For patients who are completely missing their upper teeth, lower teeth, or both, All-on-4 dental implants offer maximum tooth replacement in as little as a single appointment. Although there are other tooth replacement options such as dentures or removable partials, many patients find that there is much to be said about this permanent tooth replacement solution.
The All-on-4 dental implant solution is a revolutionary technique in which your oral surgeon strategically places four titanium implants into the jaw bone. Within moments of being placed, the implants are strong enough to support a full upper or lower denture. Aside from mild tenderness following the appointment, most patients are able to resume a soft diet soon after the procedure has been completed.
The All-on-4 technique is ideal for patients whose lifestyles may not permit them to be without their teeth for extended periods of time. Most patients can have teeth extracted if necessary, appropriate dental implants placed, and receive their new dentures all in the same visit. This level of convenience alone is particularly attractive to most patients.
Often, patients who have suffered bone loss due to periodontal disease, or have worn ill-fitting dentures for many years are not considered to be ideal candidates for traditional dental implants. An impressive advantage of the All-on-4 technique is that these patients are ideal candidates for this same-day tooth replacement solution.
Due to the appealing custom design of your new permanent dentures, you can expect to feel amazingly confident during close social interactions. You will no longer be preoccupied with the possibility of slipping or sliding dentures. With the All-on-4 technique, there is no need to remove the dentures, even at night. You will never need to purchase special cleaning solutions, pastes or creams as part of your daily homecare routine.
When your oral surgeon combines the efficiency of a denture or partial with the stability and strength of the dental implant, the result is a secure set of teeth that can truly improve your quality of life. If you are no longer satisfied with your existing denture, or if you are at risk of losing all of your teeth, reserve your appointment to discuss All-on-4 dental implants in Frisco today.
