Patients who have experienced significant tooth loss may find that traditional dentures are not for them. They may deal with these restorations that are ill-fitting, or they may be tired of dealing with messy denture adhesives every day. If you are interested in finding another alternative for replacing all the teeth in the smile, Dr. Todd Adams of Sunnyvale, California may suggest teeth in a day with All-on-4® dental implants.
What are All-on-4® dental implants?
With traditional dental implants, our dentist places them to support a crown or bridge to replace one or more teeth. However, if patients have lost all the teeth in the dental arch, they may need a stronger and more durable alterative. This is where All-on-4® dental implants come in. These implants are made to hold a full denture in place with several implants along the dental arch. This not only keeps the dentures in place, but provides the strength needed for patients to enjoy all their favorite foods. Instead of avoiding steaks and apples, patients with All-on-4® dental implants will be able to eat these foods with confidence!
Who is a candidate for All-on-4® dental implants?
To determine if a patient is appropriate for All-on-4® dental implants, a thorough evaluation is needed. During this examination, the dentist will take x-rays to ensure there is sufficient bone to hold the implants in place. If there is not, then patients may need additional treatments beforehand, such as bone grafting. This builds up the bone of the jaw where the implants are placed to provide the proper foundation for the implants. Four implants are placed along the jawline, and a more conservative full denture is created to snap into place.
What are the benefits of All-on-4® dental implants?
- A wise investment
- Improved confidence
- Improved function
- Confidence when eating your favorite foods!
