The All-on-4 dental implant system, traditional dentures, and regular dental implants offer different approaches for missing teeth:
- All-on-4 dental implants in Shenton Park use four implants to support a full arch of teeth, providing a stable, long-term replacement that stimulates the jawbone, preventing bone loss.
- Traditional dentures are removable prosthetics that sit on the gums and can sometimes move or slip, leading to potential discomfort. They do not prevent bone deterioration since they sit on top of the gums. Over time, the jawbone can resorb, leading to changes in facial structure.
- Regular dental implants are individual implants placed in the jawbone to replace single missing teeth. Each implant supports a single crown.
In terms of maintenance, All-on-4 implants and regular dental implants require standard dental care and oral hygiene, while traditional dentures need removal for cleaning and might require adjustments over time. Aesthetically, both implant systems offer a natural look and functionality, whereas dentures might have some limitations in appearance and function.
Cost-wise, traditional dentures are generally the least expensive, while the All-on-4 system can be more cost-effective than replacing multiple teeth with individual implants. However, the appropriate option varies based on individual needs, and a consultation with a dental professional at Shenton Park Village Dental is essential to determining a suitable option.
Shenton Park Village Dental offers All-on-4 dental implant procedures with an emphasis on quality dental care and exceptional patient care. These dentures, supported by artificial tooth roots, are a wonderful option for people seeking an alternative to traditional dentures.
