For patients considering implants, it can seem like an intimidating decision. Tooth loss is surprisingly very common among adults, especially as we age. However, many individuals living with missing teeth do not want to deal with the hassle of getting dentures. Thankfully, we here at here at San Tan Oral Surgery offer an innovative solution that can give you something to smile about. All on four dental implant restoration is an alternative to traditional dentures, and can even prevent future bone loss of the jaw.
What is All On Four?
All on four is an innovative dental restoration implant that allows you to restore your full smile without an individual implant for each of your missing teeth. An implant usually involves a small titanium screw that is placed and screwed inside the jawbone in order to replace the root of the missing tooth. The process of securing the implant requires minor surgery.
However, with the all-on-four implant, a dental implant for each missing tooth is not needed. Four precisely placed implants on the top and bottom jaw is all that is needed in order to restore your full and natural-looking smile.
Besides being able to avoid individual implants, one of the greatest benefits of this treatment is that the implants are made of titanium, which has the unique ability to fuse together with your natural bone. This means, that the dental implant eventually becomes part of your jawbone for a new, strong, and lasting foundation for your new teeth. The bone fusion also offers an additional benefit of preventing further bone loss in the future of your jaw. With this transformational solution, you can maintain your youthful facial structure while enjoying your new and permanently beautiful smile.
Depending on the needs of each patient, if there is not a sufficient amount of bone in the upper jaw, all on four Zygomatic implants may be suggested. These advanced implants are anchored into the cheek bone, and serve as an alternative for more invasive grafting procedures. In cases of major bone deficiencies, a double Zygomatic implant can be used on both sides of the face for optimal bone support.
There are many benefits that Zygomatic implants can offer including:
- Enhanced appearance
- Natural -looking teeth and gums
- Ability to eat what you want
- Teeth that do not come out
- Long-term tooth support
- Quicker healing time
- Low maintenance
