All on 4® Treatment Concept
If you are one of the millions of Americans who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth, then you are in luck. Mor Smiles is excited to introduce the All-on-4 treatment concept, a revolutionary alternative to dentures and bridges.
What Is the All-on-4 Treatment Concept?
You may have heard of dental implants, small titanium “screws” that fuse with your living jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. Implants typically replace just a single tooth. The All-on-4 treatment is different. Instead of single implants, there are just four implants - two on the bottom, and two on top.
Deciding if the All-on-4 Treatment is Best for You
The All-on-4 treatment offers a number of advantages over traditional options like dentures and bridges. Dentures are prone to slipping in your mouth and are not as durable as implants. Dentures also require far more maintenance, including nightly cleanings, special cleaning solution, adhesive, and more. Worst of all, your bone actually decays beneath dentures, which can dramatically change the shape of your face as your facial structure collapses. Thanks to All-on-4’s implants the health of your jawbone is maintained, so you can keep a healthy, young face.
The All-on-4 treatment concept is for patients missing all of their teeth who want a fast, cost-effective solution that is also built to last. With All-on-4, you can usually have the use of your teeth restored immediately, so that you can talk, eat, laugh, smile, and live life normally again. Even if you still have some of your teeth left you may be a good fit for the All-on-4 treatment. Severe and advanced damage, such as from gum disease, acid reflux, or tooth decay, can mean that it is a better idea to extract the teeth rather than try and save them. In these instances, All-on-4 is a great way to remove your unhealthy teeth and have an immediate replacement.
What to Expect During the All-on-4 Treatment
If you qualify, an All-on-4 treatment can be done as quickly as just one visit to our office. Other times we may ask you to come in more than once so we can ensure that the procedure goes smoothly and will give you the best results. One of the advantages of the All-on-4 treatment, though, is that it is often quicker than conventional dental implants. We will start with a series of exams and scans. After that, we will extract any unhealthy teeth that are in the way. The four implants will be placed, and permanent crowns will go on top of the implants.
