All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary technique for replacing upper or lower teeth with just four implants. These implants act as a support mechanism for the placement of a new set of fixed teeth. All-on-4 implants are dental prostheses that replace a row of teeth with the help of just four titanium implants that are screwed into the upper and lower jaw and then fixed with dentures on the top. This permanent set of teeth looks and feels like natural teeth, allowing the patient to replace their teeth with effective and reliable treatment, avoiding long-term procedures and traditional dentures. Each design is made of durable materials that mimic the natural shape and appearance of teeth.
Because they're permanently attached to your mouth, you don't have to worry about things moving while you eat. The dental implant itself is a small titanium screw that is placed in the jaw and then supports a single tooth or a bridge of teeth. Once the implants are inserted and tightened to the optimal torsion requirements, the dental surgeon will replace the gum tissue around the implants and close all of the incisions. Replacement teeth (or dental crowns) can be made of resin or porcelain, which is the most durable and recommended material for dental implants. For the conventional dental implant procedure, a full-arch rehabilitation required 6 to 8 implants to support a full fixed bridge.
All-on-4 dental implants are an excellent solution for tooth loss that involves minor surgery that lasts approximately two hours per arch. Some patients may need extensive bone grafts, a sinus lift, or treatment for advanced gum disease before proceeding with a single dental implant procedure. All-on-4 implants, also called full-arch implants, consist of four titanium posts embedded in the jaw at strategic intervals along the arc and attached to a dental plate. If you or a loved one may be a candidate for this life-changing procedure, contact Georgian Dental today to schedule your initial all-inclusive consultation. All on 4 dental implants work by providing a strong anchor to which replacement teeth can be attached.
All-on-4 implants allow you to avoid many of the surgical preparations needed for standard implants. The purpose of these tests and inspections is to ensure that the dentist fully understands the patient's dental health status, thus identifying any underlying issues that need to be addressed or corrected before the start of the All-on-4 procedure. With the All On 4 dental implant procedure, the back implants are tilted 45° toward the back of the mouth and are placed in the anterior maxilla, a region of the jaw with greater bone density.
