Four immediate teeth11th February 2016
If you’ve been told you’re not a suitable candidate for dental implants then think again. All-on-4™ might just be the answer to your missing teeth woes.
Dental implants are made from super tough and bone-friendly titanium. They are placed in the jaw to act just like tooth roots and provide a strong base for replacement teeth. And just like natural teeth they also help keep the jaw healthy by supporting the bone.
Some people may have been advised that they don’t have enough bone mass to support implants or that they will need extensive bone grafting to make implants a possibility. This is where All-on-4™ comes in – the revolutionary technique consisting of just four securely and strategically placed implants. It is so effective that even those patients with virtually no bone can benefit from a brand new set of teeth in just one day!
How does this speedy solution work?
First, we will take a good look at your dental health to determine the best course of treatment. We then use advanced computer technology to create a 3D image of your jaws, formulate a treatment plan and ‘place’ virtual implants in the 3D image to ensure that surgery will be as accurate as possible.
The implants are then strategically placed to provide a suitable foundation for the attachment of replacement teeth. Two of these implants (the ones at the rear of the jaw) are inserted at an angle towards the front of the jaw bone where the bone density is higher. This also means that all four implants are braced together and any vertical forces are evenly distributed through the jawbone.
And so you can walk out of the surgery with a complete set of shiny chompers, we put temporary acrylic teeth in place. When the implants have bonded with the bone (known as osseo-integration) and successful healing has taken place, more durable permanent teeth are fitted and your missing teeth will be history.What are the benefits of All-on-4™?
