All-On-Four Dental Implants
Tooth loss is a serious oral health issue that is more common than you might believe. When tooth loss occurs, it can ruin the look of a person’s smile, and it can make routine tasks like chewing food and speaking incredibly difficult. To make matters worse, untreated tooth loss can lead to additional issues such as facial structure loss, unwanted tooth shifts, severe bite imbalances and jawbone deterioration. Therefore, it is very important to seek treatment for tooth loss as early as possible.
When an entire arch of teeth is missing, a highly effective and efficient way to replace them is with all-on-four dental implants. This type of dental implant uses just four strategically-placed titanium dental implants to support a complete row of teeth. With the overall simplicity of this procedure and the amazing results that it provides, all-on-four dental implants represent one of the best options available for dealing with the troubling issue of tooth loss.
The four titanium dental implants that are used in all-on-four treatment can be inserted into a patient’s jawbone in just one minimally invasive surgery. Once installed, these implants will be able to support a set of natural-looking replacement teeth that will restore the appearance of your smile and provide you with the function that you need. With proper maintenance and care, these implants and teeth should last a lifetime.
Since all-on-four implants provide the same functions as natural tooth roots, most patients who have received this type of procedure say that their replacement teeth feel the same as their original ones. Over time, the titanium implants will fuse with the jawbone, helping them feel even more natural. This will also prevent future bone loss from occurring, helping you to maintain your dental health in the long run. Best of all, you will enjoy an incredible new smile that you are proud to show-off to others.
