Will my All-on-Four implant supported teeth be uncomfortable and push on my gum tissue like a partial or a full denture does?
NO!! This is one of the advantages of the All-on-Four Dental Implant technique versus old fashioned dentures. Your new teeth will be fixed in place (does not come out after meals or at night). The beautiful new teeth are supported totally by the dental implants and will not slip, lift or fall out. The teeth do not rest on the gum tissue and rub sore sports like old fashioned dentures. Old fashioned dentures actually accelerate bone loss. With new teeth from the all-on-four dental implant technique chewing forces are transmitted through the implants into the bone. This causes stimulation and preservation of the bone tissue.
Will people be able to see the space between my All-on-four teeth and my gum tissue?
Dr. Nugent will evaluate and customize your smile line so that the lips hide the base of your new teeth. Teeth shape and supporting “gum tissue acrylic” will be made so that your new smile is beautiful and natural.
