How Long Does All-on-4 Last?
The durability of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept has been shown throughout time. In fact, research indicates that with proper maintenance, they may survive 20 years or more. The implant screws shouldn't ever have to be changed, but the dental crown may wear out over time. While some changes may be necessary, 99% of items survive for 10 years or more without problems.
Should I Get Implant Anchored Dentures?
The jawbone contracts because it's unused when oral tooth roots are gone. As prosthetic tooth roots, dental implants halt the loss of bone and aid in preserving the jaw's volume and form.
Conventional dentures are sustained by the mouth muscles and lie on the gums. While conventional dentures are worn, the jawbone is not being used, and during these activities, the bone starts to degrade. Traditional dentures must also be adjusted regularly to match the developing jaw, whereas implant-supported dentures might never need a change.
Implant-anchored dentures are sustained by the implants. The jawbone bonds to the implants, retaining its use and enhancing biting function. Dentures supported by implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing it from wasting away. Speaking clearly might be challenging while wearing traditional dentures that move about. To produce several typical speaking sounds, teeth are utilized.
Moving dentures may prevent the tongue from moving properly. Even if the impact is small, it can lead to low self-esteem. Dentures with anchors ensure that teeth remain properly positioned and syllables are formed properly. If you pick implant-supported dentures, the overall capacity for chewing will significantly improve. Implant dentures get their support from the jawbone, as real teeth do.
Due to their close resemblance to real teeth, these implants may boost biting power. Chewy and crunchy meals, which you must forgo while using conventional dentures, are once again available. It might be challenging to remain confident while smiling, speaking, and eating after tooth loss. Dentures assisted by implants will help you regain functionality in your teeth and mouth. Patients no longer have to worry about how the teeth feel and look all the time, making it easier for them to talk, eat, and enjoy life.
Furthermore, any issues with missing teeth, including discomfort and the movement of the jaw hinge, may be treated with implant-anchored dentures. To schedule an appointment at San Tan Oral Surgery for dental implants and implant anchored dentures, give us a call at (480) 604-2592 today.
