All-on-4® Dental Implants
Dental implants are a landmark in the field of restorative dentistry. However, many patients find that they do not qualify for traditional implants because of insufficient jawbone tissue. The introduction of All-on-4® dental implants by Nobel Biocare™ has made many more patients candidates for dental implants. Now, Dr. Gilbert Palmieri can use just four implants to support full-arch dentures with an All-on-4® procedure at his Lancaster, PA, office. In many cases, we can restore All-on-4® implants immediately following placement. To learn more about this advanced restorative treatment, contact G.J. Palmieri, DDS & Associates, LLC today.
What is All-on-4®?
Dental implants are an ideal restorative solution for many patients with missing teeth. Implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to help provide unparalleled support for dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. All-on-4® is a advanced implant system that uses just four implants placed at specific angles to maximize bone tissue support. As a result, All-on-4® implants can benefit patients who have experienced some degree of bone atrophy following tooth loss.
All-on-4® Dental Implants Candidates
After a patient experiences tooth loss, the surrounding area of the jaw will begin to atrophy, or shrink, as the body begins to resorb bone cells. As a result, many patients will find they do not qualify for traditional dental implants because their jaws cannot provide an adequate base. Fortunately, the All-on-4® technique allows Dr. Palmieri to take advantage of the full potential of the remaining bone, helping patients enjoy the life-changing benefits of implant-supported restorations. If you have lost too much bone tissue to qualify for traditional implant surgery, you may be able to receive All-on-4® dental implants without the need for a bone graft. Dr. Palmieri can review your candidacy for All-on-4® implants during a personal consultation.
Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants
Placing traditional dental implants requires at least two surgeries, with about four to six months of healing time in between. Using All-on-4® implants, we can create a strong support system for a complete denture after a single procedure. In many cases, Dr. Palmieri can place the permanent denture immediately following surgery. Patients will not have to worry about their dentures slipping or falling out of place, so they can eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence.
Meanwhile, one of the most significant benefits of dental implants is the prevention of further jaw bone atrophy. By serving the role of tooth roots and fusing with the natural bone, implants stimulate the jaw and surrounding tissues, halting bone loss. Implants are the only restorative treatment that provides this benefit.
