If you’re ready to improve your oral health, call our office to schedule a consultation with one of our highly skilled dentists.
How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
All-On-4 implants work differently than traditional dental implants. If you’ve been told you do not have sufficient bone support, and you need a denture on the bottom, you will first need a bone graft to create additional support before we place 4 or 6 implants to support your new denture.
With All-On-4, we will place two vertical implants into the front of your jaw and two diagonal implants that will face the front. This will eliminate the need for a bone graft because we’re using the denser part of your jaw to support the denture.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?
Before, patients who wanted dental implants were required to have good oral health and strong bone. While both are still incredibly important, those who do not meet the “normal” requirements can still receive All-On-4 implants. Your dentist in East Islip will work with you to determine the best course of action as it pertains to your oral health, but don’t be surprised if you learn that you are, indeed, a qualified candidate for All-On-4 dental implants.
What Are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?
If you’re looking to replaces your missing teeth with dentures in East Islip, you’ll want to consider the benefits of choosing All-On-4 Implants. They include:
- Increase stability: If you want 70% or more of your chewing ability restored, All-On-4 implants are the way to go. Traditional, removable dentures only give you maybe 20% restored chewing function.
- Improved oral health: The dental implants used with All-On-4 keep the entire structure in place without putting additional pressure on any remaining, healthy structured. Also, your implants will stimulate your bone to prevent deterioration, and as a result, keep your bone and gum tissue healthy.
- Long-lasting: Opting for dentures or a bridge will require that you have replacements every 5 years or more. With All-On-4, your tooth replacement will last decades or longer with proper care and maintenance.
All-On-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants
There are multiple benefits to having dental implants as your tooth replacement solution. Not only do they increase stability, but you’ll have a fully restored smile for a longer span of time. However, if you do not like the idea of having a bone graft before receiving your implants, this is where All-On-4 makes all the difference because there is no need for additional dental work.
