Even patients who have experienced bone loss can utilize the All-on-4 method because it maximizes available bone tissue by using just four implants. This technique is over a decade old and has a 98.5% success rate.
Before the procedure begins, you will be given a numbing agent to ensure that there is no pain or discomfort. Four dental implants are then placed in strategic locations where bone density is the highest. Once the implants have been put in place, you will be given a temporary set of implant supported dentures that day. After about three to four months, once the implants have become integrated with the bone, you will be given a permanent set of teeth.
All-on-4 dental implants offer patients several benefits:
- •Shorter recovery period
- •Lower overall expenses
- •No need for bone grafting procedures in most cases
- •Easy maintenance
- •Greater stability than normal dentures
- •Sustainable results
- •Stimulation of bone and tissue growth
- •Increased confidence
- •Improved appearance
One of the biggest causes of bone loss is tooth loss itself. This is why treatment is very important. In areas where tooth loss has occurred, bone and tissue deterioration become issues. This is because there is little to no stimulation to encourage a healthy jaw. The result is bone atrophy. Dental implants provide needed stimulation in areas where it is most important. Because the All-on-4 method uses dental implants in Jacksonville, FL residents are able to combat bone loss and preserve the facial structure.
