All-on-4® Treatment Concept
If you are faced with the possibility that you are losing all your teeth, you may feel hopeless. You may feel that your mouth and facial structure will never look the same again or be limited to the types of foods you can eat. While this may seem devastating, it doesn't have to be a permanent problem. Djawdan Center for Implant and Restorative Dentistry has solutions for you if you are experiencing the loss of most or all your teeth. Our All-on-4 treatment concept means that you can have your entire set of upper or lower teeth fixed- easily and permanently.
Why Should I Consider Replacing My Teeth?
Whether you are facing losing one tooth or multiple teeth, they need to be replaced. Some people lose teeth gradually over time as a result of tooth or gum disease, oral cancer, or other mouth issues. Other people lose their teeth all at one time because of an accident or an injury, which can knock out several teeth at one time.
Regardless of the reason to your tooth loss, it can be a serious issue. It is not only a matter of cosmetics, but also a matter of bone loss. Over time, the bone in your jaw can resorb, blood flow is reduced, and the facial structure will collapse. Dental implants help preserve the jawbone by providing stimulation that was previously provided by the natural tooth and its roots. Because the jawbone thinks there is a natural tooth present, blood flows through the bone and remains healthy.
How Does ALL-ON-4® Work?
The All-on-4® technique for dental implants makes replacing your entire upper or lower set of teeth easy! Using 3D imaging and virtual planning software, we can design a minimally invasive surgical plan to take the remaining teeth and replace them with titanium dental implants the same day. A CAD/CAM designed PMMA denture that has been fabricated in advance will then be converted at the time of surgery into a temporary hybrid fixed bridge. This temporary fixed bridge provides a protective housing for the tissue and implants while they heal. Once the implants are successfully integrated, we will begin the fabrication of your permanent, unbreakable teeth. The permanent Prettau (all ceramic) implant bridge is highly hygienic, does not chip or stain, and will not retain an odor like acrylic can.
