Dental implants are screw-like appliances made of titanium. They are fitted into the jawbone at the site of a lost tooth to act as an artificial root for a replacement tooth.
At Regency Family Dental, we strive to offer the most effective tooth replacement options for our patients. One of these comes in the form of All-on-4 dental implants which is a revolutionary full-mouth implant system. Using this treatment, only four dental implants are necessary to replace a full set of teeth in each jaw.
How does the All-on-4 Technique Work?
When using the All-on-4 dental implants technique, four dental implants are strategically placed in the jawbone arch; two implants in the front and two at the back, at a specific angle. This offers all of the structural support needed to successfully place a full, fixed set of artificial teeth over the implants. So, instead of having one implant for each tooth, there’s just four in each jawbone.
Benefits of the All-on-4 implants technique:
- It helps people to overcome the discomfort and adjustment associated with removable dentures that can slip, loosen and lose their fit over time.
- Offers a fixed tooth replacement option for people who have lost natural teeth due to age, infections, decay, or disease.
- A temporary set of teeth can be attached to the implants on the day of surgery.
- Recovery time is typically shorter than other implant solutions.
