Missing teeth affect your speech, your ability to eat your favorite foods and also your self-confidence. Missing teeth are also a contributing factor to several other dental health problems. It is essential that patients with missing teeth should have them replaced as early as possible to prevent further issues.
Advancements in dental science and technology has led to the most trusted solution for missing teeth known as All-on-4 dental implants. This solution has been proven to be very advantageous over other treatment options.
What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
The All-on-4 system uses a set of fixed dental implants which are fixed to the patient’s jaw. These implants hold the replacement teeth firmly in place. The All-on-4 fixed implants are proven to be more reliable and secure than traditional methods. Hence All-on-4 dental implants are also referred to as ‘implant supported dentures’.
In order to place the implants, the dental surgeon carefully analyses oral cavity for proper alignment. It is to be noted that the dental implants used in the All-on-4 treatment are slightly different from those used in regular implants. The most effective arrangement is two near the front of the mouth and two more inserted towards the back of the mouth, in the molar area. Once the implants are securely in place, the implant supported dentures can be used immediately, providing a fast recovery time and a quick return to your daily life and usual routines.
All-on-4 dental implants provide a natural feeling for the patient while chewing or talking because of the solid physical connection between the implants and the replacement teeth.
