Fremont patients ask, “What are All-On-Four dental implants?”
In recent years, dental implants have gained great popularity as a replacement tooth option. Dental implants offer many advantages over other tooth replacement methods. For example, dental implants look and feel much more like natural teeth than bridge appliances or dentures. Other methods can slip out of place or will need to be inserted and removed every day, but dental implants can be permanently secured so that patients can almost forget about them. Finally, the implants and the replacement teeth don’t require any additional care after they are placed. Simple brushing, flossing, and dental checkups typically keep the implant and replacement tooth healthy for many, many years.
However, for some patients there are some roadblocks to dental implants. For patients who need to replace an entire set of teeth, implants can be expensive. Others may have a lack of bone density due to gum disease or waiting too long to have the implants placed. When this is the case, the jawbone may not have the right structure or density to support traditional implants, and dentures could be awkward and uncomfortable as they frequently slip and slide.
Now, patients in Fremont, CA, don’t have to give up their dream of having a happy and healthy smile. The doctors at Center for Implant Dentistry are skilled in all of the latest dental implant treatments, including the new “All-On-Four” method.
What are All-On-Four Dental Implants?
Simply stated, All-On-Four dental implants are placed in the four corners of the mouth on which a prosthetic device, such as a denture is placed. Because the implants are placed into the jawbone, they give support to the dentures in order to hold them in place. With All-On-Four dental implants, patients don’t have to worry about eating their favorite foods, or speaking in front of large crowds. Instead, they can enjoy the company of others without worrying about their dentures causing embarrassment. Furthermore, the implants help to keep the jawbone healthy by providing the necessary stimulation to the bone.
At the Center for Implant Dentistry, our team has the skill and the advanced equipment to perform the All-On-Four implants and place the denture over the course of five days. For more information about All-On-Four, call the Center for Implant Dentistry today.
