A guide to All-on-4 dental implants in Birmingham
Thirty years ago, few people had a clue what ‘All-on-4’ dental implants were, now everyone looking to replace their teeth turn to this groundbreaking treatment for help.
Our team at St Pauls Square Dental Practice are providers of All-on-4, so why not upgrade your dentures for a device that is more reliable and permanent?
All-on-4 will provide you with a full set of brilliant white teeth using just four implants!
A gap in the market called for an alternative to ordinary dentures to replace entire sets of teeth, which is how All-on-4 dental implants, otherwise referred to as implant-supported bridges, came into being.
The concept behind this idea is straightforward and draws some parallels with regular dental implants, only the number of titanium screws used in the procedure is multiplied by four. Four titanium screws are anchored to the top and bottom jaw, two in the front and two in the back. Then the dentures are attached, securely fastened into place.
How healthy do I need to be for All-on-4 dental implants in Birmingham?
Unlike regular dental implants in Birmingham that require you to have sufficient bone and healthy gums, All-on-4 is used to treat patients with all kinds of mouth issues.
We might be able to help you whether your gums are riddled by infection, your teeth are bad, or you have suffered from substantial bone loss.
Are bone grafts required?
As a result of losing teeth, your jawbone begins to deteriorate from lack of use.
For single dental implants, you need enough bone to insert a titanium screw. If you don’t have this, you might be required to undergo bone graft surgery, which at the end of the day, is more money out of your pocket and extends the time it takes for you to boast a new set of teeth.
All-on-4 eliminates the need for bone grafts because four dental implants are used which are inserted in whatever bone there is available, making it a cost-effective and time-sensitive alternative to replacing your teeth one by one. Skip the many hours spent in the dentist’s chair for a single session, whereby you can flaunt your new teeth on the same day of surgery.
Receive new teeth on the same day of surgery
Our dentist understands that you do not want to wait for your dental implants to heal before you can enjoy your new teeth, which is why we will attach temporary ones for the duration of recovery.
Closely resembling real teeth, no one will know that you are using a prosthesis.
