Tooth loss is more than a cosmetic concern. Having gaps in your smile puts additional strain on your remaining teeth, leading to fractures, damage, or even more tooth loss. Missing teeth can also make it painful and difficult to enjoy fresh, healthy foods integral to a balanced diet. Perhaps the most concerning impact of tooth loss is that it can eventually lead to bone loss in the jaw. 

Also, due to the lack of use over time, the tissue can atrophy and result in a sunken or slack facial appearance. Tooth loss may seem like a losing battle, but denture implants in Foothill Ranch can save your smile and stop many of these concerns in their tracks. 

What Are All-on-Four Dental Implants?

All-on-Four dental implants, also called denture implants, are an entire arch of teeth secured by four titanium dental implants permanently placed in the jaw. The beauty of the full arch is that you don’t need a dental implant for every missing tooth. Instead, your dentist precisely places four implants in the upper and lower arches to restore your complete smile. 

The Benefits of Implant-Retained Dentures

There are many benefits of having dental implants, many of which most patients find improve their health and quality of life. 

All-on-Four dental implants in Foothill Ranch are an excellent tooth replacement option because:

  • They can permanently replace your missing teeth. 
  • They don't slip or shift in the mouth like traditional dentures can. 
  • They are low-maintenance and easy to clean. 
  • They are faster than traditional dental implants because you can get a full set of teeth in one procedure. 
  • They prevent bone loss and stimulate the jawbone. 
  • They support your facial muscles, which makes you look more youthful and energized. 
  • They function, feel, and look just like natural teeth. 
  • They are durable, reliable, and designed to last for a lifetime. 

Studies have shown that after ten years, long-term success for dental implants is more than 94 percent, making it a highly favorable tooth replacement option for patients of various ages.
