A dental implant is an artificial replacement root for a tooth. If you’ve lost a tooth or have to have one removed, a dental implant makes a solid foundation for a new tooth.
The implant screws into your jawbone, and over time the bone grows around the implant, so it’s as stable as a natural tooth root. There’s a small connector or abutment on the implant which your provider uses to attach a denture, crown, or bridge.
Dental implants have several key advantages over other solutions for missing teeth, such as dentures, including:
The team at Rockwell Oral and Facial Surgery can provide you with all these advantages using All-on-4 dental implants, helping you regain a natural-looking smile that fills you with confidence.
All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary kind of implant the team at Rockwell Oral and Facial Surgery uses that replaces all the teeth in one jaw with a denture, using a set of four implants. The entire process takes only a single session, so you don’t need to manage without your teeth between treatments.
All-on-4 dental implants use advanced biomaterials to ensure your body doesn’t reject the implant. Production of All-on-4 dental implants is also computerized, providing you with a customized solution for missing teeth.
All-on-4 dental implants have multiple benefits. They feel just like natural teeth and work in the same way. They allow your provider to securely fit replacement teeth that match the appearance of your existing teeth, so no one need ever know you’d had dental implants. In most cases, there’s no need for bone grafts, as All-on-4 dental implants can be angled to fit whatever bone is available in your jaw.
Some tooth replacement procedures rely on support from neighboring teeth to give the replacement teeth stability, but with All-on-4 dental implants, that isn’t necessary. Having replacement teeth that behave exactly like natural teeth helps avoid putting any strain on your other teeth, gums, or jaw, and maintains the shape of your face.
Having All-on-4 dental implants helps prevent bone loss, which starts as soon as you lose a tooth. All-on-4 dental implants are also very long-lasting. If you look after them, your implants could last for many years, and potentially the rest of your life.
Your provider at Rockwell Oral and Facial Surgery can advise you on your suitability at a consultation. You do need to be over 18 to have dental implants because your jawbone has to have finished growing.
Your provider uses 3D imaging and CT scans to view the structure of your jaw in detail and has the experience and expertise to know which is the most suitable approach to replacing your lost teeth.
