In today’s world, you have plenty of options when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Because each patient is unique, and every mouth is different, Dr. Trimble offers a variety of options to help you maintain and recreate a natural-looking, white smile. One option that is particularly beneficial for those with significant bone loss in the jaw are All-on-4 dental implants.
One of the main benefits of All-on-4 dental implants, and what makes them so popular, is that an entire mouth of teeth can be restored with just a few dental implants. This means that patients enjoy a brand-new smile in just one day, rather than waiting for several months for individual implants to heal.
All-on-4 dental implants rarely require a bone graft, and because they are placed securely in the jawbone, they never loosen or shift. Many patients are also drawn to the fact that these implants are more affordable than other replacement options.
Benefits for Those With Bone Loss
When a tooth is lost, the root no longer stimulates the jawbone and over time, bone loss may occur. Not only does this cause the teeth to shift and move, but it also means that placing an implant for each individual tooth is difficult. With All-on-4 dental implants, only four implants are required on the top and the bottom, so they are the preferred choice for those who are missing bone in certain spots.
All-on-4 dental implants are titanium and will eventually fuse with the jaw and function as the natural root would. The jaw is stimulated to grow new bone and your face retains its natural structure and shape.
