Would Your Mouth Be a Good Candidate for All-on-4 Dentures?
Posted on 5/29/2020 by Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery
If you are in need of dentures, but either aren't a candidate for full on dental implants or you can't afford them, then All-on-4 dentures might just be the perfect solution for your particular needs. Instead of implanting multiple anchors and attaching dental implants to each one, this option involves only four main anchor points which then secure four different sections of dentures, creating a much more stable and well-fitting set than traditional options. This eliminates the need for denture pastes and nightly removal, as well as the aggravation of food particles getting stuck underneath and causing gum irritation and other problems. Here are a few things to consider concerning whether or not you would make a good candidate for this procedure:
Good General Oral Health
The first thing is that aside from needing dentures your overall oral health is in good condition. If you find yourself in need of other dental treatments for various issues, then those things will need to be addressed before pursuing All-on-4 dentures further.
Good overall Health for Surgery
In addition to good oral health, you also need to be healthy enough for minor surgery as well. This includes not being on any medications that may slow or impair healing. Once it has been decided by your general practitioner and our dental health expert that you are both in satisfactory health to undergo this procedure, as well as being a good candidate for it, we can schedule a time to get you taken care of as soon as your schedule permits.
