All On 4's is a dental implant system that uses just four implanted posts to secure an entire upper or lower span of artificial teeth. It’s a wonderful treatment option for people who lack sufficient bone tissue to have numerous individual dental implants.
Getting All On 4's implants begins with digital imaging to learn more about your existing teeth and bone tissue. If you decide to move forward with treatment, a surgical procedure places the four titanium posts into your jawbone. After a period of healing, you return and your dentist attaches your new teeth.
This completes the process, and your new smile is secure and ready to share with the world. Your dentist checks your implants during all subsequent dental exams, and repairs are possible if you encounter any problems.
Compared to having multiple individual dental implants, All On 4's is a much less invasive solution. The implanted posts angle back into your bone, taking advantage of the areas of greatest density. Many people who cannot not have multiple implants without first having bone grafting are good candidates for All On 4's.
Compared to a full set of dentures, All On 4's is more secure and more comfortable. There’s no slipping, hot spots, or gum sensitivity. Once your body adjusts to your new All On 4's smile, your new teeth look and function much like your natural teeth.
Dentures might be a more affordable upfront expense, but keep in mind that even the best set of dentures eventually requires replacement. Factor those costs in when making your decision.
All On 4's requires a surgical procedure, so you need recovery time for your jawbone tissue to fuse to the implanted posts. This process makes All On 4's a secure and stable tooth replacement option.
There are things you can do to ease your recovery time. Be sure to follow your specialist’s post-procedure guidance. If you smoke, try to find a way to quit the habit before your implant procedure. Smoking robs your body of proper circulation, which is necessary for optimal healing.
During your consultation, your dentist explains what to expect during your recovery and overall treatment time. It takes less time than you might think to complete your new smile.
