All-On-4 – Sebastian, FL
Resolve Severe Tooth Loss Quickly and Effectively
While there are many ways to address significant tooth loss, there is only one option that does so quicker and more effectively than other traditional implant treatments. That treatment is All-on-4, a method that not only replaces all missing teeth in a given arch, but allows you to reap the benefits of treatment soon after your surgery is complete. At Sebastian Dental, we’re happy to provide start-to-finish convenience for patients, so you can complete your entire treatment with Dr. Pirkle by your side. To set up your first consultation, feel free to give them a call!
How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
As you can likely guess from the name itself, All-on-4 is a specific type of dental implant treatment that works to replace an entire arch of teeth using a series of dental implants placed throughout the mouth, ideally four. This is done by maximizing the most amount of bone tissue possible, enabling our team to place a restoration immediately following implant surgery. Keep in mind that this restoration is temporary and meant to give us time to create a permanent implant-retained denture, which is placed at a later date.
Am I A Candidate For All-On-4 Implants?
Whether you recently had your teeth replaced or you’ve been dealing with a denture for many years, All-on-4 treatment is likely your best option if you are dealing with severe tooth loss. While this treatment does work to maximize existing bone tissue, those with severe bone loss or other underlying conditions (such as gum disease) will need to complete preparatory treatments before undergoing All-on-4. This will be confirmed during your consultation.
What Are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?
Not only can you reap the same benefits you’d expect from traditional dental implants, but you can expect a lower cost overall. This is because you don’t have to place as many implants as you might with implant-retained dentures. Fewer implantations also means fewer surgical sites that require healing. Since the restoration is fixed, you also won’t have to worry about removing it during oral care. Eating your favorite foods is seamless thanks to the integration of bone tissue and the titanium material that makes up the implant post. Furthermore, this integration ensures a longer-lasting tooth replacement compared to traditional options.
All-On-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants
One of the most significant differences between All-on-4 and traditional dental implants is the ability to place a restoration the same day the implants are placed. Typically, several months of healing needs to occur before any restoration can be placed onto a single implant. Because of the preparation involved with All-on-4, getting a beautiful smile takes less time overall.
