How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
If you suffer from a deteriorating jawbone, you may be ineligible for a traditional implant-retained denture. Because these often require 6 or more implants to be placed into your jawbone, it can be difficult for dental professionals to find dense enough areas to ensure a successful placement.
With All-On-4 implants, we can strategically place four dental implants into specified areas of your jawbone, each providing necessary support for your custom-made denture. Typically, two implants are positioned at an angle in the back of your jawbone and two exist toward the front of your mouth. This will create an even foundation that readily supports your new smile.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?
If you have significant bone loss in one or both of your arches, you may qualify for All-On-4 implants. The only way to know for sure is by scheduling an initial consultation with Dr. Manpreet Dhaliwal. It is during this visit that he will examine your oral cavity and facial structure to determine if this type of restorative procedure can be accomplished. Naturally, you will need to have good general oral health and be free of gum disease or other more problematic issues (i.e. diabetes, autoimmune disorders), as these can make it difficult to heal effectively and achieve a successful placement.
What Are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?
By combining a traditional denture with dental implants in Kent, you can expect to experience the following benefits:
How Does All-On-4 Differ?
Unlike a traditional implant-retained denture, All-On-4 implants are inserted into the densest areas of your jawbone. Why is this important? For individuals who want regular implants, they will need to undergo a bone graft or sinus lift to add bone minerals to the weakened areas of the jaw. This can add months onto the timeline to receive a new and improved smile.
With All-On-4, there are no additional procedures needed because your dentist will use the strongest parts of your bone to serve as the foundation for your implants. Also, you can expect to receive a temporary denture the same day as your implant placement. This is far different from traditional implants, as you will be required to wait several months before you can receive any type of denture. As a result, you will get to walk away from your surgical procedure with a complete, functional smile while you heal at home.
