In addition to the short treatment time frame, All-on-4 Dental Implants have a number of advantages over conventional dentures:
A full set of dentures allows for about 10% of chewing capacity compared to a full set of natural teeth. This means a softer diet, which may eliminate some of the foods that you’re accustomed to eating. With permanent dental implants, you can regain your self-confidence and 70-90% of your chewing ability. Eat the foods you once enjoyed. More often than not, denture wearers complain that their denture ends up “flopping around a lot.” A denture is a last resort. This state-of-the-art technique is specifically designed for individuals to re-establish their chewing function, stop bone loss and the effects of aging.
While the costs of dentures or partials may seem much less expensive, when you factor in long term health and stability, and the fact that generally bridges or dentures need to be replaced every 5-10 years, Dental implants are very cost competitive with other tooth replacement choices. And when you factor in long term oral health and quality of life, implants are a great choice!
