Time Can Be on Your Side!
Some of our patients have told us they hesitated to seek dental treatment because they thought it would require a major investment of time to complete. Although procedures used depend upon each patient, we have solutions that can reduce the amount of time involved in some situations. If you have lost most, or all, of your teeth, read on to learn more about a treatment that can give you back your smile in as little as one day.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
Dental implants are one of the strongest and most permanent treatments for missing teeth replacement. When a full-mouth reconstruction is necessary, rather than replace each tooth with a separate implant, a less invasive approach to consider is to have a full arch bridge attached permanently with as few as four implants. Typically, two implants are fixed near the front of the mouth and two are toward the back to distribute the force evenly over the bridge. It’s possible to restore your whole mouth in one surgery in just one day and still get the benefits of the dental implant, including:
- Integration into the jawbone for secure permanent placement that provides stability
- Less gum sensitivity
- Improved functionality in speaking and eating
- Natural look and feel
- Help in preventing bone loss
- Easy to brush and floss, which means less worry about plaque and gum disease
