Missing a significant amount of teeth can really impact your health and confidence. Across America, there are close to 36 million adults who do not have all of their upper and/or lower teeth.
There are many replacement options to go with, such as dentures. There is also an option that is cost-efficient and gives quick, permanent results. With All-on-4, Dr. Godat and Dr. King can help restore a patient’s smile in one visit!
What is All-on-4?
With All-on-4, only four dental implants need to be placed in the upper or lower jaw in order to secure all of the teeth being replaced. The uniqueness of All-on-4 is that no additional procedures, such as bone grafting, are required.
What makes All-on-4 a good option?
Unlike other restorative dental procedures, All-on-4 has a shorter recovery time which enables patients to enjoy their smiles just one day after their procedure! The reason for this is that the procedure permanently replaces a full arch using only four implants, all done in one appointment.
There are many other advantages to this procedure, listed below:
- There isn’t a need for messy adhesives and temporary dentures
- It doesn’t require bone grafting since it uses the existing bone structure for support
- The implants help prevent further bone loss
- All-on-4 lasts for a lifetime and are easy to care for
