Why is the All-on-4 Treatment Becoming a Popular Choice?
Posted on 3/7/2022 by Front Desk
After teeth removal or loss of your permanent teeth, the gold standard for tooth replacement remains to be dental implants. Dental procedures are advancing and many procedures are becoming less intrusive, often involving faster recovery periods. For patients who want to get fewer implants, yet they need a full set of teeth replaced, All-on-4 Concept remains a viable solution and for good reasons. The procedure brings nothing short of a transformative change. There are many advantages of All-on-4 procedure for tooth replacement, however here are the biggies.
Fewer Anchor Points
People missing teeth can opt for traditional implants that involve one anchor point for every artificial tooth. However, in situations where you need to replace whole arch of teeth, All-on-4 implants are a better choice. If you were to choose traditional implants, it would mean that you have to get many posts to secure the artificial teeth. With All-on-4 procedure, it reduces the number of anchor implants to secure the teeth. Only four anchor implants are used in each jaw to help support the whole mouth of teeth.
Consistent tooth Appearance
Traditional implants are usually fitted on an as-needed basis, however, with the All-on-4 Concept; the implants replace an entire arch of teeth ensuring a consistent appearance. The texture and color of the artificial teeth are the same. They also wear and tear uniformly, similar to dentures. And because the screws are made of titanium, they seamlessly conform to the jaw. Having fewer implants reduces the chances of experiencing jawbone loss compared to the situations where each tooth has an individual implant post.
To be considered a candidate for All-on-4 implants, you need to have all your upper or lower teeth missing. Dentures are also an option for such patients; however, they require regular maintenance. Dentures are also not a permanent solution. All-on-4 system means that the implants are not removable. It also does not need the same kind of upkeep you find with dentures.
