Do you feel too insecure to share your smile with the world because you have damaged or missing teeth? Has your poor oral state made you lose confidence in important situations? Don’t fret! There is good relief. The evolution of dental implant technology is here, and it will change your life.
The availability of All-On-4 dental implants now makes it possible for people with a hopeless dentition or lost teeth to smile and brighten their world once again. These issues are now easy to fix at an affordable price.
What’s All-On-4 Dental Implant?
When patients are missing a significant number of teeth, there is no quicker or better solution than the Teeth in 1 Day, All-on-Four® procedure. After your consultation and with the initial steps set-up, your arch reconstructive surgery takes less time than a drive to Los Angeles. You come in the morning and leave by the mid afternoon with a brand new, functional and beautiful new arch of teeth.
While the traditional dental implant procedure uses as many as eight to ten implants for each arch reconstruction, All-on-Four® uses only four. The secret to its success is the 45-degree angle of the rear implants. As this implant is longer, it is stronger and able to readily fuse into available bone not usable with older dental implants, saving you the additional step of bone grafting.
What Are the Distinctive Attributes of All-On-4 Dental Implants?
All-On-4 dental implants are a treatments option that allows a full arch of prosthetic teeth to be supported on four dental implants. Some of the implants are placed at an angle at the back of the mouth. This is done to avoid areas that would otherwise require bone grafting.
There are different methods of replacing missing or damaged teeth such as a dental implant, a dental bridge, and dentures. Each method comes with a unique set of advantages and shortcomings. Patients should analyze their options with the help of their oral surgeon.
Although dentures are relatively affordable, they come with a risk of gum and mouth irritation and can be difficult to maintain as patients are required to remove and clean them regularly. Dental implants solution is generally regarded as the best and most favorable restorative option for missing or decayed teeth.
In many cases, oral surgeons suggest dental implants as the best option for patients with missing teeth who want to restore their dentition for health and aesthetic purposes. Implants involve fitting a small titanium screw inside the jawbone of the patient to provide stable support for their artificial teeth. It requires a minor surgery usually under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Of all the options available for restorative treatments of missing teeth, implants have proven to be the most effective and durable.
With the All-On-4 technique, implants are placed in such a way that you don’t need a separate dental implant for each of your damaged or missing teeth. This technologically advanced method of full-arch restoration reduces cost and time spent in the periodontist’s office.
The Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants
- Full-arch restoration
- Simpler procedure and shorter installation times compared to individual implants
- Prevents further bone loss
- Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants and utilizing available bone instead
Why Do You Need the All-On-4 Treatment Method?
It can be scary to get implants for the first time. Most of that fear is probably due to the uncertainty, so here is the step-by-step process for getting an All-On-4 dental implant.
First, your dentist will want to make sure your comfortable, so either local or general anesthesia will be administered.
Second, the dentist or surgeon will prepare your mouth for the implants, which involves removing your remaining teeth that are failing. They will then remove any diseased or infected tissue from your jaw and gums.
Next, they will begin the implantation process. This means they will insert the titanium screws into your jawbone. Most likely, they will place two implants toward the front of your mouth and two towards the back of your mouth so the “anchors” can evenly bare the force of the denture.
After the implants have been placed, they will thoroughly clean the surgical sites and suturing all the incisions. Then you’ll be taken to a recovery room where you can relax and take time to wake up from the anesthesia.
