Why might I consider all-on-four dental implants for smile restoration?
If you need to replace missing teeth, you may feel overwhelmed by the choices available to you. There are many ways in which the smile can be restored, thanks to continued advances in restorative dentistry. At Heritage Dental, we may recommend dental implants, or tooth implants, for full arch reconstruction and replacing one or several teeth in a row. The entire smile can be restored effectively with all-on-four dental implants.
What are all-on-four dental implants?
Dr. Beth Skovron of Heritage Dental in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, describes all-on-four dental implants as a revolutionary way to replace several missing teeth. These implants are designed to provide a stable, secure, and long-lasting solution for those who suffer from extensive tooth loss.
The all-on-four procedure involves the placement of four dental implant posts into the jawbone. These posts act as artificial roots, supporting an entire arch of new, custom-crafted porcelain dentures that look and feel like natural teeth. This innovative technique is less extensive than traditional implant treatments, requiring fewer appointments and faster healing times. In addition, all-on-four dental implants can be used with existing bridges or dentures to restore lost functionality and improve aesthetic results.
What are the advantages of all-on-four dental implants?
The benefits of all-on-four implants are numerous:
- Dental implants provide a more natural look and feel while providing superior stability and durability when compared to traditional dentures or bridges
- All-on-four dental implants can improve oral health by preventing the jawbone recession that occurs with missing teeth
- Dental implants preserve existing bone structure
- Dental implants do not require special care instructions like traditional dentures
