As the name implies, a complete row of artificial teeth can be supported by just four dental implants. All-on-4 implants can change the look of your entire mouth, restoring both your oral health and also your confidence while replacing all missing teeth in your jaw bone. At times more implants might be needed depending on the patients current jaw bone quantity and quality.
While All-on-4 implants can replace a full row of teeth, single implants can also be used to replace a single missing tooth. Implants can easily support crowns and bridges, making them a great option for patients needing crowns or bridges. With implant support, your natural teeth and artificial teeth will be able to work and look natural.
A strong, healthy jaw bone is needed for dental implants. Bone grafting is a simple way to replace missing jaw bone, making implants an option for more patients today than ever before. Bone grafting is often needed after advanced tooth decay, gum disease, or injury that leads to missing teeth. However, other patients need bone grafts simply due to the shape or density of their bones. Bone grafting might sound intimidating, but it is a simple and painless outpatient procedure.
Looking for a strong yet removable smile option? An implant-supported overdenture might be the right option for you. Implant-supported overdentures combine the best of both worlds. They use implants to retain a removable set of dentures while your gum tissues provide support. The result is a healthy, natural-looking smile with a less-expensive treatment option.
