Dental implants are known to be the best teeth replacement solutions. They are fixed to the jawbone by means of metal studs made from Titanium. This makes them extremely strong and stable, thereby putting them ahead of their obvious alternatives such as dental bridges and dentures. But, individual dental implants wouldn’t be the best choice to replace multiple teeth.
To help people with multiple missing teeth, we have an advanced restorative treatment procedure called the all-on-four. These restorations would be the perfect option to replace multiple teeth with the added advantage of implant-like stability. You wouldn’t have to worry about your dentures slipping out of your mouth anymore.
What are All-on-4 dentures?
All-on-4 dentures are an alternative to conventional dentures. They are a set of prosthetic teeth that are fixed to the implants in the mouth, thereby offering excellent strength and stability. With all-on-4 dentures, patients would be able to bite and chew food like normal. Even their smile would be restored to make it appear aesthetically pleasing.
When you visit us for the initial consultation, we would screen the teeth to understand the condition. If you wish to get All-on-4 dentures, the remaining teeth will have to be removed. Hence, we would extract the remaining teeth and prepare you for the implantation procedure. During this, local anesthesia will be administered to get rid of the pain and discomfort.
The dentist will determine where the implants should be placed precisely. Only 4 implants will be placed on an entire ridge over which the dentures would rest. The implantation surgery would be carried out under the influence of a sedative. Next, the dentures that are prefabricated would be placed on the implants and locked in position. The best thing about All-on-4 dentures is that you can get rid of your displeasing smile and get a whole new one in just one visit to the dentist’s clinic.
