All on Four Dental Implants

Published on July 10th, 2019

Smiles melt away animosity and express inner emotion. Unfortunately, when smiles become a source of embarrassment and pain, people suffer. Naturally, everyone wants a nice smile. So when teeth must be replaced, you’ll want to restore your smile to its ideal state. For those who need tooth replacement, dental implants in Hyde Park may be the answer.

Not long ago, the options for teeth replacement were far from ideal. Traditional dentures failed to stimulate the jaw, causing loss of jawbone and facial caving. Advances in technology and procedures led to a technique in which an entire row of new teeth was supported by four well-placed implants. This type of implant came to be known as All on Four implants.

The placement of implants in the jawbone meant the jaw was sufficiently stimulated, which prevented bone loss.

How does All on Four work?

To understand the All on Four technique for replacing teeth, we must take a step back and understand implants. Implants are small titanium screws placed into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. The insertion of an implant requires minor surgery. After the implant is placed, a crown is also placed, forming a natural appearance and a high functioning tooth.

The beauty of the All on Four technique is that each replaced tooth does not require an implant. Four well-placed implants in the top and bottom of your mouth are enough to ensure that your entire smile is restored. Moreover, the titanium implants can fuse together with the living bone already in your jaw. This means no shrinkage of the jawbone as it is continuously stimulated.

Benefits over Traditional Dentures

We recommended everyone use dental implants in Hyde Park if they’re in need of a tooth replacement solution. Traditional dentures can interfere with chewing, drinking, and even speaking. They require adhesive to keep in place and must be taken out to be cleaned. The slipping and sliding can hurt gums. All on Four dental implants are kept securely in place. They are cared for and feel just like natural teeth.
