Many people have heard of dental implants however few have heard of the increasingly popular All-on-Four dental implants available at the Brueggen Dental Implant Center in Houston. This article provides a brief highlight of the benefits of All-on-Four dental implants versus traditional implants.
Traditional dental implants usually address the replacement of one tooth or a few teeth that are side-by-side. They also involve anywhere from 8 to 10 implants all inserted on one arch. With All-on-Four dental implants the procedure requires only 4 implants each on the lower and upper arches. The All-on-Four dental implants allow for increased support by using the natural strength of the bone which provides the need for fewer dental implants when angled at the appropriate position to secure this advantage point.
In addition, traditional dental implants frequently require bone grafting which is a process that can take six or more months to complete. For most patients undergoing the All-on-Four dental implants procedure, tedious bone grafting is not required.
All-on-Four dental implants are brushed, cleaned and maintained just like natural teeth. There is no need to remove them at night as you would with dentures. There are also no messy adhesives to deal with. The All-on-Four dental implants do not create pressure on your gums therefore eliminating needless discomfort associated with dentures or traditional dental implants. You will also not have to suffer from hot and cold sensitivity in the foods and drinks that you consume. Additionally, you will have the ability to bite with improved force allowing you to enjoy all types of foods. The use of All-on-Four dental implants also prevents bone deterioration by integrating with your existing jaw bone allowing for comfort and a more natural fit.
The All-on-Four dental implant procedure boasts a published success rate of 98.2% on the lower arch and a success rate of 97-98% when used on the upper arch. In summary, the All-on-Four dental implant alternative saves you time, money, discomfort, unnecessary surgery and inconveniences that are often associated with dentures or traditional dental implants.
