All-on-4 Dental Implants
For the residents of Salt Lake City, Utah, we offer multiple restorative dentistry solutions. One of the most popular and least invasive ways to transform your smile through restorative dentistry is All-on-4 dental implants.
To completely comprehend this excellent method of tooth replacement, you must first understand what a dental implant is. An implant is a tiny titanium screw that replaces the root of a missing tooth by inserting it into your jawbone. The implants must be inserted through minor surgery. A crown is affixed to the implant after it has been placed, giving you an extraordinarily realistic-looking and functional artificial tooth. Because the implant is titanium, it has the remarkable ability to connect to living bone and function as if it were a natural part of the body. As a result, the dental implant eventually integrates into the jawbone, providing a solid, long-lasting basis for your new teeth.
If you have multiple teeth that need to be replaced, the wonderful thing about implants is that you do not need one for each tooth. At 3rd South Dental, we can give you a full, brand new smile through two new arches of artificial teeth that are secured by four dental implants on the bottom and top dental arches.
All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are arches of artificial teeth and gums made to rest on the natural gums in your mouth. Although dentures give you a new, beautiful smile, it is common for patients to experience denture slippage that can cause mouth sores. It is also possible that the bone can start to deteriorate through the lack of stimulation to the jawbone, usually caused by chewing.
With All-on-4 implants, there is no slippage, and it can help maintain the health and overall structure of your jawbones.
Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants
- Immediate Results: Although the placement and healing time for All-on-4 implants may take some time, you will restore all functions once you receive your complete set of teeth. Your dental implant will improve overall comfort and teeth stability all at once.
- Permanent Smile: The All-on-4 dental implant surgery results in a permanent set of teeth with an implant-supported retained bridge that is not detachable. You will not need to remove your dental implants, and your teeth will be able to last a lifetime.
- Eliminate Potential Oral Issues: By lowering your risk of periodontal disease, a bacterially-induced chronic infection, and inflammatory illness, the All-on-4 dental implant surgery can help you have a healthier mouth and body. Heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer's, diabetes, and other chronic disorders are all linked to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can be fended off with dental implants since they restore your mouth to a more natural state.
- Easier Care: Having All-on-4 dental implants do cleaning and maintaining a healthy mouth easier. Your new teeth will remain healthy with brushing, flossing, and regular visits to our office for cleanings.
