What Are All On 4 Dental Implants?
Dental technology has come a long way in a very short time. This system uses a set of four individual dental implants that act as a platform for a complete denture to be placed on top. The denture is secured in place using screws that attach the denture to the individual dental implants. This gives much needed security and possibility for advanced esthetics over traditional removable dentures.
All On 4 Dental Implants Benefits
Provides A Permanent Solution
The all on 4 dental implant system provides a permanent solution to your tooth loss problem. Since the denture is anchored directly to the dental implants the whole system can give you the confidence and security to smile and eat whatever you want.
Easy To Clean And Maintain
The all on 4 dental implant system and additional denture is designed for easy maintenance. Unlike traditional dentures, all that is necessary is basic oral hygiene techniques. Cleaning the system takes minimal effort for maximum results.
Daily cleaning routine for the All On Four Implants
You need to brush your teeth three times a day as if they were your original teeth. You need to use a soft toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste. Ideally you want to brush after every meal but we understand that is not always possible. Brushing at least twice a day is a must.
#2 Use Water Pik
Food can get stuck between your fixed bridge and the abutments or between the implant and the gums. Therefore, water flossing is as important as brushing.
The water floss, like Waterpik, helps us remove all the food particles that could remain in our mouth.
We always recommend the use of WaterPik at least once a day. The Waterpik is a pressurized water floss that helps cleaning the parts your brushing and flossing can not reach.
#3 Use Antibacterial Mouthwash
We recommend antibacterial, alcohol-free mouthwash. It not only gives you fresh breath, but it also helps us clean and keep bacteria under control in your mouth.
#4 Maintain Regular Dental Visits
We recommend visiting the dentist’s office every six months to deep clean your denture.
The dentist unscrews the fixed bridge and cleans into the housings, and polish it too. They will also check the gums and tissue around the implants.
No Denture Adhesive Required
Having the denture anchored in place using the 4 dental implants removes the need for denture adhesive. Not having the denture adhesive also makes it much easier to keep clean and lowers risk of dental infection over time.
Ability To Eat Anything You Please
This gives freedom to eat a nutritious meal and also give you the confidence to enjoy your favorite foods in public. With traditional removable dentures, this is not always the case. They move around and shift based on what you are trying to eat, This leads to poor nutrition over time which will affect your overall general health.
Improved Confidence And Self Esteem
All-on-4 dental implants will restore your beautiful smile. It will prevent further deterioration of your jaw bone and facial structure. Since this is a permanent solution, there will be no bone and root system degradation. You will always feel confident and full of semf esteem with this implant system.
