All-on-4 Minimally Invasive, Safe Procedure
If you are like many of our senior patients, you may have one or more missing teeth and could be looking for options other than dentures. This is an exciting time to be in the business of helping people regain beautiful smiles. Not too long ago, missing a tooth as an adult was seen as an unending process, but we at ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center are thrilled to offer our patients all-on-4, minimally invasive technology to replace their missing teeth.
Dental implants are what goes in the jawbone and are made from titanium, which fuses to the bone and encourages regeneration and new growth.
All-on-4 implants are becoming increasingly popular, and you have probably seen many TV commercials telling you that you can get a new, beautiful smile relatively easily.
All-on-4 Minimally Invasive SurgeryBecause you only need four implants to replace the entire upper or lower arch, this is a minimally invasive procedure and relatively safe. Another significant advantage of getting all-on4 implants is that we can do it in just one day, compared to other implants that require multiple visits and follow-ups until you are ready for the final step, getting the new crown.
A dental implant typically consists of three stages.
Advantages of All-on-4 ImplantsOne of the most significant benefits of dental implants, in general, is that they are a permanent solution that, with proper care, can last you a lifetime. All-on-4 implants also prevent bone loss and even help to generate new bone because of titanium's properties. There is no need for periodic adjustments other than keeping your regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene habits at home. Moreover, there isn't any additional bone loss in adjacent teeth.
The fact that we can replace a full arch of upper or lower teeth with only four implants makes this option one of the best available for patients with missing teeth.
