Improve Your Smile with All-on-4 Dental Implants
Are you a New York City resident who is missing all of their teeth, or has so many missing or diseased teeth that your only option is to remove your remaining teeth and have a full mouth restoration? If so, you are likely researching which full mouth restoration option you would like to choose. And while dentures may sound like a simple solution, you shouldn’t discount newer technologies including the All-on-4® Treatment Concept. But what exactly is this new treatment? Read on as Dr. Kissel – one of the few dental professionals in New York City to offer All-on-4 – explains.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the newest, and best type of tooth replacement option available. With a dental implant, your tooth isn’t just aesthetically replaced, like with a bridge, and it isn’t removable, like with dentures. Instead, a dental implant includes placing a titanium rod into your mouth, mimicking your root and the way it stimulates your bone growth, thus preventing bone resorption and gum recession – both common side effects of missing teeth. The titanium rod is then covered with a natural looking and feeling tooth crown, giving you the most natural tooth replacement option available in New York City today.
What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Most dental implants are designed to hold one or a few dental crowns. But with All-on-4 dental implants, your entire 28 teeth are replaced with just four titanium dental implant rods in your upper mouth, and 4 titanium dental implant rods in your lower mouth. This is made possible because the top two outer implants are longer and tilted to avoid the sinuses, and the bottom two outer implants are longer and tilted to avoid your nerves. And instead of just supporting a tooth per titanium rod, with All-on-4 implants, each jaw supports an entire arch of teeth.
What’s the Benefit of Getting All-on-4 Dental Implants vs. Dentures?
New York City residents like you experience several benefits of All-on-4 dental implants. First, All-on-4 dental implants function like natural teeth. They have titanium rods, which mimic the missing teeth roots, thus stimulating the growth of your jawbone. All-on-4 dental implants are also the most natural looking and feeling tooth crowns, providing you with an aesthetically appealing appearance. All on-4 dental implants are also a permanent solution that you do not remove and that won’t shift or move as you are eating or talking. On the contrary, dentures must be removed daily and can shift as you eat or speak. And even if you have dentures, you still might not be able to eat some of your favorite foods. Finally, dentures do nothing to prevent bone resorption and gum recession from occurring.
