All-On-4 Dental Implants in Marlton, NJ
All-on-4 implants are permanent full-arch fixed implant bridges.
All-on-4 is a registered trademark of Nobel Biocare, a global leader in innovative implant-based dental solutions. The brand name refers to all teeth being supported on four implants per arch, although sometimes five or six implants may be needed in the upper jaw because of lower bone density.
All-on-4 treatment entails placing two of the implants at an angle that allows a bridge to be supported at the front of the mouth, where the jaw bone is denser and stronger.
Rather than being inserted vertically, these tilting posterior (rear) implants are positioned at a 30-45-degree angle, which facilitates maximum support for your artificial teeth.
Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Plants
If you need a full arch of teeth replacing, All-on-4 implant bridges provide superior results compared with conventional dentures.
All-on-4 implants look and work like natural teeth. They provide a fast, permanent solution to replace a full arch of teeth to get an attractive smile and be able to eat what you like, without embarrassment.
The implant bridges are fixed in place so you won’t have the inconvenience of taking out dentures and putting them back in, or having to use messy dental adhesive.
A further benefit of All-on-4 implants is that they maintain facial appearance because they give you artificial tooth roots that promote bone growth as the titanium implant fuses with bone over time to become part of your jaw.
Without the stimulus of a tooth root, jaw bone deteriorates, which can ruin your smile and give your face an ageing, sagging appearance – a problem traditional bridges and dentures can’t fix.
The All-on-4 procedure places implants in a way that takes advantage of stronger bone at the front of the jaw, so there’s usually no need for a bone graft – an invasive, time-consuming and costly procedure.
Are All-On-4 Implants Right for Me?
Anyone healthy enough for a routine tooth extraction is a potential candidate for a dental implant.
All-on-4 implants are a good option if you want to replace multiple missing teeth with fewer implants or you have unsightly teeth that can’t be repaired.
People who typically choose All-on-4 implants have had dental problems for a long time, and have:
- Lost all or most of their teeth.
- Need to have multiple teeth extracted.
- Experienced jaw bone loss.
- If you have six or more healthy teeth in one arch, individual implants may be a better solution than All-on-4 treatment.
All-on-4 as a replacement for dentures
Some people who opt for the All-on-4 solution are unhappy with their existing dentures slipping out of place while talking or eating.
It can be particularly difficult managing with dentures if you’ve lost one arch of teeth but have most of your teeth intact in the other.
The bite pressure from natural teeth can damage the denture, and eating with a combination of traditional dentures and natural teeth can be uncomfortable.
