This two-part article series explains the benefits of “All-On-4” dental implants as a far better and more sophisticated solution to missing teeth than removable dentures.
It’s all in the name... the “All-On-4” is a revolutionary teeth replacement treatment that is, in most cases, able to provide patients with new, non-removable teeth in just one day and with just one appointment. Thanks to its tremendous success rate, lower cost, faster treatment time and innumerable benefits over traditional teeth replacement techniques, such as removable dentures, the “All-On-4” has become the firm recommendation of cosmetic dentists in Sun City. In this two-part article series, we shall provide an overview of how this procedure works and the various benefits it offers over and above traditional dentures: a technology that belongs in the previous century.
What is the “All-On-4”?
The “All-On-4” is a dental implant procedure that is typically recommended to Sun City residents who have lost most or all of their teeth to general wear, tooth decay and oral ailments, such as gum disease.
“This procedure offers a fantastic alternative to traditional removable dentures, for one, because your new teeth are fixed permanently in the mouth,” explains a cosmetic dentist in Sun City. “They also look, feel and function like natural teeth, enabling patients to lead a high quality lifestyle without any of the pain, discomfort, embarrassment and low self-esteem that comes with wearing dentures.”
So, how does it work?
The “All-On-4” consists of four dental implants, which are strategically distributed so as to allow for maximum support of a fixed dental bridge. Two dental implants are placed at an angle towards the back of the jawbone, and another two in the front where the bone tends to be a little more resistant to atrophy and therefore typically exists in a greater volume. By carefully determining the implant sites prior to surgery, “All-On-4” specialists in Arizona can almost always:
• Avoid the need for bone grafting,
• Provide patients with a new set of teeth using only four implants per jaw,
• Complete full mouth reconstruction in just one surgery,
• And all at a much lesser cost than traditional dental implant treatment strategies.
What are the Benefits of “All-On-4” Implants?
“The “All-On-4” is a totally different concept to traditional removable dentures,” explains a cosmetic dentist in Sun City. “Instead of relying on the support of the gums, a patient’s new set of teeth is entirely supported by the jawbone, as is the case with natural teeth. There are many benefits associated with this... it feels more comfortable and natural and saves patients the acute discomfort associated with dentures rubbing against and pressing down on their gums.”
“It also saves them from having to repeatedly buy anesthetic ointments to help keep their gums comfortable,” explains the “All-On-4” dentist in Arizona. “Oral sores frequently develop as a consequence of ill-fitting dentures, so it’s a great relief for patients to no longer have to contend with these problems.”
But this is only really the tip of the iceberg...
