All-on-4 dental implants, also known as teeth-in-a-day, are a modern dental solution for those who have lost most or all of their teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or other reasons. This innovative dental procedure involves placing a complete set of teeth on just four dental implants, providing patients with a functional and attractive smile in a single day.
How does it work?
The all-on-4 procedure involves inserting four titanium dental implants into the jawbone at specific angles to provide maximum stability and support. These implants serve as anchors for a dental prosthesis, which is a complete arch of teeth designed to fit snugly over the implants.
The prosthesis is attached to the implants immediately after they are inserted, giving the patient a complete set of teeth in just one visit. This procedure eliminates the need for multiple dental appointments and lengthy healing times associated with traditional dental implants.
Advantages of all-on-4 dental implants:
- Immediate results: As mentioned earlier, the all-on-4 procedure provides patients with a complete set of teeth in a single day. This means you can leave the dental office with a new, fully functional set of teeth in one day!
- Shorter healing time: Unlike traditional dental implants, the all-on-4 procedure requires minimal healing time. Patients can resume their normal activities within a few days of the procedure.
- Reduced cost: The all-on-4 procedure is more cost-effective than traditional dental implants because it requires fewer implants and appointments.
- Improved quality of life: With all-on-4 dental implants, patients can eat, speak, and smile confidently, improving their overall quality of life.
- Prevent bone loss: When teeth are lost, the jawbone begins to deteriorate, leading to further tooth loss and other dental problems. All-on-4 dental implants stimulate bone growth, preventing bone loss and preserving the jawbone's structure.
- Easy maintenance: All-on-4 dental implants are easy to maintain and clean. Patients can brush and floss their teeth as usual, and regular dental checkups are recommended.
Is the all-on-4 procedure right for you?
The all-on-4 dental implant procedure is suitable for most patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. However, a thorough dental examination is necessary to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Patients with advanced periodontal disease, significant bone loss, or other dental problems may require additional dental procedures before undergoing the all-on-4 procedure.
