How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
All-on-4 dental implants are designed to attach to a series of implants strategically placed throughout the mouth. Once our dentists determine if you are eligible for this specific treatment, they’ll schedule you for surgery to have the implants placed as well as begin creating your custom-made denture. Small incisions are made inside the gum tissue, then tiny holes are created in the jaw bone for the implants to fit. After the implants are placed and the gum tissue is stitched shut, the restoration can be attached.
Am I A Candidate For All-On-4 Implants?
More patients than ever are eligible for dental implants, but it’s important to keep in mind that some patients may need preparatory treatments before they can safely receive them. For example, if you have been missing teeth for a very long time and your jaw bone has broken down as a result, bone grafting may be needed. Furthermore, if you have untreated gum disease or tooth decay, these dental concerns will need to be handled as well.
What Are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?
With All-on-4 dental implants, you can expect all the same benefits you’d find with traditional dental implant placement and more. For example, you can eat the foods you want thanks to the improved biting strength provided by prosthetic tooth roots. This is because dental implants stimulate your bone tissue once they are placed. Furthermore, your restoration is fixed, so you can practice oral care normally as well. There’s no need to rely on denture adhesive to hold your denture in place and you can expect the implants to remain healthy in your mouth for 30 years or longer when you practice routine at-home care.
All-On-4 Vs. Traditional Dental Implants
While traditional dental implants require four to six months of healing before a restoration can be placed, All-on-4 maximizes the amount of bone tissue already present in the jaw. This makes it safe to attach a restoration directly to the implants soon after the surgical portion of treatment is completed. With that said, All-on-4 does require multiple appointments to effectively plan your unique case, even though the surgical and restorative phases are performed back-to-back.
