How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
All-On-4 dental implants are comprised of titanium posts that mimic the natural tooth root. Designed to stimulate your jawbone, these unique restorations are capable of supporting a custom-made denture that is put into place to restore an entire row of missing teeth. During the planning phase of treatment, your implant dentist in Fairfield will determine where to place each post to ensure maximum support. Typically, two implants are placed toward the back of the mouth at 45-degree angles while the other two posts are positioned toward the front of the mouth, ensuring a stable foundation for your future denture.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?
If you’ve lost all your teeth, there is a good chance you will be eligible to receive All-On-4. Even if much of your jawbone has deteriorated over time, the strategic positioning of the four implants can make it possible for you to enjoy the same great benefits of those individuals living with traditional implant-retained dentures.
But it is important that you be in good general oral health, as poor lifestyle habits (i.e., smoking) and gum disease can make it difficult, if not impossible, to ensure a successful procedure. Should we discover any potential problems, it will be necessary that you have them treated before moving forward with All-On-4.
Benefits of All-On-4 Implants
When learning you are eligible to receive All-On-4, you can expect to experience a vast array of benefits, some of which include:
- An easy-to-maintain restoration that doesn’t require you to remove it to keep it clean. Unlike traditional dentures that must soak at night, All-On-4 dental implants in Fairfield are secured in place, making it easier to brush.
- A comfortable solution that is natural in appearance and functionality.
- The ability to eat the foods you love because of the increased bite force you will have.
- Improved oral health because of the continuous stimulation your jawbone will receive by your implants.
- A more youthful appearance because of how your implants will support your facial structure.
All-On-4 vs. Traditional Implants
Patients who receive traditional dental implants (or an implant-retained denture) can expect to have between 6 and 8 dental implants surgically placed along the jawbone. Not only does this mean more money because of the additional posts, but it also means a longer recovery time. With All-On-4, you can forgo the extra implants and bone graft by having two of your posts angled for maximum support. Also, by choosing All-On-4, you will receive a temporary denture immediately following your surgical procedure. This will allow you to start enjoying a fully restored smile while you wait for your finalized restoration to be created.
If you want a quicker solution that produces immediate results and costs less than implant-retained dentures, you can’t go wrong with All-On-4.
