Losing teeth can bring a whole slew of disadvantages from difficulties in chewing your food to speaking your words properly. And of course, you’d be embarrassed to give a wide smile if you’ve got some missing front teeth. While dentures and bridges offer a good alternative to these problems, the best and most cost-effective solution would be to get permanent replacements using dental implants by means of the All-on-4 treatment instead.
All-on-4 dental implants involve a minimally invasive surgical procedure that provides recipients with a solid foundation for replacement teeth all in just one day. Four individual titanium implants are inserted in precise locations into a patient’s jawbone, which act as support pillars for attaching permanent replacement teeth. The procedure is done in just one appointment, and recipients of the All-on-4 can begin to feel the benefits right away.
Advantages of the All-on-4 system include:
• Far more natural looking teeth
• Comfortable to use as opposed to awkward dentures and bridges
• Full use of teeth for chewing and speaking
• Reduced bone resorption or atrophy
• Lower overall cost
• Faster healing times
• Easy maintenance, no special care required other than regular brushing and flossing
Best of all, almost 90% of people with missing teeth are suitable candidates for getting an All-on-4 treatment. Traditional dental implants would need patients with significant jawbone density or have them undergo bone grafting and other ancillary procedures, which consume a lot of time and money. With the All-on-4, your Santa Cruz implant dentist uses advanced 3D imaging technology to accurately place implants in suitable areas in your jaw, to give you a new, strong, and permanent smile.
