All-on-4 dental implants represent a significant innovation for those who are missing most or all of their teeth. Offering a secure fit, jawbone loss prevention, restored chewing and speaking capabilities, and a self-confidence boost, All-on-4 dental implants are also very easy to clean. Read on for simple cleaning tips for All-on-4 dental implants.
Cleaning Your All-on-4/6 Dental Implants: 3 Simple Steps
Good oral hygiene habits are essential for keeping your mouth healthy and your All-on-4 implants clean. Fortunately, keeping them clean won’t take long and won’t require any special tools.
- Brush your teeth twice daily.
- Remove debris between the teeth with floss or a water flosser at least once a day.
- Rinse your mouth with antibacterial mouthwash daily.
Because the dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw, and the bridge of teeth is permanently fixed to your upper or lower arch, there is no need to worry about soaking your dentures or ensuring you thoroughly clean them of messy adhesives.
What are the Benefits of All-on-4/6 Dental Implants
All-on-4/6 dental implants offer patients financial, aesthetic, health, and quality of life benefits include:
Improved Oral Health
The dental implants used help to preserve jawbone integrity. In many cases, fusing the implants to the jawbone can even promote new bone growth.
Unlike traditional dentures which can slip, and slide, All-on-4/6 implants are permanent restorations that are securely anchored to the jaw.
More Cost Effective Than Individual Implants
All-on-4 dental implants are much less expensive than individual dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth.
The artificial teeth that attach to the implants do not suffer from decay, so cavities cannot develop.
If you do not clean your All-on-4/6 dental restorations, they may stain. But the artificial teeth are more stain-resistant than natural teeth because they are less porous than natural teeth. Special glaze on porcelain also helps to prevent staining.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
With All-on-4 dental implants you can once again enjoy your favorite foods, without worrying that they may cause a traditional denture to come loose.
Share Your Smile Confidently
All-on-4 implants can restore your confidence with natural-looking teeth. This empowers you to enjoy life again without being ashamed of missing teeth.
Are All-on-4/6 Dental Implants Right for You?
All-on-4/6 Dental Implants offer a terrific solution for more than 36 million Americans who do not have any teeth and the millions more who are missing most teeth. Good candidates for All-on-4 implants include those who are missing all or most teeth on the upper or lower arch. You will also need to have sufficient jawbone remaining to support the implants. If you smoke, you will need to quit before receiving dental implants. Because you will be undergoing surgery, you need to be in relatively good health.
