Dental implants are popular because they restore your smile and its function. Implants act like roots for new teeth in the form of crowns, bridges, and sometimes dentures. If you’re missing most or all of your teeth, you have an option to connect teeth replacements to four sturdy implants.
John P Freeman, MD, DDS, FACS, can give you brand new teeth in a day by placing four evenly spaced implants in your jawbone. At his self-named private practice in Katy, Texas, Dr. Freeman can discuss your treatment options, including All-on-4® dental implants.
As you weigh your options for replacing your teeth, Dr. Freeman urges you to consider the advantages offered by All-on-4 dental implants. Here are five benefits.
Losing your teeth can make it increasingly difficult to pronounce certain letter sounds and words. In fact, you rely on your teeth for more sounds than you might think, and speaking without certain teeth can result in a lisp, slurred words, or other speech impediments.
All-on-4 dental implants function like your original teeth. That means your denture won’t shift while you speak.
Biting and chewing feel natural with All-on-4 dental implants. There is a short adjustment period after placement, but they will feel natural quickly.
Dr. Freeman ensures your upper and lower replacement teeth fit together perfectly and the pressures of your bite are evenly distributed across your jaw. With stable implants, you retain a strong bite force that allows you to bite into apples and other crunchy favorites.
All-on-4 implants are designed to last a lifetime. Thanks to a process called osseointegration, your jawbone naturally fuses with the implants, so they become permanent fixtures in your body. The implants also stimulate your jawbone to prevent jawbone recession or weakening.
A significant draw of All-on-4 dental implants is that you get an entirely updated smile in just one day. That is why the treatment is also titled, “teeth in a day.” While traditional dental implantation involves at least two surgeries over several months, with All-on-4, you receive a temporary prosthesis the same day as the implant surgery.
You might be more likely to consider All-on-4 knowing that the process is fast and convenient. You simply return to Dr. Freeman’s office for a follow-up visit after treatment so he can verify that your jawbone has fused with the titanium implants before attaching your permanent dentures.
Many difficulties result from losing your teeth. Speech issues and chewing problems aside, lacking teeth alters your appearance. You might feel embarrassed to reveal a grin with missing teeth.
With custom dentures attached to All-on-4 dental implants, you retain your facial structure with a fully intact smile. Dr. Freeman ensures the denture looks completely natural.
