If you are missing most or all of your teeth you understand that you will soon have a number of your teeth removed, there are a few different options that you have in order to replace your teeth. It is up to you and your dentist what you think the best replacement option is for you, but let us at All In One Benso Family Dentistry in Phoenix, AZ, tell you about the benefits of All-On-4 implants.
Some of your potential options are full or partial dentures, traditional dental implants, or the new and innovative All-On-4 implants. It is likely that you haven’t yet heard of them, so let us help!
All-On-4 implants are a new and intelligent method that your dentist can help you with to replace your teeth. All-On-4 implants have the added benefit of not just replacing your teeth and giving you back a healthy chewing surface, but they also provide structure, support, and stimulation to add strength to your jawbone. This method is simpler than tradition dental implants. It is also secure and safe.
Essentially, four titanium implants will be inserted into both your lower and upper jaw at an angle. Titanium is the best metal for implants due to its natural affinity for bone. These four implants in each jaw will then serve as the perfect anchor for a partial or full arch of beautiful artificial teeth. The way that All-On-4 implants are inserted at an angle into the back of the jaw bone allows your dentist to effectively eliminate the need for bone grafting or sinus lifts!
How are All-On-4 implants different to other tooth replacement options? Well, think of this. When you receive full or partial dentures, there is no artificial tooth root inserted into your jaw bone. This can cause the jaw to quickly weaken without the stimulation that natural teeth give them. All-On-4 implants give your jaw bone the strength and stability it needs.
Traditional implants typically require 8 different implants to support the tooth replacements in each jaw. All-On-4 implants cut the required number of implants in half!
