We’ve come a long way from dentures being your only option to replace a full arch of teeth. And that’s good news because although dentures can be a convenient way to get the teeth you need, many people still want replacement teeth that feel more like a natural smile.
Dental implants step in here, providing replacement teeth that get rooted into your mouth just like your natural teeth. Traditionally, each dental implant gets anchored into your jawbone with its own post. But if you need a full arch of teeth replaced, Mandana Kheshtchin, DDS, and Brent Woodmansee, DMD, offer All-on-4® implants to our patients at A&N Dental. With this innovative option, we can give you a full arch of teeth with just four dental implants. During the month of April, we’re offering 20% off our All-on-4® implants.
Why does this matter? Because All-on-4 implants deliver some significant benefits, including:
Less time in surgery
If you were to replace your full arch of teeth with individual dental implants, we would have to implant 14-16 rods in your jawbone, one to support each tooth you need. But if you choose All-on-4 implants, the full arch of replacement teeth can be created as one cohesive unit. Then, we can anchor it on just four posts implanted in your jawbone.
As you might expect, placing four posts in your jaw takes significantly less time than placing more than a dozen. And that means you can get your full arch of dental implants with significantly less time in surgery.
Lessened risk of complications
Additionally, fewer posts means less trauma for your jawbone. That means you’ll have less discomfort, plus fewer posts significantly slashes your risk for postoperative complications.
In the months that follow your initial dental implant surgery, your jawbone starts the work of osseointegration — or healing around the implanted post, essentially fusing it to your jawbone. That way, your tooth is rooted just like a natural tooth.
With just four posts to osseointegrate, your recovery from dental implant surgery only takes a few months. That means you don’t have to wait as long to get your replacement arch, helping you enjoy your fully restored smile faster.
All the benefits of dental implants
With All-on-4 implants, you get all the things people enjoy about dental implants with your new replacement arch — teeth that look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
There’s no learning curve to figure out how to talk or eat with your implants. Once we place the arch, you should be able to do everything you did with your natural teeth right away.
