They’re the next best thing to natural teeth. With dentures on one side of the spectrum and natural teeth on the other, dental implants fall much nearer to natural teeth than to conventional, adhesive-supported dentures. Take a look at just how favorable All on 4® dental implants compare to natural teeth in appearance, function and feel.
Like other styles of dental implant restorations, All on 4 dental implants near the reliability of natural teeth by emulating natural teeth.
The restoration, be it a dental crown or overdentures, is half of the equation. Dental implants are the other half.
Take a look at the parts of a dental implant to find out how they emulate natural teeth:
The implant post – usually made of titanium or a titanium alloy, the implant post is like the roots of a tooth. Just as a tooth takes root in the jawbone, dental implants are implanted into the jawbone.
The abutment – a connector of sorts, the abutment attaches to the top of the implant post and sits just above the gum line.
With All on 4, overdentures are affixed to the abutments to leverage the full force of the jawbone for biting and chewing food.
While the prosthetic teeth of dentures may look realistic, the propensity for dentures adhesives to break down can quickly give away the fact that the teeth aren’t actually natural. With All on 4 dental implants, there’s no change your restorations will slip out of place. The result: Your teeth will look natural whether your eating, speaking or saying cheese for the camera.
Because your teeth will be held firmly in place, they’ll feel natural in your mouth. And when they cut through food just about as well as your natural teeth would have, it’ll be easy to forget that your restorations aren’t actually natural teeth.
