DO YOU HAVE A LOOSE DENTURE? IS IT AFFECTING THE WAY YOU EAT?
The term All-on-4 refers to “all” teeth being supported “on four” dental implants, you may need more than 4 however this will be discussed at your first initial consultation. This is a surgical and technical prosthodontics procedure for total rehabilitation of the edentulous (patients lacking teeth) or for patients with badly broken down teeth, decayed teeth or compromised teeth due to gum disease.
TAKE AWAY THE STRESS: Dentures can be
uncomfortable for everyday wear, and the reduced
bite-strength means that despite replacing the missing
teeth, patients still struggle to eat their favourite foods
and it can be a constant worry that their denture can
become loose while speaking or enjoying a meal.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
The procedure involves placing implants into the anterior maxilla a region of the jaw with higher bone density. This allows the implants to be angled at up to 45 degrees, which increases support and can help overcome some bone deficiencies while lessening the need for bone grafting procedure. Because of this All-On-4 dental implants provide the highest success rate for dental implants.
