All-on-4® Treatment Concept
At Gwinnett Dental Implant & Periodontal Center, we offer several dental care services that help to replace your missing or damaged teeth. Dental implant placement is one of the solutions we offer, and it can be ideal for you if you have lost or about to lose one or more teeth. If you are considering getting dental implants, there are several solutions you can choose from, depending on your dental health condition and your preferences. One of these dental implant solutions is the All-on-4 Treatment.
Understanding the All-on-4 Treatment Concept
The All-on-4 Treatment is a dental implant placement procedure, which involves using four dental implants on a jawbone to replace missing teeth. The implants are placed on the arch, with two implants at the anterior and two implants at the posterior (each corner) of the arch. The four implants are used to support a dental bridge.
Who Can Get the All-on-4 Treatment?
The All-on-4 Treatment is designed for patients who have suffered multiple tooth loss – several missing teeth (including all on the arch) or all teeth missing. To be an ideal candidate, you must meet all the dental implant requirements, which includes:
Benefits of All-on-4 Treatment
The All-on-4 Treatment concept offers several benefits compared to other teeth replacement solutions. These include:
What to Expect During the All-on-4 Treatment?
The All-on-4 treatment is just like a standard dental implant procedure. It begins with a consultation to assess your oral health and determine if you are an ideal candidate. If the treatment is determined, it is carried out in the next session, unless procedures such as bone grafting are required.
On the day of placing the implants:
After closing the wounds, a dental bridge can be attached, thus restoring your teeth on the same day. Alternatively, you can wait for the implant sites to heal before returning for another visit for the placement of the dental bridge.
All-on-4 treatment concept is a great solution for multiple tooth loss, which helps to restore your smile with minimal invasion. Call us, Gwinnett Dental Implant & Periodontal Center, at (470) 222-8983 for more information about the treatment or to schedule an appointment.
