All-On-Four Dental Implants
Denture Hassles are Over
What’s better than the ease of mind afforded by choosing a branded dental procedure? All-on-Four dental implants are performed using several unique methods. Whether a patient is having issues with current dentures or is just beginning their journey with full arch replacement, they often wonder why they didn’t seek treatment sooner. Slippage is common with traditional dentures and can affect speech and the ability to eat comfortably. People who have experienced life with All-on-Four rave of the difference this procedure has made. After the healing process is complete, recipients are able to eat foods they had not been able to eat for quite some time. Many spoke of the boost in confidence that accompanies a strong, natural looking smile.
A Quick Overview of the Procedure
- A treatment plan is created after consultation.
- Any existing teeth are removed.
- Four implants are placed surgically in the affected arch or arches.
- A set of prosthetic teeth are attached. As the mouth heals, a modified diet may be necessary.
- A final set of porcelain teeth are attached when the mouth is ready.
Why is All-on-Four superior to other similar procedures?
Dr. Cory Nguyen at Beyond Dental is excited to introduce patients to this procedure because of the impact it can have on their lives. Most patients consult with a dentist because they are ready for a change in the way their mouth looks and feels. All-on-Four shorten the timeline necessary to reach that goal. The final set of teeth are porcelain, meaning they look and feel like natural teeth. Since the implants are strategically placed in the jaw, once healing is complete, they provide such solid anchor points that the prosthetic teeth are often stronger than the natural teeth they are replacing.
It’s in the Details
When total rehabilitation is needed, All-on-Four is the most permanent solution on the market. The procedure uses biocompatible titanium so the implants will fuse seamlessly with the jaw bone. It only requires 4 implants for a full fixed bridge. Because the implants are angled 45°, they make better use of available bone.
The jaw bone deteriorates once teeth are missing. This can result in a lack of structure to support implants. By angling the implants, the sinus cavity is unaffected and the implants make use of more good jaw bone. This detail can eliminate the need for a bone graft.
Dr. Nguyen is the Dallas dentist committed to supporting his patients through All-on-Four dental implants. Each patient is different so individualized treatment plans are formed. Patients may need to rely on liquids and softer foods as their mouth heals. It is important to practice good dental hygiene to keep mouth as clean as possible. Once the mouth has healed, patients are able to eat, talk, and smile like they had not in a long time. The people of Dallas, TX should get ready to experience a surge in genuine smiles.
