All-on-4 Comments Off on All-on-4 dental implants: An Overview

Although there are a number of different options for replacing missing teeth, there are few options as effective and versatile as dental implants. Dental implants, once used only for the replacement of single teeth, are now being used to replace entire sets of teeth.

Patients who were once forced to rely on removable, ill-fitting dentures can now enjoy a full set of permanent teeth that are as strong as they are beautiful. Utilizing a revolutionary technique called All-on-4 our DFW implant dentist can truly transform your smile.

The All-on-4 dental implant technique enables your dentist to use surgical grade implant posts to anchor your complete upper or lower denture directly to the jaw bone. Eliminating the inconvenience and discomfort of a traditional denture, this permanent tooth replacement method can actually improve the quality of your life.

Patients who have experienced bone deterioration, or who may not have been considered candidates for traditional dental implants can still enjoy the advantages of the All-on-4 system. In fact, the technique is almost exclusively recommended for these patients.

Your implant dentist will place four dental implants in carefully calculated locations within the jaw to provide the proper amount of support for your new teeth. The position as well as the angle of the implants creates a tremendously strong foundation to support your denture. 

Patients who were once forced to rely on removable, ill-fitting dentures can now enjoy a full set of permanent teeth that are as strong as they are beautiful.

During the same procedure, your denture will be securely attached to the implants. Amazingly, your new teeth will be strong enough for comfortable eating on the very same day as your procedure. A mild level of tenderness is common, although most patients report little discomfort and a speedy recovery.

The advantages of the All-on-4 procedure are remarkable. By relying on the implants for support, rather than your delicate gum tissue, the denture will immediately be more comfortable and stable than a traditional denture. The use of denture adhesives will be unnecessary. Implants are also proven to stop bone loss, preserving the shape and structure of the jaw bone.

If you are missing all of the upper or lower teeth, or facing the possibility of complete tooth loss, call 817-329-4979 and schedule an appointment to find out how the All-on-4 procedure can help.
