All-on-4® Dental Implants: Why They're the Best Option for Replacing Missing Teeth

While your teeth are designed to last a lifetime, tooth decay, gum disease, and trauma may have other plans, leaving you sear

While your teeth are designed to last a lifetime, tooth decay, gum disease, and trauma may have other plans, leaving you searching for the best option for replacing your missing teeth. Whether you’re missing your upper teeth, lower teeth, or all of them, you want replacements that fulfill both form and function and come without the hassle and discomfort of removable prosthetics. Well, we have that solution, and it’s called the All-on-4 dental implant treatment.

At Today’s Dentistry, under the expert direction of Dr. Peter Lee, we pride ourselves on providing our patients in San Jose, California, with the very latest products and services that will have them smiling from ear to ear. We understand that missing teeth pose far more than a cosmetic concern, as the loss can have an incredibly serious impact on your ability to chew and speak properly. To cover all of your bases, including aesthetics, the All-on-4 system is unparalleled.

Here’s a look at why we feel that All-on-4 implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth.

All-on-4 offers superior stability

If you’ve struggled with dentures, you understand that these devices are limited in their ability to properly replace your missing teeth. While effective, dentures are removable devices that aren’t terribly well-anchored in your mouth as they rely on adhesives and suction that limit your ability to use your teeth as you once did.

The All-on-4 system relies on four dental implants that we place into your jawbone, allowing your bone tissue to fuse around the implants for superior stability. With these strategically placed implants, we create abutments to which we attach your row of teeth, eliminating the slippage and shifting that often come with dentures.

Implants prevent bone loss

One of our major concerns with missing teeth is the threat of bone loss in your jawbone. When you lose teeth, you lose much more than meets the eye, including the roots that go down into your jaw. With the loss of these roots, your bone tissue in those areas ceases to regenerate itself because of the lack of stimulation. 

With the All-on-4 treatment, we place posts into your jawbone, which your body readily accepts, prompting it to continue to renew the bone in the area.

Less hassle with All-on-4

If you’re considering replacing all of your teeth with implants or dentures, these treatments take considerable time from start to finish and several visits to our office. With the All-on-4 system, we can replace your upper, lower, or both rows of teeth in one procedure. 

After thoroughly evaluating your unique needs and taking CT scans to identify the best placement options for your implants, we place the posts. We use anesthesia for your comfort, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the implantation.

Once the implants are in place, we attach your new set of teeth to them, making sure that everything fits securely in your mouth.

All-on-4s are easy to care for

One of the attributes our clients love best is the ease of care of the All-on-4 system. Since these replacement teeth aren’t removable, you take care of them as you would your natural teeth, brushing, flossing, and rinsing daily. There are no special solutions or considerations.

The prosthetic teeth are made from durable, stain-resistant materials that are easy to keep clean, allowing you to smile with confidence again.
