Savannah, GA (PRWEB) November 28, 2017
Dental implants are considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Yet most implant solutions are time-consuming and expensive. All-on-4, also known as Teeth in a Day, provides a faster and less expensive solution for those who are missing an entire arch of teeth. For December 2017, Savannah Dental Solutions is offering a free All-on-4 consultation.
Benefits Over Dentures
Although modern dentures can look extremely realistic, dentures are fundamentally limited by their design. An upper denture features a large piece of plastic that sticks to the roof of the mouth. A lower dentures rests solely on gum tissue. Both are difficult to manage and prone to slipping, and many people have trouble chewing tough foods.
In addition, jawbone loss starts when the teeth are extracted and continues throughout life. This means that dentures generally have to be re-fitted every few years, and can contribute to a sunken, aged appearance.
Dental implants replace the tooth roots. With more than 90% of the original bite force and complete stability restored, patients can speak and laugh with confidence, and resume eating their favorite foods. Meanwhile, the implants halt and even reverse bone loss, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Benefits Over Traditional Implants
Traditional implants are frequently used to replace a full arch of teeth. However, this process requires the implants to be placed and capped, and then left to heal for many months. During the healing process, the patient must wear a traditional denture. Numerous implants are used, driving up the cost, and the patient must return to the dentist to have the final restoration fitted.
All-on-4 requires only 4 implants, minimizing the cost. The implants are immediate-load, which means that they can support a full, fixed set of teeth as soon as they are placed. Patients typically eat soft foods for a day or two after the procedure and then return to a normal diet—including tough steaks and corn on the cob. The initial teeth are made of acrylic and are fully functional, though some patients like to upgrade to porcelain teeth at some point in the future.
