All-on-4 Dental Treatment Lindfield
The All-on-4 treatment concept is a unique implant solution that allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 implants as “anchors”.
All on 4 Dental Implant Lindfield
This technique offers many advantages over traditional dentures.
Easy to care for, the All-On-4 treatment concept can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors. Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures. Patients can often leave the same day with a full arch of teeth, reducing both overall cost and healing time for the patient.
Dental implant placement can help alleviate the sunken look that can occur with bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth in the area around the implant. This process is called osseointegration and can also help prevent future bone loss.
With the All-on-4 treatment concept, there is no plate covering the roof of the mouth, so speaking and eating are more natural and comfortable than with a traditional denture.
What are the advantages of All on 4 dental implants?
They look good – high quality implant supported dentures look just like natural teeth
They’re functional because they’re firmly secured, making it easier to talk and eat an unrestricted diet.
They help you retain a youthful appearance. Bones are similar to muscles; if you don’t stimulate them they shrink. When your jaw bones shrink, it can give you a shrunken, prematurely-aged appearance. Implant supported dentures help to prevent the loss of bone and jaw muscle.
Who is a good candidate for All on 4?
All-on-4 implants can be a great solution for a variety of problems including:
Broken, damaged or decayed teeth – medications, gum disease, accidents and illness are some of the common reasons for reductions in teeth quality. All-on-4 can be a good, cost-beneficial remedy.
Loose dentures – bone shrinkage can occur after tooth loss which can in turn cause loose fitting dentures, particularly on the lower jaw. Other issues such as difficulties with speech can mean that some people don’t cope too well with dentures.
Missing multiple teeth – if you are missing multiple teeth, Allon4 may be a suitable treatment option.
