All-on-4 implants are dental prosthetics that replace a row of teeth with the help of only four dental implants. The titanium implants are screwed into the upper and lower jawbone and then fixed with a denture on top.
Dr. Lemmon at Picacho Family Dental in Yuma, Arizona, specializes in a wide array of dental procedures, ranging from general to restorative and cosmetic ones, including All-on-4 dental implants.
In this blog, we’re going to explain all the things you should know about All-on-4 implants and their benefits.
All-on-4 implants are four precisely placed implants on the upper and lower jaw of your mouth. Their main purpose is to support fixed dentures and eliminate the need to get an implant for every one of your missing teeth.
Because the implants are made of titanium, they easily fuse with your jawbone and are very durable.
All-on-4 implants offer a variety of benefits. The most notable are:
The recovery time after an All-on-4 surgery is a few days. However, it will take three to eight months for the gums to heal and the implants to fuse with the jawbone.
To help the area heal, you should rinse your mouth with salt water after the procedure.
After that, you can care for your dental implants as you would your natural teeth. Brush twice a day, floss once a day, and make sure to visit your dentist at least once a year.
