The loss of some of your teeth can alter your smile, interfere with your ability to chew and digest your food, effect your speech and even lead to other health problems. The Periodontic Association of America estimates that about 175 million Americans have lost one or more teeth, and that number is likely to grow. The traditional solution for multiple tooth loss was conventional dentures. These, of course, remain in use today, but they can slip, alter your speech, cause discomfort, and aren’t always up to the challenge of biting and chewing every food an individual might want to enjoy.
The good news is that in recent years there have been remarkable advances in the field of tooth replacement to restore a person’s smile, ability to speak with confidence, and ability to properly chew and taste foods due to the open palette on the Ao4 denture. Today, however, there is another option referred to as the All on 4 which in many cases provides a superior solution to conventional dentures.
