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.
