Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures
Dental implants can be used effectively to permanently secure a denture or partial denture for superior results when compared to traditional techniques and options. This is accomplished with a procedure known as All On Four®, which provides several key benefits for both overall health and lifestyle:
- Reduce bone loss and shrinkage in the jaw
- No slipping or fear of teeth “falling out”
- Enables a healthy, varied diet
- Normal speech for confidence in social settings
- No need for the use of daily adhesives
