WHAT ARE ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS?
While some clients may consider tooth loss embarrassing or anxiety-provoking, it is actually quite a normal occurrence, affecting around 35 million adults in the United States. Tooth loss in both the upper and lower mouth is most common in those who are aging, as the teeth and bones in the jaw both tend to deteriorate with the passage of time.
Advances in dental technology have produced an amazing solution to the problem of tooth loss. With the “all-on-4” implant system, just four implants can replace all the teeth in each half of the mouth. These implants can be far more comfortable and easy to manage than dentures, and have become increasingly popular as a go-to solution.
Dental implants are surgically placed into the gums and underlying bone to replace missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted. Implants are alternatives to bridges, partials dentures and full dentures. Dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth as single body without any compromise to the adjacent dentition. Once the implant is stable and integrated into the bone, an abutment and a crown are fabricated to replace the missing tooth.
Dental implants generally require one surgical procedure with a healing time of approximately three to six months. In selected cases, implants might be placed and restored with temporary restoration at the same day “Teeth in a Day Protocol”.
