Thanks to new innovations in dentistry, patients facing tooth loss have more options now than ever. If you have multiple missing teeth, your cosmetic dentist might recommend the All-on-4 procedure. All-on-4 dental implants provide a permanent, fixed solution to tooth loss – no more fussing with ill-fitting dentures or waiting months for your dental implant procedure to be finished. Talk to your dentist about whether you’re a good candidate for this revolutionary dental technique. Keep reading to learn about candidacy requirements, the benefits, and the techniques your dentist will use for the procedure.
If you’ve lost some or all of your teeth, you could be a great candidate for the All-on-4 dental implant system. Many people who are told that they cannot have traditional implants are eligible for this technique. This system can be used for those with periodontal disease and decay that is beyond treatment, and those with bone loss in the jaw. It’s also an ideal procedure for those who have failing bridgework or dentures that are uncomfortable or ill-fitting.
There are many benefits of the All-on-4 dental implant system. Primarily, this system allows you to enjoy your smile again. The procedure boasts a high success rate with a lower overall cost. Many people prefer this treatment technique because traditional dental implants require patients to wait several months for the bone to fuse to the implant. With the All-on-4 system, you can have a beautiful smile in just one day.
During your consultation appointment, your dentist will take photos, impressions, and a three-dimensional CT scan, all of which are used to develop your customized treatment plan. During your next visit, your implants will be placed into the jawbone and your new teeth will be adjusted to fit you perfectly.
