All on 4 dental implants can be used to restore your entire smile with a single procedure. These implants are ideal for patients who have lost all of their teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, fixed dentures are designed to attach to dental implants, which are secured by the jawbone. They do not need to be removed, and stay strong and secure, which means that you will have a natural bite that allows you to eat all the foods you love without having to worry about the instability common with conventional dentures.dent
The procedure is different from that of conventional implants. Instead of implanting a complete set of implants in each jaw, a process that could be prohibitively expensive, painful, and time-intensive, just four implants are placed. These implants are typically placed at strategic positions and at special angles to maximize contact between the implant and the bone tissue. This ensures they will integrate quickly and effectively with the bone and often eliminates the need for bone grafting. Many patients can have the implants restored the same day they are replaced or soon after. This means you can have your new smile ready to use the same day your implants are surgically placed.
