All-On-4 implants are a great alternative to traditional dentures, offering a more secure, permanent solution for people who have lost all or most of their natural teeth. But just how “permanent” are they? Let’s take a closer look at this revolutionary dental implant technology and find out.
All-On-4 implants are a type of dental implant that is used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They use four titanium posts as anchors and then attach a full set of permanent upper or lower teeth to them. This provides patients with the same stability and durability as traditional implants, but without the need for multiple appointments, surgeries, or lengthy healing times.
The short answer is yes! Unlike traditional dentures, which must be taken out and reinserted on a daily basis, All-On-4 implants are designed to be permanent fixtures in your mouth. The titanium posts will fuse with the jawbone over time, making them incredibly strong and stable. With proper care—including regular brushing and flossing—All-On-4 implants can last upwards of 20 years!
The biggest benefit of All-On-4 implants is their permanence; once they’re implanted, they become an integral part of your mouth and will not come loose or fall out like dentures can. According to this National Library of Medicine study, 90%–95% of implants are successful for a period of 10 years. Additionally, these implants are more comfortable than dentures due to their secure fit and natural feel. The ceramic false teeth also look more realistic than traditional dentures, giving you a beautiful smile that looks just like your natural one! Finally, All-On-4 implants require no special maintenance or care beyond regular brushing and flossing—making them easy to keep clean and healthy for years to come.
The key to making sure your All-On-4 implants last is good oral hygiene.
All On 4 implants offer an incredibly secure solution for those missing all or most of their natural teeth—and best of all, they're permanent! With proper care and maintenance, these revolutionary dental implants can provide years of reliable service with minimal upkeep requirements.
