All-on-4 Implants Make it Possible for edentulous patients or denture wearers to get fixed dentures. If you want to restore your smile completely, this new innovation makes it possible for you to do so.
What are All-on-4 Implants?
All-on-4 implants make it possible for edentulous to receive a full set of teeth to restore their lost teeth. This dental treatment provides a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. A traditional implant features one titanium screw, which is inserted into the gum. This makes it possible to add a single restoration to the screw. If you have an all-on-4 implant, however, 4 titanium posts are placed at specific points into the jaw.
They are designed to attach permanent dentures at those 4 spots, thereby creating a seamless, natural-looking smile. The prosthesis stays in the mouth and looks just like real teeth. When you choose all-on-4 implants, you can realize a number of benefits. For example, you can replace missing teeth in only a day after surgery. Also, the implants will not shift or loosen like removable dentures. The cost is less than replacing each individual tooth as well. Patients who opt for all-on-4 implants do not need to have bone grafting.
Who Is a Good Candidate for All-on-4 Implants?
This dental option proves to be ideal for anyone who needs to have a full set of teeth replaced. Most patients are fully happy with the results. However, with that being said, you should still go over all the details of the process with us first. For example, you will not be able to see how the teeth look or feel before you get the implants. Also, we cannot place the implants in the molar area of the mouth. That is where you exert the most force when you bite. With these two factors in mind, all-on-4 implants still offer a permanent dental solution. In fact, success rates, after 10 years, stand around 94%.
