All on Four Dental Implants: A Definition
Before you can fully appreciate the difference between removable dentures and All on Four dental implants, you need to understand what the latter essentially are! The ‘All on Four’ is a surgical protocol or method for the placement of dental implants. It involves the insertion of – as the name suggests – four dental implants in regions of the jaw that naturally contain a greater volume of atrophy resistant bone tissue. This enables implant dentists to provide even those patients that suffer from advanced jaw bone atrophy and volume loss with a fixed and non-removable tooth replacement solution. These are the patients that
have been told in the past, as a result of jaw bone loss, that they are not candidates for dental implant procedures. Once the four implants have been placed (two in the region of the second and third molars, two near the front of the mouth â€“ see image above), the dentist will affix a non-removable prosthetic dental bridge to the abutments of the implants. This prosthesis is expertly fabricated from molds and X-rays taken of your teeth and jaw during a prior consultation. Its construction from high quality and durable materials enable patients to use their new teeth just as they would their original natural teeth; before they went missing of course! One of the greatest things about All on Four dental implants is that the entire procedure can be completed in as little as a single surgery of a few hours only. So, essentially, All on Four dental implants enable edentulous and near-edentulous patients to get a full set of beautiful, immediately functional and non-removable teeth in one day. And this is a feat that goes without precedent in implant dentistry.
All on Four Dental Implants: Stay Tuned!
All on Four dental implants have drastically changed the way modern dentists approach the treatment of edentulous and near-edentulous patients; in particular those that suffer from advanced periodontitis, or gum disease.
