Just a few years ago, if a dentist were to say ‘it is possible to have brand new teeth in one day,’ they were probably being overly optimistic. What was almost impossible then, can now happen, thanks to advancements in implant dentistry and the All-on-4 dental treatment.
The All-on-4 procedure allows dentists to replace a full upper or lower arch of missing teeth using just four implants as anchors. Dental implants actually fuse with the jawbone, preventing bone deterioration and further tooth loss. In addition, All-on-4 dental implants are very comfortable and lightweight, allowing patients to eat and speak more comfortably than is possible with dentures. All-on-4 dental implants in Basingstoke are available in dental practices specialising in implant dentistry, such as Glenholme Dental Centre.
How does it work?
All-on-4 is a minimally invasive way of placing a full mouth of dental implants by only using four implants to support a full arch of fixed, non-removable, replacement teeth. All-on-4 dental implants in Basingstoke allow patients to have a full set of teeth without having to undergo multiple surgeries and replacements to place a full set of single dental implants in their mouth.
The greatest thing about this treatment is that it can be completed in one visit to the dentist. This is an innovative advance that allows dentists who have lost many teeth to regain their oral function without undergoing multiple procedures. At the same time, this treatment provides patients with a set of teeth that look, feel and function just like their natural teeth.
Who should get All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are ideal for denture wearers. Unlike conventional dentures, All-on-4 dental implants do not have to be removed for cleaning and function just like natural teeth. There is no need for messy adhesives or uncomfortable metal to be placed in the mouth.
Even more importantly for patients who have lost most of their teeth, dental implants are ideal for patients who want to eat their favourite foods without limitations. With All-on-4 dental implants in Basingstoke, patients do not need to worry about loose dentures or sensitive gums anymore. Not to mention that All-on-4 dental implants strengthen the jaw and protect it against deterioration caused by missing teeth.
