For our patients who have lost multiple teeth to disease or trauma and don’t want to wear removable dentures, dental implants are the best choice. Dental implants offer a freedom to patients that cannot be found in other tooth replacement options, but not all implants are the same.
When replacing an entire arch, we can use traditional dental implants or the newer All-On-4 technology. Both will give you a brand new smile, but the similarities end there.
The technological advancement found in All-On-4 now allows patients to receive a completely new arch implanted on 4 posts rather than the 6 to 8 required for traditional implants. Not only does All-On-4 require less posts, these posts are inserted diagonally rather than vertically. This means that even if you have had significant bone loss, you can still be a candidate for All-On-4 without adding a complicated and invasive bone grafting procedure.
Because of it’s revolutionary implant style, All-On-4 is a much quicker procedure and can be accomplished in as little as one office visit rather than the multiple appointments required for traditional implants. You’ll even recover faster too!
So how do you know if you’re a candidate for All-On-4?
· You have lost several or all of your teeth on one arch or will need to have multiple extractions to remove damaged teeth.
· You have been told you don’t have sufficient bone to support a traditional implant.
· You are interested in a quicker procedure that has a shorter recovery time.
· You currently wear dentures and find them uncomfortable and inconvenient.
