The Best Substitute for Dental Implants
If you’re missing most or all of your teeth, you may think that you’ve explored all of your options when it comes to their replacement, but dental implants or dentures, whether complete or partial, are no longer your only options. Centre Dentaire Limbour now offers a treatment concept known as All-on-4® (AO4). This procedure replaces missing teeth with permanent upper and lower teeth, fixed on four implants!
Traditional dental implant restorations may require anywhere from six to eight implants, or more, per arch. The AO4 technique places only four implants per arch, and these implants are placed on an angle, which allows them to take advantage of the natural support of your bone. With traditional implants, when a patient’s tooth loss is accompanied by bone loss in the jaw, the patient in question is either deemed ineligible for traditional dental implants, or requires reconstruction of the jaw bone via bone grafting. With All-on-4®, these patients can avoid this often time-consuming process.
When compared to traditional implant restorations, All-on-4® is a quicker, more cost-effective, and less invasive treatment. The healing time is also greatly reduced, which means that before you know it, you’ll have fully functional, natural-looking replacement teeth that will allow you to eat or drink foods that you never could before.
