The All-on-4 system give patients brand new full arch implant supported teeth in a day. The implants are placed in the morning and by the end of the day you will leave with your mouth fully restored. The main difference between this and regular dentures is that the denture is fixed to the implants, meaning you cannot remove them.
By doing this you can have very small dentures that leave more room for your tongue on the lower and won’t move around. The best part for most people in the upper is that you do not have a palate in the denture. This is extremely beneficial to those people that are sensitive to gagging. Also with taste, without having your palate covered you also don’t have your taste buds covered so you can start to enjoy your food all over again.
The procedure is not for everyone, there are certain criteria that must be meet in order to be a candidate. For example a certain thickness of bone. Come in for a free consultation to discuss what your options are.
