If all your top or bottom teeth are missing or have to be replaced, you’re probably not the happiest person right now. There is light at the end of the tunnel, though! Enter All-on-4 dental implants. These four implants can replace all your upper or lower teeth.
Tooth Loss is More Common Than You Think
More than 35 million people in the U.S. alone are missing all of their top or bottom teeth. Some patients find dentures very uncomfortable and opt for full dental implant restoration instead. All-on-4 has changed many things. Before it existed, patients had to wait a year. Only after that could the dentist replace their teeth with implants. Why a whole year? An implant had to be fitted to each tooth.
With All-on-4, four implants hold a full set of teeth in place. You leave the practice with a full, operative set on the same day. Stability is provided due to the titanium, which the implant screws are made of. The screws are fused to the jawbone.
Who Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Appropriate For?
People with gum disease or broken, cracked, missing, or damaged teeth are good candidates for this type of surgery. Only one surgery is done. The patient receives sedation for it. If you have damaged jaw muscles or gums or have experienced trauma to your jaw or teeth, these implants can help too.
All-on-4 implants are a better option than veneers, which don’t solve problems like an improper bite or a weak jaw. They are aesthetically appealing and highly functional. Once the dentist inserts your four implants, they become part of your jawbone. They will be a durable and strong foundation for your new set of teeth.
Fusion with the jawbone ensures your implants will stay in place permanently, even if you sustain an injury. What is more, bone fusion can prevent the loss of bone in the jaw in the future. This helps maintain better oral health and a more youthful appearance of the face. Think about it: you get a beautiful new smile in just one appointment! Most patients find this to be the best surprise of all.
TruBlu Dentistry restores patients’ smiles by combining our team’s implant expertise with state-of-the-art technology. The all-inclusive full-mouth approach at TruBlu works for patients who are missing most of their teeth.
We have a highly experienced team of dentists and lab technicians. After we insert the implants and the arches, you leave our practice with a fully-functioning, natural-looking set of teeth. And all this in a matter of hours! That’s not the only advantage. Recovery only takes about a month. After this time passes, you can resume normal eating habits.
Are These Implants Right for You?
All-on-4 implants are highly durable as they fuse to the bone and can last you your whole life. They are functional and beautiful. They are also better for your jaw than traditional implants because the dentist installs them at an angle. Damaging jaw tension during chewing and biting is eliminated.
When you call to make an appointment, we’ll schedule one at your convenience. The dentist might take a scan if that is necessary. The scan will assist them in developing your treatment plan.
All-on-4 dental implants are an all-inclusive, unique treatment approach. They could change your life. To find out if this treatment is right for you, give TruBlu Dentistry a call. We will cooperate with you to find the best possible solution.
