Dental implants replace the roots of lost teeth, but does that mean you need an implant for every missing tooth? Not necessarily. Thanks to All-on-4 in Belmont, we are often able to replace an entire arch of teeth with just four strategically placed implants. You can even get a new set of teeth on the same day as your implant surgery! Patients love the fact that they can enjoy many of the benefits of traditional implants but with a streamlined treatment process. Contact the Center for Contemporary Dentistry today to learn more about this remarkable treatment. We look forward to serving you!
During the All-on-4 surgery, we place four dental implants in the jaw. Two go toward the front of the bone, and two go toward the back. This strategic placement utilizes areas of the bone that are naturally strong and thick, which means that most patients do not require a bone graft. Immediately after the implants are in place, we restore them with a provisional denture. After a healing period of a few months, we replace the provisional denture with a permanent one. Once the treatment is complete, you should have a stable, beautiful, and strong smile that has the potential to last for many years.
Generally speaking, candidates for All-on-4 dental implants in Belmont:
If you are not sure if All-on-4 is right for you, schedule a consultation with us. Most patients do qualify, either immediately or following some preparatory treatments.
Some of the most outstanding benefits of All-on-4 include:
In most cases, All-on-4 treatment is faster and less costly than traditional full-arch dental implant treatments. It is also less invasive because it usually requires just one surgery as opposed to two or more. Of course, there are instances where traditional treatment is the better option. For example, using more implants could make your new teeth as strong as possible. Plus, traditional implant treatment can rebuild any number of teeth, rather than being limited to full arch replacement. As your implant dentist in Belmont, we will help you compare all of your options before you decide exactly how you want to replace your missing teeth.
