Many people have been asking themselves this question and are relieved when they finally get the answer. The implant procedure is known to be a safe, simple, and effective treatment for missing teeth. What many people do not know about All on 4 Dental Implants is that it may also be treated as a step in the process towards getting dental implants for anyone who needs them in their later life. This post will discuss several reasons why someone might want or need dental implants after already undergoing an All on 4 process and how they might go about adapting to life under these new circumstances.
What is All on 4 Dental Implants?
All on 4 Dental Implants is a treatment procedure where implants are placed in the mouth to act as prosthetic teeth. The holes left by missing teeth are then filled in with dental crowns, which essentially look like regular teeth. They can be attached to either the implant or the gum tissue, whichever will provide more stability. This procedure has been known to allow patients to eat and speak better than they have in years, or even decades.
Who would I be good candidate for All on 4 Dental Implants?
In most cases, your dentist would decide this based on several factors. A consultation would include a thorough diagnosis of the patient’s needs, consult with the patient’s dentist and a period of trial implants in order to see how much dental space is being created. It is recommended that your All on 4 dentist or prosthodontist perform a thorough exam and take x-rays before and after beginning your All on 4 Dental Implants. These x-rays will enable us to create crowns that fit very well and that won’t require another visit to adjust them.
What are the main benefits?
The main benefit is that, with All on 4 you avoid a long procedure to create a dental space while getting the same results. Most people also report that they feel much better after undergoing All on 4 Dental Implants, as they no longer suffer from mouth pain or headaches caused by having tooth gaps. It may take some time for patients to adjust to their new dentition. This may be why many patients choose to have dental implants later on in life.
What are the risks?
Risks include the usual risks associated with any invasive dental procedure. There is a chance of having problems with your All on 4 Dental Implants, although many patients report not having any problems during their treatment and after. If you are suffering from dry mouth, allowing plenty of time for your mouth to rest between treatments will reduce this risk. Make sure to visit your dentist or prosthodontist on a regular basis so they can assess if there is any infection or bleeding in your mouth and take any action necessary. You should also consult us right away if you experience pain or swelling around the implant site.
