More than 35 million people in the US are missing at least one full row of teeth. Traditional dentures, which are commonly used for tooth replacement, can be difficult to use and maintain and do not address the jaw bone deterioration that occurs with tooth loss. Many patients are now choosing “All-on-4” dental implants as a better option for full-arch tooth replacement.
A dental implant is a surgically implanted titanium screw that fits inside the jawbone. This implant is used to replace the root of a missing tooth or teeth. Once implants are placed in a relatively minor surgery, artificial teeth can be attached to them, giving the patient realistic-looking, highly functional prosthetic teeth.
With All-on-4 Dental Implants, you will not need a dental implant for each missing tooth. With four precisely placed implants per jaw, your full smile can be restored! Made from titanium, the implants have the unique ability to fuse with natural bone and function as a part of it. Eventually, the implants become a part of the jawbone and will serve as a strong foundation for your new teeth for a lifetime.
This minimally invasive solution provides you with teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth and helps to maintain a youthful facial structure. To learn more about All-on-4 Implants and how they can change your life, call us today at (708) 498-4165.
