Can you explain All-on-4® Dental Implants to me?
A surgeon partner will strategically place four dental implants on your jaw. This placement allows the dental implants to hold as many as an entire arch of replacement teeth in place. The surgeon will give you a temporary set of replacement teeth that same day. Later, Dr. Anderson will restore your implants with a permanent set of teeth. With All-on-4®, you can walk out the door with a brand-new, beautiful smile and a vastly improved bite.
What is a dental implant restoration?
Dental implant restorations are replacement teeth secured to dental implants rooted in your jawbone. Sometimes Dr. Anderson restores dental implants with crowns, but in the case of All-on-4® dental implants, your dental implants will be restored with a fixed bridge.
When should I come in for dental implant treatment?
Not only is living with missing or badly decaying teeth hard on your self-esteem, but waiting for treatment can cause you to lose gum tissue and your jawbone to shrink. This would change the shape of your face, cause wrinkles, and require more extensive work before your dental implants could be placed.
