The term “All-on-4®” is becoming more of a household name, but are you still confused by what it stands for? Dr. Kaz Zymantas offers this revolutionary protocol to his patients with missing teeth and is here to explain what All-on-4, or full mouth dental implants in Naperville, IL, means.
Four Dental Implants
All-on-4 refers to the number of dental implants needed to support a full arch prosthesis. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that function like their natural counterparts. When surgically placed at strategic locations and angles in the jawbone, full mouth dental implants provide a secure and strong foundation for a set of new teeth.
One Life-Like Prosthetic
Full mouth dental implants are restored with a life-like and strong set of artificial teeth. Much like a denture, this prosthesis replaces all failing or missing teeth in one or both arches. However, this prosthesis (or full arch bridge) is secured to the mouth with the dental implants instead of denture paste and natural suction, eliminating the need for material to cover the upper palate of the mouth.
A New Smile in a Single Visit
One of the greatest benefits the All-on-4 protocol provides patients is the ability for Dr. Zymantas to place full mouth dental implants and attach a temporary prosthesis the same day of surgery. Most patients can leave their surgical appointment with provisional teeth that look and feel natural! Once the dental implant treatment site heals, patients can enjoy the full benefits of a permanent prosthesis.
