What are All-On-4 Dental Implants, and Why Choose Them?
The name of these implants says a lot about what they are and how they work. With just four titanium implants placed strategically in your mouth, you can have beautiful pearly whites for the rest of your life. All-On-4 dental implants take advantage of your existing jawbone density; the density required to secure the four titanium implants differs from what is required with traditional dental implants. Conventional dental implants require a much higher degree of jawbone density.
All-On-4 dental implants are placed in your jawbone to support several teeth, as in a dental “bridge.” Traditional implants may require up to eight implant posts, while only four are used with this amazing innovation—even with full mouth restoration!
There are many advantages to All-On-4 dental implants, including:
- 45-degree angulated implants for ultimate comfort
- Less invasive than traditional dental implants
- Fewer visits to your Las Vegas implant dentist are required
- Patients with osteoporosis make good candidates for the procedure
- No bone grafting is typically necessary
Your Las Vegas implant dentist will discuss the benefits of dental implants vs. dentures. Some patients are excellent candidates for the All-On-4 dental implants, while other patients may be great candidates for traditional dental implants, mini dental implants, or traditional dentures (partial or full sets).
Mini dental implants can also be placed without bone grafting, and they are a great option for people who, for whatever reason, cannot have invasive oral procedures.
Maybe there’s a medical condition that precludes you from having minor or major surgical procedures, or maybe it’s just your preference not to undergo an invasive procedure at this time. Whatever the case may be, a compassionate, knowledgeable Las Vegas reconstructive dentist will discuss with you any and all treatment options that would improve the health and aesthetics of your mouth and smile.
