If you’re missing teeth and have considered replacing them with dental implants, you’re probably aware that the standard implant placement process can take several months. While the end result is well worth the wait, you may be looking for a shorter-term alternative to your tooth replacement needs. Fortunately, Dr. Curry Leavitt offers the ideal treatment for patients who want to replace multiple missing teeth quickly and enjoy long-lasting results. All-On-4 dental implants can be placed in fewer office visits because they only require four implant posts to be placed. Here are four ways this treatment can change your life for the better.
Most people struggle to enjoy a variety of foods when they don’t have all their teeth. Chewy and crunchy foods can be especially difficult or even painful to consume when you have gaps in your smile. When you replace your missing teeth with dental implants, you renew your ability to comfortably eat a varied diet.
A lot of people struggle with self-confidence when they’re missing multiple teeth. Fortunately, replacing those teeth with aesthetically pleasing All-On-4 dental implants can renew your confidence and help you become proud of your smile.
Dental implants are lauded for their longevity. As long as they are placed by a skilled dentist, are accepted by the body and cared for like real teeth, they can last beyond 15 years.
Many people are surprised to discover that bone density in the jaw naturally decreases after tooth loss. This is because the jaw bone needs consistent stimulation from your tooth roots to remain strong and dense. Fortunately, the All-On-4 dental implant system incorporates four implant posts that are inserted directly into the bone and provide the same kind of stimulation your tooth roots once provided. This stimulation maintains jaw bone health and prevents degradation.
