Missing teeth can impact all aspects of your life. From the health of your smile to the way you interact with your coworkers and friends, missing teeth can take a toll. With recent advancements in dental technology, dental implants have become the go-to for replacing any number of missing teeth.
All-On-Four is a method that combines precise pretreatment planning and at least 4 small implants that optimize healthy bone structure to place a permanent denture. Implants are placed at precise angels determined prior to surgery. Digital imaging and dental technology make All-On-Four possible. Even edentulous patients may be a good fit for All-On-Four, eliminating the need for additional procedures such as bone grafting.
Can All-On-Four be used to secure my denture?
Yes. All-On-Four is commonly used as a solution to secure an ill fit denture. While dentures help improve the bite after tooth loss, securing your denture with implants can provide added stability and improve the aesthetics of your smile. An implant secured denture helps patients enjoy a diet without limitation and reduces the risk of slippage or embarrassment.
Is All-On-Four possible if I have bone loss?
In many cases, yes. Patients who have suffered some degree of bone degradation due to tooth loss or gum disease may still be a candidate for All-On-Four. Dr. Cranham will help patients determine what treatments are necessary to build a stable oral foundation that will be able to support viable dental implants.
Is All-On-Four right for me?
While All-on-Four has made implants a viable option for a wider range of patients, the only way to know if All-On-Four is right for you is by visiting a dentist with experience and training in implant dentistry. Dr. John Cranham of Chesapeake, VA offers full-service implant treatment plans from the comfort of his state of the art dental facility.
