When one receives a dental implant there is a small titanium screw that replaces the root, part of the missing tooth. The screw fits inside of the jawbone perfectly. This procedure of placing the screw is considered a minor surgery and is required in order to place the implants. When the screw, or implant is properly placed into your jaw, we then attach a crown. Aesthetically, you will have a tooth that looks realistic and it is functional for you.
The great thing about All-On-4™ dental implants is that you don’t need to place an implant for every single tooth that you are missing. All we will do is give you four perfectly placed implants for your top arch and four implants on your bottom arch. Between the 8 implants in the whole mouth, your smile will be completely restored. Another great benefit of using the titanium implant is that this material comes with the unique ability to fuse. The living bone in your jaw will fuse to the titanium screw. This is great because you will never have to worry about your denture falling out. Your new smile will be long-lasting, and strong and a permanent fix.
In addition to the fusion that takes place with the implant and your jaw bone, there is another benefit. The fusion prevents any future loss of bone that could possibly happen in the jaw. You will be able to enjoy a more youthful facial structure because of this procedure and don’t forget about better oral health! Will All-On-4™ dental implants, you will love all the amazing benefits, but you will most likely be grateful for the transformation that comes into your life being confident in your smile.
