All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Dental implants are becoming more and more popular with patients who are missing some or all their teeth. With aggressive marketing campaigns, people are more aware than ever about their options for tooth replacement. At Salem Dental Arts we are proud to offer All-on-4 treatment concept for patients who are interested in improving the look of their smiles.
Dental Implants for Teeth Replacement
According to the latest data, millions of Americans are missing at least one tooth, with many missing all their upper and lower teeth. Many of these people choose a tooth replacement option, such as dentures, which needs constant adjustments with new tooth and bone loss.
Dental implants are one of the most revolutionary advancements in dentistry because they not only replace missing teeth, but they can stop bone loss. Implants are made of titanium, a material that's ideal because it fuses with the bone and promotes more bone growth. These titanium rods are placed in the jawbone to support the crowns with a connector. The implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, making them a desirable option for our patients.
All-on-4 Treatment Concept Option
One of the most critical improvements to dental implant technology is the All-on-4 treatment concept. This procedure is for patients who need a full replacement of their upper or lower teeth. All-on-4 dental implants receive the name from the way in which the devices are placed in the jawbone.
Patients receiving this treatment need four rods or anchors to hold the full device in place. In many instances, patients getting this type of treatment need other surgeries to prepare their jawbone to receive the implants successfully. With the All-on-4 treatment concept, these additional procedures aren't required because the titanium rods are inserted at an angle which makes the recovery time faster.
Advantages of All-on-4 Treatment Concept
The most significant benefit for patients who choose this tooth replacement option is the reduced number of surgeries. With the All-on-4 treatment concept the implants are inserted into the existing bone.
Moreover, this is the less invasive implant method because we can complete it with one surgical procedure, reducing the recovery time. Also, the All-on-4 treatment concept is the least expensive of the dental implant options available to patients.
Another advantage of using the All-on-4 treatment concept is that it reduces the amount of time the patient spends in our office. This adds to the general satisfaction seen from patients who opt for this procedure. In general, the All-on-4 treatment concept has been very well received by patients who have gone through it with our surgeon.
Once you choose this treatment option, we will go through a full evaluation of your oral and overall health. You will need scans and x-rays to determine the condition of your jawbone and which size implants are best for you. As with any other surgical procedure, there is a risk of infection and excessive bleeding, so you will have to sign medical waivers to undergo surgery. Our team of surgeons has been performing this surgery for many years, and we have an extremely high satisfaction rating from patients who have chosen this option.
