All-on-Four Dental Implants
Missing teeth can affect your quality of life, hindering the way you speak and eat. Many people completely missing all their teeth, find it difficult to perform many daily tasks a full set of teeth would otherwise easily handle. This implant procedure provides a solution for patients seeking a full restoration or smile makeover.
The Benefits of All-on-Four
As the name would suggest, All-on-Four implants set a full upper or lower arch on just four implants. Whereas dentures would simply rest on gums, dental implants integrate into the jawbone, allowing for sturdy functionality of the teeth. Through a process called osseointegration, the titanium post will fuse to the bone, reinforcing the bone and preventing bone loss associated with missing teeth. It is a solution for patients who would otherwise be ineligible for dental implants due to bone deficiency.
All-on-Four dental implants allow patients the freedom to speak and eat freely without the restrictions traditional dentures would otherwise prevent individuals from doing. If properly cared for, implant-supported dentures can last a lifetime.
Reliable Dental Service
The high success rate of this procedure makes it a preferred procedure among dentists. As an added bonus, patients opting for the All-on-Four procedure can look forward to receiving a full set of teeth the same day as the implant procedure, meaning patients no longer need to wait six to nine months to heal.
Best Candidates for All-on-Four Implants
Patients looking for additional support to prevent their dentures from moving can look to the implant supported option of All-On-Four to provide stability and comfort to their bite. Moreover, while dental implants can benefit a large population of edentulous patients, patients especially looking for treatment after being unqualified for conventionally oriented implant-supported dentures due to insufficient jawbone density can potentially be eligible for the All-on-Four procedure.
