Articles Patients In London Get Effective Treatment For Missing Teeth
There are many ways teeth can be lost, from sports injuries and accidents, to tooth decay and gum disease. If you lose a tooth, or a number of teeth, there are various tooth replacement options available, including:
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
One of the newest and most innovative treatments on the dental market is All-on-4, which provides solutions to problems commonly associated with dentures.
The implant system uses just four implants to support an entire arch of new, prosthetic teeth. Normally, between 6 and 10 implants are needed but All-on-4 makes use of the strong tissue at front jaw to provide maximum anchorage for the dentures. All-on-4 uses four implants, two at the front of the mouth and two at the back. The implants at the front are angled at 90 degrees and the implants added to the back are placed at 45 degree angles.
What are the benefits of All-on-4?
The benefits of All-on-4 include:
- It allows patients to enjoy the results immediately – Normally, patients who receive dental implants have to wait several months to have their permanent restorations fitted, but with All-on-4 the new teeth can be attached on the same day. This means fewer visits to the dentist, as well as shorter treatment time
- Improved functionality and increased bite power – The dentures are held in place by dental implants, meaning there is never a risk of them coming loose. The strong anchorage enables patients to chew forcefully, giving them more choice when it comes to their diet and also provides them with peace of mind and reassurance
