For some people, a full set of dentures can be clunky and difficult to maintain. What if you could have your dentures put in once, and once only? What if it could be done in a day? Unlike typical dentures, All-on-4 dental implants are a permanent set of teeth that look and feel just like natural teeth, and exist somewhere between a traditional denture and a tooth implant.
A typical denture uses your soft gum tissue for support, which gradually becomes unstable and uncomfortable with the passage of time. Implants traditionally are done per tooth as needed, and a full set of implants can be incredibly costly and time consuming. Meanwhile, All-on-4 are sets of full dentures that connect to just four implants in your gums and remain there as your new set of teeth. It’s that simple.
Since this treatment makes use of only four dental implants, it takes as little as one to three days to complete. You will enjoy a full set of new teeth in almost no time at all. This kind of full mouth implant not only restores the cosmetic appearance of your face, but also enhances the functionality of your teeth. These new teeth can be brushed like normal teeth and are far more comfortable than a typical denture.

Facts About Fluoride

A Tip for the Sweet Tooth
If you cannot avoid sweets between meals, choose a snack with less sugar like nuts and seeds, peanut butter, popcorn, or even plain yogurt. Sticky sweets that stay in your mouth for longer periods of time like toffee or hard candies should be avoided as snacks.
Caring For Your Crowns
With proper care, a good quality crown could last up to 8 years or longer. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to avoid collection of debris around the restoration or excess plaque.
