All-On-4 Dental Implants — Evansville, WI
Achieve the Strong, Stable Smile You Deserve
If you’re missing all your teeth, traditional removable dentures are no longer your only option for a complete smile. Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth loss solution that can replace one, several, or a whole arch of missing pearly whites with incredibly natural looking, feeling, and functioning results. For patients who are missing all their teeth and don’t have enough jawbone density for a traditional implant denture, All-On-4 dental implants offer a way to help you achieve the strong, stable smile you deserve! Read on to learn more and call us today to schedule your dental implant consultation.
How Do All-On-4 Dental Implants Work?
First, it’s important to understand what a dental implant is. A dental implant is a small titanium post that can be surgically placed into your jawbone to restore the roots of a missing tooth. It can then be topped with a crown, bridge, partial, or full denture to replace any number of missing teeth. However, your jawbone needs to be adequately dense enough to support a dental implant. This is often a problem for patients with severe tooth loss, as the jawbone naturally begins to deteriorate once a tooth goes missing.
All-On-4 dental implants can replace a full arch of missing teeth with minimal jawbone density. Four strategically placed dental implants are positioned in the parts of your jaw that are naturally the densest. The posterior implants are placed at 45-degree angles to provide maximum stability. This way, patients can enjoy all the benefits of an implant denture even without a strong jawbone.
Am I A Candidate for All-On-4 Dental Implants?
Fortunately, even if you don’t qualify for an implant denture because of inadequate jawbone strength, you are likely a good candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. You’ll need to be in good health and free of oral health issues like gum disease and dental infections, as these factors influence how likely your dental implants will be successful. Most patients who typically would need a preliminary bone graft for an implant denture may be able to skip it thanks to the unique method of All-On-4 dental implants!
Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants
As the only tooth replacement option to restore the entire structure of a missing tooth, dental implants offer a variety of important benefits like:
- Virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth in every way
- Can restore 80% or more of your natural biting force
- Will never slip or pop out of place at embarrassing times
- Stops jawbone deterioration and prevents a sunken, aged facial appearance
- Can potentially last a lifetime with minimal care
All-On-4 VS Traditional Dental Implants
Alongside all the benefits afforded by dental implants themselves, All-On-4 dental implants offer even more advantages, such as:
- Can potentially help you skip a preliminary bone graft
- Fewer implants are needed, meaning faster placement and recovery
- In many cases, you’ll be able to receive a new denture the same day your implants are placed!
