As we age, tooth loss is actually quite common—more than 35 million Americans are missing all of their upper or lower teeth! If you’re one of the many people who are suffering from missing teeth, dentures is not your only option. With new All-on-4 technology, we can replace a whole row of teeth on just four implants. Intrigued? Here are a few things you should know about the All-on-4 dental implant system.
Dental implant technology has been widely praised as a comfortable, easy solution for missing or severely damaged teeth. The process is simple: your oral surgeon inserts a titanium implant into the gums that will ultimately fuse with the jawbone. Once they’re healed, they will place a custom-made crown to cover the implant. Typically, a patient will have just one implant per tooth, but now, with All-on-4, you can have a full row of teeth that attaches to just four implants! With just four implants, you can do away with dentures for good.
All-on-4 requires less support from your jawbone.
With regular dental implants, patients sometimes need a bone graft to strengthen their jawbone for the device. However, with All-on-4, the four implants are inserted at an angle. It provides more stability for your new teeth and requires less support from your jaw, so more patients are eligible to receive this groundbreaking treatment.
They feel great.
The best part about All-on-4 is that they feel just like your real teeth! You don’t have to worry about eating crunchy foods or taking them out while you sleep. Once they’re in, they’re in for good—and they feel completely natural.
Dental implants have an extremely high success rate. They fuse to your jawbone, which allows them to function just like normal, healthy teeth. With All-on-4, you can expect implants to last you for life. Just be certain to maintain a solid oral healthcare regimen to keep them in good working condition.
They’re low maintenance.
Just as All-on-4 feels like completely natural teeth, they act like natural teeth too. You don’t need to do anything particularly special to take care of them. Just floss and brush them as normal to keep them in good condition!
Results are immediate.
The process of inserting your implants and their accompanying tray of teeth takes only 2.5 hours. This means that you can have a brand new smile in just one day!
You’ll have a greater quality of life.
Most importantly, with All-on-4, your quality of life will improve drastically with this new system. You’ll no longer have to worry about how your teeth look or what you’re eating. They’ll feel completely comfortable while eating, talking, and sleeping. Patients are thrilled that they can just relax and enjoy their new smile.
