It is not uncommon for adults to start losing teeth as they age. Most frequently, tooth loss occurs as a direct result of trauma or disease. Missing teeth can be easily replaced with dental implants as they fall out. However, if you are missing most of your lower teeth, single dental implants may not be the right solution for your needs. This is especially true if you have dental anxiety and are afraid to receive treatment.
Fortunately, there is a full-arch tooth replacement solution that could help restore your smile quickly and effectively. All On 4® dental implants in Jacksonville, FL use just four dental implant posts to secure a natural-looking prosthesis in the mouth.
How the All on 4® System Works
All On 4® dental implants is an affordable and convenient tooth replacement option for those who are missing most or all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch. If you want the long-term reliability of dental implants but don’t want to pay for every single tooth to be replaced by an implant, ask your dentist about All On 4® dental implants. The convenient tooth replacement system boasts the following benefits:
- Jaw bone stimulation
- Decay-resistant material
- Natural appearance

Full-arch dental implants can also improve speech and make it easier to enjoy a variety of foods. In some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary before full-arch dental implants can be placed.
