All-on-4 implants are used to treat patients who have already lost or are about to lose all of their natural upper or lower teeth. Over the past decade, dental implants have become the preferred method of natural tooth replacement. Traditional implants require an implant for every tooth, but All-on-4 Implant Therapy is changing the way teeth are replaced.
What are All-on-4 Implants?
All-on-4 implants are an innovative way of attaching permanent prosthetic teeth with just four dental implants. The procedure is less invasive than traditional implants, and it is much faster too. Patients are fully sedated for the procedure, during which a minimum of four implants are placed into the supporting bone beneath the gum line. Most patients require no bone grafting for this procedure, and a new, unmovable prosthesis can be placed in the same visit.
With All-on-4 implants, patients can expect to resume near normal tooth function, and most will not require dietary changes that are required for denture-wearers. Furthermore, implants are permanent and easy to care for, making caring for them a breeze.
