All on 4 is a dental implant system that works on the principle of anchoring in a new set of teeth (restoration) securely on 4 implants. The implants are strategically placed in the jaw to allow the restoration to be carefully balanced and secured in place by the implants.
Every persons mouth is different and also the current situation they find themselves with their teeth. When placing dental implants, there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration to ensure that they are successful and can have a long life (with good aftercare and maintenance).
At the free consultation our dental implant dentist will examine your mouth and teeth, then discuss suitable options from his findings. In many cases, there may be multiple options that could meet your needs, each bringing their own benefits and restrictions. We will always explain each option in detail and will then provide you with a treatment plan outlining the options that was discussed.
One of the most common complaints associated with a lost tooth is the affects it then continues to have on the remaining teeth and surrounding sites. This is known as “bone resorption”. This is when the jawbone area of a lost tooth starts to fade away causing the surrounding teeth to become loose and eventually fall out. This effect does very from patient to patient, so the speed at which it happens will vary. This is why denture wearers quite often find their well fitted snug dentures, start to become loose and ill fitting.
One of the main benefits associated with dental implants (other than the stability), is the fact that the implants fuse with the jawbone and promotes healthy bone growth to stop the affects of bone resorption. If you are interested in finding out if this is an ideal treatment for you, please do not hesitate to call us and book your free consultation today.
