Missing teeth can harm your oral and emotional health in several ways. While dentures make a good temporary solution, they can have their downfalls. If you have most or all of your teeth missing, the team at PGA Dentistry can perform *All-on-4® dental implants in Palm Beach Gardens to restore your smile and confidence.
What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is a dental implant procedure that replaces all your teeth with only four implants. Each post is strategically placed in different parts of the jawbone to hold the entire arch of teeth. All-on-4® is an ideal solution for individuals looking to replace most or all of their teeth.
An All-on-4® dental implant procedure can give patients many benefits so they can enjoy their new smile for a lifetime. Some of the common advantages include:
One Surgery and Fewer Implants
Many people avoid getting single dental implants because of the time and extent of the surgery for each tooth they need to replace. All-on-4® eliminates that issue by replacing an entire set of missing teeth with a single surgical procedure. It’s less time and fewer invasive treatments.
The implants are permanently secured to your mouth, which prevents them from shifting like dentures. Dental implants are a solution that can last for decades, depending on how well you take care of them. There’s no more need to take them out at night or worry about them slipping out or loosening at an inopportune time.
Bone Grafting is Not Required
Bone grafting is typically not required for an All-on-4® dental treatment. Many of those who don’t qualify for traditional implants because they can’t get bone grafts can get this procedure instead. However, you will need to have adequate levels of bone to hold the implants in place.
Taking care of your implants requires the same effort it takes to care for your natural teeth. The best part is that you don’t have to remove them to clean them. Keeping up with your oral hygiene, brushing, flossing, and eating right can ensure that your All-on-4® dental implants will last a long time.
What to Expect
For many, dental surgery can be daunting. We like to offer solutions like sedation to help ease your mind before and during the procedure. If you have any remaining teeth that need to be extracted, we will do that first.
Next, we’ll place the titanium screws in the necessary areas of your jawbone. Typically, that’ll be two at the front and two at the back to ensure an even distribution of force when you chew. Finally, we’ll secure the bridge to the implants, give you time to rest, and you’ll get to leave with a new smile.
