One in five people in the world is missing one or more teeth for different reasons. A tooth is an organ of your body, although you only become aware of its value when it is missing. You will experience a decline in quality of life as you lose teeth.
Implants made of titanium are surgically placed into your jaw to support a permanent set of fabricated teeth. These teeth look, feel, and function exactly as natural teeth do.
A single jaw can be replaced with all of its teeth using only four implants through an all-on-4 procedure.
Understanding the All on 4 implants
One complete arch of teeth can be replaced by four dental implants, which are small titanium screws inserted into the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. Implants are inserted with minor surgery, and after the implant is in place, a crown is installed to give you an extraordinarily realistic-looking and functional replacement tooth.
What's so amazing about dental implants is that you do not need one for every single missing tooth. Instead, all you need are four precisely placed implants. They are put on the top of your mouth and the bottom for complete smile restoration.
In addition, because titanium is a biocompatible metal, it will fuse with living bone and function as part of it. The result is that your new teeth are anchors to the jawbone that will last a lifetime.
How is it Different From a Normal Implant Procedure?
In contrast, traditional implant techniques use between six and eight implants in each arch, whereas the All-on-4 technique uses only four implants per arch. A third advantage is that the All-on-4 procedure uses the natural support of your bone by placing the implants at an angle.
How Long Will an All-on-4 Dental Implant Last?
The post of the All-on-4 implants should not need replacing; however, your dentures may need to be replaced daily due to daily wear and tear. Implant posts work well over the long term and can last for 20 years or longer with the appropriate care.
According to published studies, dental implants with the All-on-4 technique have a 98% success rate. All-on-4 dental implants give you permanent teeth you can eat from,, just like natural teeth. No one will be able to tell the implants from your natural teeth unless you reveal them.
