Serving Brentwood, Belle Meade and Green Hills Areas of Nashville TN
Maybe you currently are living with missing teeth. Perhaps you are facing the prospect of losing most or all of your teeth or are going to have them extracted. In any case, you may not be aware of one of the revolutionary methods currently available for tooth replacement. Dentists operating at the forefront of their field like Devine Dentistry actually can replace up to an entire dental arch of teeth in a single day through the All-on-4 implant system in Nashville.
For patients living with significant tooth loss, the All-on-4 system represents the best of both worlds when compared to dentures and implants
This treatment method consists of installing a full dental arch of replacement teeth, which are secured by four dental implants that are installed at strategic locations in the mouth. The replacement teeth in the All-on-4 system will not slip or shift as dentures often do, yet do not have to be removed to be cleaned. However, this treatment method also is less expensive than receiving a dental implant for each individual missing tooth, which would be an extremely costly endeavor.
However, many of the benefits of dentures and implants can be enjoyed simultaneously in the All-on-4 system. Just like dentures, your smile will be restored, and you will regain your chewing ability. These replacement teeth also produce an even, well-aligned bite, while safeguarding against the sunken-in facial appearance that often occurs with people who are living with profound tooth loss.
All-on-4 protects you against the long-term consequences of tooth loss
In many cases, when you lose a permanent tooth, the deterioration of your supporting bone structure is inevitable. This occurs because the jawbone loses the constant stimulation that previously was provided by the tooth root. Even denture wearers are not immune to this as, eventually, the jawbone re-absorbs into the body. The implants that anchor the All-on-4 system are placed strategically—often at precise angles in the front of the jaw, helping to prevent bone deterioration, which makes the All-on-4 implant system a longterm, permanent tooth replacement option.
Patients who receive the All-on-4 implant system report that their replacement teeth look and feel like natural teeth. And, because they are permanently fixed in the mouth, they will not experience the slips and shifts that can create sores or gum irritation. Cleaning your new replacement teeth in the All-on-4 system is as easy as normal brushing and flossing. Patients should take special care to floss under the arch of replacement teeth and around the implant posts to prevent the accumulation of plaque that can lead to gum disease. Most patients who were previously advised they were not candidates for traditional dental implants are in fact candidates for All-on-4.
