What are All -On-4 Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are an easy way to replace missing teeth or dentures using modern technology and materials. They are perfect if you have dentures or are missing many of your natural teeth. They can be used either for the top or bottom jaw and immediately replace missing teeth which not only look and feel similar to your natural teeth, but function normally also.
What do All-on-4 Implants involve?
All-on-4 consists of four titanium implants inserted into each jaw. These implants act as a foundation for a bridge. A fixed set of teeth, which will look like your natural teeth, can then be added to the implants replacing your teeth. This procedure can often be undertaken without time consuming and expensive bone grafting procedures and with a high success rate.
What is the advantage of All-on 4 Implants?
With conventional implants teeth can not be build on the implants for 3-4 months. With All-On-4 implants teeth can often be build on the implants within 24 hours of surgery. Surgery can be undertaken and teeth placed on the implants without many months spent waiting to heal. In many cases, All-On-4 Implants can avoid additional surgery such as bone grafting which conventional implants require.
Are these types of implants best for everyone?
No, these implants may not be the best option for you. All options will be discussed during your consultation at Wood Street Specialists Newcastle.
