Your teeth should be aligned perfectly and stay in shape but as you age, they can become weak and start loosening. This may lead to several issues, including missing or chipped teeth. To fix these problems, there may be a variety of oral surgery options – so it’s important to find an oral surgeon that you trust and can help you navigate your options.
After a consultation and analysis of your condition, our surgeons can identify whether you’re an ideal candidate for All-on-4® dental implants – a cutting edge approach that can place fully functional implants in one office visit. There are some key factors that indicate you might be a candidate for this procedure:
• Continuous pain from wearing dentures
• Loosening of teeth
• Decrease in biting pressure due to weakening or misaligned teeth
• Missing teeth
Fortunately for individuals who suffer from these symptoms, All-on-4 dental implants may be the perfect solution. A marvel of modern dentistry, the implants appear natural, and it is difficult for people to spot that they’re not real, natural teeth.
Although this solution is great for many, it’s not always an ideal solution for everyone. Individuals suffering from any critical disease, may not be an ideal candidate for the All-on-4 procedure. Since the implants are installed via surgery, it can be harmful to your health to undergo any surgical procedure if your immune system is not strong enough.
Other than that, candidates should have a healthy jawbone, adequate tissue density and gum tissues to support the dental implant. Your jawbone will support the ridge so if it’s not in good condition, the implants may not have the desired impact.
