The newly announced All-on-4 treatment offers a long-term solution to seniors dissatisfied with traditional dentures, and edentulous seniors who want dentures that look, feel, and function like real teeth. Minuk Digital Denture & Implant Centre in Winnipeg offers two types of implant-supported snap-on dentures: bar-retained over-dentures and removable, ball/locator-retained over-dentures, each of which gives the individual 95 percent of their natural bite force compared to the 0.5 – 5 percent bite force traditional dentures provide.

Many individuals find traditional dentures uncomfortable and often impractical because their diets are limited to foods that are soft and easy to chew. Implant-supported dentures, or All-on-4s, function like natural teeth. With this prosthetic restoration, denture wearers can enjoy a healthier, more varied diet without worrying the denture will dislodge or hurt.
“With a traditional denture, your bite force is reduced because it is supported by the bone structure it sits upon. If there is little bone, the denture is likely to move around. After 15 years, your bite force will decrease by over 99 percent. Leaving you with very few good options,” says Manny Minuk, Denturist at Minuk Digital Denture & Implant Centre. “With All-on-4s, you can eat whatever you want.”
Dentures held in place by dental implants provide greater stability and convenience, they’re also more comfortable than traditional dentures, improve an individual’s ability to speak, and prevent bone loss.
Dental implants stimulate the jaw and help preserve the bone, supporting the natural facial structure. This is because the dental implant placed in the jawbone acts like a root, preventing jaw degradation or bone resorption.
The All-on-4 restorative system is not removable without the assistance of a qualified professional. There are, however, other implant solutions that are removable without assistance such as bar-retained or ball/locater-retained dentures on implants. All of which can be discussed with the Denturists at Minuk’s.
Minuk Digital Denture & Implant Centre is Canada’s largest denture clinic. With over 100,000 dentures created since 1977, Manny Minuk and his fellow Denturists have a denture solution for every budget and every unique restorative requirement.
