Are All-on-4 Dental Implants the Way to Replace Your Missing Teeth?
Many people lose teeth over time, but you don’t have to suffer and settle for hiding your smile in shame. Discover whether a treatment called All-on-4® dental implants can restore your smile with ease.
Qualifications and Considerations for All-on-4 Dental Implants
Most people are easily eligible for All-on-4 dental implants, yet not everyone is a candidate. Certain conditions and circumstances can make it risky or reduce the success of this treatment for missing teeth. Before choosing All-on-4 dental implants, consider the following factors:
- Your medical health
- Smoking, because the habit slightly reduces the success rate of All-on-4 dental implants
- If you do not have enough bone, you still may be a candidate, but some bone grafts may be necessary.
- A long-term commitment to maintaining proper oral hygiene and getting regular check-ups
- Geographical location of your dentist, which will determine how available and affordable All-on-4 dental implants will be.
Picking the Perfect Dentist
When getting All-on-4 dental implants, the most important choice you make is the dentist you choose to use. Since this is a highly specialized procedure, you want a very experienced dentist with advanced training in both surgical implant placement and complete mouth reconstruction. You may also opt for a team of specialists in each of these areas located in the same practice. Be sure to check the credentials of the dentist you choose to make sure they were trained at a respected dental school. Also, the location of the dentist you choose will affect how accessible and affordable All-on-4 dental implants will be for you.
