Get Your Dream Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

 

What are all on four implants ?

 

You do not need a dental implant for each and every one of your missing teeth. All you need is four precisely placed implants on the top of your mouth, and four on the bottom, to restore your full smile. That’s the beauty of the full arch. And because the implant is made of titanium, it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone and function as part of it. So eventually, the dental implant be-comes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong, long-lasting foundation for your new teeth. A strong bridge would be fixed on top of these four implants.

Benefits of ALL-ON-FOUR:

Besides ensuring that your implants are permanently fixed in place, this bone fusion has another important benefit: it can prevent future bone loss in the jaw. This helps to maintain a more youthful facial structure—and better oral health. But perhaps the biggest surprise about the full arch is how quickly it can transform your life.

You may want or even need all-on-4 implants if your current prosthesis is constantly slipping and falling out. Likewise, your prosthetic appliance might be uncomfortable or ill-fitting, causing you to feel pain or discomfort whenever you put it in. The implants easily keep the denture in place so that it won’t slip or budge. This allows for a more natural and realistic-looking smile.
