WHAT ARE ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
All-on-4 dental implants are a type of dental implant treatment that uses four dental implants to support a full arch of teeth. The procedure involves placing two dental implants at the front of the jaw and two at the back, which are angled to provide maximum support for the prosthetic teeth.
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is a two-stage process that involves the following steps:
Stage 1: Implant Placement
The dentist will examine the patient’s mouth and take X-rays and scans to assess the condition of the jawbone and plan the implant placement. The patient will then undergo a surgical procedure to place the dental implants into the jawbone. The implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone to provide a secure anchor for the prosthetic teeth.
Once the dental implants are in place, the patient will need to wait several months for the bone to fuse with the implants in a process called osseointegration. During this time, the patient may wear temporary dentures or a bridge to maintain the appearance and function of their teeth.
It’s important to remember that each procedure and patient are unique.
Stage 2: Prosthetic Placement
Once the dental implants have fully integrated with the jawbone, the patient will return to the dentist for the prosthetic placement.
The dentist will attach a custom-made bridge or denture to the dental implants using abutments. The prosthetic teeth are designed to look and function like natural teeth and are matched to the color and shape of the patient’s existing teeth. After the prosthetic teeth are attached, the patient will have a full set of functional teeth that are anchored securely to the jawbone with dental implants.
To learn more in-depth detail, reach out to an experienced oral surgeon who can go over your history and how the procedure may benefit you.
WHY ARE ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS BENEFICIAL?
All-on-4 dental implants offer several benefits over traditional dentures and other dental implant procedures, including:
All-on-4 dental implant procedures typically have a shorter recovery time than traditional implant procedures because the implants are angled to maximize support and avoid the need for bone grafting. Patients can often return to their normal activities within a few days of the procedure, although they should avoid hard or crunchy foods for several weeks while the implants heal.
Improved Appearance and Function
All-on-4 dental implants look and function like natural teeth, providing patients with a natural-looking smile and the ability to eat a wide range of foods. The prosthetic teeth are custom-made to match the patient’s existing teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance.
Prevents Bone Loss
Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving the facial structure.
Traditional dentures can cause bone loss over time, leading to changes in the facial structure and a sunken appearance.
HOW LONG DO ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS LAST?
All-on-4 dental implants are a permanent solution for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. With proper care and maintenance, All-on-4 dental implants can last for many years and, in some cases, even a lifetime.
The longevity of All-on-4 dental implants depends on several factors, including:
Quality of the Implant
All-on-4 dental implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that fuses with the jawbone to provide a strong anchor for the prosthetic teeth. The quality of the implant and the manufacturing process can affect how long the implant lasts.
Good oral hygiene is essential for maintaining the longevity of All-on-4 dental implants.
Patients should brush and floss their teeth regularly and visit their dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
Lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and poor nutrition can affect the longevity of All-on-4 dental implants. Patients should avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption to promote oral health and longevity of the implants.
The success of All-on-4 dental implants depends on the density and quality of the jawbone.
Patients with good bone density are more likely to have successful implant placement and longevity.
In general, All-on-4 dental implants can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Patients should follow their dentist’s recommendations for care and maintenance and attend regular check-ups to ensure the longevity of their All-on-4 dental implants.
