All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implants in West Vancouver

All-on-4 dental implants are similar to dentures as they can be used to restore one tooth or multiple teeth. However, unlike regular dentures that must be removed and cleaned overnight, all-on-4 dental implants are permanently fitted in the mouth. Your dentist can assess if you are a good candidate for an all-on-4 implant by assessing your specific needs.

What Are the Benefits of All-on-4 Implants?

All-on-4 implants are popular with patients due to their convenience. Unlike traditional removable dentures that must be washed and cleaned after eating and then sanitized overnight, all-on-4 implants are much easier to use as they are permanently fitted in the mouth. They are also preferable as they have no impact on taste, and they don’t cause the uncomfortable gag reflex that occurs with removable dentures.

The All-on-4 Implant Procedure

In order to attach the all-on-4 denture to the jaw, your dentist will insert four posts into the jaw bone. These posts are called dental implants. Four abutment posts protrude from the implants and hold the denture in place with retaining screws. The all-on-4 implant procedure generally takes place over one or two days.
