Are you missing all or most of your teeth and are wondering which treatment option would be best for you? Are you hesitant to go ahead with traditional dentures because of concerns about their comfort, esthetic, and fit? At El Paso Periodontics & Implant Specialists in El Paso, TX we’re here to tell you about an option that delivers a natural feel and look: All-on-4®️ dental implants!
What Are All-on-4®️ Dental Implants?
The All-on-4® is comfortable and is designed to fit perfectly to your individual jaw shape and level of oral health. Because the appliance is implanted directly into the jawbone, wearers never have to worry about it falling out, shifting, or becoming uncomfortable during regular activities like eating and chewing.
This treatment is frequently advertised but often misunderstood. The All-on-4®️ procedure provides a full set of upper or lower teeth using just four dental implants and is completed in one day. This procedure is an excellent solution for providing a full arch fixed and permanent dentition for the patients missing the majority of their teeth. It is a procedure that uses the patient’s existing bone and with tilting the posterior implants to avoid the need for a bone graft, makes it a more comfortable and less invasive procedure than traditional procedures.
How Is All-on-4®️ Different?
All-on-4®️ implants require only four individual implants to support bridgework, and bone grafting and sinus lifts are not required. This is possible because the All-on-4®️ implant posts are inserted at an angle, which allows for longer implant posts to be used. This produces a strong, durable base for your new teeth with fewer implants needed- which means shortened treatment time and quicker results for you!
There are many reasons why someone would choose to use the All-on-4® system to better repair dental damage and restore a smile. Instead of needing to go through the process of getting partial or complete dentures, someone who picks the All-on-4® system can have a complete smile without needing to wear an uncomfortable prosthesis or go through the process of needing to remove it for cleaning.
Benefits Of All-on-4®️ Implants
- No need for bone grafts or sinus floor elevation procedures
- Shortened treatment time
- A quick, one to two hour-long procedure
- Lower costs than treatment with more implants in addition to bone grafting procedures
