While full dentures may be the best option for patients who are replacing an entire arch of teeth, it may not always be the most stable and secure. In fact, many patients who choose to have full dentures and use dental adhesives do not often realize that they may still be unable to enjoy all their favorite foods without worry. This is when Dr. M.H. Peters, Jr. of Houston, TX may recommend a solution called all-on-for dental implants for dentures.
Full dentures are acrylic restorations that are used to replace all the teeth within the dental arch. Patients may already be missing these teeth, or they may have remaining teeth that they choose to have extracted to prepare for full dentures. Full dentures can stay in place with natural suction or with the use of dental adhesives. However, this doesn’t always ensure a steady restoration. Dr. M.H. Peters, Jr. may suggest implant-supported dentures called all-on-fours.
What are all-on-four dental implants?
The idea behind all-on-four dental implants is that four implants are placed in the bone along the dental arch, and then are restored over the top with a full denture. The dentures snap into place with the dental implants for optimum stability and strength. Patients no longer have to use dental adhesives, and will find they are more confident when they eat their favorite foods and socialize with their friends and family. All-on-four dental implants for dentures can be a lifechanging solution for patients with full dentures.
