All-on-4 Dental Implants in Southlake & Arlington
Today, it’s no longer necessary to have one dental implant placed for every natural tooth lost in order for patients to reap this modern technology’s invaluable, enduring health and aesthetic benefits. Dr. Doctor offers the innovative and state-of-the-art All-On-4 dental implant technique that simplifies your procedure down to four strategically placed implants, minimizing the need for time-consuming bone grafting procedures and giving you back a confident, durable smile that can be relied on. In fact, you can have your custom-made prosthetic placed on the same day as the initial surgical procedure, greatly improving oral comfort and function right away. With this kind of denture, your natural looking smile will have the added advantage of allowing you to speak, chew, smile and laugh without ever worrying that your prosthesis might slip or fall out.
Restoring Your Smile with All-on-4 Dental Implants
To begin the step-by-step process for All-On-4 Dentures, Dr. Doctor will examine your jaw to ensure that you have adequate bone volume. The success of All-On-4 dental implants in Arlington largely depends on adequate bone density to provide a secure anchor and enough bone tissue to integrate with the implants. Just like single implants, All-on-4 dental implants must fuse with the surrounding bone tissue. Therefore, a healthy jawbone is essential.
The Foundation of a Beautiful Smile
Only four implants are needed to secure your new dentures. The position of each implant is planned to take the best advantage of bone volume in your jaw so the denture is firmly held in place. The implants are usually slightly angled for greater security. They are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that allows the implanted post to integrate with surrounding bone tissue just as a natural tooth root would.
Before you leave the surgeon’s office, you’ll be given a temporary set of dentures. These will protect your gum tissue during healing and provide you with a complete smile.
The healing process will require several months. Then, you’ll return to see your dentist in Southlake to have him attach your All-on-4 dentures. Your dentures will have a metal carriage along the underside with fittings that attach to the dental implants.
All-on-4 dental implants give you a full and functional smile that requires the same care as natural teeth. Maintain a strict oral hygiene routine at home and schedule regular dental checkups with the dentist.
Another Advantage of All-on-4 Dental Implants
In addition to securing your dentures, All-On-4 dental implants also stimulate healthy new bone tissue growth in your jaw. Without stimulation from roots, your jaw can atrophy and begin to lose volume and shape. Consequently, the contours of your face can change and you may begin to look more aged. All-On-4 implants help to prevent this from happening.
