Trading a Denture for All-on-Four Dental Implants

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you need to read this week’s blog!  We will cover the process of trading in your dentures for all-on-four dental implants.

What is All-on-Four?

All-on-Four is a revolutionary dental treatment that allows you to have a full set of teeth anchored onto four dental implants.  Your dentist attaches the new teeth to the implants, and you do not remove them.

All-on-Four works for both upper and lower teeth! 

Why Convert from Dentures to All-on-Four?

There are many advantages of All-on-Four dental implants over traditional dentures. 

No Movement or Looseness!

All-on-four dental implants act as anchors for the prosthetic set of teeth.  Because the implants have a solid attachment to the jawbone, everything is firmly connected with no movement or looseness.  That means you can chew, talk and laugh without fear of embarrassment!

No Thick Material Changing the Shape of Your Face!

All-on-four prosthetics differ from dentures in that they do not have thick areas of acrylic material extending outward under your lips, cheeks and tongue for support.  They derive all the support they need from the four dental implants.  This gets rid of any bulkiness or fullness that makes the facial structure look different. 

Nothing Removable!

You do not remove all-on-four teeth from your mouth.  Your dentist attaches the prosthesis to the four dental implants with tiny anchoring screws.  When it is time to professionally clean them, your dentist removes them and performs the cleaning process.  You have certain cleaning responsibilities at home, but you do not remove them.  You will never be without your teeth.

No Coverage of the Roof of Your Mouth

Traditional dentures cover the roof of the mouth for a suction effect.  The problem is that the acrylic covering the palate prevents the full sensation of taste, so many denture wearers feel that they cannot taste food very well.  An all-on-four prosthesis covers the U-shaped dental arch only, so you can experience the full range of tastes.

Who Should Convert from Dentures to All-on-Four?

Basically, anyone who wants to experience the advantages listed in the above section!

How Do You Convert from Dentures to All-on-Four?

The first, and most important, step is to schedule a consultation with a dental implant expert.  At Wellness Dental, our doctors are experts in dental implants and all of the treatments to restore missing teeth.  They will be able to assess your situation and discuss all of the treatment options for you, including all-on-four.  If you are not a candidate for all-on-four, they will help you find an implant solution that will work in your case.

The next step is pre-operative planning.  Our doctors place a high priority on properly planning your treatment before it ever begins.  This planning includes obtaining three-dimensional imaging of your jawbones and models of your mouth on which we will make the prosthesis.

When the day of surgery arrives, our implant surgeons will ensure your complete comfort throughout the procedure.  Then you will leave with brand new teeth attached to the new dental implants.
