings made in your jawbone. Once in place, dental implants gradually osseointegrate, or bond, to the bone, ensuring a strong foundation for your new teeth.

Typically, one implant is used for each tooth that is replaced. As you can imagine, replacing missing roots and crowns one-by-one would be expensive and time-consuming for denture wearers. Fortunately, All-on-4 offers a better solution.

When you choose All-on-4, your dentures will be attached to just four implants per arch. These implants are strategically placed to provide excellent support for your denture.

5 benefits of All-on-4

Benefits of All-on-4 Include:

  • Improved Comfort: Your dentures will no longer rest on your gums, which can help decrease irritation. You also won't have to worry that your dentures will slip and slide when you speak or eat.
  • Stronger Jawbone: Tooth roots stimulate your jawbone and keep it strong. Adding implants will help you avoid jawbone resorption, a problem that occurs when the bone begins to shrink.
  • Enhanced Biting Ability: Decreased biting power is one of the drawbacks of full dentures. Without strong roots, it can be difficult to bite and chew hard or tough foods. Attaching your dentures to dental implants can improve your ability to eat a variety of foods once again.
  • Convenience: You'll probably need only one appointment to add your dental implants to your jawbone.
  • Easy Care: Once your dentures are connected to your All-on-4 implants, caring for your dentures will become very easy. In fact, you'll only need to brush your dentures the same way you brushed your natural teeth and floss around the implants. Regular checkups at the Rancho Cucamonga dental office will help you keep your All-on-4 implants in good condition.
