The Perks of All-on-4 from Nobel Biocare
When you lose teeth, your jawbone begins to demineralize and lose volume. Patients with weakened jawbones often need a grafting procedure to be viable candidates for implant placement since successful treatment requires adequate bone density. However, the All-on-4 placement method allows these patients to enjoy their smiles by making strategic use of the available bone.
The All-on-4 method utilizes two straight implants placed at the front of your smile, with the rear posts placed at a 45° angle. This tilting allows patients who have already experienced bone loss to receive dental implants without a grafting procedure. After placement, your full arch prosthetic is applied to the implants and you will be able to enjoy restored function and aesthetics.
What to Expect from Treatment
Drs. Cole and Shelby utilize a CBCT scanner to collect detailed scans of their patients’ current dental anatomy during the initial appointment. From there, your personalized treatment plan is developed.
Once your implants and prosthesis are in place, you will be able to enjoy full function. Patients who choose these fixed bridges do not experience the drawbacks commonly associated with traditional dentures. Your new teeth will stay in place during meals and conversations, providing you with the same dental ability you experienced with your original teeth.
Your new teeth are crafted with your aesthetics in mind. Highly stain-resistant material that resembles natural enamel is used in All on 4 permanent bridges. You will be able to care for your prosthetics during normal routines, rinsing out loose particles and keeping your new teeth clean and bright.
