All-on-four Dental Implants in Edmonton
There are many reasons people experience tooth loss; genetic factors, gum disease, and accidents are but a few. Missing teeth can affect a person’s self-esteem and their quality of life. When multiple teeth are missing, it is also detrimental to the health of the jaw bone.
There is one treatment that provides radiant smiles with the full function of natural teeth. All-on-four dental implants support a full arch prosthetic in the upper or lower jaw. To learn more about how to restore your smile to its natural state, contact Ellerslie Dental Studio in Edmonton.
Negative Impact of Tooth Loss on Oral Health
With the loss of multiple teeth, people soon realize how dramatically it affects their lives. Chewing and speaking can become increasingly difficult, and try to hide the gaps in their mouths can be exhausting.
Very quickly after tooth loss, another problem is posed with the resorption of the jaw bone. When there are no tooth roots to stimulate the jaw, the bone begins to shrink. This can impact facial structure and prematurely age a person’s appearance.
All-On-Four Placement of Dental Implants
It is remarkable that all-on-four dental implants can address the multitude of problems that result from tooth loss. Dental implants are titanium posts strategically placed into the jaw bone, where they begin fusing with the bone through a process called osseointegration.
Because the titanium is bio-compatible with the human body, in about three to four months the implants are securely surrounded by bone growth, providing a strong anchor for a prosthetic replacement of teeth.
All-on-four means that Dr. Goswami uses four implant posts to secure a full arch of teeth. Then a permanent denture is secured onto the posts with abutments.
The result is a permanent prosthetic that returns full function maintains the health of the jaw bone, and provides a beautiful restoration.
All-On-Four Supports Beautiful Restorations
Dentures are identically matched with the surrounding color of gums, and the teeth can be customized with the preferences in shade, shape, and size of the patients. They are just as lustrous and strong as natural tooth enamel.
Good oral hygiene and routine visits to the dentist keep smiles healthy. Most people qualify as candidates for all-on-four dental implants, but there is a small percentage of patients who may need to add volume to their jaw with a bone graft before treatment can proceed or may be excluded due to underlying medical conditions.
