All on Four Dental Implants
All on four dental implants are a great way to fill out your smile when you find yourself lacking more teeth than you have. They provide a great alternative for a permanent full mouth solution that you do not have to worry about removing at the end of each day. Our team are skilled in the implantation of all on four dental implants and are positive that they will create a smile you are proud to show off, just like they have for many of our other clients.
What are they?
All four dental implants are a complete set of artificial teeth that are fitted to just four anchor points within the mouth. Hence the term All (teeth) on Four (anchor points). By having just four anchor points in your mouth, either as existing teeth or implants, we are able to create a full mouth of teeth supported by just these anchor points. They can make a big difference in the facial structure of an individual who has a sunken look due to lack of teeth and will certainly create a beautiful smile.
Who are they designed for?
All on four dental implants were designed for people who have issues with their teeth for example have lost them due to gum disease, they have decayed severely or have badly broken down teeth. As all on four is a complete mouth solution for the appearance of your smile and facial features it is generally only used by those who need this complete solution and not a partial one. They can boost the confidence of an individual immensely, especially when they are coming from a smile that had little to no teeth filling it out.
What is the process?
To have a successful all on four dental implant, firstly the health of the gums needs to be established and treated if necessary. If there are still some teeth in the mouth that are badly damaged, they may require removal, or may potentially be used as the anchor points if they are in good health. Generally with this type of procedure none of the teeth are in good health, which is why four dental implants will be required to be inserted into the jaw. This is what the rest of the teeth are then attached to, giving you the full smile that you have been dreaming of having.
Just because you have artificial teeth does not mean that there is no maintenance involved. This type of thinking is likely what lead to the breakdown of the teeth in the first instance. And let’s not forget the health of your gums! You need to be brushing your teeth daily as well as flossing and the use of a mouth wash that will help to keep your gums healthy. Your health care professional at Dental Implants Boca Raton will give you specific instructions for your maintenance as well as advise when a checkup is due.
