The last thing you want to deal with is missing teeth. We understand that it can be a difficult situation to go through. However, if you are missing any teeth, we have a solution that might work great for you: All-on-4 dental implants.
What are All-on-4 implants?
The term All-on-4 refers to all teeth being supported on four dental implants. It is a surgical prosthodontics procedure for total rehabilitation if you are missing teeth or have broken or decayed teeth. The four implants support a fixed prosthesis with 10 to 14 teeth and is placed immediately–typically within 24 hours of surgery.
All-on-4 is a treatment technique that has evolved over time and has the following features:
- Four dental implants to support a full fixed bridge.
- Angulated implants in the back to overcome bony deficiencies or anatomical structures.
- Immediate loading.
What are the benefits of All-on-4?
When All-on-4 dental implants are used to restore your smile, there are several benefits you can experience. Some of the benefits of All-on-4 dental implants include:
- Full-arch restoration.
- Shorter installation times than other implants.
- Prevents further bone loss.
- Decreases the need for a bone graft.
