All on 4 Dental Implants
All on 4 Dental Implants
Why have all-on-four dental implants become so popular? Simply because so many people are missing all their top or bottom teeth these days. In fact, more than 35 million Americans are currently missing all the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw. Instead of choosing removable (and somewhat unstable) dentures, more people are opting to have a full mouth restoration and have the all-on-four implants installed. This makes perfect sense, because it's a fairly simple procedure, and once it's been done, it allows for a whole set of new teeth to be installed.
This in turn will provide you with a natural appearance, and all the functionality that your original set of teeth provided. Better yet, the implants will actually bond with your jawbone to become a permanent part of your mouth, so they will feel completely natural and will perform that way too. Because titanium bonds so well with your jawbone, the implants will be able to serve as a solid foundation for the new teeth which will be emplaced, and you can count on them being reliable and functional for the remainder of your lifetime. It also helps to prevent any bone loss which might occur to the jawbone in the future, and that will allow you to enjoy better oral health the rest of your days.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How are all-on-four implants different from traditional implants?
A: All-on-four implants require only four dental implants to be installed, regardless of how many teeth are being replaced on either your upper or lower jaw. Ordinarily, one implant per tooth might be necessary, but the all-on-four method limits this to four implants, even if all teeth on either jaw are being replaced.
Q: How long does the all-on-four procedure take?
A: Under normal circumstances, it will take between 2.5 and 3 hours to install the four implants necessary to replace the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw. During the procedure, patients typically feel nothing more than a little pressure, because a local anesthetic will be administered.
Q: What is the success rate of the all-on-four procedure?
A: When all-on-four dental implants are installed, the rate of success is approximately 98%, which means almost every procedure will conclude with positive results.
Q: Who is a good candidate for all-on-four dental implants?
A: Almost anyone who requires replacement of most of the teeth on top or bottom. Age is not a factor when considering effective candidacy.
