Georgetown area dentist offers all-on-4 dental implants as a tooth replacement option for patients
Replacement of missing teeth is vital to ensure the proper function of the smile, as well as the appearance. Georgetown, TX area patients who are interested in tooth replacement options have plenty to choose from with the team at 4405 Dental Studio. Patients who are missing all the teeth on the upper and/or lower jaw may find that full dentures alone are not enough. Instead, they may be told consider all-on-4 dental implants as a stabilization solution for full dentures.
All-on-4 dental implants explained
The team of 4405 Dental Studio describes these implants as an option to stabilize a specific type of full denture. Dental implants are tiny metal posts that are placed along the jaw during oral surgery. These posts become one with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. The implants are used as a foundation and stabilizer for a full denture that is custom-made for the patient.
What are the benefits of all-on-4 dental implants?
The primary benefit of using these implants is the ability to have a tooth replacement option for the entire smile that is strong, stable, and fully functional. Other advantages include:
- Wise investment
- Maintenance of jawbone
- Avoidance of sunken jaw over time due to bone resorption
- Easy to care for
- Optimum functionality
- Eliminates the need for dental adhesives
Who is a candidate?
Just like those who are considering dental implants, patients thinking about using all-on-4 implants to restore their smiles will want to have x-rays completed to ensure they have enough jawbone for successful oral surgery. Patients should also have a smile free from disease and cavities.
