Do you have ill fitting partial or full dentures? Do you have hopeless teeth and an unattractive smile due to gum disease? Do you have multiple missing teeth? Do you have intermittent pain that makes chewing food difficult, which could stop you from eating many of the foods you once enjoyed? "Teeth in a Day," otherwise known as "All-on-4" may be a treatment option for you.
The All-on-4 treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental fixed bridge supported by only four implants. With less implants needed, overall treatment time is reduced. The unique solution ensures greater stability in bone, reducing the need for bone grafting surgery. Typically, the dentist will place a set of provisional teeth on the same day of treatment. These provisional teeth look and feel much like natural teeth, and you can lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After 4 months of healing, a final bridge will be placed. Your quality of life, confidence, and comfort is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again.
All-on-4 is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies in which four implants have been inserted to support a full replacement arch. The tilting of implants has been used in clinical practice for over a decade with favorable results.
