Taking the dental field by storm, All-on-4 dental implants are essentially a full arch fixed implant bridge that’s supported by 4-6 implants. For the million of Americans with missing teeth, this enormous advancement in dental implant technology is something to celebrate.
Consider the dental implant, which consists of a small titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The implant replaces the root portion of a missing tooth, and fuses with the bone in the jaw over time. A crown is attached to the implant, serving as a functional and real-looking prosthetic tooth. Yet, the remarkable news is that when individuals have many missing teeth, they do not need a dental implant for every missing tooth. Thanks to the all-on-4 system, an individual needs only 4 distinctly placed dental implants on the top as well as the bottom. These implants support an entire arch of teeth, fully restoring a person’s smile. As an added benefit, while the implant fuses with existing jawbone, it prevents future bone loss within the jaw and helps individuals maintain a youthful appearance.
The Best That Modern Dentistry Has To Offer – In Record Time!
There’s no question that the all-on-4 implant denture system is the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement. Patients can benefit from a newly restored smile that is permanently secured in place, giving them the confidence to eat, speak and laugh again. There are no sticky adhesives to deal with, and no need to have dentures relined. What’s more, the advanced denture system requires less existing bone structure, meaning more patients can benefit. Perhaps the greatest reward of all—the advanced technology and imaging allows for same day results in many cases. This is because the all-on-4 process is less invasive than previous implant procedures. Think about it—you can replace missing teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted in record time!
