With the All-On-4 or All-On-6 type of implant, instead of a single tooth being afixed to the implant a hybrid denture is fashioned and placed on top of the implants. This hybrid denture looks like a full set of teeth and they function like a full set of teeth. When they are placed on top of the implants, they are then screwed down into the implant and become a permanent solution. This is unlike dentures that have to be removed and placed in a glass every night.
With dental implants you can taste your food better, chew your food better and have a beautiful and natural looking smile just as if you had your real teeth. You will also be able to speak better and chew your food properly.
Another reason dental implants are such an effective treatment option for missing teeth is that it helps prevent bone loss. This is not the case with dentures, bridges or partials. By not replacing your teeth with an implant it can result in loss of gum tissue, misaligned teeth, and misalignment of the facial bones. It can literally make you look older than you really are.
