Losing all of your teeth on one or both of your dental ridges can be a devastating event. What should you do if you have lost your teeth? How are you going to replace something as precious and vital for living as your teeth? Thankfully, there are advanced techniques your dentist has available that limit the amount of surgery you need and can provide you with a functional and natural looking smile.
The good news is you don’t need an implant post for every tooth that you’ve lost. On the contrary, thanks to the innovative All-on-4 dental implant system provided by Noble Biocare, all your dentist needs are four implant posts, strategically placed to effectively absorb the full brunt of your bite’s pressure. This minimizes the amount of surgery required to replace your lost teeth with full dentures.
It’s important to be vigilant in your brushing and flossing routine while you recover from the procedure. Your implant posts take a few weeks to fuse to the jaw bone. Brushing and flossing twice a day will help to avoid complications like peri-implant diseases, which are inflammatory conditions that affect the tissues surrounding your implant. These diseases can lead to a rejection of your implant and would require more surgeries and treatment.
Maintaining your teeth regularly at home, along with checkups and cleanings with your dentist at least every six months, you can regain the function and appearance of natural teeth with All-on-4 Implant Dentures.
