All On 4 Dental Implants

All On 4 Dental Implants

We understand how hard life can be with missing or damaged teeth. Dentures or bridges are one solution, but they come with many disadvantages. People with dentures often worry about issues like plate slippage, so they have to avoid some of their favorite foods, like fresh fruit, corn on the cob, or a juicy steak. They often need to give up healthy activities such as swimming and dancing for fear of having their dentures slip, over even worse, fall out. Dentures are also a chore to take care of, and they tend to be uncomfortable for many people. They can also break or get lost. This affects a person’s true quality of life, making it difficult to manage many daily activities.

Although dental crowns are often a solution, they are not always a viable choice. Those with missing teeth have problems chewing and may feel self-conscious about having gaps in their smile. Over time, facial muscles tend to relax, which can cause sunken cheeks and changes in the shape of your face. Life simply is not the same. However, over the years, patients had to undergo a lengthy, difficult and expensive process if they needed to have a large amount of teeth replaced with dental implants. Now with such advances in dental technology, procedures like all on 4 dental implants are relatively straight forward with minimal pain.

What are all on 4 dental implants ?

All on 4 dental implants are a newly available procedure to replace a full arch of teeth in one go. This revolutionary dental implant procedure allows implant surgeons to provide a natural looking fixed set of replacement teeth in just one day, with only four implants necessary. Although in some cases more implants can be used, a minimum of 4 implants is needed in order to support a fixed dental bridge.

Few advantages of All-on-4 Dental Implants:

Restores Full Arch of Teeth: All-on-4 dental implants are designed to replace a full arch of teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. This means that patients can regain their ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence, restoring their quality of life.

Fewer Implants Required: Unlike traditional dental implant methods, All-on-4 uses only four implants per arch to support a full set of prosthetic teeth. This approach reduces the number of implants needed, making the treatment less invasive and more cost-effective.

Immediate Results: All-on-4 implants offer the advantage of immediate functionality. In most cases, patients can receive a temporary set of teeth on the same day as the implant surgery. This means you don’t have to go without teeth during the healing period, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.

Bone Preservation: All-on-4 implants are strategically placed in areas with the highest bone density, often eliminating the need for additional bone grafting procedures. By utilizing the available bone, this technique can preserve and stimulate natural bone growth, ensuring long-term stability.

Improved Facial Aesthetics: The loss of teeth can lead to sagging facial muscles, giving a prematurely aged appearance. All-on-4 implants provide support to the facial structure, restoring proper facial volume and improving overall aesthetics.
