Understand What You’re Trying to Prevent
The most important benefit provided by dental implants is their ability to prevent or mitigate loss of bone tissue through bone resorption that occurs with dentures and bridges.. In as little as three months the early effects of bone resorption can be seen as a shortening of the profile and noticeable change in the appearance of the lower portion of the face.
While dentures provide only ten percent of the necessary force distribution required to maintain healthy jawbone, dental implants can achieve 80-90% of the required bite force.
All-on-four dentures represents a formation of dental implants which are used to support a full upper and lower set of removable dentures. This is achieved by placing two or more dental implant in each dental arches and using these as anchoring for the dentures. If you think that you may be a candidate for all-on-four dental implants, speak to your dental professional about how you can begin the process.
