Q. What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?
A. An All-On-4 dental implant treatment can restore the quality of life for those who are suffering from edentulous (loss of teeth), near or partial edentulous. The procedure can be used to replace some or all of a person’s teeth, and is much more time and cost effective than other forms of dental implant procedures, while often offering a higher level of satisfaction and a better quality of life; both functionally and aesthetically.
Q. Why Choose All-On-4 Dental Implants Over Other Types?
A. More traditional dental implants required large numbers of screws, as many as one per tooth, to support a new set of teeth. If you are suffering from edentulous, or near or partial loss of teeth, then dental implants are one of the main solutions available. The implants themselves are made of titanium, and replace the root of the teeth, fusing with the bone cells of your jaw in a process known as osseointegration. This creates a solid structure for your new replacement teeth.
Q. What are my Treatment Options For Missing Teeth: Upper, Lower & Complete?
A.As well as single tooth replacement, Friedman Dental Group offer dental implant treatment for patient’s upper jaw, lower jaw, or in some cases complete treatment for the whole mouth.
We understand that patient’s have different needs, and one of the major differences is the location of the missing teeth. Whether you require a new upper arch of teeth, or a new lower arch, we can adapt our services in relation to bone structure and the placement of teeth.
For the patient, the upper jaw and lower jaw treatment are very similar
Q. What is Teeth In A Day?
A. The term ‘Teeth in Day’ is understandably exciting for anyone seeking dental implant treatment, but what does it really mean? At Friedman Dental Group it means that you can walk away with replacement teeth that are fully functional and beautiful in just one day of surgery.
‘Teeth In A Day’ most commonly refers to the All-In-4 treatment; a revolutionary innovation in dental implant technology and procedure which allows for a full arch of replacement teeth to be placed on just 4 dental implants. The All-In-4 treatment allows patients to have their implants fixed, and then a replacement set of teeth placed on the same day.
Q. How Does All-On-4 Help With Keeping Jawbone Health Positive?
A. When you lose one or more teeth, and especially if you are approaching edentulous, the jawbone can start to deteriorate. This is due to the under-stimulation of the bone tissue, which needs to be used in order to maintain its form and function. The alveolar is the bone that surrounds your teeth, and anchors them in the mouth.
Q. Am I A Candidate For All-On-4 Dental Implants?
A. There are not many prerequisites to having All-On-4 dental implants, but there are some considerations to make when you are deciding whether to try the treatment for yourself. Your specialist will also advice you on these factors when you arrange a consultation. The candidacy for All-On-4 dental implants is pretty much the same as for standard dental implants, but All-On-4 makes the procedure even more accessible.
Q. Is This A Lifetime Solution?
A. Which treatment you choose is all a matter of preference and is your decision to make. However, there is an amazing dental implant procedure that provides you with a lifetime solution for your teeth, and we couldn’t recommend it enough.
The All-In-4 dental implants are one of the most effective and high quality solutions available, and with only a minor amount of maintenance they can easily last a lifetime.
Q. What Can I Expect Before & After I Have The All-On-4 Implants Installed?
A. Believe it or not, All-In-4 dental implants only requires a day of actual treatment to install, and to make that happen all you need to do is arrange a consultation. Your specialist or prosthodontist will discuss aspects of the treatment with you during this initial meeting, and will assess your medical history to give you the go-ahead for the procedure.
The first thing you will notice after the All-In-4 is installed, is that you will have a full set of temporary fixed replacement teeth. These will be aesthetically appealing, and will be modeled according to he measurements taken earlier.
The full healing process usually takes about 6 months, but can take as long as 8. An appointment will be arranged around this time with your specialist, who will check that the implants have fully healed, before fitting the permanent fixed teeth.
All-In-4 dental implants require similar care to your natural teeth. You should brush and floss regularly, and avoid smoking and other habits that are bad for oral health. Your prosthodontist can advice on a course of action for aftercare and oral hygiene.
The final expectation you can have for after your All-In-4 installation, is that you will end up with a fantastic set of fully functional and aesthetically beautiful replacement teeth, that look, feel, and act as if they were your natural teeth.
