Did you know that not all tooth replacement methods are the same?
But did you know that along with varying methods and preparations, the difference each replacement strategy can make for your life is vastly different than the other?
Perhaps not, but that changes today because our team at Tieken Smiles is sharing some insight into two important benefits of choosing All-on-4® dental implants from our League City, TX practice!
How Are All-on-4® Dental Implants Different?
Let’s reflect on traditional dentures, first.
Bonded firmly in place on top of your gums with a dental adhesive, removable dentures will work just fine at first. But they can expand over time and will need to be adjusted or replaced every few years.
They also have to be taken out and thoroughly cleaned daily and soaked all night while you sleep. This is to prevent infections.
If your dentures don’t fit properly, they’ll shift, or even fall out, when you’re talking and eating. That’s a dealbreaker for many patients who can’t bear the thought of something so mortifying.
All-on-4® dental implants are different. Your new teeth are fixed bridges that look as natural and beautiful as real teeth. They’re attached to four strategically-placed dental implants, usually with two in front and two somewhere further back. These implants firmly stabilize your replacement teeth so you can eat what you want and socialize without fear.
Daily cleaning is the same as your normal oral hygiene routine now, which makes them even more appealing to patients.
In short, All-on-4® dental implants are an option that makes a higher quality of life more possible.
2 Important Benefits Of All-on-4® Implants
Dental implants give more power to your bite than any other form of tooth replacement. That’s thanks to the natural fusion with your jawbone that happens after they’re placed. This method secures your new teeth so they won’t budge when you sit down for that feast of delicious steak and corn-on-cob!
Eating anything you want is good for your state of mind and for your level of nutrition.
So that’s really the first important benefit of choosing implants to secure your new restorations.
The second is how the security of dental implants will affect your self-esteem and peace of mind. It’s not just when you’re eating, but in everything you do. Speaking at the next business meeting feeling confident that your slippery dentures won’t fall out onto the conference table. Laughing with family and friends at the next holiday party without worry.
The possible scenarios are endless where you can feel at ease and relaxed when you once felt riddled with stress and anxiety.
