Most people with missing teeth struggle with eating and enjoying their favorite foods. Instead, they shift to small bites, soft textures, and processed meals that are less healthy for them. Sometimes they find that eating with traditional dentures can also cause discomfort and embarrassment, limiting their food options. Fortunately, modern dental technology offers a solution that provides a stable, long-lasting solution to missing teeth: All-on-4 implants.
At Eastport Dental in Mesa, AZ, Dr. Huynh offers life-changing All-on-4 implant treatment, which offers numerous advantages over traditional dentures. Including the way you eat. And yes, you can pretty much eat anything you want once you invest in dental implants.
Implants are Extremely Strong
The main reason why you can eat what you want with implants, is because dental implants are just as strong as natural teeth. In fact, implants are made from a biocompatible material that is designed to integrate with your jawbone and mimic the function of natural teeth. This means that once the implant is placed and healed, it can support the pressure of biting and chewing just like a natural tooth.
Structurally speaking, implants are physically stronger than natural teeth. Really. That’s why we’re able to use as few as four implants to support an entire arch of teeth.
The Way They’re Supported in Your Mouth
All-on-4 implants are a special type of dental implant treatment that can restore an entire row of teeth in your upper or lower jaw using just four strategically placed implants. This is a significant improvement over traditional dentures, which rest on top of the gums and can become loose or fall out.
With All-on-4 implants, the implants are placed at an angle to maximize the support and stability of the restoration. This means that the implant-supported teeth can distribute the pressure of biting and chewing evenly across the jaw, providing a more comfortable and secure fit.
Rather than your biting pressure being applied to a full mouth “plate,” the streamlined appliance follows the natural curve of your smile. You can almost think of All-on-4 implants like an extended dental bridge. With a more hybrid design, All-on-4 frees up the roof of your mouth to better enjoy the flavor and textures of your food without limiting your biting or chewing abilities.
No Rocking, Rubbing, or Slipping
One of the most significant benefits of All-on-4 implants is that they allow you to eat what you want without any dietary restrictions. Unlike traditional dentures, which can slip and slide when you eat certain foods, All-on-4 implants provide a stable foundation that allows you to chew with confidence. You won’t have to avoid your favorite foods or worry about your dentures coming loose while you eat. Nothing is off-limits, even corn on the cob and steak.
Since implants are permanently fused with the bone that supports them, they’re just as stable as natural teeth. Your prosthesis won’t tilt, rock, or come out of place while you’re eating (or talking.) Everything is permanently anchored and won’t come out unless it’s purposely removed by a dentist.
What if I Already Wear Dentures and Want Implants?
If you currently wear traditional dentures, upgrading to All-on-4 implants can be a life-changing investment. Not only will you better enjoy the functional and cosmetic benefits of having permanent new “teeth,” but you’ll also avoid the hassle of denture adhesive, cleaning solutions, or having to adjust your diet whenever you’re dining out with your family. All-on-4 implants can be cleaned just like natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing (we highly recommend an electric toothbrush and water flosser.)
