Are you thinking about getting dentures to replace your natural teeth? Have you considered all your options? Dental technology has expanded your choices for replacement teeth, and it is important that you understand the benefits of each. The Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute provides a range of dental services with the expertise of Dr. Steven Saunders, Dr. Victor Saunders and Dr. Jeff Dickson. They are happy to meet with you and answer all your questions about all-on-4 dental implants.

Full Mouth Support


If the thought of installing a separate post for each tooth has made you shy away from implants, you have not heard about all-on-4 implants. This option offers total support for all upper or lower teeth with just four posts for each arch. Each post is made of titanium, which fuses with your upper and lower jaw bones, giving your new teeth the ability to function almost as well as your natural teeth.

Drawbacks of Dentures

Dentures have come a long way, but they just cannot give you the stability of implants. Dentures fit over the gum and rest on top. They are easily removed, which makes them much less secure than those that lock into implants. If you know anyone with dentures, you know they forego certain foods, either because they lack the bite strength to chew or to avoid the embarrassment of having their dentures come loose.

With implants, you can enjoy all your favorite foods without those worries. Steak, corn on the cob and many more foods are back on the menu for those who choose implants. Additional benefits of all-on-4 implants include:

  • Elimination of denture movement
  • Smooth functioning and maintenance of the jaw line
  • A more confident smile and appearance
