|Dental patients without teeth suffer from a very serious condition where there jaw bone begins to recede. Over time the receding jaw bones create a sagging face and offer few options to dentists for restorative treatments.
That's why it's so important to preserve jaw health over time and to do everything possible to maintain those bones. All on 4 implants can help in this process by helping to prevent that recession process.
Stabilize the JawAll on 4 implants are mounted right into the jaw and are actually found to stabilize the jaw and prevent it from receding nicely. Jaw atrophy is a serious issue that affects most people that lack teeth. With the right treatment, it can be minimized though. All on 4 implants put four implants throughout the upper or lower mouth.
These implants are mounted right into the jaw itself and they help maintain proper jaw health. Getting the implants put in will not only give you a beautiful smile to show off, but will help keep your jaw in tip-top shape and keep it healthy enough to work for future treatments as well if you decide to switch to something else.
Even if All on 4 dental implants don't interest you for their aesthetic benefits, we encourage our patients to consider them for jaw health.
They are worth the cost for how well they help preserve bone density and prevent atrophy. Without the implants, the jaw bones will slowly go away, and that's not something that any patient wants to happen.
Consider having implants put in to stimulate new jaw bone growth and to help preserve the healthy bone that is already there. We would love to talk to you about your implant options and what we can do for you.
All on 4 is an excellent dental procedure with numerous health and appearance benefits, but we offer other implant-based procedures as well and would be happy to discuss all the different options with you during your visit.
