Need to Know: All-on-Four Dental Implants
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A titanium post is inserted in the gum and a dental crown is fixed on top, providing a permanent and secure replacement tooth. It is possible to replace a whole row of teeth using just four or six posts.
– All-on-four implants feel more secure and natural; they may suit people who have struggled with dentures.
– Dental implants can stimulate bone regeneration which helps reduce facial sagging.
– If you have a whole row of top or bottom teeth missing, having all-on-four implants is more cost effective and less invasive than numerous single implants.
If you are missing several teeth in a row, ask your dentist about having an all-on-four dental implant.
