It is a surgical procedure for total rehabilitation of patients with decayed teeth, badly broken down teeth, or periodontal disease.
All these oral conditions can lead to poor oral and overall health, and can also affect the patients’ self-esteem and quality of life.
The All-on-4 dental implant solution enhances your oral health and overall well-being. It’s also an efficient solution that saves you some time and prevents you from spending extra cash. The all-on-4 procedure is done by placing four implants in the anterior maxillae where the bone density is higher.
This technique has been identified as a potential and valid less expensive alternative to conventional implant techniques.
And today, it has increased in popularity as more clinicians now recommend it for their patients.
There is a common question or a direct challenge to the All-On-4 procedure which is ‘can all the bottom and top set of teeth in the mouth be replaced by just four implants?” The answer is simply yes, thanks to thetechnological advancements in cosmetic dentistry.
Tooth loss is a common occurrence among adults, and its chances increase with age. Instead of living with the hassles and discomfort of dentures, lots of people are opting for AO4 because it is now regarded as a simplified way of replacing decayed or missing teeth.
In AO4, only four implants that are strategically placed in a thick jawbone area are required to replace your entire set of teeth, while traditional implants require doubled of what is required for All-on-4 implants per arch.
All-on-4 implants are more stable and secure in the jaw since they are at a certain angle to each other. The procedure also does not require bone grafting as in conventional implants which saves time and makes it more cost-effective.
The procedure basically involves the use of anesthesia, preparation of the area, implant installation, and post-operative cleaning and suturing.
The procedure may look scary if you’re getting it for the first time. The fear is mostly generated by uncertainty. The following are the four major steps involved in getting an All-On-4 dental implant.
1. Your dentist will want to make sure that you are comfortable, so anesthesia will be administered.
2. The dentist will prepare your mouth for the implants as he removes your remaining failing teeth and infected tissue from your gums or jaw.
3. He will then start the installation process. The titanium screws will be inserted into your jawbone. Two implants will be placed toward the front of your mouth and two towards the posterior of your mouth so that the pressure of the denture is evenly bear by the strategically placed anchors.
4. After the implantation, surgical sites will be wholly cleaned and all incision will be sutured. You will then be taken to the recovery room where you take time to relax and wake up from the anesthesia.
If it is a choice by many, it must have some benefits attached to it. Here are some of the benefits of the AO4 dental procedure.
Hence, it is called a smile-a-day procedure. There is no waiting period for its usage, and you can experience enhanced chewing ability, teeth stability, and overall comfortability almost immediately.
Chances are that when you lose your entire teeth as a result of shrinkage of the jawbone supporting it, you will be looking older than your age. A dental implant can help to prevent this from happening or correct it when it does.
The All-on-4 procedure helps to preserve the jawbone and prevent further damage to the facial structure associated with missing teeth.
It significantly decreases the wrinkles associated with missing tooth or bone structure, whose end result is looking younger with a more radiant smile.
With the All-on-4 procedure, your overall eating habits will experience a boom. You can eat what you want when you want, and where you want.
The dental procedure allows you to enjoy your favorite foods again. Whether in public or in your home, you can now sit back and have a pleasant bite of your desserts.
Unlike a normal denture, it doesn’t cause any discomfort or embarrassment. After placement, no adjustment is needed and it will normally serve you for life.
When you have a good set of teeth, your confidence will surely receive a boost, aside from the greater comfort you will experience.
These are what you experience with All-on-4 dental implants. Generally, you will look better, feel better, and have a renewed outlook.
Over time, periodontal diseases which are mostly caused by bacterial infection has been linked to diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and other chronic diseases.
By taking good care of your mouth with regular brushing and flossing, dental implants will enhance your overall health.
The all-on-4 dental implant is very stable and reliable. There is no need to worry about shifting or slipping because it is firmly anchored to the angulated area of the thick jawbone.
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure does not only saves time and money but it also significantly reduces the healing time and alleviates the emotional stress you feel when you don’t like your look.
Bone Atrophy is a condition characterized by wasting away of the bone density when there is an excessive breakdown of bone substances and structure.
The all-on-4 procedure helps in managing this condition.
All-On-4 procedure shadow some steps that are usually done during conventional dental implant sessions such as grafting. Grafting is exempted from All-On-4 dental implants in Leicester, which drastically reduces the cost of the operation and also the time that would have been expended onBack to Blog
