If you are missing several teeth, it’s likely affected how you feel about yourself. Missing teeth can lead to health problems with the gums and teeth and decreased self-confidence. If the teeth are not replaced, you may even lose bone in the jaw and your face can shift over time. This leads to more missing teeth, changes to your bite and more discomfort. Fortunately, at PerioWest, we offer All-On-4 dental implants to ensure that you can have a happy, healthy mouth in little time.
How Does It Work?
If you are missing many teeth, it would be hard to have an implant placed for each one. This would require extensive surgery and would take years for your treatment to be complete. That’s where the All-On-4 procedure comes in.
With this treatment, all teeth are replaced with four implants. The implants are placed in the jaw, become part of the jawbone and function as a bridge for a crown or other type of tooth replacement. This means that all your teeth can be replaced with just four implants rather than one for each tooth. These implants are placed in the same day, so you walk out the door with a better-looking, healthier smile.
Is This Right for You?
Every patient is different, and every mouth is unique. Therefore, it’s important for you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sanchez for a consultation before deciding which treatment path you want to pursue. Good candidates for All-On-4 are those with dentures or those who are close to losing all their teeth.
Why Choose All-On-4?
This is an affordable, fast solution to a problem that affects millions of Americans. Once the implants are placed, you have teeth that function exactly as your normal teeth would. Caring for them is simple. All you must do is brush twice a day and floss once, and make sure you see the dentist twice a year.
