Effective, Fast Restorations in Ocala, FL with All-on-4 Dental Implants
Dental implants are an effective way to replace any teeth lost in the smile. One possible way dental implants can rebuild smiles is with a specialized prosthetic applied within the same appointment as the dental implant posts are placed. Sutton Dentistry provides All-on-4® dental implants in Ocala, The Villages, and Belleview.
What Is All-on-4?
Dental implants are one of the most versatile, effective ways to replace missing teeth. In particular, dental implants can be combined with bridges or full dentures to replace some of the teeth within an arch of the smile or the entire arch, respectively. However, dentures require a lot of support in order to stay stable enough for effective treatment. This typically means placing six implants per arch and waiting for them to integrate into the jaw.
Our Ocala dental practice offers an alternative to this traditional process through the All-on-4 dental implant concept. This system provide patients with a brand new smile in a single dental visit. Four dental implants are placed within each jaw in such a way that maximum support is derived from minimum surgical efforts. Afterwards, a hybrid denture—effectively, a fixed bridge large enough to function like a denture—can be added to each arch right after placement.
The Advantages of All-on-4
The All-on-4 treatment concept offers several advantages over more standard dental implant treatments.
The most apparent advantage of this treatment concept is speed. By coordinating with a mobile dental lab that visits our office for the placement surgery, we can help you obtain a new smile within a single dental appointment. In a traditional placement, you would have to wait for multiple months for the dental implant posts to integrate into the jaw.
The restoration used also makes All-on-4 unique from implant-supported overdentures. A hybrid denture is fixed in place and can only be removed by a dentist. While the removable nature of overdentures requires them to be cleaned like traditional dentures and their bulkiness can still be felt, hybrid dentures can be brushed like regular teeth and feel more natural. When considering ease of use and comfortability, the hybrid denture is an excellent options for dental implants.
There is also the fact that All-on-4, as a brand, is made by Nobel Biocare, a company that has been involved in making dental implants and their restorations for a long time. While there are several “all-on-four” procedures involving the products of different companies, Nobel Biocare is reputed as having quality products for all dental implant needs. As such, you can trust the quality of the procedure Dr. Sutton provides to his patients.
