Adult tooth loss is a common problem. Millions are affected by it. In fact, almost 70% of people over the age of 35 have lost one or more of their adult teeth and 26% of people over 70 have lost all of their natural teeth. If you have lost teeth then there’s a way to get your great looking, healthy smile back with the All-on-4® treatment concept – an alternative to traditional dentures.
Dental implants: A modern alternative to dentures
Everyone wants a beautiful smile without missing teeth, but the idea of dentures might make you cringe. Imagine keeping false teeth in a glass by the bedside, only putting them in to talk and eat and you get the picture. Further, dentures can be painful, inconvenient and unstable… and can make chewing foods difficult. Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of San Buenaventura has a solution to give you a beautiful new set of teeth in a very short timeframe with the All-on-4® treatment concept: a full set of non-removable replacement teeth in just a single appointment.
In the past, replacing an entire jaw full of teeth individually with implants was time-consuming and costly. The All-on-4® treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants. With less implants needed, overall treatment time and cost is reduced. The unique All-on-4®treatment concept solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
A healthy smile solution
Backed by years of good clinical outcomes from studies with favorable results, dental implants with the All-on-4® treatment concept is designed to look natural and function like real teeth. After dental implants are surgically placed in the mouth, they fuse with existing bone. Like a natural tooth root they stimulate the jawbone preventing bone loss with every bite. Dentures can actually cause bone deterioration because they lie over the gums and don’t penetrate the jaw like dental implants do.
In addition to the greater health benefits, dental implants give you confidence. Eat and talk in groups without the risk of embarrassing slips and clicks that are common problems when wearing dentures. And, with proper hygiene and regular check-ups, your dental implants will last for decades.
