Believe it or not, but 35 million Americans are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth. And as most of you know, if you’re missing your teeth, you get dentures. A perfectly fine solution, but what if it was possible to replace your missing teeth with actual teeth? No more dentures– a whole new set of teeth that appear just like your natural ones? Now what if it was possible that this new smile can be in your mouth IN ONE DAY? It is now possible with All on Four dental implants.
Dental implants involve replacing each tooth with a small titanium screw that fits inside your jawbone, eventually replacing the root-part of a missing tooth. Minor surgery is required, but once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a realistic-looking, functional prosthetic tooth.
If you need a whole set of teeth, dentures are still a logical alternative for some. Unfortunately, over a period of time a long term denture wearer can expect Facial Collapse Syndrome. A long term denture wearer can also expect the underlying bone to dissolve and fade away (atrophy) causing the denture to eventually become loose and ill fitting. Bone atrophy will develop as nothing is preventing your jawbone from shrinking. By the use of dental implants, the bone is stimulated and has reason for new life; therefore the likelihood of atrophy is avoided.
All-on-four implants combines the two procedures by inserting four dental implants into your jawbone, then attaching an entire set of teeth to these four implants, making them much stronger and protecting the underlying bone at the same time.
We invite you to come in for a consultation and see if this is the right alternative for you or a family member.
