It’s alarming how many basic tasks become extremely difficult when you have no teeth to rely on. Whether you’re creating your meal plan for the week or smiling for a photo, you shouldn’t have to struggle or hide your expression just because of tooth loss. The dentists at Brookwood Dental Associates are not only prepared to place your dental implants, but make sure that you’re fully satisfied with your treatment and informed on the process. With All-On-4, you can even achieve a brand-new smile in just one day. To schedule your first consultation, give us a call!
This treatment works to replace missing teeth via titanium implant posts, but it also supports an entire arch while doing so. Once we have determined that treatment is right for you, we’ll schedule you for surgery and place a series of implants strategically throughout your jaw. This works to maximize bone volume and allows us to attach the prosthetic the same day that the implants are placed. Following this phase of treatment, we’ll discuss aftercare tips you should know to keep your mouth healthy as it heals. This healing phase of treatment is essential to ensuring longevity of your tooth replacement.
Many people are eligible for dental implants and don’t even realize it until a dentist tells them. This is often the case even if you have been suffering with tooth loss for many years and also typical for older patients who may have been using a traditional denture previously. During your consultation, we examine your current oral health and bone volume to confirm if your jaw can handle All-On-4 treatment. If you meet these requirements as well as have many missing teeth, you will more than likely be eligible to begin treatment with us.
All-On-4 dental implants offer the most comprehensive tooth replacement possible in dentistry. Not only are you able to completely restore your smile, but you can prevent your jaw bone from breaking down and resorbing back into your body. Once the implants integrate with your bone tissue, you can expect a much stronger biting force and your jaw to remain it’s natural shape. This means you’re not only restoring your missing teeth, but your facial appearance and ability to eat the foods you love as well. No longer are you forced to deal with a denture that shifts and slides out of place when chewing and speaking.
When you receive individual dental implants, a large period of time needs to pass before a permanent restoration can be placed. This is because the osseointegration process is still ongoing and placing a crown or bridge too early could negatively influence the healing phase of treatment. Unfortunately, healing can also take anywhere between four and six months. Not only are you able to get a restoration much sooner with All-On-4, but you are actually being more cost-effective by not replacing teeth individually, like how you would traditional dental implants.
