|Multiple Tooth Implant
All-on-4® Treatment Conceptrefers to having all of your teeth supported by just four dental implants. It is the most common type of multiple tooth implant. As technology has been more developed over time, so has the All-on-4 in evolving greatly and developing some very valuable features and benefits. Aurora Dental Care has dentists extremely skilled in the All-on-4 Treatment Concept and they will be happy to help you get started with the process.
Features of All-on-4
There are three features of the All-on-4 Treatment Concept that make it stand out. The first feature is that this treatment uses only four dental implants to support a full fixed bridge. Another feature is the use of angulated implants in the back of your mouth to overcome bone deficiencies or anatomical structures. The third feature is the ability for immediate input.
Who Qualifies for All-on-4 Treatment?
If you are extremely delicate when it comes to medical procedures, this process might be a good option for you. The process is minimally invasive, so you do not need to worry about being in much pain after the procedure. The most important factor that is considered when determining eligibility is the patient’s ability to heal.
If you do not heal very well, that does not mean you are immediately disqualified from this procedure. It just means that you will need to discuss further precautions with your dentist to prevent infection while you are healing.
What to Expect
This treatment plan requires the installation of four dental implants in your upper and lower arches, giving dentures something to hold on to that is permanent. These implants do not need to be placed at an angle like other implants for denture support would be. The posts are longer than normal, so bone density is less likely to be an issue.
The All-on-4 treatment is minimally invasive. There won’t be any bone grafting necessary before you are able to have your implants placed. You will be able to get your new teeth immediately after the procedure and treatment plan are both finished.
Expect your quality of life to improve after this procedure has been completed. Missing teeth and dentures can both be quite an adjustment to get used to, especially because you will need to change how you eat. By choosing the All-on-4 Treatment Concept, you will be able to continue eating the same foods you love. You won’t have to worry about your teeth becoming loose.
To determine proper placement, your doctor will give you an exam. After they see what the condition of your mouth is like, you will come up with a treatment plan together that will work the best for you. This treatment makes it possible to take your current dentures or ones that will be made for you and gives you a way to attach them to your jaw. With the implants being made out of titanium, the implants will be able to fuse to your jaw. This gives an extremely solid foundation for your dentures.
