What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

Tooth loss is a hassle and not only does it negatively impact your self-esteem, but tooth loss also compromises your chewing and speaking ability. When missing teeth are not replaced right away, it will lead to further tooth loss and bone loss. It will also affect your physical appearance, making you look older for your age. When it comes to tooth loss, the best tooth replacement solution by far is dental implant surgery. If you are missing a whole row of teeth, you can benefit profoundly from All-on-4 dental implants.

What Makes All-on-4 Dental Implants Unique?

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the closest thing to real teeth because they mimic the look and function of natural teeth. Your oral surgeon or cosmetic dentist will screen you for eligibility. If you pass the eligibility criteria, a date will be scheduled for surgery. A tiny incision will be made on your gums, a hole will be drilled in your jawbone, and the dental implant designed to look like a screw and is made of titanium will be inserted into your jawbone. Attached to it is an abutment to anchor the dental crown.

How Are All-on-4 Different From Conventional Dental Implants?

What makes All-on-4 dental implants unique from conventional dental implants is that they only require four dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth compared to traditional implants where the number of implants is doubled for every arch. WithAll-on-4 dental implants, gum graftings are no longer required, a procedure that is typically a pre-requisite for conventional dental implants.
