Many people qualify for this procedure. It is usually quite straightforward and you can walk out the same day with a fresh, new and beautiful smile. There are a few things that we need to identify before the procedure takes place so that we know there is a minimal chance of rejection of the treatment.
Any adult who is of sound health can qualify for this treatment. There is no upper age limit which allows the many seniors who have full dentures to enjoy the benefits that the all-on-four procedure can provide.
All-on-four simply means that four of these implants can hold an entire set of dentures permanently. Two will be placed on the top and two are placed on the bottom. This results in minimal recovery and surgery time whilst providing optimal support and strength.
There is a possibility that the jaw bone has receded to a point where there many be the requirement for us to perform another procedure prior to this treatment. The jaw bone naturally recedes over time when it is no longer stimulated by a natural tooth. Dentures are also unable to provide the kind of stimulation the jaw bone needs.
What exactly does the procedure entail?
By inserting a metal rod into the site of the original tooth root, these implants serve as replacement roots that a crown, bridge or denture can be permanently fixed onto.
Should there be a need for a bone graft to go ahead prior, there simply needs to be wait for this to heal before continuation of the procedure.
The rod fuses with the jaw bone as it heals, providing the jaw the right kind of simulation it needs in order to continue renewing it’s cells. It also provides a sturdy and strong support for the false tooth to be attached to, so that you do not have to worry about chewing and eating or having to stick to soft foods for the remainder of your life.
This treatment fits in naturally with your life and they are virtually undetectable from other teeth. There is little care other than a regular proper oral hygiene routine needed in order to maintain them, including regular visits to your hygienist who can properly clean the site to reduce any chances of infection.
