Tooth loss can happen due to many reasons, from decay and natural aging to trauma and disease. Whilst this issue can be severely worrying, solutions such as dentures offer a way to achieve replacement teeth. However, many people would prefer a more permanent option rather than one that is removable.
Fortunately, for those wanting a fixed set of replacement teeth, there is also a technique for permanently replacing not only a single missing tooth, but a full arch of missing teeth. This method is known as ‘All on 4 Dental Implants’.
This procedure makes the possibility of arriving at our dental clinic with multiple missing teeth and leaving with a brand new set of fixed teeth replacements a reality. Keep reading to find out more!
Replace Multiple Teeth, In One Day!
The All on 4 method offers a revolutionary approach to teeth replacement. The method involves fitting a full arch of replacement teeth through the fitting of 4 Dental Implants. Dental Implants offer a reliable and completely discrete way to replace missing teeth whilst maintaining a completely natural appearance.
What is a Dental Implant?
A Dental Implant is a titanium screw that is fixed into the jawbone to replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Once fitted, the bone surrounding the implant will begin to fuse to it, helping the implant to become firmly secured. A false tooth, which may be a crown or denture, is then fitted at the top of the implant.
Multiple Dental Implants
Many people decide to opt for Dental Implants due to the permanence that they offer, including those with either multiple missing teeth or a complete set of missing teeth. The All on Four technique involves achieving a full arch of replacement teeth through a fixed dental bridge which is supported by 4 dental implants. . The use of a bridge means a secure replacement for all teeth without the need for individual Implants to be fitted to replace each and every one.
What’s more impressive is the fact that the All on 4 technique can be carried out in a single day!
The All on 4 Technique Vs Other Teeth Replacement Methods
The evolution of dental care has produced many different ways to tackle the age-old problem of replacing a tooth that is failing or missing. Treatments such as dentures and bridgework are commonly used to help those with missing teeth. Whilst these methods can offer an effective solution, many people would prefer to opt for a method that is permanently secured in the mouth.
If you fall into the category of being someone who wants a permanent, discrete and completely secured solution for missing teeth, then the best treatment for you would be Dental Implants. Furthermore, if you require multiple replacement teeth, the All on 4 technique has the potential to be an absolute life changer.
A Permanent & Secure Solution to Tooth Loss
Whilst some may admire the flexibility of a denture being removable, others may find the process of taking them out and putting them back in to feel like a chore. The All on Four technique offers the opportunity to have a fixed set of teeth that are permanently secured to your mouth. The Dental Implants actually fuse with the jawbone, creating optimal security.
Also, whereas other teeth replacement methods require repair and replacement, with the All on Four method, you’re set for life!
Dental Implants Look & Work Like Real Teeth
Dental Implants can be designed to cater to your needs and wants. They can be designed to look completely natural! Additionally, the Implants will function and work just like real teeth. The treatment can create a world of change for those who previously felt self-conscious or concerned when eating (bite force is restored), speaking, talking and laughing.
Prevents Bone Loss
Losing teeth usually also involves the loss of bone mass in the jaw. Dental Implants stimulate the jawbone just like a natural tooth would. This process helps with preventing bone loss/resorption.
