What is All-on-Four?
When you're missing multiple teeth it affects the quality of your daily life in many ways. Your digestive health may be compromised because you're not able to properly chew and eat the healthy foods you would normally enjoy. Your confidence may be affected because you feel embarrassed about talking or smiling in front of other people. When you're missing teeth, it's always on your mind and your situation may feel frustrating and even hopeless. The good news is that there is always hope and an all-on-four-bridge in Doylestown may be just the solution you're looking for!
What is an All-on-Four-Bridge?
Dental implants have been revolutionizing tooth replacement over the years, quickly becoming the most popular and effective way to replace a missing tooth. All-on-four-bridges utilize four dental implants which are strategically placed in the jawbone in such a way that they create a stable foundation on which to place a dental bridge that is designed to replace a few missing teeth or an entire arch. The bridge is custom designed to restore your smile with durable and aesthetically appealing prosthetic teeth that function as your natural teeth would. In some cases, teeth can be placed the same day as surgery, eliminating the need for a denture.
What are the Benefits of All-on-Four?
For patients who are missing all of their teeth, a denture has always been their only treatment option. While dentures can immediately restore an entire arch of teeth, they do take some time to get used to. Some patients have difficulty chewing and talking as they're first getting used to their dentures, because there may be movement or slippage with the denture.
All-on-four-bridges offer a firm and secure fit immediately with no slippage or movement during talking or eating. The use of dental implants also helps to keep your jawbone healthy and stimulated, which prevents more bone loss. Dentures actually increase bone deterioration because of the pressure applied during wear.
Because all-on-four treatment requires the use of only four dental implants, it keeps treatment affordable and accessible to most patients. All-on-four boasts a 95% success rate and it truly give patients an option for the best replacement they can invest in.
