|All on 4 Dental Implants
Conventional dentures have for many years been the chosen solution relied upon for restoring both tooth functionality as well as appearance. At Joshua M. Ignatowicz DMD & Associates, we provide our patients with the All-on-4 Treatment Concept, which is an upgraded solution to traditional dentures.
The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is one of the most innovative new tooth restoration treatments now available. It is an increasingly popular alternative to options like bridges and dentures because of how natural, sturdy, and simple the system is. Here at Joshua M. Ignatowicz DMD & Associates, we are excited to bring you the All-on-4 Treatment Concept as one of our many restorative options.
What Are All on 4 Dental Implants?
The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is a reliable restoration solution for patients, whether they are new to wearing dentures or they have been wearing a set of traditional dentures for several years. Even patients who have been classified as being more medically sensitive will be able to safely qualify for the procedure to get these stabilized dentures.
The All-on-4 uses four to six dental implants that are strategically placed in the mouth, to provide support for a full arch of dentures. They are a permanent fixture to your jawbone.
In the case of implant supported dentures, between four and six dental implants will support the dentures.
Who Should Get All-on-4?
The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is optimal for patients who want a more durable, permanent, and longer-lasting restorative solution than dentures. Dental implants are built for life, so there is no risk of them sliding around in your mouth like dentures do. They actually bond to your living jawbone, becoming a part of your body just like your natural teeth roots. This assists not only in anchoring the dental appliance in place, but also helps maintain your facial structure by preventing the resorption of bone that can occur with traditional dentures. Plus, with All-on-4 you do not have to worry about special adhesives and their messiness, or nightly cleanings like you do with dentures.
So, if you are one of the millions of Americans who are missing at least six teeth on a bridge, the All-on-4 might be the tooth restoration option you have been waiting for. Even if you are not missing enough teeth, the All-on-4 can still help you. For patients dealing with advanced gum disease, extreme tooth decay, a history of acid reflux, or other extensive oral disease or damage that has left their teeth unattractive and poorly functioning, the All-on-4 can be a chance to extract those teeth and immediately replace them with something that both looks and works better than natural teeth.
Why It Is Important To Stabilize Dentures
There is no denying that it can cost more to get dental implants placed, and it is a minimally invasive surgery in order to place the implants. This can make it easy to ask whether this step is truly worth it for the denture wearer.
Keep in mind that as good as today's dentures are, they will not feel or function in the same way that your natural teeth did. Traditional dentures also have a reputation for slipping and even being the cause of discomfort over time.
Being able to support your dentures, and stabilize them, with the use of dental implants, can be life-altering. Dentures that are afforded the support provided by dental implants will not be at risk of slipping or moving about in your mouth. These dentures will provide you with a look and feel that is much closer to your natural teeth.
An added bonus that many appreciate is that they will be able to add to the list of foods that they can enjoy. There is also the potential for a boost in levels of confidence and comfort for patients with stabilized dentures.
Dental Implants With Reduced Bone Density
Prior to the surgical placement of a titanium post for the dental implant, it is important that the patient have sufficient bone in the jaw. It is quite common to see bone regression in patients who have missing teeth.
The All-on-4 Treatment Concept allows for this, often without the need for patients to undergo a bone graft. The dental implants that are used are slightly longer than standard dental implants. They are inserted into the jawbone at a tilted angle, which allows for the ability to capture the area with denser bone. With the tilted placement, the longer length of the titanium posts, and the posterior placement offers increased potential for bone-to-implant contact.
How Long Does It Take to Get All-on-4 Dental Implants?
The All-on-4 technique has an immediate function, as well. That is, at the same time as implant surgery, a provisional prosthesis can be placed, which will perfectly fulfill both the aesthetic and functional aspects while osseointegration, the fusing of the bone to the dental implant, occurs. When this happens, the final prosthesis will then be placed.
Often, an All-on-4 treatment can be performed in as little as a single visit, though, depending on your unique circumstances and needs, we may ask you to come in for multiple visits. Regardless, the procedure is much faster than traditional dental implants. After an initial consultation where we will get all of your scans and exams out of the way, we will remove any teeth that might be remaining, and then place the four dental implants. Your new, permanent teeth are then affixed to the implants and you can be on your way, with a brand-new smile!
Schedule an Appointment for All on 4 Dental Implants
The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is a simple and painless, predictable, and protocolized process that will not cause any discomfort for you. However, it is a treatment that requires qualified specialists in collaboration with a team of prosthetics technicians in order to be effective.
