Benefits of All-on-4® Treatment Concept
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a permanent full dental bridge for patients missing all of their teeth on one or both arches. This provides patients with a full set of teeth prosthetic dentures that are designed to stay permanently in place. The difference between the All on 4 and traditional loose dentures is considerable. The benefits include significantly improved function, comfort and even better oral health. Working with our staff at Pine Belt Periodontics, PLLC, we can provide our edentulous patients with a better alternative using the All-on-4® Treatment Concept.
The All on 4 system utilizes dental implants to permanently stabilize a denture in place. This means that your denture shouldn’t slip, rock, or come loose; it will stay right where it belongs. After a period of healing, patients can chew their regular diet again. This is due to the implants that are used. The All on 4 system is placed with four dental implants that are longer than typical implants, designed to reach denser bone. The implants are placed at an angle to capture the most bone possible for a secure hold.
The benefits of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept include:
Unlike other implant procedures, the All on 4 system is completed in one day. After completing a treatment plan, we can set your implants and denture all in one appointment. For most patients, there is no need to grow new bone.
Most patients are approved for All on 4 treatment, though candidacy is dependent on the patient’s ability to heal at a reasonable rate. Our team is happy to discuss proper healing, and what we need to see. Oftentimes, we can guide a patient on the necessary steps to increase their healing rate. The first step is scheduling a consultation.
