Why All-On-Four Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small, titanium, screw-shaped post that is inserted into the bone beneath the gum and is meant to replace the root of a missing tooth.The problem with dental implants in the past is that they could only replace one tooth, leaving people missing multiple teeth with few solutions.
All-on-four dental implants are the pinnacle of advanced, modern implant technology. They can replace an entire row of teeth with just four endosseous dental implants. This treatment is ideal for people who need to have several of their teeth removed or people that are already missing teeth but have found dentures to be impractical and uncomfortable. One of the best parts of this procedure is that it can be performed in a single day: you can come in missing teeth, and leave our office with a brand new, full, radiant smile.
What are the Benefits of All-On-Four Dental Implants?
All-on-four dental implants offer a number of unique benefits that many other procedures simply can’t match. Because they only require four dental implants for each row of teeth, this procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed in a single day, so you can leave our office with the beautiful teeth you’ve always wanted.
But don’t be fooled by the convenience of these implants — they aren’t just a quick, temporary fix for missing teeth. Since all-on-four dental implants are made of titanium, they fuse with the jaw bone naturally over time in a process called osseointegration. This means that they’ll stay securely in place in your mouth for years after your treatment, offering significantly more stability than dentures. This makes eating, drinking, and speaking easier and more comfortable.
These implants also offer our clients several aesthetic and psychological benefits. Tooth loss can make your face look sunken; a new smile from all-on-four dental implants adds a volume to your cheeks and lips that makes you look more youthful and lively. A beautiful smile can also increase an individual’s self-confidence, making them better equipped to be successful in their personal and professional lives.
