Do you have tooth loss? There is no doubt that this can affect your smile and even your confidence. Dental implants can help correct this issue. However, if there is any missing bone in your mouth, dental implants may not be long-lasting.

Your dentist in Voorhees Township, NJ can help you get a brand-new smile using this ground-breaking technique to enhance your look and curate a plan specifically for you, especially if you have tooth loss as you are a great candidate for the All-on-four procedure.
Typically, traditional dental implants require a good amount of bone to use as a foundation for implant placement. However, for patients experiencing bone loss for a number of reasons, this may not be the best option for them that is long-lasting.
The All-on-4® dental procedure overcomes this issue by using as little as four dental implants to place a full arch of dental implants on a more efficient and sturdy foundation. This procedure offers a number of convenience factors compared to traditional dental implants, including: Minimized treatment time, Minimized healing time, and Same-day smile transformation.

You have many advantages with getting the All-on-X Dental Implant Treatment, such as being able to Eat All Your Favorite foods; Improving your Oral & Overall Health, and Gaining Your Smile Back!
Unlike the removable dentures and conventional bridges, implant-supported prostheses are considerably stronger and more durable. While traditional dentures require frequent replacement and repairs, your implant-supported prosthesis will serve you for a long time. In fact, according to the American Dental Association, your implants can last for a lifetime if you look after them and maintain good oral hygiene.
With dental implants, you can eat your favorite foods without any difficulty, unlike the removable dentures. The implants are anchored firmly into the jawbone. Therefore, they – and the artificial teeth they support – will not move when you eat anything. Dental implant-supported prostheses also restore your ability to speak clearly and comfortably.
The success of dental implants depends highly on the quality of the underlying jawbone. If the bone tissue is not healthy or strong enough, it will not be able to support an implant. So, dental implants are usually are not given to people who have insufficient jawbone.
Alternatively, people with low-quality jawbone have to undergo a bone grafting or sinus lift procedure to ensure sufficient bone tissue is available to support an implant.
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, This problem has been solved with all-on-four implants. Even if someone does not have sufficient jawbone available, your dentist will strategically place the implants – so that they can still get anchored. In this way, the all-on-four implant-supported bridges save you from expensive and time-consuming surgical procedures.
One of the most significant problems associated with conventional dentures is that they exert pressure on the underlying bone tissue when you wear them. As a result, the bone starts to degenerate faster and becomes weaker and brittle over time.
This reduction in the quality and density of the jawbones also affects one’s facial profile, resulting in increases and facial wrinkles that make one look much older. Thanks to osseointegration, dental implants prevent bone resorption. In fact, they promote bone formation, thereby preserving your smile and jawbone health.
Titanium implants and zirconia or ceramic crowns used for tooth replacement are safe for use in the oral cavity. Unlike the resin or metal-based removable dentures and bridges that leach harmful products and carry a risk of inflammation and allergy, dental implants are completely safe and don’t cause any untoward reaction.
During the first appointment, your dentist will perform a clinical examination to ascertain your eligibility for getting all-on-four. They will also look at your dental records and x-ray images to prepare a detailed treatment plan. In the next appointment, your dentist will make an incision over the soft tissues that cover the jawbone and drill holes at pre-determined sites for implant insertion. Afterward, they will carefully screw in each implant, cover it with a healing cap and suture the soft tissue back. The entire will be performed under sedation so that it will be completely painless.
This surgical site will be left undisturbed to ensure optimal healing. In the meantime, your dentist will place a temporary prosthesis over the implants so that your facial esthetics are not affected and your smile restoration can start! In some cases, dentists choose to attach the permanent prosthesis immediately after implant insertion. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for immediate implant loading.
After a few months, once the implant site has completely healed, your dentist will attach a complete fixed bridge over the implants. That’s it. You are now a proud owner of a brand-new, beautiful smile.
