All-on-4 Dental Implants
A Long-term Solution for patients who lost their teeth or wear dentures. On top of having a major effect on your self-esteem and confidence, losing your teeth can also cause other problems.
Wrinkles, Facial asymmetry, bone loss, and difficulties with eating or speech are all common alongside missing teeth. Statistics show that about 178 million Americans are missing some or all of their teeth. Many are searching for a comfortable and cost-effective solution to the problem. One such solution is getting dental implants.
Full Mouth Implants
How They Work
Full mouth implants are also referred to as “All-on-4 implants.” This type of dental implant attaches to the jawbone to create a permanent teeth replacement and a beautiful smile. The name references the fact that the dental implants attach at four points in the upper and lower jawbone. The teeth fit into the implants to give the patient a beautiful smile and chewing their food just like natural teeth.
Most patients won’t need a bone graft before having the implants put in. Traditional implants involve anchoring the teeth individually, which will often require a bone graft.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
- An Ideal Fix for Missing Teeth
- All-on-4 implants are one of the solutions for missing teeth offered at our Sherman Oaks area dental implants center. They’re one of the best long-term fixes for the issue.
- Permanent Teeth
- After the implants are in, your new implants will look and feel like regular teeth.
- All-on-4 implants attach to your jawbone via titanium implant root, securing them in your mouth. Natural looking teeth sit on top of the implants.
- As a bonus, you won’t have to worry about sensitivity. This will allow you to enjoy a wider range of hot and cold foods.
One of the worst problems that can stem from missing teeth is bone loss in the jaw and wrinkles. Without a root secured in the jaw, the bone in the surrounding area will gradually deteriorate. An implant dentist can prevent this problem by securing the beautiful teeth to the jawbone.
A Strong Bite
The implants are made from solid materials like titanium and monolithic zirconia. You’ll gain up to 90 percent more bite strength when replacing your denture with All on 4 full mouth implants.
Don’t let the cost of implants scare you. Once your implants are in, they’re likely to last decades. You won’t have to worry about the teeth decaying. Provided you practice good hygiene and maintain regular dental appointments, most of your dental worries will become a thing of the past.
