If you’re looking for a permanent solution to missing teeth, consider dental implants for a great looking and long-lasting smile! All-on-4®️ dental implants at Talent Dental in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, return your smile to you with the most complete of all teeth restoration dental appliances. Dental implants are the most stable of all tooth restorations and help prevent the loss of bone in the jaw caused by missing adult teeth. They return over 70 percent of your natural chewing ability as compared to around 20 percent for conventional dentures.
Dental implants are made of three components: a metal post placed into the jawbone, an abutment placed on top of the post, and a false tooth that’s fitted onto the abutment. Using an abutment allows the false tooth to be easily replaced if it should ever become damaged, without having to replace the post. Dental implant posts are made of bio-friendly titanium metal that fuses into the jawbone, preventing any bone loss.
With traditional dental implants, an implant is required for every lost tooth. For a complete full-mouth restoration, that means a lot of surgery requiring a prospective recipient to have healthy jawbone tissues with sufficient bone mass to hold each post. All-on-4 dental implants only use four posts to replace all bottom teeth and four to replace all top teeth. All-on-4 dental implants need only eight posts to anchor a complete full-mouth restoration that delivers a complete denture solution to people who might not otherwise have been ideal candidates for dental implants.
The procedure is simple. After you’re comfortably sedated, your dentist will insert two implant screws at the back of your lower jaw and two at the front to distribute the weight and force of chewing. The procedure is repeated for your upper palate.
It’s important to take it easy for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Eat soft foods, don’t smoke, and be gentle with your mouth. Do not use straws. You may rinse slowly and carefully with a mild saltwater solution to help healing.
