People have been finding different ways to replace missing teeth for centuries – as far back as the 7th century BC, believe it or not! Fortunately, modern dentures are much different those the early versions. In fact, today’s dental prosthetics are more comfortable, durable, secure-fitting and natural-looking than ever before.
One of the most advanced permanent denture options is one that Dr. Bowcutt is pleased to provide to his Cedar Park, TX, area patients: All-on-4® prosthetics.
What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is a dental prosthetic that provides a patient with a full set of permanent, non-removable teeth using only four dental implants. This cutting-edge technique is much less invasive than other methods – such as that involved in supplying the patient with a full set of implants, which requires multiple oral surgery procedures. Dr. Bowcutt can usually complete the implant procedure in a single visit to our Cedar Park office.
Advantages of All-on-4®
There are many advantages that come with All-on-4® prosthetics, including the following:
- All-on-4® provides the patient with a full set of permanent teeth that can’t be removed. This means the patient can care for their replacement teeth in exactly that same way that they would with their natural teeth.
- Because All-on-4®prosthetics are anchored in place, there’s none of the slipping problems that patients can experience with dentures. That means that patients can enjoy whatever foods they like, and never have to face the embarrassment of dentures moving or slipping when they speak.
- All-on-4® prosthetics look and function just like natural teeth – and they feel like natural teeth too! These prosthetics are extremely comfortable and natural feeling.
Thanks to this remarkable technology, people can enjoy all the benefits of having a fully functional set of teeth without the hassle or worry involved with dentures or partials.
