All-On-4 dental implants were created as a means of replacing all of the teeth on either the bottom or the top of the mouth. This is possible due to a technological advance in dental implants. Tooth loss among adults has become extremely common. This is partially due to the aging process. There are in excess of 35 million individuals in the United States missing all of their lower or upper teeth. Instead of trying to cope with the hassle and discomfort of dentures, a lot of people are choosing restoration through All-On-4 dental implants.
All-On-4 dental implants consist of four dental implants and a full arch of teeth. A traditional dental implant is a small screw made of titanium fitted inside the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. The implant is placed during minor surgery. Once this process is complete, a crown is attached to provide the individual with a functional and realistic looking prosthetic tooth. A separate implant is not necessary for every single missing tooth. All that is required to restore your smile are four implants placed in specific areas on the bottom and the top of your mouth.
These implants are made from titanium enabling them to fuse to the bone. This essentially makes the implant a part of the bone. This provides a lasting strong foundation to support the new teeth. The bone fusion does a lot more than permanently fix the implant in place, it stops anymore bone loss within the jaw. This provides better oral health and a younger-looking facial structure.
The New and Improved Smile
It is possible to get a new and radiant smile in the course of just one day due to the new technology of the All-On-4 dental implants combined with the expertise of our cosmetic dentist. This only requires one day for the majority of people missing most of their teeth.
Once the procedure has been completed, the individual has a fully functioning and natural-looking set of teeth along with a beautiful smile. The new smile feels and looks fantastic, but it is only temporary. The dental implants need a period of time to fuse to the jawbone and heal before the temporary teeth can be replaced with a customized and permanent smile. This provides a natural look and eliminates the issues so often related to wearing dentures.
