When it comes to replacing your teeth, there are many options available. One of the options for total tooth replacement is the "All-on-Four" denture program, which combines the cost-effectiveness of dentures with the stability and permanence of dental implants. At Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, MD, Dr. Frederick Asuncion is a qualified and experienced provider of this amazing treatment. But how does it work? Get the details from your general dentist here!
What is All-On-Four?
All-On-Four is the trademarked name of a treatment that your Frederick general dentist uses to keep denture plates stable and comfortable with just four dental implants on either the upper or lower ridges of your mouth. Instead of relying on messy, temporary paste, All-On-Four's patented implants attach to the denture plates to keep them from slipping or needing daily removal.
How does All-On-Four work?
It might surprise you that an entire denture can be held in place with just four dental implants. The precise placement of these implants, which look like miniature screws, helps keep the entire restoration stable, and the permanence of the implants ensures that you'll maintain your dental health for a long time. That's because implants actually replace the function of the roots of natural teeth: keeping the jawbone stable. Traditional removable dentures, which simply rest on the gum ridges, can't do this, which causes the jawbone to recede by tiny increments that, over time, will cause dentures to stop fitting properly. All-On-Four from your Frederick general dentures prevents jawbone recession, giving you a long-lasting dental restoration that looks and feels great!
